    So I ordered my save the dates the other day, well in advance as I won't be sending them until the very end of November this year, but we wanted them to be our xmas cards as well (photo's of them are in my album if you want to see what I mean) so I thought I would take advantage of the new year sales. Found a great deal and ordered 3 boxes of 10 cards on a 3 for 2 deal saving myself £20 perfect!!!
    Well they arrived this morning and I've been sent the order twice (checked all my invoices and defo only paid once)! So I now have 60 personalised STD's. The thing is we can only have 65 day guest!! So I was thinking, as I don't want to have loads of STD's go to waste (and as we are getting married on New Years Eve) would it cause too much confusion if I sent STD's out to my Evening guests as well as my day guests? Will people be disappointed if they receive a STD then later find out they're only invited to the Evening?
    What would you do?

    Did you not have evening guest who assumed they were invited to the whole day because they received a STD? I just don't want to upset anyone

    I wouldn't send save the dates to evening guests as I wouldn't want them to think they were being invited to the whole day. They could book time off work in preparation etc. only to find they didn't need to. If I did send save the dates to evening guests I would send "save the evenings" so there'd be no confusion xx

    I sent my save the dates out along time ago. We had too many that's the only reason we sent them to all guests

    Given that you are getting married NYE I don't think there's any harm sending to all guests as the people you want there for the evening may arrange to do something else for it so wouldn't then be able to come. If they have a STD they would know you have arranged something in advance.

    Emily makes a good point - I'd forgotten it was NYE you were getting married. I think a STD in some form may be wise in that case, unless you just send your invitations out earlier x

    I sent STDs to evening guests too, for yours being NYE I'd definitely get them out to evening guests x

    You could send 'save the evening' cards to your evening guests that way there is no confusion as to when they are invited x

    I think I will send them to all then! The thing is because they're already printed (the extra one's weren't ordered just a surprise) they read "Please Save the Date as we are getting married on 31st December 2017 in St Austell, Cornwall Formal Invitations to follow" If I wrote a note saying something along the lines of "we'd love you to join us in the evening" would this look weird? Thank you for all your opinions so far!!

    Not if you included a list of nearby hotels so that people can prepare and book those in advance if they wish to.

    Could put that in all.

    I don't think that would look weird at all, they will want to know which part of the wedding they are invited to and that's a polite way of letting them know :)

    I would write the extra note in them just to be sure there was no confusion. X

    We sent save the dates to evening guests as we had a few left over. We just wrote a little note on the back saying we would like them to join us for the evening.

    We've been using our spare save the dates to invite people just to the church to watch the ceremony such as some of the ladies in my pilates class. I think some of them are more excited than some of our day guests lol as they're always asking questions about how its going. X

    Send them to the being guests as well, especially as its NYE.
    You could always print off something yourself instead of hand writing on them?
