*Engagements are eligible to run anytime from the Sunday after the engagement until the Sunday before the wedding. However, in case of an error, engagement announcements that run the weekend before the wedding cannot be rerun. Therefore, it is advisable to run announcements at least two weeks in advance. Wedding announcements are eligible to run beginning the Sunday after the wedding. Pictures and forms should be submitted together. Couples have the choice of running either a picture of the engaged couple or just the bride-to-be with their engagement announcement and the same choice, the married couple or just the bride, with their wedding writeup. Couples' pictures must be vertical or be suitable to be cropped to a vertical format. Announcements submitted will be edited to conform to The Advocate's style and policy. Photos will be cropped as needed to conform to The Advocate's announcement size and format. Photos that are dropped off or mailed in will be kept on file for three months after publication. After that, they will be discarded automatically. The Advocate is not responsible for any photos that are lost.
