Wording of Wedding Announcements – The Basics
You can make the message on your announcement card personal. This is why you can make it quite casual. However, there are also some basics you have to include. Depending on the tone and formality of your cards, different types of information will need to be included. If your parents are going to announce the event, their names have to be mentioned. Some couples may decide to include the address of their new home. At the same time, there is information that must be included. It is a must to put your names and wedding date on the card.
When you prepare the wording for your invitations, you will usually include the detailed address of your wedding venue. Yet, you do not need to be so detailed for the wording of your announcement card. People who receive the cards are not invited. As a result, you do not really need to include the detailed address of the venue. If your wedding is a destination wedding, you may only need to let your friends know the destination. You do not even need to tell them the name of the resort or chapel in this case.
Some More Tips About Your Announcement Cards
Your friends may still send you gifts although they are not invited to your wedding. They may send you the gifts even before you send them the announcement cards. In this case, you can write some thank you notes on these cards. These means that the announcements will also be thank you cards. You may have to blend the wedding announcement wording with your thank you message. Alternatively, you can also have your separated thank you message handwritten on the cards. If your friends send you the gifts after they receive the cards, you will send them thank you cards as soon as you get the gifts.
