Wedding Save The Date Email Wording

RSVPify’s guide to wedding save the date wording.


Since sending save the dates emails is one of our wedding trend predictions for 2019, we thought it was only fitting to put together a guide for crafting the perfect email save the date. There are a number of reasons sending save the dates are important, but whether you decide to send an email or paper save the date is up to you! We love the option of sending save the date emails as it is a huge money saver. 


Typically, your save the date should go out 6-8 months before the wedding date. Giving invitees enough lead time will allow them to block off their calendars and start making any travel plans. If you are having a destination wedding, sending the save the date up to a year before the date is recommended.


Wedding Save the Date Email Subject Line

The first thing that invitees will see is your save the date email’s subject line! You will want to make sure this catches their attention, but is also clear and to the point. There are a number of ways that you can word your wedding save the date email subject line, so here are some ideas:


  • We’re Getting Married! Save The Date.
  • SAVE OUR DATE: June 20th, 2020
  • Jeff & Amy are Tying The Knot – 6.20.20
  • Jeff & Amy’s Wedding | 6.20.2020
  • Mark Your Calendar For Our Wedding…6.20.2020

Save The Date Email Wording Examples

Like a paper save the date, the content of your save the date email can be kept concise! Remember, this is simply an announcement of your wedding date. There are a few key pieces of information to include in your save the date email:


  • Name of the couple
  • Wedding Date
  • Location / Venue
  • Mention that an invitation will follow

If you would like to provide guests with additional information, we’d recommend doing this through a wedding website. You can include the link to your website on your save the date.
