Lifestyles
    Lifestyles announcements are FREE, and can include an original photograph or good-quality scan. Submitted items will be published as soon as possible.
    
    The Marietta Times is happy to publish news of weddings and engagements.
    
    Tips for providing information:
    • Include your name and a phone number where you may be reached during the day in case of a question about the spelling of a name or some other fact.
    
    • Wedding announcements must include the date of the wedding. To keep published announcements as current as possible, information is accepted up to eight weeks after the ceremony.
    
    • Black-and-white or color photographs may be used as long as they are of good quality.
    
    The newspaper reproduction of black-and-white photos is usually better than of color ones.
    
    • Information must be received by 5 p.m. Monday to appear in that Saturday’s edition.
    
    • There is no charge for engagement or wedding announcements to appear in the paper.
    
    • More information is available by calling The Times at 740-373-2121.
    
    Anniversaries
    Information about couples celebrating their wedding anniversaries also may be printed in The Times.
    
    • Writeups and photos will be accepted for any couple celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary and for every five years after that up to a couple’s 50th anniversary (20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, 45th, 50th) and for any year after a 50th anniversary.
    
    • Anniversaries are printed in the Saturday edition. The information and photo must be received at The Times office by 5 p.m. Monday of the week it is to run.
    
    • Announcements are edited for grammar and standard newspaper style.
    
    • A name and telephone number of someone to be called in the event there are any questions should be included with the information.
    
    • If you want to submit a photo electronically, it must fit the following criteria: Any photo submitted to us for publication must be a minimum of 200 dpi. The photo be sent to us as a JPEG file (with the extension .jpg or .jpeg) We cannot accept a Web quality low-resolution (72 dpi) photo.
