Wedding and engagement announcements, with or without photos, will be accepted for publication on the FREEMAN's couples page. The page runs Saturday.
Black and white pictures are preferred but color pictures are acceptable. Black and white pictures reproduce better. Photos provided on computer disc formatted for Macintosh are also acceptable but do not reproduce as well. Computer reprints, however, are not accepted.
Pictures included with weddings should be of the bride or bride and groom in wedding attire.
The FREEMAN is not responsible for pictures left with wedding and engagement announcements.
Pictures can be picked up at the FREEMAN office after publication or they will be returned if a self-addressed, stamped  envelope is provided with the announcement. Please allow four weeks for photo to be returned by mail.
Anniversary announcements will also appear in the FREEMAN.
Wedding announcements no older than six months will be published.
Announcement forms are available at the FREEMAN, 801 N. Barstow St., Waukesha.  Self-written announcements are also accepted, but please include a phone number to verify information and insure accuracy.
