We're Engaged cards?!?
Posted: Jul 20, 2006 12:29 PM

I've asked a few of my Married friends if they sent out "We're Engaged" cards. Everyone has said no. Just save the date. I dont have many local friends so i wanted to send something out to my long distance friends. Like a cute card with our picture on it. Has anyone done anything like this?

I didn't do it and I've never seen it done but if you want to do it, then fine.  I made an announcement through email.  I called immediate family but the rest of the family & friends received an email.

I think email is a good idea.

 

Or maybe instead of actual cards, you can send a nice 'bulletin' sort of deal, like a pretty piece of paper with an announcement.

I think that is a cute idea.  Go for it.  I think email is kind of impersonal myself so I am not telling anyone that way.  We just got engaged yesterday though so I haven't thought about it a whole lot yet. I think we are just going to send out save the date cards.

I sent out We're Engaged cards that I ordered off line at Walmart.  We sent them to our close friends, family, and family friends.  We put the date we were engaged and the place, (Rome!!).  They were a big hit and we got a lot of compliments on them.  Everyone seemed to appreciate them, but we also have a long engagement, so we won't be sending out save the dates for a while!

I was thinking the same thing. I just got engaged and we're not getting married for about a year and half-we haven't decided on a date yet, but I would like to send some kind of engagement announcement to out-of-town friends and relatives. All I can find are save the date cards, but I love the idea of sending out a cute engagement card.

I just used Facebook to make the announcement and showed off the proposal ring along with the extra collectible gift he gave me that way. Our parents took care of telling everyone else but most people had found out by then anyway.

I love that idea!! You could get a cute pic with the ring and send it out. Just make sure you only send them to people you are inviting to the wedding!!

I wouldn't, think how much you many be already spending on the wedding. Also that just adds to your list. I'm not even doing the Save the Date cards because they are silly. One invite is good per household because it will have all the information on the invite. Also that way your not filling up your friends and familys mail box with things they are probably going to throw out any way. I think a quick phone call would do just find.

My fiance and I got engaged last week and we're sending out engagement announcements at the end this July. It's totally normal and a good idea, e-mail is impersonal. Go for it, hun! :)

I was actually going to do that when we got engaged, but I just put in on facebook instead. I think it's a good idea if you want to do it!
