lol it made me giggle too! I actually bought a book and when the author wrote “Time to send out your STDs!” She wrote *giggle* in it. I made me smile to know that save the date is not the first thing that comes to mind when I read STD.

Haha, yep, I love when they are worded funny. I often wonder if it was on purpose or not. Like, “I got my STDs!” I’m like, oh, which? 😉

I still giggle when STD is mentioned certain ways that can make it sound humorous (ie: sexual) It’s funny!

Yes I thought that too. Im still a little new at some of the abbreviations but I thought everyone else is using this abbreviation with no problem so I joined the crowd!

I seriously almost wrote “I GOT MY STD’S TODAY” on Facebook. And the funny thing is that what stopped me wasn’t remembering what STD’s are in the non-wedding obsessed world, it was the thought of “Oh I shouldn’t put things like that on FB. What if someone is upset that they don’t get an STD”       LOL

In the healthcare world, STD’s are now called STI’s- sexually transmitted infections- as they are not all diseases.

i think i’ve started associating the STD term more with save the dates than with diseases, and i am afraid i might refer to save the dates as Save-The-Date Cards in other places, In particular, I’m afraid I might ask friends who are brides if they’re going to have Save-The-Date Cards. eeks! i hope this doesn’t happen to me or anyone else!

you know, I am so used to using abbre. here so after my Future Brother-In-Law emailed me back on my STD…

I referred save the date as STD…my Fiance saw the email and was like WTH?! 

People have dirty I gotta say lol  I guess I should stop using the word STD to avoid confusing people.

hahaha

Same way here! And if I ever read a post where someone talks about their “mum”, I alternate between a British and Australian accent.

I hope that doesn’t offend anyone. I’m totally ok with whenever you see I’m from ms you go into redneck hick voice- even though I have the cute southern accent 🙂
