Invitation Wording and Etiquette

Wedding Announcement Wording

Wedding Announcement Wording
A Wedding Announcement card is sent to people who have not attended the nuptial ceremony or wedding reception of a recently married couple. A wedding announcement is becoming more popular these days as so many more couples are opting for weddings abroad or away from home which mean far fewer people actually attend the celebration.

Wedding Announcement Wording
A Wedding Announcement card was traditionally sent when a couple eloped! These days an elopement is an extremely rare event and a Wedding Announcement card is far more likely to be sent following a small and quiet wedding to people who did not attend the event. Other people choose to publish a Wedding  Announcement in a local newspaper to ensure casual acquaintances have been informed of the couple's change of circumstances.
