Is it improper etiquette to send save the dates to family and friends who have told us they can not make it? We are getting married on the other side of the country, and many guests can not make it due to financial reasons. But dont you think they would still like to be invited? I would like an invitation, even if I could not make the wedding. What do you think?

I would send it to them anyways just so they can have it. Things might change during the year and they might end up going.

I agree with Applestar, they would probably like to be thought of in this way, and who knows, their plans may change and they may be able to make it! Also, if it’s a magnet or some other keepsake that goes up somewhere until the wedding/invites go out, it can be a reminder to them of when/where it is if they’d still like to send you a gift without having to awkwardly ask later when it is again. Plus, people just like getting fun mail that isn’t bills 🙂

I think that is a good idea.
Also, do you think it is a good idea to send dsave the dates to each person, or each house hold?

I’d send one to each household.

Send save the dates to each household. Since invitations are more formal you can still send them to each household, but if there are children still living at home who are over 18 they get their own invite.

I’d send it. You can always include a note telling them that you know that they’ve said they can’t make it, but you still wanted them to know that you would love it if they were there if things changed!
