Save the Date Rhymes

It’s five months out, and Mr. Parfait was ready to send our Save the Dates weeks ago. I caused a series of delays (just call me Miss Indecisive), including a last-minute plan to enclose a sweet two-line poem. It would add a personal touch and let people know that the enclosed item is a magnet. We came up with a few of our own, searched Weddingbee for ideas, and asked our rhyming-inclined friends for suggestions. Out of ideas, Mr. Parfait suggested we post the question on another online community.

At first, I asked him not to””I thought most of the comments would be useless, crass, and generally anti-wedding. (It ain’t no Weddingbee!) And many of them were. But we did it for fun, braced ourselves for the worst, and, 308 replies later, actually found a few gems! Here are the ones that made us smile:

We’re having a wedding, as you might have guessed/And this magnet means we want YOU as a guest!

When we met, we knew it was fate/Here is a magnet to save the date.

A magnet for you to let you know/Our wedding’s approaching, we hope you go!

When you go to the fridge to feed your face/Remember our wedding’s time and place.

Put this magnet in your kitchen/So you’ll remember when we’re hitchin’.

He popped the question; she said, “Yes!”/Now he’s renting a tux and she’s buying a dress.

Fish, chicken or beef tonight/We’re getting married, you’re coming, right?

You might remember this date in your head/To be safe, here’s a magnet with the date we will wed.

Good company, good food and good wine/Please be there when I make her mine.

Like this magnet on metal, we’re joining together/So make sure you’re there when we make it forever.

A small reminder for you to keep/Of the day your friends took the leap.

Instead of eating that leftover meatloaf/Come to our wedding in April, you sweet oaf.

We’re getting married a little later/Keep this on your refrigerator.

Before you eat too much to easily digest/Remember this date to fit in your dress.

____ and ____ will soon exchange vows/Then culminate the night with bow-chicka-bow-wows.

Our wedding is what this magnet’s about/So if you can come, just give us a shout!

Save the date, we hope you come./There will be cake, OM NOM NOM NOM!

We’re still deciding on which one to use. If it were your magnet, which one would you choose?

Or if you can do better, please give us a hand. A rhyme from the hive would be just as grand!

    ahahaha this is so awesome! I like the simplicity of this one: “When we met, we knew it was fate/Here is a magnet to save the date!”

    This one made me laugh my head off:
    “When you go to the fridge to feed your face/Remember our wedding’s time and place.”

    Heehee, I was a big fan of the “feed your face” one, too.

    @alundberg: Yes, that’s what they’re here for! Use ‘em up~

    @Bennie: Lol, Mr. Parfait does. : )

    I love: “He popped the question; she said, “Yes!”/Now he’s renting a tux and she’s buying a dress.” but I would probably combine it with another, since you wanted to let your guests know it was a magnet.

    What about:
    “He popped the question; she said, ‘Yes!’/Now he’s renting a tux and she’s buying a dress./ When we met, we knew it was fate/Here is a magnet to save the date!”

    or

    “He popped the question; she said, ‘Yes!’/Now he’s renting a tux and she’s buying a dress./Save the date, we hope you come./There will be cake, OM NOM NOM NOM!”

    (the last one makes me giggle everytime!!)
