Wedding announcements are intended to tell individuals who did not attend or who were not invited to your nuptials that your wedding occurred. In general, they provide the location and date of the ceremony and reception or, if a reception has not yet occurred, the upcoming date and location of the reception. Free printable wedding announcements help you spread the news about your nuptials without breaking your budget.
