I am wondering if other brides have sent out announcements post DW to guests who couldn't attend/distant relatives and family friends who weren't invited. If so, when did you send them and how did you word it? I don't want it to seem like we are fishing for gifts or anything. We are wanting to send out wedding announcements that include a photo from our professional photographer, but they won't be ready until January and we were married Dec 1. Is that too long? Also should we send them to our guests too, along with their thank you cards maybe? HELP!!
