I’d just email the out of country and out of state people to give the heads up. Otherwise it seems too late overall. Might as well wait for the invitations for everyone else.

I’m getting married 6 days before you and literally put my STDs in the mail yesterday and today. Obviously it’s later than ideal, but I say still do them. If people are coming from out of town they will appreciate the advance notice. Airline tickets are much cheaper 4 months in advance than 2.

I think it depends on how many people you have coming from out of town. If it’s like 10-20 people, just send an email or call them to let them know. If it’s a lot more people, a STD is probably just easier overall. You can get them for really cheap on Vistaprint and other sites like that.

FutureMrsT1221:  I wouldn’t send them.  Its slighly too late, but also because I don’t think save the dates are necessary.  I would do what PPs said and tell your VIPs on your OOT list when the wedding date is.  More than likely, they are vaguely aware anyway.
