Mystery bride and groom!
I just got a "save the date" letter. The back of the envelope is embossed with an address (nearby, but I don't recognize whose), but no name. The card inside (names and date changed) says on the front:
Sharon and Dave
are getting married
October 21, 2004
Inside, it says:
We look forward to celebrating this special occasion with you.
Invitation to follow
That's it. WHO are Sharon and Dave?! I assume I know one or both of their families, and probably my husband will know (he is a clergyman, so this is probably someone in the congregation that we don't know well but who will invite us as a courtesy). I assume most recipients of this card will know who these people are. But I bet I'm not the only one who opened the mail and stood there with a big question mark over my head! (The names aren't really Sharon and Dave, but they are just as common.) It's a shame that someone spent all that money -- it's a very nice card, on very heavy cream paper with a tiny gold bride and groom embossed on it -- and left out such seemingly important information as the identity of the couple!
