i think you’d be ok, three months after. i’d want to get them out ASAP though. other option is wait until christmas and announce it then with a christmas card/announcement combo. then it seems less like a call for gifts and more like "hey, here’s what we did this year!"

I agree with staceyb. 3 months seems like the tipping point of now or never. IMO, once the weddings over so is the gift giving. A lot of people only buy gifts if they’re invited to the wedding anyway.

I think including the announcement as part of a holiday greeting is an excellent plan.  It removes the appearance of a gift grab, while also letting everyone share in the news.

besides, if they aren’t close enough to know about the nuptials through the family grapevine, waiting until the holidays probably isn’t unreasonable.
