Wedding Policy

The Pine Belt News welcomes accounts of weddings and engagements involving current and former residents of our readership area, or other persons of interest to our readers. We publish two types of wedding announcements: Standard, which is free of charge, and Custom, which costs $3.85 per column inch. Engagement announcements are published free of charge. All information submitted more than 60 days after the date of the wedding will be subject to Custom wedding fees. Forms for announcing weddings may be requested and submitted:

- By phone at (601) 268-2331
- By email at
- By mail at P.O. Box 1110, Hattiesburg, MS 39403

For the announcement to be printed in the following week’s paper, complete information and all photos must be received no later than the Thursday prior to publication.
