A “save the date” is simply a card to remind or tell your guest to reserve that date on the calendar. It is an official announcement of your wedding date and location and a sign of invitation to your wedding.
Before the use of wedding invitations, save the date has long been in use. Usually, after a save the date, a wedding invitation to formally invite you to the program is sent.
Receiving a save-the-date doesn’t necessarily require a reply, but do you want to spice things up with a humorous reply to your friend? Then pick one of these replies;

Congrats on finally finding a forever interesting topic of discussion for our con call now. I will be there.
It is a humorous and enthusiastic response to a “save the date” or wedding invitation.
It is not unusual for friends to gather to talk about their marriages; it is a topic that they can discuss all through the day, sharing their problems or exciting experiences with their spouses.
It is an interesting topic because it is a topic that never ends.
I always knew something was missing in your life as a single, but now that you have finally found your “better half” you are finished! Let’s celebrate
It is such a hilarious way to reply to “save a date”. Hope you get the trick here, when he or she was single they were incomplete, but now that they are married, they will be finished!
You just gave my parents another reason to pester me to get married. Congratulations.
This is quite a humorous way of replying while showing the reality of the situation many people are in.
Many singles, especially when they begin to get “older” start getting pestered by their friends, parents, or guardians, and it seems like everybody is putting pressure on you to get married.
If you’re in this situation, make it a reason you make someone else laugh.
This reply doesn’t show any tinge of jealousy, as even though you acknowledge your unfortunate/uncomfortable situation, you also make a joke of it and make it obvious that you feel happy for him or her by saying congratulations.
Come rain, come shine, I will be there.
This is a jovial reply to a wedding invitation or a save-a-date. Especially if it’s an open-air wedding. It shows that you will try to be there no matter what. It shows enthusiasm towards the wedding.
“If Lucas will be the groom and Mary will be the bride, then, I will be a guest.”
It is a humorously touching reply. Lucas simply implies the name of the groom while Mary the name of the bride. For example, if the name of the bride and groom in your case is Emmanuel and Martha, you will say, “If Emmanuel is the groom and Martha is the bride, then I will be a guest.”
In essence, simply substitute the name of the bride and groom in place of Lucas and Mary. While giving a jovial reply, you also show your eagerness to attend the wedding.
“I will tell you the secret of a successful marriage; it remains a secret to all! Wishing you the best for the marital journey ahead.”
If he/she doesn’t laugh after reading this, then he /she is most likely emotionless. The reply feels like whispering to the ear of the person inviting you.
The person reading the response will most likely lean forward after reading the first sentence, eager to hear the supposed secret to a successful marriage, and he/she would most likely burst into laughter after reading your response.
“You know I won’t pass up an opportunity to get a free drink! I’ll be there.”
It is an excitingly comical reply to an invitation or save a date. Although it sounds like you are just there for the food, it is obvious that you’re excited to see the person get wedded.
At the same time, you would indeed be taking a free drink, wouldn’t it? You won’t have to pay for the drink you will take at the wedding party, or a bachelors night or bachelorette’s night.
“Thanks for giving me a day to chill out, 8th July is a great day to get married. Congratulations.”
Just like the other examples listed above, the 8th here should be exchanged with the date of the actual wedding.
While indirectly implying that you will be there for the wedding, mentioning the date of the supposed wedding in your reply, conveys to the person that you have taken particular note of the wedding date they sent to you.
“Congratulations on a forever conjoined partnership!”
This is such a funny response you can give when sent a wedding invitation or when sent a save-the-date card. Marriage is indeed a partnership and is supposed to be forever.
And you are supposed to be “together forever” putting the basic facts of marriage and making a comic statement from it
“Getting married is just like being admitted to a drama school, you get to practice everything, from comedy to melodrama to tragedy. Congratulations on your admission to drama school.”
This is another innocently hilarious response you can give. And while congratulating him/her you remind her indirectly that there would be ups and downs in the marriage.
There would be good times and bad times. A whole lot of drama will begin to happen in his/her life. It’s a realistic reminder despite the fuzz over the wedding ceremony.
“Finally! Your single days are over”
This is a funny reply, however, you shouldn’t just give this reply anyhow. If the groom or bride who sent it to you is older, he or she might take it offensively.
If that is the case, then you can restructure it to something like; “Your single days are finally over” This sounds less offensive.
Also if the bride/groom has had many rollercoaster episodes before, being dumped a couple of times, or had dumped a lot of people before, being rejected by the one he now wants to marry, etc., this is a perfect reply in such scenarios.
“My dancing shoes are on, I will be there”
This is such a comical reply. It is the norm to have a dance session at a wedding, sometimes, only the bride and the groom dance first, before the guest joins in, either way, there will be dancing.
And especially if you are the type that likes dancing, then this is the reply you should give.
“Free food, here I come!”
This is another funny reply. This reply fits perfectly if it is your bestie that sent the invitation. You can spice it up by even saying.
“Free food here I come! ( it’s going to be a buffet right) or free food here I come! ( there is going to be rice there right?) Or any other food you like.
Why marry, when jumping down the bridge is easier and faster? Just kidding! Hope your wedding finds you smiling.
This is a very hilarious reply, but be careful who you send it to. If it’s a close friend who will understand that you are just joking, then it’s fine. But if you are not close to the person, though the response is funny, please use another reply.
It is commonly said that marriage is like a great institution, and like most institutions, you have to be crazy to get in! Congratulations nutcase.
It’s a funny, laughable reply. And unlike some others that you have to be careful while using, you can send this reply freely, because the substance of it being a joke is very obvious.
“Congratulations darling, may the crazy days begin.”
This is a funny reply because it’s trying to say that after the wedding crazy days would begin.
“Congratulations on your first adopted baby- your husband/wife”
This is one hilarious response that indirectly throws the truth at you in the face. Because as the husband you will now have to care for the wife and as a wife you also have to care for the husband.
As hilarious as it sounds, it is nothing but the truth. As a wife, you have to cook for him, dress for him sometimes, and take care of him like a baby, while the husband also has to buy treats for her, soothe her, and sometimes calm her tantrums, as you would do for a baby.
You guys look great together, and I wish you a happy marital life.
A simple, cute but splendid reply that can put a smile on the reader’s face
The day he/she understood your knick-knack joke, I knew it was real! Congratulations on marrying someone just as weird as you.
You can use this hilarious response to your weird friend you love. And you should reframe it to an incident that occurred, or something weird he or she did or did the day they met, or after they met.
It could be like, ‘The day you came home all smiling to yourself because he hugged and kissed you, I knew something was up, congratulations on finding your better half.’
How dare I miss the opportunity to usher you into lifelong bondage! Congrats guys!
It is a very funny response when invited to a wedding. As funny as it sounds, if you are not very close with the bride/groom who sent the invitation, then you can rearrange the statement to something like; ‘How dare I miss the opportunity to usher you to life bond together with your partner forever
If you are close to the person who invited you to the wedding, and you know that he/she won’t take it offensively then you can use it.
If however the person is most likely going to feel offended, then you can as well change it to the one mentioned later.
You don’t have to rack your brain too much anymore, over what to say to respond to an invitation sent to you, simply pick one of these.
