So I’m thinking about sending my save the dates addressed from my FI’s son. And the STd actually saying, “Save the date, Jennifer and my dad are getting married!”
Our theme is family, and the whole wedding is about us coming together as a family. His son will actually be the one introducing us as husband and wife at the reception.
Is this cute or weird?

I think it could be cute, especially as family is so central to what you’re doing.

Should I have it say “jennifer and my dad” on the actual STD? (We’re doing magnets.) Or should it just be on a little card inside from him with just a regular save the date?

I think it should say “Jennifer and my dad, name” that way his name is in there too.

Unless he’s actually the one sending out the STD, I think this is a little odd. Can you phrase it to read that Jennifer, Dad, and Son are becoming a family?

I think its cute but “jennifer and my dad” sounds weird, You should ad dads name also like Bunny82 said

I think it’s cute but agree you should include dads name. And id tell him/ask him about it do he’s on board.

I dont think I would do it exactly like that.
Is there a mother involved? It seems like your his step mother.. would anyone recieve them be a little pissed off?
What I would do is just put yours and his name and maybe include a photo of you all.
with something like << im the best man or whatever kind of caption. Like a little more informal but still inclusive. (dont use those words but can you see what Im getting at? more ways to approach it)

I think it’s a cute idea! What about attatching the magnet to a little card? The magnet could have a photo of him holding a sign saying “Jennifer and my Dad are getting married!” The card on the back could have your names and the date on it.

@FloretteLiz: That is a great idea!

There is a mom, but nobody would get mad about it being worded this way. He is 7 years old and the last year and a half we have had full custody for the first year and now we have joint. Everyone on Erics side despises his ex, and is so happy I am becoming part of their family.
What about, a pic of him holding a sign saying “We’re becoming a family!” and then the save the date attached to the card?
Considering his son was the one who proposed to me, he is definitely on board. I want our STD to include him, but there are SOME aspects that I want to be about just us, like the picture on the magnet.
Maybe, save the date, I’m getting a step mom! and then the actual, regularly worded save the date?

I think the idea of a regular STD (with just your names) on a magnet inserted into a picture of his son so it looks like he is holding the STD like a sign would be really cute!

I’ll toss it around until I find the perfect combo of him and us.
