Q&A: Wedding Stationery: When to Send Announcements?
Q: We are having a very informal wedding with just 16 guests. We're not even sending invitations. But I do want to send announcements to those we are not inviting. When do those go out, and how are they worded?
A: Announcements are generally sent out on the day of the wedding. Usually they are worded similarly to wedding invitations:Mr. and Mrs. Peter Anderson have the honor to announce the marriage of their daughter Melissa Lynn and Robert Scott Hamilton on Friday, the tenth of June Two thousand and five St. Thomas Beckett Church Mount Prospect, IllinoisBut if you're having a very casual wedding, you shouldn't feel that you have to get formal with announcements. Feel free to announce the wedding yourselves.Melissa Anderson and Robert Hamiltonhave the pleasure of announcing their marriage etc.Or just send out personal notes to your loved ones telling them your news.
