Wedding Announcement Wording

It’s sad, but it’s the truth: you just can’t invite everybody to your wedding. Maybe you had a small destination wedding, an intimate elopement or maybe your families are so huge you had to stop the guest list at aunts and uncles.

Don’t worry, there is a way to share your news with everyone you love — and we’re not talking Facebook and Instagram. How? By sending professionally printed wedding announcements. Everyone will know things are official when they receive a real paper announcement in the mail.

How to Create a Wedding Announcement

Creating a wedding announcement is simple! All you need to do is choose a wedding invitation you love, then change the wording to reflect a wedding announcement instead of invitation.

You can go extra fancy with a laser-cut invitation or create a simple (and affordable!) announcement from our Affordably Elegant collection. And if you want to share a photo from your wedding, we love the idea of creating a photo wedding announcement.
