Announcing the official date

Hello, I have been engaged for a few days over a year and our wedding is in a year and half! We have post lined our engagement photos and have not rescheduled a date to have them taken. I wanted to announce our date with them-but seeing as I’m not sure when they’ll be I don’t want to hold out on letting everyone know. I am a big social media person I have Instagram and Facebook and snap chat. I’m on each almost daily. Only 2 of our close friends who are also included in the bridal party know the date. Does anybody have creative ideas or suggestions on how I could tastefully expose our date?! Without making the typical “hi our date is...” post lol I like to be as clever or creative as I can. Our hashtag is #HappilyEverHarper


Thanks in advance! 😊

    Unless every person on your FB, Insta, and SnapChat is going to be invited to the wedding, I honestly wouldn't make a post. People always wanna be invited to weddings, and if they know the date but don't get a save the date or invitation, they may start asking and/or be upset.

    I agree with this. No need to make it public to those who aren't invited.

    That’s true-I guess I was considering it since I share so much about my life on social media🤷🏽‍♀️ Like I share major events and things that are important to me there. not a bad idea though thank you! 😊

    I don't agree with the "don't make it public post" ... Because social media is just that SOCIAL MEDIA! Who cares about people knowing the date but not being invited? Social media is a platform to really express whatever you want. It's not an invitation to events 🤣

    That’s how I feel!!!💪🏽💪🏽 I Accept all opinions and it’s not a bad view but that’s how I feel too. Most of my social media friends know I’m not inviting them it’s just where I share my life at, you know? I know these people personally (most of them) but they know also that doesn’t mean you all can come!🤷🏽‍♀️😂

    I also agree that I wouldn't share the date on social media because then people you might want be inviting will want an invite. Instead I would send save the dates to those actually invited.

    EXACTLY lol girl post your date. If anyone gets offended that they know your date but isn't invited then 🥴 ... 🤣 that's a stupid reason to be upset with someone.

    Right! I mean it's the same as verbally saying your date. Are you only supposed to talk wedding with people that are invited? NO. Me personally, I love seeing wedding things and relationship things on social media even if I don't even know the people. I wouldn't assume that I'm being invited to a wedding because I seen a social media post. And I also wouldn't be upset

    👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽You literally are taking the thoughts out of my head!! I’m so glad I’m not alone. And maybe I’m wording it improperly by saying “announce”. I just mean I haven’t mentioned the specific date at all cuz I haven’t had our pics done yet-I’m glad you get it lol my fiancée was confused too and was like yeah don’t announce it on fb and I had to explain what I meant. I love to see wedding things too! That’s what made me add this app to my phone other than getting advice for myself too. I wouldn’t expect an invite bc im your social media friend 😂😂if that’s the case all of us should have invites to each other’s weddings 🤷🏽‍♀️😂(I’m sure others will disagree but it’s all perspective and opinion 💪🏽)

    No I get it girl, it's being made more than it really is. Post your date and hashtag whenever you feel the need to, most people will "love" & comment on it being happy for you! When I posted our date people were happy for us. & I also received a lot of "omgggg I can't wait to see the pictures" comments.

    STDs don't have to go out until, at earliest, a year out. Feel free to tell people who will be invited, but don't worry about not having your engagement photos, yet.

    I echo the "keep it off social media", though - people will invite themselves, tell you what to do, and generally cause drama.
