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!

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.  🙂

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.

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
