- We must receive the write-up or information no later than 21 days after the wedding. Friday noon is the deadline for the following week’s issue.
- Be sure your photographer knows you have a deadline to meet. There is no charge for publishing the photo. Photos may be color or black &white.
- A $25 late fee will be charged for publishing wedding stories after the 21-day deadline.
- We cannot make exceptions to deadline policies and reserves the right to edit ALL information.
- Please e-mail [email protected] or call (229)423-9331 for further assistance.
- This form is a guideline. It is not necessary to complete all sections. Please indicate whether you wish to use formal (Mr. & Mrs. John Doe) or informal (John & Jane Doe) style. If you’re not sure how to list divorced or deceased parents or grandparents, we’ll be happy to assist you.
- Descriptions should stick with the facts (the bride wore a strapless gown with panels of alencon lace). We think every bride is beautiful & all weddings are glorious.
- The story should be a factual account of the wedding, reception, rehearsal dinner & out-of-town guests (grouped by cities).
- Keep your sentences simple. Instead of saying, “The bride chose to wear” or “The bride was attired,” the newspaper account will read “The bride wore.” We do not print designer names or labels.
- THERE IS A 1,000 WORD LIMIT FOR WEDDING WRITE-UPS. EXCESS WORDS WILL BE EDITED. The rehearsal dinner & bridesmaids’ brunch are not included in the word count.
