There are lots of people that we can’t invite, like most people. I was thinking about sending an announcement out to those people. Is this something that most people do? I don’t see too many people talking about it. When I googled it, the pictures that came up were all wedding INVITES.
Any advice on these? Did you do them? What do they say? They aren’t a descrete way of saying, “look we’re married, we’d appreciate a gift, please”, are they? I wouldn’t want that!

We didn’t send announcements out. I don’t really see the point of them honestly, unless it’s a combination we have changed address thing.

That would be very good for giving out our address, but we’re not buying a home or anything, we’ll be moving about 2 years after the wedding, then again probably 4-5 times before we settles down somewhere. Hmmm. I’m thinking I won’t really need them. I guess I feel like I have too much going on to worry about those!
Would it be something I could send out like a month after the wedding? I heard you send them out the day of the wedding.

That seems silly to send them out the day of the wedding. Like you don’t have enough to do already.

I plan on sending out annoucements because my FIs family is VERY large and we cannot invite everyone to the ceremony. I plan on doing just a simple postcard with our picture on the front and a quick blurb saying we are now happily married and include a handwritten “love ya” type of note on each. I plan on having these prepared and mailed as soon after the wedding as possible. I just want everyone to know that we were thinking about them.

we sent them out about a month after the wedding. they said pretty much the same thing as the invite… except saying mr. and mrs. my parents are pleased to invite you to it said mr. and mrs. are pleased to announce. and then we took out specific info about the wedding and just left the date and city. i don’t think you NEED to do them, i just did it b/c we couldn’t invite a lot of family so my mom asked me to.
