I’ve never heard of this and would probably be offended/annoyed if I received an wedding announcement for a wedding I wasn’t invited to. Why send it to someone you didn’t invite to the wedding anyway? It’s kind of the same logic that you don’t invite anyone to the shower you aren’t inviting to the wedding.

My Fiance and I will be sending out wedding announcements after the wedding. We are having a Destination Wedding and plan to take the best 3 photos and use them to have photo announcements made for everyone.

If you want to send announcements I say send them…I think the photo ones are nice b/c then folks who were not at the wedding get to see how you looked on your big day.

I think I would be confused and maybe a little hurt (like are they just sending this so that I get them a gift even though they don’t want me at their wedding).  My Mother-In-Law insisted on doing this for some of her friends and we had a few random guests because people thought it was an invitation.

@bvig…wedding announcements are typically sent after the wedding…your Mother-In-Law jumped the gun with that one.

I think it makes a bit more sense in the case of a small destination wedding now that I think about it a little more. For a larger wedding, though, I would feel weird about it.
