NPJ to publish engagement, wedding announcements

The Natchitoches Parish Journal “NPJ” will start publishing paid engagement and wedding announcements for couples who reside in the parish, who have relatives in the parish or who are getting married in the parish. Students who are enrolled at Northwestern State University but who do not live in the parish will also be able to submit. These announcements will be published each Friday morning. 

This move by the Journal allows couples to showcase their announcement. 

“This is a fabulous way for couples to have a traditional engagement and wedding announcement and reap the benefits of the digital age.” said Corey Poole, editor of the NPJ. 

Information for engagement announcements include: 

  • Digital photograph of the couple 

  • The couple’s names 

  • The couple’s hometowns 

  • High school and/or college of the couple 

  • Parents’ names and/or grandparents’ names 

  • Ties to the parish 

  • Wedding time, date, and place 

  • An interesting fact about the couple

“We all love the happy news of an engagement and a wedding, and this is a great outlet for that positive information,” Poole said. “I still have copies of my own engagement announcement and wedding announcement, and my husband and I will celebrate our 16-year anniversary later this year.”
