How to Write a Wedding Announcement? It's Really Very Easy!

Tip to write a wedding announcement
So, the big day has commenced and now it's time to share the news with people who couldn't be there. Wedding announcements are formal by nature and utmost care has to be taken in the choice of words. Sticking to the tradition, you can still share your big news with a funny line that defines you and your partner as a couple and make the announcement look more intimate.
Wedding announcements are not to be confused with wedding invitations. Marriage announcement cards are sent to people who are unable to attend the wedding or are not invited. Sometimes, weddings are intimate affairs and not many guests are expected or invited. A marriage announcement is used to share the news of your wedding with people. This group of people usually involves co-workers and distant relatives.

Wedding etiquette requisitions like mentioning name (full name), wedding date and location are obligatory in these cards. As you must have shifted to a new house after marriage, you can use this opportunity to declare your wedding, as well as to inform people of your address change.
