I wouldn’t think they would be offended by not being invited since you haven’t seen them in 10years.  Just send a wedding announcement after the wedding.  Anything sent before the wedding will give them the impression that they will be invited.

Yea, I would send a Wedding Announcement after the wedding. My mom will be mailing announcements to all kinds of people that I don’t know… she is crazy! Haha, but really I think they will like that you at least acknowledged them in the end 🙂

We sent out wedding announcements after the wedding b/c it was really small. I think people appreciate you making that effort to give them a formal announcement, and if you explain that it’s a small destination wedding, they’re probably understand.

I think you can send them out. My mom is doing it because she is trying to hijack my wedding 🙂 But it’s perfectly fine (I think) for you to do it!

I think it’s a great idea. We will probably do the same. My goal is to get them all in order now and drop them in the mailbox the day after the wedding.

I think the wedding announcement is perfectly adequate.   I don’t think I’d send invitations to a destination wedding to people I hadn’t seen in 10 years.

Hello.  It is perfectly acceptable for you to send out “Announcements” but they should be mailed the day after the wedding so people get them within the week.

There were some lovely ones I saw, on Wedding Paper Diva or Tiny Prints.  Can’t recall but either one of those.

Jack and Jill were united in marriage on month, date, year.

Their new contact information is: [address, phone, email]

If you are religious:  Your prayers for our continued happiness is requested.  No gifts please.

if you are not:  Your best wishes for our continued happiness is requested.  No gifts please.

It is important to say “no gifts”.
