King James and his queen have set a date for their royal wedding.

LeBron James and longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson – the mother of the NBA star’s two children – have asked friends and family to block off the weekend of Sept. 13-15 for the nuptials in San Diego.

Guests have received a “Save the Weekend” note from the couple, featuring a caricature of the family all dressed up, grinning and piloting a plane into San Diego., which obtained a copy of the preliminary invitation, points out that that weekend might be not be the best one for the couple’s Jewish friends – as Sept. 13 is the beginning of Yom Kippur.

James, 28, a three-time NBA MVP, won his first championship last year with the Miami Heat. He and Brinson were high-school sweethearts in Ohio. They got engaged on New Year’s Eve at the end of 2011.

They have two sons, LeBron Jr., 8, and Bryce, 5.

“When it happens, it happens,” Brinson told Harper’s Bazaar on the subject of marriage in 2010. “If we do it, I want it to be forever.”
