Congratulations on your engagement!
Don't miss out on this opportunity to celebrate! Many brides skip the engagement announcement, thinking that changing their status on Facebook covers this step. But what about Family and Friends who aren't on Facebook? Are you planning on throwing an engagement party? Your engagement announcement can be your invitation.
Oftentimes, engagements last six to twelve months. You won't be sending your Save-the-Dates out until after you have booked your venue and confirmed the actual wedding date.
Engagement announcements are a great way to begin your wedding celebration! Sometimes Brides miss this opportunity because they are not sure how many guests they will be able to afford to invite to the actual wedding. The guest list can't be finalized until so many other details are confirmed. But don't fret - sending someone an engagement announcement doesn't commit you to inviting them to the wedding. But, it is a great time to collect all of those mailing addresses that you will need when it's time to send out your Save-the-Dates and your wedding invitations.
