    Gwendolyn88:  If you are not sure of what you are doing, I would call it a Wedding Celebration, as that would be accurate in either case.

    Gwendolyn88:  People are not expected to reply to a STD. You can use whatever return address you choose, strictly for USPS requirements.

    Gwendolyn88:  Do you need to specify at all? Typically STD’s don’t have that much info anyway,

    ours are saying –

    Save the Date

    For the wedding of *** & ***

    (Date)

    (City)

    and that’s it!

    People really just need a date to block out in their diary and you can provide the rest of the info when you send the invites! Just another idea 🙂

    Miss_E_xx:  They can’t say “For the wedding of so and so” if it is just a wedding reception without a ceremony, because “wedding” assumes a ceremony.

    I like “wedding celebration”. My wedding invitations said “celebration of (our) marriage” even though it did include a ceremony.

    For the return address, I would be consistent and use whatever address you’re planning to use for the RSVPs.

    Ours said SAVE THE DATE-9/20/14-So & So

    If you have picture you could just say save the date and list the date…that’s it.

    One thing I have learned in this process “Keep it simple stupid” not that anyone is stupid..just a saying I say to myself.

    caritas:  They can say that for the STD.. there are no specific rules. OP can be more specific on the actual invitation. Its just an idea!

    Agree with MrsBP:  simple is good! as long as they have the date, the rest can come later when you have everything confirmed 🙂

    My save the dates just had two pictures and a calendar that said Lauryn and Chris Save the date May 10, 2014 and the location. I think people knew we were getting married. You don’t have to specify if you are unsure. You can also put Tying the knot or getting married.
