    I would make sure that out of town family is aware of the date but I don’t see any reason that you need to send STDs.

    You might want to check that weekend out to make sure there aren’t any major events the weekend of your wedding.  If there are then STDs would be a good idea so out of town guests know where to book their hotels and it gives oyu a reason to call them and let them know that hotels may book up fast due to X event.

    If there aren’t any events that weekend then you should be fine to send invites only.

    I am a fan of STD’s…..

    I think STD’s are a nice gesture for out of town guests that need time to arrange appropriate hotel/car/babysitter etc

    I do not think that you need to have a photo on the STD.  I personally am not a fan of these type of cards.  I kinda get freaked out seeing faces of friends/family members on my fridge for 4-8 months.

    Did you create a wedding website?  If you have a website I would suggest having the web address printed on the STD.

    @Buckeyegirl:  No need to set up room blocks right now plus as you said this is listed on the FORMAL invitations. All you need to have on the STDs is the Couples’ names, wedding date and the city and state where the VENUE is. Do you have your venue booked yet?

    You can always do a virtual STD in an e-mail. Give people deets but save the cash for something else.

    Send save the dates! About a year ago, FI was best man in a wedding. They didn’t actually tell him the date until after we had booked a vacation. We had to pay to reschedule the whole thing. It could have been avoided if they had just sent out save the dates a few weeks before. It doesn’t mean that you need a block of rooms reserved or anything like that. Just say at the bottom, “formal invitation to follow”

    I would just send them to the people out of town, that’s what we did.

    @Buckeyegirl:  Nowadays the photographers are including the engagement session in their prices. Its a great way to get a feel of how well your photographer is going to do on the day of the wedding.
