I would send announcement after the wedding, or have someone send them for you the day of the wedding/ day after (which is when it is usually done). I wouldn’t send them before, since announcements are to announce “we got married”, and not “we are getting mariied”.

Include a photo of the two of you, but not a wedding photo, as they will take too long. Maybe include the website on the announcement and have your friends and family check the website for photos and updates.

We eloped a month ago yesterday, and are getting our pix back this week. We will send out announcements at that time. So a little over a month after the event. I don’t see anything wrong with that. ๐Ÿ™‚

@boraborabride:  We posted a cell phone picture that we had taken at our elopement. We are holding a sign that says “we eloped 7/26/12” (see my avitar). ๐Ÿ™‚

I actually think you *should* mail them from Tahiti. (Your hotel will be able to tell you where to get stamps and where a post box is located.) It might take a while to get there, but I think it would be fun to get mail from Tahiti. ๐Ÿ™‚
