Ask the Editor: Should I send engagement announcements?

I know that you can only send save-the-dates to people who are invited to the wedding, but what about printed engagement announcements? Stacy, Orlando, FL

Traditionally, printed engagement announcements aren’t something you should send.  You should announce your engagement through your local newspapers, and also have friends and family spread the word.  Sending an engagement announcement to someone that you don’t intend on inviting to your wedding could be very confusing to the recipient and lead to hurt feelings.
