    May I suggest Chatbooks?

    Download the app, upload the pictures, select the cover pic, add captions or not and print and ship. Strongly recommend hardback. You can be done in under an hour. No excuses. 

    ( not a paid advertising, just a super busy working mom, who is also wedding planning and looking to buy a house but who has a ton of lovely photo albums due to Chatbooks. )

    I’d let it go. Everyone knows you’re married, what’s the point of announcing it? 

    If your family wants books, can’t they order their own? I wouldn’t use this as a christmas gift though, it looks very “omg I gave you a picture of ME for your gift, arent you lucky!” lol. But if your parents want one, I dont see an issue with making one or giving them the link to make one themselves.

    Eh i really like sending greeting cards, pictures, post cards, written letters, etc. Even though i know most people dont care as much as i do, i still find it fun and it makes me happy.. so i say send both! Maybe instead of an announcement you can send a photo to everyone and like a message of “greetings” from the happy new couple for a lovely Spring.. thay way you can get the urge out of your system with something thay wont feel “too late”? People in general like getting mail.. especially good news and pictures! And for those who don’t, they can just ignore it. Yay!

    Shesaidyes :  I think itd be nice to send out photos. Even in a card? Print them and stick them in a card. Or the little photo book idea is lovely, but that would take more time and definitely be late,

    I think whatever you ahve ready already is great. You can send those little books to your mom and Mother-In-Law later, im sure the more photos, the better for them 🙂
