    If your guest list is that small I think just sending out an email or giving them a phone call to tell them the date should suffice!

    I’d get cheap (but nice looking) ones from Vistaprint, just to be on the safe side.

    There should be a save-the-date of SOME kind, just in case. Phonecalls/emails are fine, as long as they have something to pencil in their calendar as a reminder. You’ll kick yourself if your favorite aunt (?) can’t make it because she booked a vacation before she got your invite. It’s only 10-20 people, calling shouldn’t take too long, or postage shouldn’t be too expensive (if you do postcards they are I think 32 cents a piece)

    Each part plays an important role:

    STD, 6+ months out = Hey guys, I’m getting married! Keep that weekend open! More details to come!
    Invite 2/3 months out = Hey guys, here are the directions to the place and the time that it starts! Let me know if you can make it!

    If you are sending out S-T-D’s to anyone, you should send them out to everyone who will get an invite. Otherwise you might have to deal with hurt feelings/phone calls about why they aren’t invited!

    I am sending them to everyone we are inviting, but only because I know they will think they’re cute (well, the women will appreciate them!)  But if you don’t think your family cares whether they get an actual printed one or not, personal phone calls or e-mails are fine.
