    We sent our Save-The-Date Cards to everyone, but only because I’m anal like that. I think it’s perfectly okay to send Save-The-Date Cards to just Out of Town folks. However, keep in mind that a lot of people do not know what Save-The-Date Cards are and will think they are invitations (despite not including important wedding info on them). Several of our guests kept refering to our Save-The-Date Cards as our invites. I didn’t correct them, I just politely nodded. They’ll get the picture when they get the actual invite lol.

    We had this debate too. We invited 120, 88 of whom are Out of Town, so then it seemed silly to “exclude” the remaining in-town folks… so we just ended up sending them to everyone.

    We didn’t do Save-The-Date Cards but sending them to Out of Town guests (and maybe friends who are known to be super forgetful, LOL!) seems like a great solution and would save you a couple bucks!

    i think that’s fine! i sent them to everyone just because i was really anxious to actually get something out after planning so long. my guest list is half oot and half local.

    I honestly wasn’t going to do Save-The-Date Cards, but our wedding date got moved (closer) so I needed to let everyone know.  However, I could not justify the cost when they will just get thrown out (probably faster than an invitation), and an invitation will follow in a couple months.  I did online Save-The-Date Cards, that specifically said “Save the Date” and “please inform us of your address so we can send a formal invitation” and I still had people RSVP.  Not that it matters, I really don’t care, I just think Save-The-Date Cards are “usually” interpretted as important because they are money makers, and guests really don’t care (or understand!).
