How do you write an engagement announcement?

Engagement Announcement

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.")
