You do not have to send Save-The-Date Cards to everyone you plan to invite.  However, everyone you send an STD to must receive an invitation to the wedding.  We sent 50 Save-The-Date Cards but we will be sending 80 invitations.

I went a similar route with two familes we’re inviting. Despite the eldest child of each having graduated college, they both live at home. I just sent the Save the Date to the “Smith Family.” I’ll figure out if the eldest kids get individual invitations later.

We did Save-The-Date Cards by household, whereas the formal invitations will be parents get one, adult living at home gets one, etc. That kind of thing. I also didn’t send one to a few people b/c I didn’t order enough. Oops. But they knew they were invited and the Save-The-Date Cards were primarily for out of town family and people i knew would put it on the fridge (it had a great engagement picture on it).
