Just wondering what the wording is supposed to be for the save the date cards? For the inviations we are going to do xxx& ccc invite you to the wedding of their daughter aaa & lll, IYKWIM? does that come into play for the save the dates or is it just the wedding of aaa & lll will be taking place on the 24/07/09 etc?

We're just having the following: Mary and John will be getting married on the 31st December 2008 in Dublin so please save the date! (invitation to follow) I don't think there's any "proper" way of doing save the dates - well not that I'm aware of anyway!

No problem! I initially thought the "invitation to follow" bit was a bit strange but I read somewhere else that some people may think that the Save the Date is actually an invitation and get confused that there's no time/specifics on it!

If you're getting married next year, a good way to do it would be to send them out with your Christmas cards - we did that Christmas '07 for our wedding August '08. We just had: [i:2cbsi5ax]Recently_Wed and H2B Will Be Getting Married in Dublin Saturday 2 August 2008 Please Save The Date! Invitation To Follow [/i:2cbsi5ax]
