Wedding announcements are an
appropriate way to notify those whom you did not invite to your
wedding but who have reason to be interested in your nuptial news.
Announcements may be issued by both the bride and the groom, or either
of their parents. The wording is similar to that on a wedding
invitation, except that "have the pleasure to announce" appears in
place of "requests the pleasure of your company". Be sure to put
these in the mail either on the day of the wedding or right after.
Never send an announcement before the wedding.
You may enclose at home cards
with your announcements. These will give out your new address after
the marriage, the date you will be in residence and an indication of
your new name. At home cards can be ordered at your stationary store
and should be worded as follows:
Mr. and Mrs. Randall Jones
Stacy Marie Hancock
After the fifth of July
456 Stanbury Lane
Everett Washington 98277

Writing and submitting
We would like to send out wedding announcements
to our friends that will not be at the wedding. We thought that
including a wallet-size wedding picture would be nice. However, the
pictures will not be developed until a month after the wedding. Is
this too late to send the announcements out?
should the announcements be just from the newly
weds or from the parents like the invitations? Should they include
the elopement date and place? Since they do not receive mail at their
home, should only their PO box be mentioned; if so, how?

I would like to announce the engagement of my

to in a while. This does not mean that they will be invited to a
wedding, (cost prohibitive,) it's simply to let them know that they
are engaged. Is this proper?

We cannot invite all of our friends to the
wedding and reception. Are announcements for friends and family who
live far away (an acceptable thing to do?) Are announcements for
friends who live in the vicinity of the church rude? When should
announcements be sent out?
Wording: Las Vegas Wedding:
We are having a reception one week later in our
home town. People are more than welcome to join us in Las Vegas, but
I don't want them to feel like we are asking them, but the option is
there. I was wondering if I should include the wedding ceremony
information as well as the reception information.
We are sending them to people we could not quite
afford to invite to our wedding. I am keeping my maiden name. Can
you give us any suggestions?
