Ye Olde Wedding Announcements

Record #:
The Western Carolinian was a weekly newspaper published in Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina, during the years 1820-1842. The newspaper included marriage announcements, each providing photographs and detailed descriptions of the bridal attire, family, cake, honeymoon destination, and other wedding features. Excerpts of wedding announcements are provided in this article, and demonstrate the differences between wedding reporting in newspapers today and those in early 19th century North Carolina.
