The purpose of the wedding announcement is to inform friends and family who aren’t invited to the wedding about your marriage. These days, wedding announcements are more commonly used for destination weddings, where a minimal group of people is able to attend but the couple still wants to announce their wedding to all of their friends and family.
Wedding announcements should be sent either the day of the wedding or the day after. You can assign this task to someone in the wedding party or a family member, but you should have all announcements assembled, addressed, stamped and ready to go ahead of time.
You can create a wedding announcement by simply changing the wording on your wedding invitation, or you can choose an entirely new design. Wondering about what to use for wedding announcement wording? Read our post, Proper Wedding Announcement Wording and Etiquette.
