Announcement Letter of Birth or Adoption of a Baby

Having a baby is truly a wonderful gift, whether he/she is of your own blood or not. You as a parent must be prepared for the sleepless nights, but it is all worth it when you see your baby smile. Before the parents become too busy attending to their

baby, it is great to celebrate his/her arrival. Have plans for your baby arrival party and send a baby announcement letter to your relatives and friends.

A baby announcement letter is a simple invitation to celebrate and see the baby for the first time. It is also a great way to say thank you to your friends who supported you especially for the ones who decided for an adoption. You can invite your closest friends and relatives to see your marvelous joy.

Writing a baby announcement letter is not that hard. You must keep the letter straight to the point and simple. State clearly the date and time of the party as well as the location if it is being held on a place other than your home. Include the baby’s name, length and width, date of birth and date of arrival if adopted, or baby picture if there’s any.

You can also put the names of the grandparents, siblings, and biological mother’s name if applicable. You can also put your personal message and baby passages, but don’t overdo it. Better send the letters two weeks before the party date. Never send these if the mother’s still pregnant or you might need to reschedule the party if it is born too early or too soon.

Here is a sample baby announcement letter of adoptive parents:

Class Reunion Announcement Letter

Time flies especially if you think of your days in school. You surely miss your old friends and teachers. If you are a class reunion organizer, then the task of getting funds and contacting your batch mates is daunting. Why not give a class reunion announcement letter to your well known former classmates to help you out.

A class reunion announcement letter is a great formal way to invite your batch mates to your coming reunion party. It is also a great way to collect funds and gather the latest information about other class mates. Planning the event is much easier if there is available help around.

When writing a class reunion announcement letter, you must make it more encouraging and fun. Write the date and location of the party including a timeframe of all the activities that you intend to do. Offer tickets that could also be joined in a raffle to get more funds.

Give rewards to whoever gives the latest information of a lost-contact alumnus. Be sure to send these letters six months to one year in advance to gather more information and allow them to prepare for the big event. Also remember to provide updates throughout the planning period.

Here is a following example of a class reunion announcement letter:

Broken or Postponed Engagement Announcement Letter

Breaking an engagement is a difficult emotional decision. But it is much harder to break the news to your relatives and friends who have received an invitation. Giving broken or postponed engagement letters to the people who must be informed is proper.

Broken engagements or calling the wedding off letter is important to let your friends and relatives know that the expected occasion will not happen as scheduled. Some people must be immediately informed such as the parents of the couple, the church minister or wedding official, the venue for the event to take place, the caterers, the florists, the musicians, the photographers, and the close relatives and friends.

When writing a broken engagement letter, you must make the statement very short and clear. There are no explanations needed about why the engagement or wedding is called off or it might turn into the gossip of the town. Pass the letter along discreetly with the relatives and close friends and let them inform the others.

If a person you know is not invited to the event, then it is not necessary to inform them. In case that the engagement is called off days before the wedding, the family must act fast in order to save face and gather what is left of the wedding expenses. It is also a good way to let others cancel a flight and continue their jobs.

In some cases, the engagement or wedding is called off because a family member has died. In this case, state the reason for proponing the event, and place a new date and location for the even if available. If there is no schedule yet, just state that the engagement party or wedding will take place anytime soon.

Here is a sample of a postponed engagement letter due to a recent death of a family member:

Announcement Letter of an Engagement

Making an announcement through a letter is not as easy as telling it face-to-face. A written document is subject to different interpretations. When you write an announcement, be concise and straightforward in order for your readers to receive the information quickly and understand it clearly. Keep it short and simple. Make sure that you write something inviting and not just for the sake of announcing the occasion.

Utilize the letter for your advantage. If you are writing a personal announcement take the opportunity to ask the receiver how they are doing and to reconnect family relationships. Keep in mind as well that when you make an announcement, it should be complete. It would avoid too many questions addressed to you later.

One of the types of announcement is announcing an engagement through a personal letter. Writing a personal letter announcing your child’s engagement can be easily done. It would be a lot easier to disclose information because your readers are familiar with you as the writer and your child as the subject of the letter.

Below is a sample of a letter announcing an engagement to the entire clan.

Divorce Announcement Letter

Divorce is a painful event for a couple, especially if they tired to keep the relationship working for years. The people who will hurt the most other than the couple are the immediate family. So it is best to write a divorce announcement letter to your family and closest friends.

A divorce announcement letter is an announcement letter that the married couple will no longer be together anymore. Writing a letter is much easier if the couple do not bring up the subject on the phone.

When you write a divorce announcement letter, it is best to keep it plain and easy to understand, without further explanations. Also state the date on where the divorce was granted. If the ex-wife changes her name back to her maiden name, state it to the letter.

If you are planning to file a divorce against your spouse, it is wiser to think about it and tell him first. Maybe your emotions are just high that leads to this decision. But if the two of you work things out, then there is no need for this letter. If you don’t get your relationship working, then it is the best time to take the necessary steps.

Inform your kids and parents in your home to tell them the news first hand. Never tell them one-by-one, or you might be surprised on how the news spread so easily. After that, you can send these to your immediate friends and let them spread the news.

Be discreet when using a social networking site or blog site, a change of status and a small statement will be enough to let anyone know. Telling how you hate your ex-spouse for leaving you can easily been read as hateful by everyone, including your kids. If you don’t want to hurt your kid’s or family’s feelings, just be quiet about it.
