    I do not think it's tacky at all! I did not even do a save the date. My way was probably much tackier :) We sent out the only invites we're sending (message in a bottle) in June for our April 2010 wedding. It gave people the link to our website for more info. We are also trying to save money, and the environment too! :)

      We recently received an email STD with an attachment of a postcard (scanned) with all the info. However we did send out postcards for our wedding and it only cost us $100 for 100, with customized messaging.

        I dont think its tacky either - we decided to do our invitation now in place of a save the date because everyone wanted to book right away, we are thinking that we will send out a reminder to book when we would have sent out an std - we are just doing it backwards.

          nope, thats not tacky at all. my fi and I didnt send out std's at all. Its just too much extra money I think. Our families have big mouths!! It got around and we sent out our invites early instead so that everyone could book early and lock in a great price. Good luck to you!!

            I think people forget that not every little thing is a requirement. No one even did STDs until like 5 years ago. I sent my invitations out in July for my May wedding. I was putting way too much work into them to have them just be a formality. I personally do not care for STDs.

              We just did word-of-mouth for our wedding -- no invites or STDs. I definitely do NOT think it's tacky.

                A Save the Date isn't necessary-- word of mouth or email is fine.

                  I think emailing your STD would be just fine, and could be REALLY beautiful!! Check out savethedate on Etsy - digital save-the-date = save money + save the trees . Their work is really beautiful...and who doesn't love Etsy? lol.

                    I would not worry, we sent out our wedding invitations by email. Long story short we had to cancel our original wedding so we booked ours current wedding with only 14 weeks until the ceremony. We created a beautiful invitation - looks like the one we had planned on making with paper we just did everything electronically. No one commented in a negative manner, to be honest, most responded back on how beautiful they were and what a great idea to get the message out quickly.

                    I hope this helps.
