Newspaper and Online Wedding Announcements

Bride's last name - Groom's last name
Wedding Date

Bride's full name of city, state and groom's full name of city, state will be married on wedding date in city, state. The bride is daughter to bride's father and bride's mother. The groom is son to groom's father and groom's mother.

Okay, now if I have totally confused you that was a simple guideline for putting together a text that could be used in a newspaper announcement. The following are some examples so that you will have a few samples to work from.

McAllister - Reeves
May 10, 2014

Kristen Joy McAllister of Gloucester, Massachusetts and Stephen Patrick Reeves, Jr. of Weston, Massachusetts will be married on May 10, 2014 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The bride is daughter to Earl and Susan McAllister. The groom is son to Stephen, Sr. and Margaret Reeves.

That is about as simple as an announcement might get. Now let's look at some more detailed options.

This is an example of where the groom's parents are not married.

Taylor - Anderson
January 25, 2015

Scarlett Audrey Taylor of Victorville, California and Brian Caleb Anderson of San Diego, California will be married on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at the  Montecito

His father, the late Reverend Clyde Walker, was the founding Pastor of Grace Assemblies of God in Bensalem, PA. The church started with 10 members in 1971 and has grown to over 3,000 as of early 2013.

His mother was a devoted homemaker and successfully home-schooled five children. She currently spends her time involved in various church ministries and also volunteers her time at the thrift store at the Bryn Mawr Hospital.

They plan to marry in May 2014.

This announcement included the bride's parents and their spouses (the bride's step-parents) and mentioned in honor the deceased father of the groom. It not only
included  details about the engaged couple but also include information about their parents.

Most wedding announcements also include a photo of the happy couple so you might want to get a picture taken as soon as you get a chance so that you can start
sharing your happy news. You can get started now by posting your announcement on this website.
