probably…in an overall sense. 

but announcements may be after the fact; “hey guess what we did??”. Save-The-Date Cards before the fact; “hey keep the date available”

just my thoughts =)

@CupCakeMeg: Yep, announcements are for after the wedding and Save-The-Date Cards are for before.

i believe if you announce then it means,  you are’nt invited but just fyi we got married or weare getting married. like, we were gonna send announcements to out of state relatives. and i believe you usually get a gift if you send an announcement. If you send a STD then you are saying we are getting married, STD so you can be there.

No, they are completelly different. A save the date is sent 6-12 months prior to give all your guests a heads up so they can schedule time off from work and make necessary travel arrangements. An invitation is sent at the standard 6-8 weeks prior.

An announcement is sent shortly after the wedding takes place (no later than a week after at most) to those who were not sent invitations, typically when a couple elopes with no guests or has a very small guestlist. It serves as an announcement after the fact.

The other bees make a good case that they seem to be sepearate, but when I sent out my save the dates this month, I wrote something like we are announcing our engagement and hope you can come on Sept 1, 2012… I guess I did both because most of our guests who are getting this card did not even know we were engaged…
