Whether because loved ones couldn’t join you for your wedding ceremony, because you wanted to avoid the glare of the paparazzi or because you simply couldn't fit all your well-wishers around one table, rest easy—you can still send a little joy from your wedding ceremony. Share the big news with everyone who couldn't join you with our special selection of custom online wedding announcements.
A wedding announcement is typically sent after a wedding has taken place to share the news of the recent nuptials. Unlike a wedding invitation which is sent to guests ahead of the ceremony, a wedding announcement is a way to share the good news with family and friends who weren’t able to attend or didn’t make the final guest list.
If the happy couple had a small wedding, went abroad, or eloped, wedding announcements are an excellent way to share the good news with those who couldn’t attend. If guests were invited to your wedding but were unable to attend, send them a wedding announcement.
A good rule of thumb would be to send your wedding announcement within 30 days following your wedding. Keep in mind that you may be enjoying your honeymoon, so preparing beforehand is key.
Once you've selected your design, use our online design tool to craft the perfect message—whether it's a traditional wedding announcement or a funny wedding announcement with your characteristic wit and verve. Finalize the wording and format the type to just your liking, then send your marriage announcement online or order flat-printed cards with pre-addressed envelopes. Use our online address book to build a custom list of recipients—if you’ve used our products before, their contact information will already be saved. It's perfect for separating your wedding guests from friends and acquaintances who weren't able to make it.
Our library of wedding announcement designs is sure to have the perfect wedding announcement card for your classic, indie, modern, romantic, or rustic ceremony—including cards stamped with gold and silver foil, for a luxe finishing touch that suits any motif. If your wedding took place in a more exotic locale than the neighborhood chapel, photo-ready layouts let you share pictures of your destination wedding with those in less tropical climes.
If you're looking for more assistance or have an as-of-yet unrealized dream for your beautiful wedding announcement, don't hesitate to call in a professional to help capture your special day. Our Personal Design Services team can help you make an elopement announcement or wedding announcement card that matches your romantic vision. Customize an existing wedding announcement design, use your own photographs and artwork, or have us design a custom illustrated motif inspired by your venue or another memory of your wedding. Use your new design on your announcements and on your new wedding stationery to show your gratitude to the absentees and attendees alike.
