@SchmukalsBride:  We sent out our save the dates and booking info by email almost a year ago and if people are coming they are too book by February 28, 2013. I then got formal invites made that have out wedding date, location and wedding website on it. I think it is a nice touch to have the formal invites and if you only have 15 to 20 guests then it couldnt be that much to get formal invites done

Why don’t you just print your own very basic single sheet invites. I think tt would be wierd to not do invitations at all after the STD’s.

do the formal invitations. I did both the Save-The-Date Cards and invitations. I used Vistaprint for both and they came out really nicely and they were cheap! Got a lot of compliments on them but people appreciate having both.

I would go ahead with the formal invites. people are likely going to expect them. Considering you have a small guest count, the cost shouldn’t be that large. And they’re a great keepsake for yourself and guests.

Also, nice choice on Punta Cana..amazing place to get married!

I would definitely do some type of formal invitations.  They don’t have to be expensive or anything.  Like PP said, try VistaPrint.  Look for a $70 of $17 coupon.  They are awesome.

@SchmukalsBride:  Yes, you should still do a physical mailed invitation.  Save-The-Date Cards are not the invitation themselves, but it means they’re invited with more info to come.  Whether or not they should be formal, really depends on the feel of your wedding.  Usually invitations set the tone of the wedding (formal, casual, etc).
