Is this tacky?

I'm thinking FI and I (and our mom's) will just let everyone know by word of mouth or email.
Is that tacky?
Any idea of other ways to let people know without sending postcards etc.?

Just wondering, are you planning on sending out formal invitations closer to the date at all? I ask because FI and I decided to fork out the money to mail STDs, but we are not going to send out formal invitations closer to the date, we're going to do that via email since everyone will already have received their STD 9 months earlier and will have visited our website...

A postcard STD is the cheapest option though. You can get 100 postcards for about $10 on vistaprint and then postage is 27 cents on a regular sized card.
So you could do 100 postcards for less than $40 shipped.
Still, I think an email is fine. If you want to get creative, check out mailchimp or mad mimi which allows you to make an html email so you can make it decorative. Using those, you can also see how opened your email. They are free for less than 100 or so addresses.

Ok thanks ladies for the suggestions.
I think we'll make a pretty email (Morgan thanks for those sites) and include a link to our website (we're making it for free on Weebly.com) and send a letter to those folks we know aren't web-savvy.
Oh and yes, we're going to make and send invitations closer to the date. (maybe January for our June wedding...that's enough time right?)
