- Wedding: March 2015
Ok, I have a seriously dumb question lol. I would like to put our engagement announcement in the paper. The engagement was August 9th, almost a month ago and I have been putting it off because I dont know what to write. I see that typically the parents of either the bride to be or groom to be make the announcement. Unfortuantely my mother is very ill and in the hospital and me and my father have been tending to her alot these past few weeks, so obviously they cant do the announcement. My fiance’s mother isnt took internet sauvy and honestly she has so much going on that I know she wont do it either. Lets just say, the families are really happy but we dont have traditional families. They wont be throwing an engagement party so I am sure thats another thing we may hold ourselves, something very small with close friends and family. But anywho. What in the world do I put in the announcement? We are having a long engagement (again totally non traditional lol) but we have two young kids and are paying for a possible $15,000 wedding ourselves so we obviously need the time.
I see some people wait until they are close to getting married. Then I see some that do it right away that say a 20** wedding is being planned. Any ideas? I dont want to seem tacky putting my own wedding engagement in for one being that it seems out of the normal around here and I really dont know what to say. Help!!! LOL.
