    I think it’s fine.  Save the Dates aren’t as formal as the actual invitation.  I think it would be a better use of your time and money to just use them as they are and move on to the more important details 🙂

    Do the stamp! $12 is worth it. The sharpie looks a little goofy.

    Eh, I don’t think it’s a big deal. Did you only write the one STD, or did you write them all? I wasn’t sure from your post. If you already wrote the date on all of them, I don’t think it’s a big deal. If you haven’t, a stamp might be cute and you could certainly reuse it for other wedding projects! I wouldn’t reorder, though. Save your groupon for invitations and thank you cards.

    Oh, if you already did most of them, I think it’s fine.

    I would just send them. Why waste them? It’s not that big a deal

    I agree. Finish them up and send them off!

    I would redo them, but not for the reasons you have listed. I would write out the date so there is no chance of misinterpretation- December 7, 2013.

    Too many times I have seen people reverse the month and year e.g. the 12th of July, 2013.

    All I have to say is YAY, someone else writes their 7s that way.

    I would get the stamp.

    I would order new ones. You still have plenty of time before you need to send them out and its only $13 for a whole new set. It looks kinda silly to have pretty printed STDs with a handwritten date.
