Parents are older and likely would have a delayed reaction, too many family and friends to fit on one picture.


Didn't know how many you were having over.

You could do a second set of vows for everyone who wasn't at the wedding and somehow work it in that way. They think they are getting a replay of a special moment they weren't there for, just to find out they are sharing in a new special moment.

We still can't decide how to tell our guest during the party.


Just announce it. Why does it have to be some sort of game? People have kids every day. Lord.

I am not a Democrat, I don't have kids "err day."

Just brainstorming for some funny ideas to make it unique.

I mean, it's a big deal - but this sounds like a house full of acquaintances and family members he never sees.

Personally, I'd tell all my friends and important family straight up and then let all the other people who don't matter know on facebook haha. Hopefully I don't have to make this announcement for another few years at least though.

Congrats on your planned baby though. Sounds like you'll be good parents.

But that's just it. You aren't unique. Congrats on having a kid, but people have kids every day.

As opposed to "unplanned" and the thread would take on an entirely different tone.

Props-this is pretty damned funny.

re: Telling my parents they will be grandparents tomorrow


My wife and I found out the hard way that anything can happen in the first 12 weeks beyond y'all's control. We announced it earlier and then had to explain 100 different times about the miscarriage. Second time we waited. It is my advice to you.. Tell your IMMEDIATE FAMILY now. Wait to tell your friends and other family members after the first trimester. Trust me. If something was to happen, it will kill you and your wife to explain it to people 100 times. Because for some reason, if you tell someone the bad news... Lots of people think it is ok to ask how y'all found out about the miscarriage and did she get a DNC, how did she take it, etc.

Trust me. If I was allowed to tell the entire world, I would have. Just be patient.

you can have my wife's idea.

Take a 2 group pictures.

First one have everyone say cheese per normal protocol.

Second picture have them say " "insert wifes name" is pregnant!" or "its a boy/girl" if you know the gender already, instead of cheese.

Its cool because if you do it right you get everyone's first reactions with the second picture.


That's a pretty good one.
