    I think you should write out the word “Friday”.  We would like to think that people would take the time to check their calendars, but in all actuality, they probably won’t because they will assume that it’s on a Saturday.  People can be stupid…if you think that one or two people might be confused, then it’s worth it.

    I would spell the date out, because I think people are more likely to notice thatAugust 2 is a Friday if you explicitly tell them, but I would also spell it out because many people usdifferent date formats, and 8-2-13 isn’t clear that it is August 2, some of your guests may think itis February 8, which is also a weekend.

    @koi424:  I’m having a Friday wedding and our save the date had only the date. Our formal invitations that followed said Friday, September 28th… we did have a few people mention in passing “oh it’s a Friday?” but that was early on. Anyone who is involved/cares/can read (luckily that’s most of my friends & family) will quickly figure it out and take note. All in all, either way you go it’s not the end of the world. good luck!

    Just realized you have almost a year. We only got engaged last november, picked a date in January, sent Save-The-Date Cards in late March and invites in late july-and like i said everyone knew it was a Friday. I know my parents mentioned it lots and we had over 40 people from out of town including overseas. I did email a heads up around the same time as the stds to friends and rellies from out of town just in case the std didn’t make it (some didnt) we had almost 100, and no issues.

    Just make sure there isn’t too much else on tje front of the std so the visual of the date is really clear for people.
