    My FI and are having a small wedding in the Dominican Republic just 6 people. We both have been married before. Should I send out Wedding Announcements?

    Thanks

      I think that would be a nice touch since your guest list is so small. We're not doing announcements, but we invited 160 people (only 80 including us are coming) so it's not a surprise or anything,

        Sure! You can use pictures from your wedding for a postcard. I am sure your close friends and family would appreciate it.

          We're doing the same thing-a small private ceremony and sending announcements. FI has been married before so we don't want to put a big emphasis on a traditional wedding process with an expectation of gifts but we want his family to know. And my family will want something more than an email from my mom...

          My question is when to send them? A couple months before? 6 weeks? What have others in a similar situation done?

            I think announcements are a great idea! We are sending announcements that "We are married!" a couple of weeks after we get back and using one of our best wedding pictures to create a postcard. It's a nice way to let people know that you didn't forget about them even though they weren't invited!

              Oh announcements. This has been a fun topic around our house. I personally don't want to send them out because our "small" wedding has turned into inviting 100+ with probably 50-60 attending. Therefore I feel like the people who get annoucements would be offend and it would be a message saying "we want you to know about our wedding, but your not invited." Esp if we do it beforehand. My fiance and his mom would like to send them to distant relatives, friends from college that he feels would hear about the wedding but doesn't care to invite them, etc.
              What to do!?! I think I'm going to clean my hands of it and tell her that if she wants to do the work and pay for it they are more than welcome to send them.
              I think for someone who is doing it small annoucements are a really nice idea and a cute way to send out wedding pictures.

                This is my second wedding.. we invited about 40 people and 17 are coming. We wanted this to be super small and are secretly glad a lot of people aren't coming. That being said, we will send out announcements with our best wedding picture on a postcard or something like that... so everyone will feel included.
