Why do people over there put that kind of info into wedding announcements?
Over here, it’s just names of the spouses (maiden name if it’s a religious wedding and either side changed the name at the civil weddind ceremony), date and site of the wedding; if applicable and the couple’s hosting an open-house reception with drinks pre-wedding, location and time of that event.
Das ist schade. How very sad. Wedding announcements are a SPORT! It is socioeconomic status; it is pleasure; it is akin to the joining of BoBo royal families.
A not so uncommon sport here is to scan birth announcements for names that bear social stigmata.
Nice article, love this web, thanks!
