    The old time goal of annoucements was to send them out the day you get married (or next day) normally they were just text (no photos) and it was to get the word out there first before talk goes through the grapevine.

     

    I was married 3 months ago and I have relatives that had no idea we got married. 

    I recently made holiday cards with a wedding photo and will send it to certain family members.  Now I normally don’t do holidays cards (like ever), but I will this time.   I think tying them in with a holiday card will elimnante any gift grabbiness that one might think of when a true annoucement.  (Even though announcements are truly not gift soliciting mailings.)

    I found it hard to limit it to one photo, but I did!
