@PinkBubbles:  Hmmm, you would think people would know but then theres a lot that might not. If people are used to just getting an invite without the word “wedding” or “marriage” people may not know.

My STD said this, but then I knew I was sending it to people who struggle with English and others whom have very different customs than I do.

Judith and Richard 

Are delighted to announce

Their wedding date 

July 20, 2013

Thats kinda weird. I feel like Save-The-Date Cards are pretty standard now. Do people really send them for anything else?? I can’t imagine what people would think it was for, especially since I’m assuming most, if not all, of them know you’re engaged and getting married. Thats too funny that even your brother had to ask! Good grief.

@PinkBubbles:  LOL That’s pretty awesome 🙂

I would be surprised too if I had to explain to people who had gotten them, but I’m a computer programmer the first rule we learned is “The User is Stupid” and you have to account for that. I have so much redundant/silly/stupid/should know things on my invite/STD/website etc. that its kind of frustrating at the extra work, but it helps avoid those extra questions/confusion 🙂

Lol @ your brother! That’s something my brother would do. A lot of people really aren’t familiar with save the dates. My fi thought std & invites were the same thing. I steered away from the ones that didn’t specify that it was for our wedding. I’m sure most people will figure it out.
