Why are there so few wedding announcements and wedding pictures in the Sunday paper?

Q. Why are there so few wedding announcements and wedding pictures in the Sunday paper? There only seems to be one bride every week.

A. The StarNews runs engagement and wedding announcements in the Sunday newspaper. While we publish short announcements for free, many people prefer to have an extended announcement with photo, for which there is a charge. The number of announcements that runs is solely dependent on the number submitted to us.

If you have noticed a decline, it possibly is because people are choosing to share their engagement and wedding information with family and friends via other avenues, such as social media. Like so many traditions, that one is being redefined as well.
