I understand that it isn't necessary for most people to put an engagement announcement in the newspapers; however, it's fairly common practice in my local paper and will be useful practically for us to have later. My family have offered to place an announcement, but wanted me to figure out what it should say.
I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to help with the wording? Most of the ones I've seen have the two sets of parents announcing and then a vague reference to the upcoming date. ("Jane and John of Town A are delighted to announce the engagement of their daughter, June, to Jim, son of Jill and Jack of Town B. The wedding will be in October 2018")
Both my parents and her parents are divorced and three of the four are re-partnered. Both of my parents live in the town where the paper will run, but her parents live in two different states.
Does anyone have any suggestions for phrasing? It would be much appreciated!
