When Numb3rs star Diane Farr first got engaged a couple years ago, she sent out 300 announcements that said Engaged on the outside, with names and a wedding date on the inside. The engagement was soon called off but the well wishes continued to pour in, so Diane decided that she needed to send out a second announcement. Three months later Diane sent out an announcement that looked exactly like the original, but with a completely different message.
The outpouring of support was overwhelming so Diane and her best friend who designed the card decided to launch Other Announcements – cards for breaking awkward, sad, and silly news like calling off a wedding, divorce, coming out of the closet, plastic surgery, sobriety, unemployment and more. They’re a delightfully dark and hilarious read.
Diane is now happily engaged once again, and ironically just finished making her invitations through the very company she created after her first engagement.
