We’re eloping and I plan to send annoucements of our marriage to family before annoucing anything on fb. For the most part, the family is already aware but I’m sending them anyway. We’re not having a celebration but in your case I would do them separately since the dates are far apart.

Do you have a reason to keep it a secret?

Generally announcing an elopement before it takes place via snail mail is not customary. 

Sending out wedding annoucements (after the wedding) to people who weren’t invited is totally optional and that depends on you.

If you are having a celebration party soon after, I would let the invitation do the explaining. 

Mr. and Mrs. Smith were married at a private ceremony on May 14, 2012 in XYZ.

Please join us at a BBQ as a celebration of their marriage!

If there is some gap, then I’d do post wedding annoucements (optional) and then celebration party invitations.

I may mail annoucements to my close family/friends (some who don’t have Facebook) after we get our photographer’s images.  I will probably also put up some Facebook photos too.  But people know what we are doing. 

Generally speaking, I don’t post on FB when I’ll leaving my home, only after I’ve come back from a trip.

@ItsAmandaYall:  Ah, yes, that makes sense then!

I think I might do a website just for close friends and family and have a password for it. 

We may have a one year anniversary party at our home.
