Response: Hi Kate, Sending an announcement is a thoughtful thing to do and is not rude, nor is it a demand for gifts. Rather, it is simply a communication tool that allows those in your extended circle to know about a life event. It is much better to send an announcement than to meet someone six months later and then tell them you got married. When that happens they may be surprised and even hurt to have learned the news so long after the event.
