I'm trying to figure out what I should do about save the dates and invitations. 
I really like the luggage tag save the dates. I would be making around 30-40 of them most likely.  If I go this route...I would also need to do a STD for the at home reception for EVERYONE we are inviting...which will be around 250-300 people. 

Do I also need to do an invite to the ceremony, or can I put these two together on one? What would the wording be?

Then last but not least I would do regular invites for EVERYONE that would be coming to the reception at home. Is this going to be SUPER pricey or what? I guess the only addition to what it would normally cost would be the luggage tag STD's. I'm at a loss for what I should do, which templates and ideas to use for what. Any ideas, thoughts? I would GREATLY appreciate it! Thanks!

Hi J - Apologies but I haven't had my morning tea yet but are you trying to combine the wedding invitation with the STD? I would keep everything seperate: - STD: that would be one mailing. - destination invite: would be mailing #2 - home reception invite: mailing #3 If it isn't too close to your date "Raquelita" over on the newbie boards had a great suggestion to include interest/reply cards with the save the date to gauge how many people planned to come or were on the fence. Those would be the ones to get wedding invitations. Hope that helps.

Sorry that did end up being a jumbled mess. I am only going to send one or the other to the guests for the ceremony in Jamaica. We aren't asking everyone to go to the ceremony, so I am not sending out the same save the dates to everyone. So I need different save the dates and different invites for the at home reception, which would also go to the ceremony guests.

Ah! Understood now! Sounds like you have lots of separate mailings.
