How to write an Engagement Announcement

Wedding engagement announcements are traditionally made by the bride's family and submitted to local newspapers three weeks prior to the date you would like it to appear. Two to three months before the scheduled wedding date is a traditional time frame. The announcement should be addressed to the society editor or society news department. Don't forget to include your name and telephone number in the event that information needs to be clarified.

If the groom lives in another area, the bride's family should send copies of the announcement to the newspapers the groom's family has selected.

If submitting a photograph with the announcement, be sure to include pertinent information on the back, with a felt tip pen, incase the photograph gets separated from the engagement announcement. The photograph of the engaged couple should be black and white. If you have selected a wedding photographer, he/she can take the picture.

Wedding engagement announcement wording

Myron and Esther Shapiro of Glencoe, Illinois announce the engagement of their daughter Rachel Shapiro to David Grossman, son of Benjamin and Judith Grossman of Great Neck, New York. The future bride received a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is a corporate banker with Harris Bank. The future groom received a bachelor's degree in finance from Emery University and is pursuing a master's degree in business administration from Northwestern University. The couple have planned an August 15th wedding in Glencoe. They will reside in Chicago.

The language in the announcement will vary if either the bride or groom's parents are deceased, divorced or remarried.
