    @lifesaride:  Hmm…I personally wouldn’t do them together, for fear that maybe some people would miss them? (Though I don’t know how one would miss that).  I’m for doing them separately, but can see the point of doing them together (save a stamp?). Haha, I’m not really too much help…

    I would also just do STD (and maybe skip the holiday cards this year) if you just want to do one mailing.  So probably not together.  Plus if you are not inviting your entire holiday card list as guests, you’d have to make two versions of holiday cards.

     

    But Josina’s came out very nice, not too much like a holiday card, but definitely an STD card.

    @Josina:  I like those! 

    @lifesaride:  I’d recommend doing something like Josina- a save the date with a happy holidays message or with a separate card in the same envelope.  I don’t think it is tacky.  In fact, a friend of mine sent out save the dates last year in December and I remember thinking it was weird that I recevied it while I was receiving Christmas cards but they didn’t say happy holidays or send a Christmas card separately or anything.

    I don’t see why not combine them.

    I really think that STDs should be held to a minimum.  You may change your mind before the wedding.  My FDh and I have told our grandparents, aunts, uncles, and first cousins and our very best friends  to save the date.  We are planning on inviting more people, but until it gets closer, and we can finalize, we are not sending everyone a STD.

    We had our STD’s in our Christmas Cards last year, and no one missed out on them.  They were Vistaprint postcards with an epic on the front, and wedding info on the back.  Then we put another Epic (printed) in as well.  So maybe a bit overboard!

    So you already have your date/location booked for the July 20 wedding? 

    Yeah, if people have to travel then 7 months out would be a good time to send STDs to those people that would need to travel.
