    I think that 'Invitation To Follow' is good.

    Attached is our save the date, they went out 2 weeks ago.

    We have gotten SOOO man compliments. They are just very "us". We aren't formal at all

        I put invites to follow on mine as well - I think this clears things up for people who don't understand what STD is...


        Can't wait to marry my best friend on April 11, 2013!

        49 Guests booked, and counting...

          Hi Everyone,

           

          I'm such a "newbie" here and my wedding is in October, 2012.  I noticed this post is really old but regarding the STD, I too am a bit confused. Is STD for the people you're inviting to the wedding, or is it meant for everyone.  If I send them STD, isn't this just the same as a "invitation"?

           

          Hmmm...do we have to do STD? My wedding location has not been finalized.

           

          Thanks a bunch ladies.

            Save the dates are for the people you are inviting to the wedding it's a way of giving people a heads up so they can save that day for your wedding. Invites usually are sent 2-3 months in advance (with all the details) which isn't always enough notice for people so it's courteous to do save the dates so people can make arrangements to attend. With a destination wedding I think it's important to invite or send a save the date at least a year in advance so people have plenty of time to save and make arrangements.

            We are doing an invite now since we already have the location booked and I need to know how many people plan on attending so I can reserve the rooms. I figured why spend the $ on stds and invites.

              Oh wow DominicanLelia, thank you so much.  I certainly have a better understanding now.

               

              Best of luck.
