    @Carmabelle:  In previous threads about this on here there’s been a mixed response, with a seemingly more negative response overall – I think people think it’s not formal enough

    Personal experience – we did online/email save the dates and plan on doing the same for invitations with online RSVPs. People really seemed to respond well to them and we didn’t have any negative comments to us or our parents. I love paper products but I’m not willing to spend 100’s of dollars on STDs and invitations, so this seemed like a good way to do it. We made sure it looked formal enough to convey that it’s a formal occasion even without paper invitations. And I did print some off for older relatives who don’t have email. I say go for it!

    Paper STDs just seemed unnecessary to me.  All of our guests use e-mail and it was simple to just send a group e-mail with the date and location (destination wedding).   I did send out paper invitations, however.

    Save the dates are informal and a new concept so doing them online would be prefectly fine. You don’t have to send them at all so it really ins’t something that is defined. Friends of mine are doing online STD’s.

    We’re doing online Save-the-Dates and invitations for 90% of our guests. We like the idea of saving trees and money, and if people don’t want to come to our awesome wedding because of it they don’t have to 😛

    I don’t see the issue with doing them online, especially since you’ll be sending traditional invitations via snail mail. Go for it!

    STDs are fine as e-mails!
