    An announcement is usually sent after the fact or at the earliest, on the wedding day. After all, you can’t announce that you are married until you are.

    You can have them all ready to go, addressed and ready to mail before you leave for the DW.  You can include a link to website and let people know that there will be pics added later. Leave them with someone trustworthy and ask them to pop them in the mail.

    If you are home for 3 weeks, then away for a month, you can still get thank you notes out in a reasonable period of time.In Canada we can pay a fee to Canada Post to hold the mail for a period of time, or,alternatively, have it forwarded elsewhere. Can you do that with USPS?

    What julies149 said! If you can’t get them to hold your mail, you can get a op box at the post office and ask them bout holding the packages for you there (ie forwarding all your mail to the op box while you are gone). Do not send an announcement beforehand
