jrinehart3211:  This is my favorite STD ever! Perhaps you could use the wording.

That sounds like a great idea, and no I wouldn’t worry about the seasonal difference between the STDs and your wedding.

We also sent ours out at Christmas time (last year) but they were just mini credit card ones so didn’t replace the Christmas cards, but we did send them in Christmas cards in the same envelope which saved in postage costs and made the envelope a little heavier than if we just posted out the STDs on their own.

Personally i would think it would be cute for about a month, but then I would get annoyed having a “christmas” card out for 6 months.. It has nothing to do with your wedding so it’s kind of off theme. I would just keep it simple and send out regular save the dates.

I’m not a big fan of mass mailed STDs or Christmas cards to begin with, but I just don’t think the purposes of each are compatible or that it’s appropriate to combine them. Christmas cards are about thinking of others. STDs put the emphasis on yourselves.

I ad a friend do an STD as a Christmas Card. They picked a background that wasn’t all Christmas-ey/Holiday-ish, gave the quick information about the wedding… but also had a few photos of themselves.

ETA:  There’s nothing wrong with sending Christmas cards, of course!  I just don’t like the impersonal kind that are preprinted with no personal message or signature. Adding the STD may seem less than gracious  if someone thinks that is your only purpose in thinking of them during the holiday season.

I also think that Christmas cards and STDs should be kept separate. Like PP said, the purposes are completely different. Christmas cards are intended to send warm wishes.

I personally agree that they should be separate… a Christmas/holiday card should be a greeting that you send people, whereas a Save the Date card is just giving info about a wedding. 

I’d send the STDs in January, separate from any holiday cards you send.

Of course, this is totally not a huge deal — if you decide to combine them, no one will hate you!
