STD’s are not necessary.  They are a nicety when there are alot of oot guests to give them plenty of time for transportation and accomidations.

I think save the dates are for that – saving the date. It just lets people know you’re engaged and getting married on that day so that they don’t plan something else that day. Save the dates are helpful for people who are out of town and need to look for plane tickets ahead of time. It’s totally not necessary and it up to you. My sister didn’t do it, but I did for people out of state. Hope that helps!

I think save the dates are necessary for people you know are busy and the out of towners. But if all your guests are local then I’d think save the date cards can be optional…

They are very rare here in Australia – most people don’t send them out. For a destination wedding we once got a detailed email with everything we would need to know if we were keen to come.

I think they are uncessary, just tell people when it will be and get your invites to them in plenty of time!
