Response: The engagement announcement has nothing to do with who is paying for the wedding, but rather where the announcement will be made and who the bride and groom prefer to make it. For instance, the brides family might place an engagement announcement in their local newspaper and the grooms parents might place one in their local paper. Alternatively, the couple can announce their own engagement or the brides parents can announce it in both newspapers. If everyone lives in the same community, then either the brides parents or the couple would announce the engagement.
