I had a quick question. My Darling Husband and I got married at the end of Sept. in a very small ceremony, and we thought it would be a nice gesture to send out wedding announcements with a picture from our wedding day in it to all of the family and friends that were not at the wedding.
My questions is this: If some of the people who did not attend the wedding sent gifts before we were able to send out an announcement, would it be ok if I enclosed the Thank You card for their gift in with the announcement, versus sending it out seperately?
ED: I guess I should clarify some things. We had a semi-elopment wedding where we got married about 4 hours away from our hometown and only had my mom and brother, and DH’s mom and dad in attendance. We both wanted to let some of the extended family know of our marriage to prevent the ” They got married and didn’t let me know!” responses. There is also a card enclosed that has the website where our wedding pictures will be so they can view them there.
The Thank You’s are the traditional, handwritten, separate cards style thank you. I just wanted to know if I could stick them in the same envelope as the wedding announcement when I mailed them, or if I should mail them separately.

I thought you only sent announcements to friends & family who didn’t get invitations to the wedding?
You could have had some very nice friends & family who sent gifts without getting invited! (Lucky you!) I would probably send them out separately. It would seem odd to get them in the same envelope.

Technically I dont think thats “right” but I would probably do it. I think my Nana is the only person I know who who look down on me for doing it. Maybe write the thank you on the back and follow up with a call?

Unfortunately, I think they should be separate. How about creating a thank you with a wedding picture on it, and not sending an announcement to those people who already sent gifts; if they sent a gift, they know about the marriage and don’t need an announcement.

I think its more polite to send them seperatly, i think you should thank individual people for the exact item they gave you to show you opened and remember what they have contributed to your new life as man and wife… xxx

I’d send thank you cards with a photo to everyone who gave a gift and wedding announcements to everyone else who wasn’t invited.
