    @missweatherlove:  Nope, not horrible at all! If you have few out-of-town guests, then they don’t really need the early heads up to plan. I don’t think it’s as much of an issue about whether or not you know your guests; it’s more that some people need to take time off or save to travel.

    I dont think it is horrible at all! I’m sending them because we are inviting over 200 people and they live all over. Why would it be bad for you NOT to send them?

    I didn’t send any out, I also didn’t tell the people I don’t like what the date is.

    I’m sending the invites out next week (:

    Not horrible to not send them! If anything it means you don’t have to finalise your guest list so early on!

    I think the only time it’s important to send Save The Dates is when you have friends/family that will be travelling as it’s good for them to have it in writing rather than word-of-mouth.

    Saying that, a friend of mine text me her Save The Date and if I’m honest, I’m just glad I had the info written down somewhere!

    There no need to send them if you don’t want to!  We opted to send them because most of our guests had to travel and we wanted to give them ample notice to make their plans if they wanted to come.  If it had been a local wedding, I don’t think I would have sent them.

    @missweatherlove:  Haha, I told the people I really wanted there the moment I booked everything. 

    I didn’t tell one of his cousin the date cause, well, long story short, i hate her, so I’m hoping she doesn’t have enough time to save up money

    We didn’t see the point of wasting all the paper and money to tell people the date. The invite list is medium sized but it’s mostly family with a few close friends, so most of them have been updated with the date by our parents anyway. Since most of our guests are coming from out of town, I sent them the website with all the information on where to stay and what to do so they could make plans in advance. The whole guest list is on the internet minus about 5 older people who are getting their arrangements taken care of by the younger generation anyway. It was effective and there is more information on the website than I could possibly put neatly on a save-the-date.
