Typically, who is responsible for sending out wedding announcements? I wasn’t planning to do them at all, but my Mother-In-Law just emailed my husband to request a wedding photo she can use to prepare the announcements they are sending out themselves. She didn’t ask us for any other input on the invitations, which just seemed sort of weird to me. I know she’s just planning to send them out to her friends/family, but I just wasn’t sure what was normal. My husband and I hosted (and paid for) our wedding on our own and my ILs are not hosting any sort of reception/party for us.
Should we be the ones sending out announcements or is it okay for them to come from my ILs?

Hmmm, I actually dont’ know what the proper etiquette is on this, but my gut says it sort of depends on who the recipients are. If the IL’s are just excited and want to announce the wedding to their friends and the family on their side, it’s probably OK. If they wanted to send them to EVERYONE, your input is needed in my opinion.
Again, not the "official" word, just my gut. I’ll be curious to see how close my gut is on this one!

Thanks, Lorienne. I think they just want to send them to their own family/friends, so I guess I’ll just let it go. Frankly, I couldn’t tell if it was just me being annoyed with her, because…well, I get annoyed with her easily. 😉
