Even though this might be a second wedding for bride, groom or both, you’ll still want to share the happy news that you’ve been married. Wedding announcements are sent only to those people not invited to the wedding, but who need to know that the marriage took place. The recipients usually are friends and family who could not be invited to the wedding (due to lack of seating or budgetary concerns). Business associates may be sent a wedding announcement if it’s someone you feel would want to hear your news. The proper response to a wedding announcement is a letter of congratulations. No gifts should be expected or sent. Announcements should be sent the day after the wedding but if this is impossible (or you forgot) they may be mailed as soon as possible up to several months after the wedding took place. Traditional wedding announcements are sent from the parents of the bride, however, in the case of a second wedding the couple may want to announce their own wedding.
