Hi Bees- happy Sunday!
This is a question about newspaper announcements. Truthfully, we weren’t planning on doing announcements until fiance’s grandfather asked several times when he could expect to see ours in the local paper.
Since then, each of our mothers have volunteered to pay for the announcement for her paper. My mother will pay for the announcement in our paper, and fiance’s mother will pay for their paper.
So, I’m curious about the wording of the announcement! At the beginning, when it says “So and so would like to announce the engagement of their daughter/son,” is the announcing person the person who is paying for the announcement? Or, is the announcing person the person who is paying for the wedding? In the case of my fiance’s paper, his mother would like to pay for the announcement, but the bulk of our wedding is beid paid for by my family and fiance’s grandfather.
Thank you so much for your tips!!!
