Really, the only people that need STD’s are the ones who live far away and need to make travel plans. You will be fine just sending invites to those extra people you decide to invite.

We are month twins =].

You still have a long time before you need to send STD’s… you will probably have your guest list figured out by then.

We plan to send out our STD’s to family/friends that are over 2,000 miles away 1 year in advance. We wanted them to have plenty of time, as some of them will need to save, and our family is full of planners.

Family/friends who are closer will recieve their STD’s around the 7 month mark, with invitations being sent around the 5 month mark [hopefully we get the RSVP’s around the 2 month mark].

@dreamer1288:  I think STD’s are really only required for those who have to spend alot of time traveling/taking off work, ect. They really need to know ahead of time so they can save money/purchase airfare, ect.

Our date is October 3rd, 2014!

I would only send Save-The-Date Cards to people you know you are definitely inviting. You can send people an invitation if they didn’t get an STD, but not the other way around.

Don’t send Save-The-Date Cards until your guest list is final.  Only people who get an invite should get a STD. Save-The-Date Cards are completely optional.  They’re best when you’re having a destination wedding or just want to give people a year’s notice.  Personally, I think everyone should get one.  I wouldn’t send them to some people and not others.
