Is it poor etiquette?

Most people haven't heard of OOTs, STDs sound like overkill in your case, and a program for most DWs would have hardly anything in it! Welcome dinners are definitely not needed, and depending on your situation may even be out of place. So don't worry! You know your guests best and I'm sure that what you have planned is more than enough

I too added things to my To Do list after joining several message boards. Some I'm keeping and others I'm doing without. We're going to keep some traditional elements and let other go. Like TylersGirl said you're guests will not even miss what you dont have.
I'm a strong believer that all this should be a reflection of the couple and my FI and I are too laid back for a bunch of formalities.
Don't sweat it and enjoy planning the beginning of your journey together.

For programs, I don't think you need them at all - especially if your group is small everyone knows everyone anyway. If you did want to do cheap programs, you can do them free on vistaprint (they have programs or rack cards free now) and just pay for postage..

I was in the same boat as you and thought that my DW was turning out to be just as much work as a wedding at home, if not worse cause then you have to pay to transport everything. I did add a few things to my to do list since joining BDW but we didn't do STD's, we're not doing programs, or welcome parties or rehersal party. I'm actually not even having a shower cause I really don't care for them and I don't want to ask my family to travel 2hrs to get to a silly girly thing. Instead, the afternoon of my stagette I'm getting the girls together and we're going to get a psychic to do some readings, go out to supper and have a limo pick us up to start out the night. I chose not to do anything traditional and even designed my own invitations. They only cost me $100 to make 125 of them. Anyway, after that ramble I guess I just mean that you're not alone!! do what you want to do and enjoy your wedding with the love of your life!! - Congrats on the new baby and new house!!!
