We are ordering save the dates and I am trying to decide if I should put my fiancé’s full name, Michael, or the name he goes by, mike. No one calls him Michael, but I thought it was supposed to be the full names. Should I put mike on the save the dates and Michael on the invitations to be more formal? He would prefer mike be on it but I didn’t know what was standard practice
We put informal names on the save the dates, and then went with full names on the invitations. I go by a nickname, so I really liked the informality of the save the dates while still being traditionally formal on the invitations.
I did Alex for myself on the Save The Dates, but do plan to use Alexandra for the formal invitations. I do not use my full name either, but since I will be using both of our middles names too, it make since. Alexandra B**** H********* makes more sense than Alex B**** H*********.
