I did it. I can’t believe I did it. I fell victim to one of the most common mistakes us brides make.
Never assume, because as Momma Zeebs says: “it makes an ass out of you and me.”
Ass+u+me = Zebra… get it?
What is it that I assumed, you ask?
Well…I assumed every one of our guests reads wedding blogs every day. I assumed our guests would know the difference between a Save the Date and an invitation. I assumed that I did not have to write the words…
“Save the Date!”
“Formal Invitation to Follow”
It seemed like a whole lot of hub-bub just for something that was going to sit on their fridge. To me, a formal invitations says important information like, oh I don’t know, the time of the ceremony. I just assumed that it would be understood. Unfortunately I did not write that information. On the bright side, this is not a total tragedy—just a small little ha-ha moment. I’m definitely not complaining about people RSVPing a few months in advance. I am going to complain that I spent approximately $202 to notify people of the room block and no one, not a single one of our 300 guests has booked rooms since receiving their STDs. Oh well. We have our room. woot.
So, another learn from Miss Zebra, the ultimate mistake maker, moment: never assume people will understand it is a save the date unless you spell. it. out.
Did anyone else run into this problem?
