Ex-FI/semi-bf, and I are in the midst of reconciling after a 10-month separation. The wedding has been talked about in depth, but now I’m wondering how to go about wording our STDs/invites when the time comes.
We’ve been ‘together’ for over 10 years now, so I sort of want to poke fun about us finally tying the knot, but is that in bad taste (especially after the separation)? We’re a fairly laid-back couple, and goof around a lot, but I’m worried it might come off wrong for some people. Semi-bf is torn, since he thinks a wedding should be more formal, etc.. however, he sort of wants to make light of the whole situation (us finally getting our stuff together!)..
Any ideas, or input?

I’ve seen a lot of Save-The-Date Cards that say something about “finally” tying the knot, etc. I think it’s cute if you’re a long-term couple!

I think it’s safe to play it up a little on the save-the-dates, but especially if your Fiance wants it to be more formal, you could keep the invitations themselves more traditional.

I’d say it’s okay to be a little silly with the save-the-dates, as long as it’s not a sore subject.
But I’d also say that if you’re thinking about your save-the-dates, it’s not okay to call him your semi-bf! Save-The-Date Cards and invitations = FI!

@Paper Rose: It’s not a sore subject, at all.. we actually look at this as a learning experience, and that we’ve grown as a couple because of it. It took a while to feel that way (on my part), though. LOL!
As for calling him my “semi-bf”, I do it just to bug him–like I said, we joke around a lot–he hasn’t officially ‘asked me out’ again (nor do I know for sure that he will.. how does this reconciliation thing work?!), but we’re pretty much set in stone.
Thanks for your input, ladies! For the STD, I’m thinking of something along these lines:
A bit funny, a bit informative.. cute, too. Man, it’s gonna drive me bonkers, formatting! LOL!
