    I don’t see why not – but I might not be the best judge, because I know nothing of etiquette regarding wedding announcements.  I think it’s a great idea, and people would probably really like to hav ea wedding photo!

    I would do it.  More people will be happy to receive a photo of you two on your wedding day than will be mad that they weren’t invited.

    I kind of just feel like if everyone knows you two already got married, the “announcement” is redundant that many months later –  Especially if they are upset they weren’t invited.  I understand that it was immediate family only, as do you, but people are very touchy about that kind of stuff.  I dont disagree that you should send out a photo to your family members, that would be nice, but I’d separate the announcement from the Christmas card.

    Super cute idea! I wouldn’t have thought about that! Plus you can save a TON on postage!

    I think you should send out separate marriage announcements with a picture before Christmas (like this month if at all possible), and then send out your Christmas cards as usual. I probably wouldn’t cut a picture out of a Christmas card, and I’d still wish that I had a wedding photo of you.

    I think it definitely personalizes an otherwise generic christmas card, so why not?!  Do you guys do like the “here’s what’s been going on with us the past year” paper thing, or just like a regular christmas card?

    @knapper – I think that is the best bet.  Just include a photo with your christmas cards.  People do that a lot, that is how we get annual photos of our nieces and nephew, little cousins, etc

    I think many people take time in Christmas cards or Christmas letters to people to recap from the year.  This was your big even and something you’re thankful for.  I say, go for it.  If it were me receiving one, I would think it was totally normal.

    Personally, I think it’s a great idea, but I would also like some advice on this topic.  I’m sorry Knapper for impinging on your post/question, but I would really appreciate any advice on this related topic.

    We had a small destination wedding back in June.  Originally, I wanted to send out an announcement right after the wedding with photos because most people have not seen them yet .  However, we still do not have professional photos yet! Ugh!!! I’m expecting to have them before the end of Nov.   I’m think it’s kinda of ridiculous to send the announcements out now since we been married for 5 months now and most people know.  However, I know alot of people still haven’t seen our pics.

    So getting to my question, do you think it’s too late to send an annoucement or do you think the x’mas card idea is better?

    I’d say include a card or do the photocards with all of the info on one side.
