The Mr. & I live far away from our family and friends so telling them face to face isn’t really any option. We are making very special handmade announcements that we feel are more meaningful to find out from than a phone call. We plan on sending them out within days of our elopement (we have to wait to print pictures from our big day to send out with them)
Here is my question…
I’m worried that once the first announcements are received those people will tell other friends and family members before they get the chance to open the announcement, i.e. my mom calling my sister before my sister has gotten the announcement or a friend posting it on facebook/instagram before other friends have found out.
We really want everyone to find out first from us, from the announcements. None of our friends or family members are particularly old fashioned or easily offended and they all approve and are very supportive of our relationship.
I was thinking about putting in a little something on the side that says “p.s. we would like our friends and family to hear the news from us first. please be discrete until everyone receives their announcements. thank you for understanding!”
The problem with that…
1. do I need to define what I mean by discrete (don’t call people or post it on social media”?
2. How are they supposed to know when everyone has received their announcements?
Any insight would be great!!
Thanks so much 🙂
