Wedding Invitations & Paper


Do we need to put our full names on the Save the Date? Is it as formal as the invitation? Example: If the groom's name is Theodore but he goes by Ted, what name do we put on the Save the Date?

Re: names

  • Ted would be fine for a STD. I've gotten a few with shortened names.
    Nicknames that are shortened versions of names like Mike, Tom, Joe, Jess, Kate, etc. I think are fine.
    Invite I would definitely go with the full name.

    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14
  • STDs are informal, so full names are not needed.  I would include last names, though.  Invitations are formal correspondence, no matter how casual the wedding.
