@g_g_dgjb:  Send them to your definite invitees.  If you don’t have your final guest list done, prioritize those you know that are guaranteed to be invited.  You can always send more later or add them to your final invite list.  We had our final guest list by the time we sent STDs, so we sent them to everyone and only ended up adding one more later.

I sent ours out to everyone that I know is getting an invitation. It is my understanding that if you send them a Save the Date they MUST get an invite. So send to everyone you know you’re inviting for sure.

I loved sending ours out it was really fun!

@g_g_dgjb:  I sent my save the date magnets out 8 months before the wedding.

Some people do it 1 year before (I think this applies to people who are doing a destination wedding)

I would suggest sending the save the date to people who are on your A -List.

We had two lists, the A list which is the people who NEED to be invited and the B List, which is for people who would be nice to invite. LoL

Only send them to people you will absolutely be inviting to the wedding.

We sent ours out 11 months before the wedding because the vast majority of our guests are from out of town, and the wedding is on a Friday. They were sent to family and close friends who were definitely invited.

haven’t sent mine out yet, but the quick answer is we’re only sending to those we 100% intend on inviting to the wedding. for the group of “undecided’s” i am not sending them StDs.

We sent them to our entire guest list in one large initial mailing. We had a few late additions and I mailed them out as we got them since we had some extra. I didn’t use this website at that point and didn’t realize that lots of people only mail them to out of towners. But our STDs came out amazingly and I wanted to send them to everyone. Particularly because most of our family is close (and close to us) and it didn’t make sense to me that those who would appreciate them most wouldn’t get one.

We are sending them out to people that we are inviting to our wedding.  That’s it.
