Announcing a wedding that has already occurred is a great way to let friends and family know that you got hitched! It isn't an invitation for a gift, rather just an informative note that lets your loved ones know that you tied the knot and wanted to share!

One great way to announce this type of situation is to send out announcements rather than invitations. This allows you to announce that the wedding occurred rather than invite someone to an impending wedding ceremony.

There are several ways to word your announcements, it all depends on how casual or formal you want to be. If you are more formal, then an announcement could read something like this: Mr. and Mrs. Doe have the honor of announcing the marriage of their daughter, Jane Doe to John Smith, on October 4th, 2005.

If you wish to keep it more casual and announce the wedding yourself, the announcement could be worded such as:
Jane Doe wed John Smith on October 4th, 2005.

Announcements can be sent to anyone who wasn't invited to the wedding ceremony or who couldn't be there. This could range from close friends and family to work colleagues.
