Wedding Announcements are free up to 100 words

Most announcements include the full names of the married couple, their ages, their college degrees, occupation and/or special recognitions and their place of residence (city and state). If a name change is taking place, please supply us that information.

Many also include the full name of parents, siblings and grandparents as well as their place of residence, as well as the location of the wedding (name of facility, city, state), who performed the ceremony (specify full name and affiliation of rabbi, cantor or judge), location of the reception, honeymoon and where the couple will live after the ceremony.

You may also consider sharing heart-warming or funny or unusual anecdotes about how and where you met, courting experiences, the proposal or anything interesting or unusual that happened at the ceremony.
