I decided to use electronic save-the-dates since my wedding website has an app that sends them automatically to everyone on your guest list. It was a little form where you enter the info you want, type a little personal note if you want, then click “send.” I left the time area blank, because I do not want people focusing on the time of the event, I would just like them to save the date. I similarly left blank the venue address and a few other boxes that I found irrelevant at this time. There was an option to “view preview” and it looked perfect, so I sent it out. Immediately, my fiance pointed out to me that the save-the-date has the ceremony and reception start-time listed as 12:00pm. Aggghhhh!!!!
First of all, I didn’t even want to list a time, so IDK how this happened. Secondly, I’ve never known whether 12:00pm is noon or midnight! lol. (but not lol).
What should I do?! Send out a follow-up email, explaining the mistake? Or should I re-send the save-the-date with the correct time. Wouldn’t either option just confuse people?

What is the actual time?
12pm is noon.
What day of the week is your wedding? If it’s a weekend, it may not be a big deal, if you send out your actual invites 8 weeks in advance with the accurate time I can’t see people being too confused. Do you have a wedding website? Put the correct time on there.

12pm=Noon. If your wedding is at a time totally different than that, resend them, but otherwise I wouldn’t stress. I don’t think most people notice those details anyway.

The wedding starts at 2:00pm. (thanks for the clarification about noon vs. midnight, lol. I’ve ALWAYS sucked at that!)
It’s a destination wedding and I’m providing a shuttle from the hotel to the ceremony so in my opinion, guests really needn’t worry about the exact start time. Only confusing part is that the ceremony and reception both seem to have the same start time according to the error.
I’m thinking no one will even notice and sending a followup email might cause additional confusion in addition to being a tad bit tacky. My fiance is worried though.

@Overjoyed: It’s just the save the date, so hopefully people will just think about the date. Could you send a message out to everyone? Or…you could just send out the invitations (will they be paper or electronic?) with the correct time and just pretend it never happened…

@peachacid: the invitations will be paper and will be going out in April. I don’t mind sending out a message to everyone, but I’m just concerned it’ll call attention to a mistake that most people would not have noticed in the first place as well as confusing people.

If you’re really worried, you can email. Otherwise, triple check your invitations and make sure they’re right before sending!

@Overjoyed: I would just let it slide. It’s in a few months, and hopefully no one will notice. People’s plans aren’t going to change dramatically due to a two hour difference…they’ll still book hotels for the night before/after, etc. The timing “difference” doesn’t affect what people will wear, either. I think it’s fine to ignore it and then just send out the invitations in April.

Nobody will pay close enough attention to the STD for this to matter. It’s the invite that matters. It’ll be ok!

ok thanks ladies! I just realized something I can do. We have a wedding twitter account, so I’m gonna send out a tweet that says “check your emails folks, you’ve got an STD!” (yes, I realize how that sounds. It’s intentional, lol). A few moments later, I’ll send another tweet noting that the time is actually 2pm. How does that sound?
