Who receives a personal wedding announcement...
Personal wedding announcements will typically be sent to friends, relatives, and acquaintances who were not invited to the wedding itself. It is customary to send these wedding announcements immediately following the wedding date.

Send the announcements to friend and family-word will spread fast of your wedding and for those not invited , receiving a wedding announcement will go a long way to cover hurt feelings.
