    I emailed mine.  I wasn’t even going to bother, but most of my guests are out of town.  I don’t see the need to mail both a STD and an invitation.  But whatever you do, don’t use the knot email std’s.  I had SO many problems with them.  Half of them got bounced back days later, there’s no way to see who you’ve sent it to, and you can only put one paragraph of extra info.  The whole thing is just awful.

    Yeah, I had the link to the wedding website too, which is the only thing I like about the knot save the date – it was included automatically.  I think what you have in mind will work much better than ours.

    I prefer snail mail… just because I enjoy getting pretty letters lol. But I think email is fine too. I mean, Save-The-Date Cards are a fairly new concept so how can they at all be considered tacky yet? That being said, if it were email.. I would send a cute video or something.. not just a fb announcement.. ya know?

    I just love getting beautiful cards in the mail… much better than bills! hah

    If it’s a question of not doing Save-The-Date Cards or doing email Save-The-Date Cards I prefer email to nothing.

    I prefer getting one in the mail cause then I can hang it on the fridge or someother location to remember vs. losing it in my inbox.

    I wish I had never sent STD’s (although I mailed them) but if you’re set on sending them, I think either way is perfectlly acceptable! Email is of course less formal but I definitely wouldn’t say it’s tacky since the whole purpose is just to give people a heads up on the date!

    I know it offends people but I think the email is tacky. I’m old fahsioned, so maybe that biases me, but I think it’s a wedding, its’ deserving of more and I find it a little sad how our culture keeps moving away from old fashioned etiquette elements. What’s next, email invites? Besides, people love getting mail! 

    If it was email or no STD, I prefer no STD.  Again, jsut my thoughts, not trying ot offend anyone! I am the type of person who has a heart attack at the idea of not hiring a calligrapher for envelopes, so I guess take that into consideration with my opinion.

    I think emailing is fine depending on the wedding budget and # of guests. Its really your call to for postage and paper copies (or however you decide to do your Save the Dates). I do however like hanging my Save-The-Date Cards on the fridge so its a nice reminder. We are mailing ours out and I’m super excited to put them all together in the next 3-4 months 🙂
