If you plan to put an engagement announcement either in your paper, or send out formal announcements on stationery cards, this is the usual format:
Mr. and Ms. David Smith of Cleveland announce the engagement of their daughter, Carrie Renee, to Chad Jones, son of Joe and Emma Jones of Cincinnati. Ms. Smith, a graduate of Bowling Green State University, is a teacher at Central Elementary in Dayton. Mr. Jones graduated summa cum laude from Ohio University and is a reporter for the Dayton Daily News. They are planning an October wedding. (or if you don't have a date set, substitute "No wedding date has yet been set.")
