I was not sure which category to post this in, so I hope some of you see it!
My question(s) revolve around STDs, per my post title! I am getting married next May (my date listed on my profile was a phony, as I joined before my engagement :)).
My question is regarding etiquette, if there is any at all. IF we send them, the ones I liked online were a cute/fairly informal postcard type of STD. Do I NEED to send one to every single person getting an invitation to our wedding?! What I mean is that under one roof, for example, I would be sending two formal invitations: 1 – to the parents and teens in that household, and 1 – to their other child, whom is 22 years old, and just graduated from college and living at home…
In that regards, could I get away with sending one STD to them all, and then two formal invitations later, or do I need to indicate via the STDs whom is getting an invite later?! This instance is happening for a few cases on my guest list, which is another reason I am considering scrapping STDs all together…UNLESS, you lovely bees can direct me!!
Please advise. SORRY about the length!

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.

@beachbride1216: Thank you!! That makes a lot of sense, and helps validate what I was thinking!! I think I will send one per address, and those in the household getting their own formal invite will receive it when I send those out eventually!

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).
