I’m doing a destination wedding/elopement with my fiance. What is the etiquette in announcing an elopement? Is there a nice way we can notify people that we’re now married without making is seem like we are expecting gifts?
We’ve posted our status on Facebook as “engaged,” and most of our close friends know that we are planning to elope. However, I imagine that those that we aren’t in close contact with don’t know exactly when our wedding is or what our plans are. When we return we plan to change our Facebook status to “married,” but I’m afraid if we overlooked communicating our elopment plans to anyone they might assume that they were excluded from the guest list, and we’d like to avoid any hurt feelings.
We’ll have photos of the wedding, but I’m not sure how to share them in this situation (and I don’t want to put them on Facebook). We don’t want people to feel excluded. Any ideas?
