Hi I am Kerrie and I am here to talk to you about engagement announcements. The big proposal has happened, you’ve got the ring and now it is time to announce to the rest of the world. What you want to do in a traditional setting is say the bride’s parents name first. So you would say, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, I am really pleased to announce Suzy’s engagement to Peter, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Once that is done, pop it in the paper, and there is your traditional announcement. If you want to have a bit of fun with it then you can do whatever you want, the announcement is yours, the choices are yours. You could put it further on the newspaper. You can do a poem. You can do something funny, you can do a ditty. Whatever you want to do the choice is yours. The most important thing to do is to find something that you both love. Enjoy your announcement.
