We’re having a small wedding and I have been wondering if sending wedding announcements is appropriate? We have a lot of extended family that have not been invited (due to small guest list) and far away friends.
Do people send wedding announcements? Would it seem gift grabby? Would it remind people that they weren’t invited?

I think it’s perfectly acceptable if you are having a small wedding. I would make the list of people you would invite if you were having a big wedding & make that the mailing list for announcements. Emily Post says this about them:
“Printed or handwritten announcements are sent to those left off of the guest list, or to acquaintances or business associates who might wish to hear the news. Announcements carry no obligation to return a gift, and they are never sent to anyone who has received an invitation. Ideally, they should be mailed the day after the wedding but may be sent up to several months later.”

@MissPine: I think it is a nice gesture. It is so hard to invite everyone but an announcement shows you sill thought of them.
