So my fiance' and I are discussing wedding announcements for our destination wedding. Do we or don't we? If we do, how far in advance do we send them out? My fiance's parents think we should send out some sort of announcement - to everyone (we are keeping the DW intimate with immediate family only i.e. parents and siblings, and a few of our very very close friends). We plan on having a celebration party upon our return in August 2015 for everyone to attend (wedding is June 2015), which we plan on doing invites for... I've thought about sending out our announcements a couple weeks prior to our departure for the DW noting that we are having an informal party when we get back. My wording on the announcement will serve as the informal celebration invitation as well.
I would love some input! Thanks ladies.
