I am having a hard time finding just regular engagement announcements with photos to send out. My fiancee and I are only planning on sending out STD's for the people we are actually inviting to the wedding since its in Cancun and we are trying to keep it small. So we were going to send out regular engagement announcements to all our other friends and family. But I am having a really hard time finding just the announcements that have 2-3 photos on them without it being an engagement party invitation. I am just so frustrated!! Anyone have any thoughts or ideas?


Thanks in advance :)

Maybe a company like shutterfly that let's you design your own postcard or long phot card? They are often used for baby announcements and Christmas cards... But I'm sure you can customize them to announce your engagement.

I've never heard of a couple sending these out though... Normally it's parents who announce their kids engagement... Or like you said, host an engagement party.

This may sound silly but what is the purpose of letting those not invited to the wedding know that you are engaged if you aren't having any kind of celebration you want to invite people to? (Sorry- this may be the custom, I'm just not familiar).

But I'm sure you can design something cute! Even vista print could have something maybe!

well, we still would like our families to know that we are engaged. also, we are going to be able to do a live webcast of the actual ceremony. so we were going to send the announcements to those people.


my moh is also throwing me a bridal shower and we will probably be inviting some of the people who we are not inviting to the wedding. so i feel like they should have some other sort of tangible thing from us.


right now im kind of thinking about not sending out the engagement announcements and just waiting until we are married and sending out wedding announcements.


i dont know, right now im just so confused lol
