Should we share our engagement in our holiday cards?

There is a significant chance that by this time next month, my boyfriend and I will be announcing our engagement to our families. We send out a holiday card every year, timed to arrive around New Year's. The cover of the card is usually a goofy photo of us (things like American Gothic, or us in a high stakes Big Wheels race). If indeed we decide to go public with our engagement, we've talked about this year's goofy photo somehow indicating that we're planning to get hitched. I think it would be fun! But I'm worried--even if we do announce our engagement, we won't have any plans yet for an actual wedding, and we certainly won't be able to invite everyone on our holiday card list to a wedding when one happens. Would the recipients of our holiday cards be likely to think that they're invited to a wedding, by virtue of having received this card?
