We decided to sit down this afternoon and write out the STD postcard addresses. I’m uselessly freaking out because
1) I just realized that I didn’t put on there “invitation to follow” but I did put “save the date” and ” for more additional exciting details check out our wedding website at…” Is that terrible? Should I hand write in “invitation to follow” on the back?
2) I don’t know how formal the address should be…Like “Mr and Mrs.” obviously right?
3) how do I address families? Does it go: “To the family of Mr and Mrs Billy Joe”?
4) what do I do when I am sending an STD to someone who a) has a girlfriend but not sure if she lives with him and b) we don’t know her last name.
Ahhhh so many stupid questions. This is beginning to feel stupid.

@SweetRose2011: We did postcard STDS, too!
1) I don’t think it’s a problem. We didn’t have the ‘Formal Invitation to Follow” either, but people generally got the gist.
2) The postcard format makes it more informal, IMO. To be safe, though, I’d be sure to list only the people you’ll be inviting. (ie: If parents, but not kids, don’t say “The Smith Family.”)
3) Up to you, per above. I don’t think you need to be as precise as you would with a card or the invite itself.
4) Send to just him. Add a note, “Looking forward to seeing you and FirstName!”

when we sent ours out, for those that were a “family” iniviation, I addressed them as “Mr and Mrs. So-n-So & Family”
for the ones who have boyfriends/girlfriends, that we didnt know very well, we simply put “& guest” ..lol. in a few cases that worked out as, those “&guest” are now a different girl/boyfriends in a few situations..lol.

Tbh I DID have “formal invite to follow” on mine and a lot of people didn’t realize that it wasn’t the real invitation even so! lol I had my RSVP online system all set up prior to sending those out and got 8-10 responses before the REAL invites were sent! lol
