You don’t have to. I initially wasn’t going to do them, but I’m having a Destination Wedding and want to give people a heads-up to book hotels and travel info. But if its local, I don’t think its necessary.

We aren’t sending them because we don’t want to spend the money and want as low a return rate on our invites as possible (lots of extended family we don’t know are invited). I’m just writing in our Christmas cards like, I hope we see you at our wedding on August 10 in the Hudson Valley.

No you don’t and we aren’t. I never really understood the point of them. Especially when it doubles your cost of postage in your budget! I figure the 3 month advance of the actual invite is plenty of time for people to arrange thier lives, and those that can’t probably don’t want to be there too bad. (Especially since we are getting married very near to our hometowns).

Nope! But for our Save-The-Date Cards, we are having “business cards” set up and tossing them in with the Christmas cards. So economical!

You don’t have to. We aren’t, we just told people or emailed them or whatever.
