@MrsFarm0619:  As I understand it, Save the Dates came about for exactly this reason. They don’t have to go to EVERYONE on your guest list, just the ones that will need to travel to get to your wedding, so they have a longer time to plan.

Just seems like at that point you might as well just send out STDs.

If these family members already know about your upcoming wedding I don’t see the point of sending anything. I’m sure if you called or send an e-mail they can just write it on their calender, that way you don’t have to spend ANY money! Or you could send the photo electronically and they can print it off if they want to or just keep in on their conputers.

@MrsFarm0619:  The only risk with sending them out to a fraction of the guest list is that people might be offended.  It could seem like out-of-town-auntie is an A lister while home-town-uncle is on the B list and doesn’t get a save the date.

We didn’t send ours to local people (all of whom happen to be our parents’ friends).  We’ll be sending out our invites pretty early, and I figured my mom’s friend Sue didn’t need my face on her fridge for 9 months.

Everyone in a group (ie family, college friends) either got them or didn’t get them.
