How can I announce on the save the dates that we will be convalidating our marriage, so there isnt any confusion as everyone knows we have been privately married in the past?!
will most people know what we mean if i state:
“Join us in the convalidation of our marriage”

I would put it as a vow renewel, if someone said “join us for rour convalidation of our marriage” I would wonder what I was getting myself into!

yeah, i say vow renewal as well. i had NO idea what convalidation was.

I just feel like it is a little too soon to say vow renewal since weve only been married for a year .. eek.. I may not have any other way to do it though!

Could you just do something more generic and avoid the phrasing all together? I’ve seen a lot of save the dates that only have the couples’ names and wedding date (and maybe a general location, e.g. NYC, NY). I think your formal invitation will have enough information about the convalidation ceremony, that you don’t need to explain it on the save the date, too. 🙂

I think that sounds like a good idea!

Does everyone already know you are married?
Did you have a ceremony and reception when you got married a year ago?
Either way I think you could still say something like “join us in celebration of our marriage” and it would still fit.

Everyone knows we are married. We had a bridal shower, but everyone knew we were going to have a private ceremony (just him & i & parents)
& no reception.

I wouldn’t put Convalidation because my first glance at your post I thought you meant the other which would be embrassing for your guests to think.
I would do as the others say and do the Save the Dates as “Save The Date April …
Then when you do the wedding invites you can put join us as we celebrate our marriage
