No we are not talking about Kate and William, we’re talking about you! While you may not be official royalty, it is important to be treated that way for your wedding. A great way to do that is with an engagement announcement. Here are some tips on creating this special proclamation:
- Check policies for publication: some papers limit photographs and announcements to strictly weddings. Many papers have a form you must fill out as well. Check your local papers websites for online submissions as well.
- Include full names of you and and your fiance, hometowns, parent’s names, and other general information. If you are submitting this announcement to a local paper, make sure to tie in a connection with it.
- Generally the parents of the bride make the announcement. If the parents are divorced or passed away, you should mention them as well.
