I really don’t think it’s a big deal. We didn’t send everyone an STD even though I made enough becasue we are disorganized like that. In reality, we decided to hand deliver the majority over the holidays but sicne we didn’t actually see everyone, we mailed a few when we had the correct addresses but didn’t mail all the rest. Since people don’t expect an STD, they don’t notice when they don’t get one. In fact, I think you could easily skip your brother if he is anything like mine, he would not know what to do with the STD anyway as long as he knows the date. You could also skip your parents if they are not the kind to save the card or skip those people who have already declined.

My mom happens to be one of those people who would want to receive an STD anyway so she can keep it as a momento of her daughter’s wedding.  You might want to ask your mom if she’s ok with that before you skip her STD.  🙂  Brothers usually don’t care about keeping random pieces of paper, so you can definitely skip him though!

Otherwise, could those DIY Save-The-Date Cards double as thank you cards?  If so, just spring for the extra box and use the extras to print up thank yous.

You can also make a color photo copie (maybe even 2- or 3-up to a sheet) on card stock and cut them out.

I don’t think you need to send them to any of your immediate family. Although brothers do tend to ignore the details so maybe just make 3 extra and send them to people who don’t know anyone else coming (so they can’t have a conversation about them).

I didn’t send them out to everyone. We sent them to the Out of Town guests, first. Our extra cards got lost in the move 😉

I agree that you should just think of 3 people who wouldn’t miss them, and not send them to those people. We’re not sending Save-The-Date Cards to everyone on our guest list, just the out of towners!

I skipped out on sending a few to the groomsmen. I didn’t have enough, and they would only throw them away or leave them somewhere anyway, so I figured who cares? I’ll send them to people who appreciate them. And it was fine!
