You do not have to send STDs to everyone you plan to invite.  However, everyone you send an STD to must receive an invitation to the wedding.  We sent 50 STDs but we will be sending 80 invitations.

I went a similar route with two familes we’re inviting. Despite the eldest child of each having graduated college, they both live at home. I just sent the Save the Date to the “Smith Family.” I’ll figure out if the eldest kids get individual invitations later.

We did STDs by household, whereas the formal invitations will be parents get one, adult living at home gets one, etc. That kind of thing. I also didn’t send one to a few people b/c I didn’t order enough. Oops. But they knew they were invited and the STDs were primarily for out of town family and people i knew would put it on the fridge (it had a great engagement picture on it).
