    I didn’t vote because I don’t see a big issue here that would require you to make changes. Your/His extended family really doesn’t know you well enough to even recognize you in a picture?

    Are you inviting people who won’t make the connection?  I feel like when people see your first names and faces on the card, they’ll figure it out…

    If you have a picture of you and FI, I think you will be fine. even my extended family who Ihaven’t spoken to in YEARS know what I look like 🙂

    @maybride53114:  I’m not putting our last names on our save the date at all. The whole front is a picture and it’ll say our first names. A, my last name is super long, and B, if the people I’m inviting don’t know who we are from our photo and our first names, I don’t think I want them at my wedding! Even our Etsy stamp (probably like yours) has just our first names on it, because I liked it like that. I think you’ll be fine with them as they are!

    Maybe only on the Save the Dates to the family members that you are questioning you could hand write the return address to include last name?

    @maybride53114:  I wouldn’t change anything. STDs usually go out to family and friends not? If they do they should know who you are based off the picture and first names.

    @Jen041815:  +1… if they can’t recognize me from a picture, they wouldn’t be getting an invite, and I think you should say the same! That’s a little silly!

    TBH, if someone can’t recognize at least one of us based on our first name and picture I wouldn’t really want them at my wedding anyways. I don’t think you need to change anything.

    @maybride53114:   I didn’t vote – just wondering about sending Save the Dates to people who won’t recognize either you or your FI.   Would they want to know or to attend your wedding?   Or are these relatives who live far away and haven’t seen you  or your FI recently, but would love to come to the wedding??

    My sister’s save the date had a picture and first names only. It would’ve been fine, except my dad invited his entire office. Who didn’t know her and her husband very well (or at all). They had no idea who “Erin and Wai” were. AWKWARD.

    As long as y’all aren’t doing anything like that, you should be okay.

    @maybride53114:  hahah my sister and her FI didn’t even put their names on their STD’s! I wouldn’t worry too much! They just put on their return addresses the last name, they didn’t even have a wedding website so your safe lol 

    Those STD’s are so cute btw.

    I didn’t vote because I don’t think it’s really an issue. We only had our first names on our save the dates. If someone doesn’t know who we are based on our first names and photo, they probably shouldn’t be attending our wedding.
