We didn’t do save the dates! Just an extra expense in my mind!

Nope, they’re not necessary. Don’t fret, I’ve already been thanked for my “invitations…” Many people don’t expect/know what a Save the Date is. You spread the word so you’re fine!

We skipped them too – saved a couple hundred in stamps and paper necessities. As long as you send the invites out enough ahead of time, you’re fine. 🙂

STD’s are new. My mom had to ask me what they were heehee! I wouldn’t worry about sending them out– we’re not. We are informally inviting our guests by talking to them in person, rather than sending out STD. We figure all the people we will invite we will either see or our parents will talk to long before the actual wedding.

Personally, I feel STD’s are only necessary in some way for destination weddings, or where expensive commuting is required (to give them time to save money).

I wouldn’t really worry about it as long as everyone knows well in advance that your wedding is on a Friday. On occasional reminder wouldn’t hurt so that people can request that day off work well in advance.

Don’t worry about it, as said before save the dates are kind of a new thing. I think as long as you send out the invites early enough your guests will understand. We don’t plan to have them either.

I think that’s totally fine!  My mom even wondered why I bothered to do Save-The-Date Cards.  I decided to do it mainly because ours is on a holiday weekend and I want everyone well aware of where they will be that weekend!! I also have a lot of out of town guests so I did it as a courtesy to them.  Otherwise, I think Save-The-Date Cards are pretty unnecessary.
