Hey,

 

So I know this will probably sound funny but I know some in my family are going to be confused by the whole "Save the Date" Card. And probably 99% of them will have never heard of it before.

We plan on sending out our Save the Dates in June sometime, for our wedding next October. I know some family members are going to be a little confused as to what a Save the Date card is.

 

So my question is, has anyone sent a little explanation card explaining what the purpose or what exactly is a Save the date Card? And thats it's not the actual invite. (I know some are going to think it is the invite...)

 

Silly I know, but I know it's going to arise in my family lol

 

Thanks!!

Hi Crystal, Just noticed you are from Whitby, I live in Oshawa we are neighbours.

 

When I finally send out my save the dates I am going to put on them formal invites to follow. STD is kind of a heads up of when the wedding and where the wedding is going to take place and gives them time to save to be able to attend

Oh wow, we just moved from Oshawa to Whitby in March lol

 

I know the purpose of the Save the Date, but I was afraid it would cause some confusion with the let's say "older" people my family who aren't too familiar with what it might be.

I was going to put on them, Invites to follow. So I guess that's good enough.

I always thought they were pretty self-explanatory, until my husband gave me a hard time about our invites cuz he thought the STD's WERE our invites! So now, I understand that sometimes people just don't know.

 

But I wouldn't send an explanation. You might want to also consider sending them a little earlier then June. Only b/c it's a DW, you want to make sure that people have enough time to make the necessary plans/save enough money to attend. I don't know why I think this, but I think 6 months is a good distance of time.

I think putting invitations to follow will be good enough. I know what you mean about the older family members not understanding what they are, I am sure they will phone someone in the family to find out what the heck these STD's are lol

My wedding is October 2010, finding out this June is giving LOTS of time to save and plan.

 

Thanks guys. I'm sure I'll get some phone calls wondering what it is, but thats okay. Just wondering if anyone else had the same issue lol
