I just know that out of all the weddings I’ve attended (quite a few I might add since I’m now 40) that there were maybe 3 std’s sent to me before an invitation.

I think it’s a relatively new thing and came about with the increase in destination weddings and also because people are less likely all to be in the same zip code these days too.

it’s a great idea and I love it but some people may just be clueless.  I also don’t get alot of engagement announcements either.

What I have gotten in the past was actually a combo of the engagement announcement and a std.  Like this “Susan and George are engaged!  Please save June 15th for a beach wedding celebration.  Invitations to follow”.

STDs are a relatively new thing – I know a lot of people who have never heard of them!

Lots of people don’t know that sending out STDs for a destination wedding is something we brides-to-be do to give guests a heads-up.  And your FI’s friend sounds like a typical guy… they’re really clueless when it comes to this kind of stuff, lol.

I’m confused…. did you send him a save the date and he didn’t know what it was or did you send it to others and he feels left out?

If you sent him one, I’m sure he was just asking because he didn’t really know what it was. I don’t think its a reason to get offended by him asking, that’s how a lot of guys are. If he didn’t get a save the date and was calling you out on it, then let him know that you only sent them certain people (family and close friends) and the actual invite will be sent out closer to the date.

I don’t think it is a big deal either; I didn’t send save the dates becaue I think most people knew when are date was well far in advance without sending it and because it just would have confused our older guests.

I don’t think he was trying to offend you and since he is a guy he is probably double the amount of clueless about it.

I would have been a little pissed off too…however i’m assuming this friend is male, and NOTHING against men, I mean we all love at least one of them, hahaha. But a lot of men (in my opinion) are clueless when it comes to anything wedding. So a Save The Date may be a little confusing to him!!!
