My fiance recently proposed to me, and of course I said yes. We're both 18 years old, and have decided to wait to have our wedding for a number of reasons (namely I ship off for the Air Force in three weeks) we're going to wait until early 2017 (we want a winter wedding).
I was wondering if we should send out engagement announcements or not? Of course we're going to have to go get our photos taken, and my mother has already volunteered to send out everything if we should. But then again, we don't really have an idea of when we want our wedding to be.We want it in late January, early Febuary of 2017, but haven't realy nailed down a date. I have 1/21/17, 1/28/17, or 2/4/17 all to choose from. So we couldn't put that on our announcements either.
So, do you think it would be appropriate to send out announcements to everybody now? Then again, we don't really want to send these announcements to people, then loose contact with them and they think that they are invited to the wedding when they aren't. I read that you should only send announcements to people that you intend to invite to the wedding. Or should we just let people find out by word of mouth and changing our FB status?
