I think you should just keep spreading the word. I mean if you have the address of these people, you should just call them. ^_^

I think mentioning it on the Christmas card is a great idea…you’ve already told the people closest to you.

Photocard from vistaprint maybe?  I can’t decide if showcasing your ring in this way borders on distasteful though.  I think I would be happy to receive one but I am laid back.

I don’t see anything wrong with doing that, but make sure that you plan to invite these people to the wedding.  It might cause some confusion if you don’t.  I know it’s not a save the date, but they might assume you will invite them because you sent them something in writing rather than them just hearing about it through other family.

Congratulations on your engagement!

Some minutes ago Fiance and i were talking about the same. His mother still doesn´t know we´re getting married (she knows we´re engaged), and he doesn´t like the thought of calling her and telling her we´re eloping but with my parents as our only guests. No one else is invited, and honestly we don´t want to have her there.

So i came up with the idea of sending a christmas card that has a little stocking inside, and we could put a “we´re getting married”-card into the stocking.

So it´s two cards in one, and she will know it is not meant as an invitation. We´d kill two birds with one stone, and Fiance will be more than happy that this way he can avoid a pretty awful conversation with her Tongue out

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with handwriting: “We’re happy to announce our engagement this Christmas!” inside the card along with wishes for a happy holiday.

Fiance and I did this! We got engaged last month. I called and emailed all of the people that I’m really close to, but I have a huuuuge family, so I thought it would be cute to send out holiday cards with a little announcement, just in case someone didn’t hear. I made them on Zazzle and it was really fun. I got a friend to take a picture of Fiance and I (holding up my left hand). Fiance photoshopped the image a little so the ring was highlighted and gave off a faint lens flare. Then I put it on a card template that I liked, and added the line, “May your holidays sparkle and shine! Love, [McVerde] and [McVerde’s FI]”. Super cheesy, I know, but I just couldn’t help myself. I just got them yesterday and they look really cute. I was surprised by how nice the quality is.
