From a simple ad in your local paper to a customized printed announcement you can send to family and friends, announcements can vary quite a bit. Here, you will find some ideas on how to announce your special event to as few or as many people as you wish, as well as some samples of engagement announcements which you could use or adapt to suit your needs.

Tips To Write Engagement Announcements

Writing an engagement announcement is really pretty simple. You just need to do your homework and make sure you have all of your facts straight. Here are some basic tips for writing your own announcement. With these basic guidelines, you can easily come up with your own samples of engagement announcements.

  • Keep It Short and Simple: Make sure to keep your engagement announcement short and to the point. Simple facts are more effective than rambling on about second cousins and family genealogy.

  • Give Details: Make sure to include all the desired details for the engagement. From the venue to time and date, all these details should be properly highlighted in your engagement announcement, especially if you are using your announcement to relay key information to potential guests.

  • Timing of The Announcement: Keep in mind that engagement announcements are usually made fairly quickly after the initial engagement but months prior to the actual marriage. Time your engagement announcement appropriately.

  • Check Newspaper: If you are planning to place your announcement in either your local paper, or one farther away, it is prudent to check in advance as to what the deadline requirements are for each paper you plan on using. Smaller papers tend to have limited space, so checking in advance can possibly save you the disappointment of not getting your announcement in on the date you were hoping for.

  • Must Haves: Here is a list of 'must haves' in your samples of engagement announcements: couple's full names, their parents' names, wedding date and location, engagement details, venue, time, and date of the upcoming wedding ceremony.

  • Proofread: Make sure to avoid any mistake in spelling for any of the information included with your engagement announcement. Nothing is worse than reading your printed announcement and realizing you spelled the future bride's family name incorrectly! Proofreading will save you potential embarrassment down the road.
