My fiance and I are wanting to put an announcement in the newspaper, but im not exactly sure about the etiquette for that. What information should be included?

We put one in my hometown and DH's, and both newspapers had specific (and different from one another!) guidlines. If you look on the newspaper's website, you should be able to find instructions, as well as examples. DH's hometown paper wasn't too picky, but mine was very specific about what they wanted, and wouldn't accept much variation, so you should definitely check it out to get an idea of what they'll publish.

Dear Mrs F,

Just look at the other announcements in that paper and write yours in the same style.

Good. Also remember, the newspaper is available to everyone. Friends, family, burglars, perverts.

Aunt, that was my thought exactly.
