Wedding announcements are making a major comeback. What exactly are wedding announcements, you may ask? These printed cards share the news that couple has either eloped or married, and may also provide information about a future celebration. If you’ve recently eloped or hosted a small minimony or micro wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic, and want to let loved ones know, sending out wedding announcements is a great idea. Yes, it’s a bit more formal than simply posting the news on Instagram or Facebook, but wedding announcements also feel more personal and special—especially for your older guests or those who might not be on social media.
Note that many wedding announcement card designs feature a photo (or multiple photos!), so it’s worth waiting until your pro images are in before sending these out.

If you and your partner now share a last name, this is a simple and elegant wedding announcement card that makes a statement.
