If you just got hitched, chances are you’d like to yell it from the rooftops! But I have a more convenient way of sharing the news with everyone: wedding announcements. You can send this stationery to people who either couldn’t attend your big day, or came just short of making the guest list. An announcement is a great keepsake for friends or family who couldn’t be with you during your wedding. These announcements are typically ordered around the same time as your wedding invitations so you have them by the time you tie the knot. Have a bridesmaid or groomsmen drop them in the mail on the morning of your nuptials – this way, all of the recipients will receive the announcement in a timely manner.
Before you send them off, you must figure out exactly how you would like to share the news with everyone. You could say it in a way that’s short and sweet, like “We said ‘I do!'” or you could opt for a more formal statement such as “Announcing the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” Either way, I have a few wedding announcements to send your way so you can decide for yourself!
Golden Glory – Faux Glitter
Share the big news with gold, glitter and polka dots! This modern announcement evokes elegance and playfulness. Plus, you get to choose the perfect picture to put on display. The wording on this stationery is simple and to the point: “Just Married.” The phrase is written out in gold so that it matches the back of your announcement.
I absolutely love the title of this announcement, because it so accurately depicts how couples feel after getting hitched – psyched! This announcement really allows your bubbly personalities to shine through with fun wording: “So psyched we got married, we are the new and improved “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” On the back of the stationery will be a picture of you and your new spouse completely in love.
Are you and your new spouse big fans of funny films? If so, it’s likely that you have “Anchorman” somewhere in your movie collection. This lively announcement channels the hilarious film with this quirky wording: “We’ve eloped … it’s kind of a big deal …” And we agree! The stationery is lined with modern stripes and features a picture of you and your other half.
