we did ours 8 months after I think.  We were so late!  But people still liked to see it in the newspaper!

His mother really wanted this and I kinda forgot about it.  It ended up being 5 months later.  It also cost me $70.  If we had done it within 5 weeks, it would have been free.

Well if I read correctly that your wedding date was in March, personally I think you have lots of time still!

Most of the annoucements I have seen in the paper are at least 4 months to even one year after the wedding.  I think with all the things the couple has to worry about after the wedding (honeymoon, thank you, possibly moving) and by the time they get the pictures from the photographer….a few months is normal!

Hope this helps…… and congratulations on your marriage! Hope it was a wonderful day!

@MsInterpret: that is insane! I’d check around to see what costs other papers offer.

$200 – $250???  WOW, do they think you want to take out an entire page announcement or something?

The only thing I can suggest to save money now, is possibly waiting till your 1 year anniversary and celebrate by putting your picture and anniversary annoucement in.  Damn, I wish it wasn’t so expensive!
