Re: Wedding Announcement errors.. question #general

Neil Kominsky

Anytime you're dealing with an item printed in a newspaper, you have two questions: Who wrote it? and Who edited it?  If the announcement was written by someone other than the immediate family, someone may have mistaken the best man with the same surname for a brother.  If it was edited at the paper, it is possible that someone tried to make it "clearer" by mistakenly specifying the best man with the same surname as a brother.
It is also a question, of course, of how reliable the source was that told you the groom was an only child.
