    Only a few people have though that. And they were all older than 50. So I think that the younger crowd is more hip on this kind of thing. One person who is of the older generatin that we invited was not even aware of what a STD was until I specifically told him that ours was the save the date and not the invitation, to keep the date open.

    Weird, all my guests had no trouble understanding that our Save-The-Date Cards were not the invitations! I mean, they said “Invitation to follow” right on them lol.

    Nope, but our Save-The-Date Cards were business cards.

    my save the dates were online only and people still thought they were the invitation. like, why would i send an invitation with no real information about the wedding (other than the date)? haha. but to be fair, one person said it was the first wedding she’d be invited to, so it’s understandable that she’s not familiar with the idea.

    I suspect it’s not just generational, but also what people might or might not expect based on wedding plans. For example, if you live near both families and are having a pretty traditional wedding nearby, there’s not actually a need for save the dates and that might catch people off guard.
