NEWSPAPER ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENTS -

Your engagement is one of the most exciting times of your life. Now that you've made it official and called your closest family and friends, you should start thinking about making a formal Newspaper engagement announcement. What better way to celebrate your engagement then to share it with your local community?

Putting your engagement announcement in a newspaper is a traditional method of letting extended friends and loved ones know about your news. Seeing your name and photo in print also gives you and your parents a moment in the spotlight of the community.

Newspaper engagement announcements can be as detailed or as simple as you desire. You might be wondering how to write an engagement announcement. Here are a few tips and some Newspaper announcement examples.

CHOOSE A NEWSPAPER FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT ~

Decide what publications you want to announce your engagement in. Check out the lifestyle or wedding sections of your local papers and see what the sections look like. Some papers will allow more or less detail depending on space, so consider how much you want to say when choosing the paper or papers. Read through the papers for inspiration when you start thinking, how should I word my engagement announcement? Also, get both sets of parents involved. Parents of the bride or groom may want to announce the engagement in their local paper. They may want to handle that announcement separately, but it's always best to check first.

COLLECT NEWSPAPER ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT INFORMATION ~

Each newspaper has slightly different requirements. It's best to call or email the paper of your choosing and find what information you need to supply. Consider some of these questions to ask:

  • Is there a word limit on your engagement announcement?
  • Is there a fee and is it different if you include a photo?
  • What are the photo specification requirements (i.e. color vs. black/white and size)?
  • If you do include a photo, can you get it back and what's the best way to make sure you do?
  • What is the timeline for when the announcement will run? (You and your family won't want to miss it!)

WRITING YOUR ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT ~

Choose your words wisely. Remember that your engagement announcement will be published for all of the public to read, so avoid too many details that you wouldn't want just anyone to know. Typically in a newspaper engagement announcement, there are certain features to consider including:

  • The names of the bride and groom.
  • The towns that they are from.
  • The educational background of the bride and groom.
  • The place of employment for each is also sometimes added.
  • Generally the time of year or month of the wedding is given but not the actual date.

SMILE! IT'S TIME TO PICK A PHOTO ~

Remember the requirements that the newspaper has given you photographs and go from there. You should pick a picture that works for both of you and a pose that is natural. You don't have to use a formal portrait, the best pictures are generally from comfortable setting.
