(Closed) Poll: Daylight Savings Time ends on wedding weekend – Include on invitation?

posted 5 years ago in Paper
  • poll: Should I include wording with my wedding invitation to remind people of the time change?

    Yes, include it on the details enclosure card along with info on hotel block and wedding website.

    No, just post it on your website and remind people through word of mouth.

    I think people would figure out that the clocks went back an hour by the time your ceremony rolls around.  I don’t think a reminder is necessary.

    I’m going to assume that most of your guests tell time via their cell phone and those that don’t have a pretty good handle on daylight savings time. 

    I just imagine it being on there would ruin the flow of your invite.

    I don’t know, people are pretty stupid. I would make a note somewhere about it, personally, if only on the website.

    peridot456 :  I agree. Especially since you can posit it as “remember, there’s an extra hour to party the night before!” or something similar.

    I don’t think you need to post it on invitation. I would post it on your wedding website. People will also spread the news word of mouth and cell phone times will automatically change the time.

    By 4pm most people should notice. Nowadays, many clocks/cell phones/computers/cable boxes will update on their own anyways. Worst case scenario: people show up early which is better than being late and missing the ceremony.

    This is why I’m glad I live where there’s no daylight savings time. I think if you wanted to include it in the invitations you could, but I agree with PP that it’s probably not necessary. Even though we don’t have daylight savings time here, I still see a million news articles and Facebook posts and other things about the switch that I almost forget that I don’t have to.

    I think it would be a cute tidbit of information to include on the detail card although also adding it to the website can’t hurt. Not everyone reads the entire website, so you can notify more people with the card. I am good about remembering the time change, but I know not everyone is the same way.
