Wedding Announcement

Want to spread the word about an upcoming Western New York wedding? You’ve come to the right place!

The Buffalo News publishes, in print and online, free wedding announcements. These announcements are brief items listing information about the newlyweds, their family and their wedding ceremony. (To submit information on a same-sex wedding, please click here.)

Information should be submitted by the bride, groom or a member of their immediate family. We only accept online submissions, and only through the form that begins below – it should take less than 15 minutes to complete. After you’ve completed the process, the information will be checked by a member of our staff. You must provide complete, accurate information – including contact information. We will thoroughly review and verify each submission. If we receive incomplete information or are unable to verify any part of your submission, we won’t publish the announcement.

Photos: You’ll be given the option to upload a photo (JPG file up to 1MB) of either the bride or the couple. If submitting a photo of the bride alone, she must be shown in her bridal attire. Couple portraits should portray the bride and groom from the waist up, against a plain background, with the couple’s heads close together and level with one another. The person submitting this photo for publication in The Buffalo News attests that he/she has full right, power and authority to have photo published, either by virtue of owning the copyright or by having been granted authority by the copyright holder.

Deadlines: Wedding announcements will be published as space is available if received by The News no later than one month after the wedding date.
