Before Your Wedding Invitations: Announcing the Engagement

In the heady days after you’ve first gotten engaged, when you’re calling everyone you know and fielding questions about potential dates and locations and when the wedding invitations will arrive, describing the story of how he proposed over and over again, you’ll undoubtedly have a lot going on in your mind. You’re probably busy, too, out on congratulatory lunches with close family and friends, starting on the pre-planning, getting a rough idea of what you’re going to want out of the wedding, so you might not have the time to ring up everyone!

You can get all of your friends and family informed with simple engagement announcements. Even your parents and best friends will love receiving these so they have something to stick on the fridge as a reminder and aide to them telling everyone your happy news. Since it’s early yet to start sending out Save the Dates (you have to pick a date first!), not to mention wedding invitations, you’ll enjoy being able to give friends and family the good news no matter how often you see or speak to them.

If the bling’s the thing for you, material girl, celebrate your newest and sparkliest possession with darling Bling Ring Invitations, perfect for inviting close relatives and best friends to the engagement party, or even just getting the word out that there’s been an engagement. If that’s not quite big enough to get the message across about your multiple carat sparkler, shout it from the rooftops with whimsical Big Ring cards, so spectacular that all the info goes within the circle of the ring! Announcements like this let you celebrate without being tied down to the seriousness that you might want to get across in your actual wedding invitations.

We love the English Lime invitations, with the gorgeous and fun combination of lime green and turquoise combining with a clever patterned edge and enough room to let everyone know that you’re a future misses.
