The Messenger prints information about engagements, bridal parties, final plans and weddings free of charge. Include a day-time telephone number with all correspondence. Information may be e-mailed to Donna Ryder at dryder@ucmessenger.com. Photos may be e-mailed to that address as well in jpeg format. E-mailed information should be followed up with a phone call to Mrs. Ryder at 885-0744. Both black and white and color photos are acceptable and must be clear. Soft focus photos do not reproduce well. Photographs printed from a computer will not be accepted.
Engagements should be submitted before the first bridal party is held and MUST be submitted no later than two weeks before the wedding date. Final plans should be submitted no later than two weeks before the wedding. There is a six weeks deadline for weddings. Photographers should be notified of this deadline. (A letter is available at The Messenger to give to photographers explaining the deadline.) The lack of a photo will not be acceptable for missing the deadline. This deadline is not negotiable. Those who miss the wedding deadline may have their announcement published at the prevailing advertising rate.
Information may also be mailed to Donna Ryder at The Messenger, P.O. Box 430, Union City TN 38281 or faxed to (731) 885-0782.
