Our Washington Post Wedding Announcement!

OK, I’ll admit it’s not in the real Washington Post. But it is in the Washington Post Express, the paper’s free daily!

Each morning, I love reading the Express while riding the train to work, so I was really excited to submit our wedding info a few weeks back, hoping they’d run it before the big day. And now, they have!

While any wedding announcement is tons of fun, the Express announcements definitely aren’t your standard fare. They’re written as Q & A bios, where the bride and groom both share perspectives about their relationship and wedding plans.

We had a good time answering the questions, and an even better time reading the interview in the paper last Monday! Check it out, and let me know what you think!

Will you be submitting a wedding announcement to your local paper, or have you done any fun wedding-related interviews during your engagement?


  1. I once submitted our photo to an athletic event highlight couples who met in college (having no idea it would be posted) and they put it on the mega screen at an event Pete was working. I was so utterly embarrassed that I don't think I'll submit our photo EVER AGAIN.

    Yours is cute though! I like how they mixed in fun facts - its more exciting than who your parents are :)

  2. Very cute! I love the "stupidest fight" question the best! We didn't do an announcement, but my mom has hers in my parents' wedding album and I love reading it!

  3. Cute. I also want o have a signature cocktail but haven't quite figured that out yet.

  4. I love it! And now I'm kind of wishing that we had thought to do an announcement in the Baltimore paper.

  5. So cute! We won't be doing an annoucement but I love how unique yours is.

  6. Thats so cool! Not sure if we'll be doing one, but love the format of yours!
