How to send in engagement announcements:

Posted: Jun. 4, 2010 12:16 pm Updated: Dec. 29, 2014 5:35 pm

Information for your engagement announcement may be submitted online for publication in the Quincy Herald Whig by filling out and sending the form below. Engagement announcements are generally published within two weeks and should be submitted at least 14 days prior to the wedding. These announcements are published at no charge.

You may e-mail a JPG photo to Our goal is to publish sharp, clear pictures that showcase primarily the faces of the couple. Photos that focus mainly on the head and shoulders of the couple work best. Photos that must be significantly enlarged, or that feature creative effects, are not well-suited to the technical requirements of newspapers.

If we receive a photo that is of less than optimal quality for printing, we will contact you to see if a better photo is available. Please avoid using home scanners to scan existing photos. We will ensure the return of your original photo. For photos taken with a digital camera, please make certain that the camera is set to the highest resolution possible. Do not attempt to adjust the photo digitally before submitting it.

If you have any questions about the photo you wish to submit please contact Jana Green at (217) 221-3375 or email  

Also, please include a mailing address where we can send you a free copy of our Bridal Planner. This 52-page guide provides valuable information to help you make sure that your special day is special in every way. If you don't want your address published, just let us know, but we would like to be able to send you a copy of our Bridal Planner.
