If you are getting married on a long weekend (as you are) then I would siggest sending them out.

CaitlinP:  As a guest I think of them as a nice heads-up, since Fiance and I like to travel a lot and typically book vacations and trips throughout the year it truly helps me to “save the date”.  As a Destination Wedding bride, I will be sending mine out 8-9 months before my wedding with my wedding website printed on it so people can check out my reccommendations for a fun weekend, hotel blocks, airport options, etc.

Some people may not agree with this, but I only sent Save the dates to my VIPs and out of town guests (we have many).  My mother is inviting some of her co-workers who I never even met before, so if an invitation sent 2 months in advance is not good enough, Im not gonna lose sleep over them not attending.  I am already overbudget, and the additional cost of more Save-The-Date Cards and postage was not necessary.  I will point out that all of my friends do not live in the location of the wedding, so I didnt pick and chose.  Also, you have to be careful with family, because you dont want to send one to Uncle Tom, but not Uncle Frank.  Our wedding is also on a Friday, so the people traveling will need to take off work one day, and most of them will fly.

We didn’t do Save the Dates.  We notified people in person or through facebook/email, just so they could get the date on the calendar.  It saved money!!!
