Wedding Announcements - Telling The World About Your Special Day

Sep 1, 2008
Wedding announcements are an important and integral step in the wedding preparation process. Although the announcements are typically sent out after the ceremony, the preparation for these send outs should be done beforehand. Preparations for wedding announcements can take quite some time and should be practiced with sensitivity. Choosing the best announcements and generating a recipient list is the most arduous of all the tasks and a bit of money should be budgeted for this feat. Nonetheless, the wedding announcements should adequately and appropriately reflect the new couple and the wedding in a special and unforgettable manner.

Newlyweds interested in wedding announcements can consult with many custom print shops. In fact, it is advisable to do so in order to get the best deal. Additionally, couples should generate a recipient list when looking into the wedding announcements. Both parties should consult with both parents to generate the best recipient list for the announcements. The price of wedding announcements will vary greatly depending on the recipient list and the wants of the newlywed couple. Wedding announcements can expect to cost approximately $150 for a set of fifty cards. This is a very rough estimate. Some of the print shops can certainly prepare the cards for more and some can prepare the cards for less. It really depends on the desires of the couple and the complexity of the wedding announcements. Newlyweds on a tighter budget may want to look into buying prepackaged cards. These cards are blank and allow enough room for the couple to fill in the information for themselves. These cards tend to cost approximately five to ten dollars for a set of eight cards.

Wedding announcements are typically sent after the ceremony to inform recipients of the couple's new name and address. Couples should discuss what information to divulge in the cards. For example, some may want to include wedding details. However, this should be exercised with sensitivity as some of the recipients may not have been invited to the actual wedding ceremony. Wedding announcements are also a great way to make friends and family feel included, especially when the ceremony is small and only a few people are invited.

Couples who have eloped or have marked the occasion with small ceremonies will find wedding announcements to be particularly appropriate. It is always a sensitive issue when dealing with who to invite, and wedding announcements should adequately reflect this sensitivity. The wedding announcements should reflect the personalities of the new couple and the desire for the recipient to feel included. Newlywed couples can also expect some wedding presents in response to the wedding announcements, but gifts are usually optional.

Wedding announcements are a great way to announce the new union of two people. To avoid the after-wedding stresses, preparations for these integral cards should be made several weeks prior to the actual ceremony. Specific details and information should be provided at the discretion of the newlywed couple and should reflect their personalities and style. With the many custom print shops and prepackaged options, wedding announcements are available to suit any budget, as well as the wants and desires of the newlywed couple.
