Engagement Announcements - There are so many ways to tell everyone the wonderful news.
There are many different ways that you can announce your engagement. One of these ways is by sending out formal announcements. Sending announcements is a nice touch and for some people they want to do everything they can do when planning a wedding. If formal Announcements are used there are some things to remember.
For instance this is an added expense so if your budget is tight you may decide not to use traditional announcements. Also sending formal announcements pretty much forces you to have a completed wedding invitation list at an early stage. Everyone who will be invited to the wedding should be sent an announcement and if they are not but later invited to the wedding they may feel slighted, wondering why they did not get an announcement in the beginning and if their wedding invitation is an afterthought.
Of course Announcement Cards can be written in any way to get the point
across. However there are formal and informal ways to announce the
engagement on paper. For instance if you are planning on formal
engagement announcements you would include the names of both the bride
and grooms parents in the announcement.

When ordering announcement cards you should keep in mind that you may
also need to use alternative wording if the parents are divorced, in
this case Mr. And Mrs. Joseph Hall would become Mr. Joseph Hall and Ms.
Annabelle Hall. It is also okay to include step parents as long as they
are labeled as such. Finally there is no reason not to mention a
diseased love on such as saying Mrs. Jessica Tolle and the late James Tolle are pleased to announce
Lastly, some other guidelines to follow for Announcement cards are to ensure you choose your wording carefully to show that this is an engagement announcement and not a wedding invitation, and to remember to do this relatively promptly after the proposal is accepted.
