I wouldn’t. We got engaged nearly 2 years before getting married and I just decided we will not be sending out Save-The-Date Cards. If you think about it, 20 years ago, no one did Save-The-Date Cards. For us, they weren’t a priority and I didn’t want to spend the extra $$ on them.

We got married 7 months after engagement, so we didn’t.  There wouldn’t have been enough time to order them, send them, etc. etc. before we wanted to actually send our real invites–because we had a lot of out-of-country guests, we wanted the real invited to go early to give them time to plan and get flights, and save-the-dates are foreign to my husband’s culture anyway.  So, no.  Not necessary!

We are getting married two weeks after you and we ARE sending out Save-The-Date Cards At Christmas time when we are both together (were long distance). The main reason is because we are getting married in the prime time for high school graduation parties and have many friends and relatives with children/family friends graduating. there are a few other small reasons That work for us.  I really think it depends on your situation for whether you decide to send them.

We didn’t and won’t be. We have told pretty much everyone we are inviting what the date is in regular conversation, email, whatever.
