    I experienced this too. My STD’s only had 4 lines on it: our names, the date, the location and text indicating that formal invitations were to follow. With only those to read, we still got questions about when our wedding was, where it was located and how come our invitations didn’t arrive with RSVP cards. Good thing they recognized our names eh?

    When people told me they got my invitations, I replied “Oh great! You got our Save The Date cards already. Good to know that the formal invitations we will be sending in March will arrive timely.”

    I had about 1/2 the rsvps come through before the actual formal invite came.  I found it thrilling!  😀  People still enjoyed getting the formal invites, and the formal invites had a lot more info then the STD’s so I found that people brought them with them to the wedding.  Let them figure it out on their own.  Most may even know that it’s just the precursor, and are still excited to know that they are invited!

    I had 2 people do this with ours too!  I didn’t say anything, they got the invitations later and all was good.  It cracks me up that people think that!

    I had a few ppl RSVP when I sent our Save-The-Date Cards out (we did it in Feb. and the wedding is this coming feb.)  I just accepted it wth a smile and let it go.  Its not worth the explanation.  They’ll figure it out when they get the formal invitiation in the mail and actually have an RSVP card with it.  🙂

    Until then, be happy others are as excited about the day as you!!!  lol

    Hmm, I hope I don’t have this problem. I would be scared that when the formal invitation DID come, they would not formally RSVP because they “told me” when they got their Save the Date. But then again, I can just call them to confirm.
