    I think they are important if you have out of town guests.

    You could also just send out a STD email or set up a STD facebook page?

    I didn’t send any out. I send my invitations out eight weeks ahead of time. We however did not invite anyone we didn’t really know so since we had a two year engagement by the time we were getting married everyone knew when. If you are close with your out of town guests then just make sure they know what day your wedding is going to be.

    I have to say this was THE most exciting part of the process for me.  My husband actually helped with this, and everyone just seemed to LOVE LOVE them!  We did magnets from MagnetStreet.com.  Just a cute pic of me and him from a wedding we attended a few months prior.  And the date.  I still have like 25 of them left over cuz I didn’t know how many to order, lol.   People will hang them on their fridges and so I feel it is not a wast of money at all.  It is the first declaration of YES you are getting married!  It was too exciting for me.  Just my opinion and little story.

    @Smith12: Pretty much this. If you have out of town guests (or guests that would need to request time off) you should send them so they have a heads up and time to make arrangements. If there aren’t many, a STD email could work to save some money.

    We’re not sending them out, I’d rather save the money. The people I really want there (my relatives) have known the date for a while and I keep making sure they have it on their calendar.

    I would just call your brother, his wife, and old friend. People in town will have plenty of time when they receive the invite, IMO.

    By The Way, we won’t be sending save the dates.

    I really feel that Save-The-Date Cards are best for destination weddings.

    Other then that, word seems to natually travel through family/friends that live in other states, about the date of the wedding.

    My only feedback is to please send them. As a guest who had to cancel an international trip because we had no clue my FH’s close friend was getting married that weekend, please send something (even emailed save the dates)

    Everyone invited will be knowing the date by word of mouth.  We aren’t sending them

    I did send out Save-The-Date Cards and I am very glad I did as already a few of our guests have rearranged their travel plans accordingly.

    Half of our guests will be from out of town and our wedding is on a Friday so we felt it was really important to notify our guests enough in advance. That being said it all depends on your pariticular wedding details as I don’t think they are always a necessity.

    I did send them out, though I hadn’t planned to. We later decided we should for Out of Town guests and we are SO glad we did! So many people have mentioned that they got the STD and now can take time off enough in advance, and were complaining about it when people didn’t give them enough advance notice.

    *We do have several Out of Town guests and then guests around our age fall into the “work most weekends, and need to take off” category.

    mine weren’t ‘post card’s persay, they were the size and thickness of a post-card but were actually cards, in their own little pre addressed envelopes. I feel they are not important unless you are havng a wedding in which people are going to have to travel too. In my case mexico, so it seemed only fair to give people a year’s notice with the STD’s…I will follow up with formal invites 6 months before hand (for my family in the U.S.) but 3 months before hand for my family in Mexico. If most of your family is local, they will make time to come to your wedding. If you have a considerable amount of relatives out of state, maybe consider just getting enough STD’s for them.
