My wedding is this October, and I’m planning on sending my STD by mid-May. Most people are learning of the date by word of mouth (or just asking), but I figured for some – it’ll be nice to get this information now so they can plan. We are having a small family-only wedding, and then a larger ceremony. Most of the STD’s I’ve seen for wording include the word s”wedding” or “marriage”, and my mom thinks this will make people assume that they’d be invited to it versus just the reception.
Would using a phrase like, “Save the Date for our wedding celebrattion” be something that could be used for all invitees? Or, do I just keep it simple and say “Save the Date!” and hope people know that it implies of the event.
I know some people are not keen on having a small wedding/large ceremony, but that is what we are doing.

It’s a bit confusing here when you use the terms wedding/ceremony. I think it will be confusing to your guests too, if you continue to use these terms. I think you mean ceremony/reception.
If you do mean that you are inviting guests to the reception only, I think you can still just ask them to save the date. The explanation will become clear when they get the actual invitation.

Haha I know STD is save the date, but I still think something else everytime I see it! I was gonna say, umm, well there really is no way to word it, its all the same!
