Submission of engagement and wedding stories and photos is preferred via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the name of a person who can be contacted if there are questions about the submission and either a daytime phone number or an email address that is checked regularly.
Forms are available by request at the above email for both engagement and wedding stories, which are published according to Tribune guidelines. Parties may contact advertising if a specifically worded announcement is desired.
Engagement and wedding stories are published Saturdays. The deadline is noon Monday for consideration that week. However, publication date is not guaranteed.
Engagements will be published free of charge. A good rule of thumb is to submit engagements at least two months before the wedding date.
Wedding stories will be published free of charge provided they are received by our office no later than three months after the wedding date. Wedding announcements submitted after the three-month deadline will be handled by display advertising at advertising rates.
Photos will be published if quality is satisfactory for reproduction. Professional photos are not required, and color or black and white photos are acceptable.
Print photos will be returned if a self-addressed, stamped envelope is provided, or they may be picked up after publication.
Information and photos also may be mailed to West Central Tribune, P.O. Box 839, Willmar, MN 56201, or brought to our office at 2208 Trott Ave. S.W., Willmar.
