I would also mention a location, and your wedding website (if you have one).

It sounds good! But maybe shorten the second sentence a bit..like, “Please mark your calendars with the day our families will unite”? I dunno…JoJo brings up a good point about location!

Sounds cute!  I would think about removing the second exclamation point and use “Please mark your calendars for the day on which we have decided…” instead of using with/that. Or what Penga suggested sounds great too.

crebre80 you went and changed your avatar!! shame on you I am so used to seeing diva!  Anyway, I agree add the local…if you add the wedding website it might get crowded……we skipped it on ours and will include it on a slip of paper that the magnet will be mounted to.

I agree the second sentence is a little too wordy.

My wording was:

“Save the date for the

“Wedding of A + K August x, 2010”

in town, state

For further information on travel, lodging and activities please visit (our wedding website)”

i used round stickers for the “wedding of a+k august 2010” so that people can peel them off and use them on calendars.

i thought about using, please mark your calendars, but it didn’t end up looking good on my finished product, so i just went with save the date.

I think it’s a bit wordy, but i like the newest the best, given that you don’t have a website I think it really fills in the areas that people really need to know about! :o) Great joB!

Seems like an email would be just as much work as a website, though, minus the fact that sometimes people don’t check websites! Making sure it’s not getting caught by spam filters and getting the right address… ugh, that makes my head hurt!

Hey crebre, I’d have it say “we look forward to celebrating…” instead of just “look forward to celebrating…” Without the “we,” it can sound a little like a command. I’m an English teacher, I can’t help it with these little things!
