First things first, hello DATE TWIN!!! πŸ™‚

No I don’t think last names are important. We just put our first names on ours. I saw lots online with just first names. I think paper or magnets are cute, but if magnets are a lot more I’m not sure its worth it. We basically sent a postcard type STD and most have them on their fridge, they just used their own magnets. πŸ™‚

We did paper but I would say go with something thick. It’s not too late but send them now.

@SimplyMrsC:  We sent ours out about a month ago. I don’t think its too late at all, we’re still 197 days out (hehe) I think you could totally send them out still. We used our engagement photos as well. I think its just something fun to send out to keep your wedding on the minds of your guests, there will still be a few months between save the date and invite so I think you’re fine. I vote to still send them and send a postcard/paper style πŸ™‚ (if you’re taking votes, lol)

I think the big question on last names is the nature of your guest list. If you have quite a few people on your list who are, say, friends of your parents who might not immediately think of you when they get the STD or even immediately recognize you, then I think you need last names. If, on the other hand, you have only your close friends and family members who you guys see often enough to recognize you two, then I think you’re fine with last names only.

@SimplyMrsC: Hmmm. If there’s quite of a bit of extended family, then I would tend to include something about last names just so they put all the pieces together. But, I’m probably overly cautious. I just recognize that I have many family members who I haven’t personally seen in decades, but they feel “in touch” because long before Facebook, we had family newsletters & massive reunion updates. I also have the same first name as a cousin, too. πŸ™‚

Can you find a place to put last names discreetly if you don’t want them in the primary design? Perhaps somewhere like a return address with both of you listed or something?
