So after months of planning a traditional wedding circumstances with my family made it so having our traditional wedding would be impossible. I could not have a wedding without certain very important members of my family there. So my fiance and I decided to go to a sandals resort and have a weddingmoon just he and I. The debate now is, with sandals you can create a registry, would it be tacky or offensive to send out announcements before we go with registry info on it in case ppl want to give a gift or contribute in any way? Almost everyone on both of our sides of the family are aware of my family’s situation. I want ppl to be able to give us gifts if they want but do not want to upset anyone or make them feel we are only sending the announcements in an effort to receive gifts or money. We simply just want to inform ppl of our plans and give the opportunity to give if they want to. Any advise would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I don’t think you can send a wedding annoucement before you are actually married, and I don’t think you can send out registry information unless you are actually inviting the person to the wedding. What you can do is let people know what your choice is and maybe make up moo cards with your pictures on one side and a wedding website on the other. That way the can go onto your website and see where you are registered. Make sure you update it with wedding photos when you have them, though!

@red_pepper_gal:thank you that is an awesome idea! We already made a wedding website with our previos plans and ordered std’s and invitations and returned them all. It was a very sad time. But we are excited about our wedding again and it feels good, and even though we won’t be having guests there we want to be able to share our happiness and excitement with them somshow. I do have a dumb question though, what is a moo card?

Moo cards are like business cards- only smaller and edgier.
