Did you post about your proposal on social media before telling your family?

It's hard to contain that proposal excitement!! Once you're engaged you want to share that news with the world right away! Did you make sure your family members were the first to hear the news before taking to facebook, instagram, or twitter? Or did you post your #justsaidyes moment right away and then start ringing your fam??


Did you break the news first on social?? Time to confess if you're innocent or guilty!

    I posted after we told our family members and some close friends. So around 11 PM the night we got engaged.

    I posted after I called my dad and my sister. They already knew it was coming though, and I'm actually kind of shocked that they could keep the secret!

    We changed our relationship status 3 months after getting engaged. I never posted our just said moment, but did share some engagement pics a few months ago.

    FH had his parents secretly record the proposal. I personally didn't want to post it because it was super dark. It was recorded on the top deck of a cruise ship, at night, in the middle of the ocean and the ship didn't have a lot of light for the camera to pick up. He posted it anyway.

    We actually waited about a month before telling anyone outside of family and friends. His family wasn’t going to be happy so we put it off for some financial reasons

    I called all my family members and close friends before posting online! I felt it was important to call and let those I am close to first.

    No, we waited to tell most people until after I came home to surprise my family in person! Smiley smile (so about a week later)

    As soon as it happened, I called my family/close friends and he called his family to tell them we were officially engaged, but they all knew it was coming months before it officially happened. After that, it was on social media!

    I'm guilty on this one.

    This was the first his family knew about the engagement-through our relationship status event. Prior to that we had told acquaintances on the site where we met through a public announcement.

    My mum still doesn't know I met someone, let alone that we're engaged.

    In saying that, we hadn't spoken for a couple of years until today. I will tell her eventually, just didn't feel like something to drop into the very first call to her in years, somehow.

    Immediate family, no. I did post before telling some aunts and uncles though, which did hurt some feelings.

    Innocent! We called my parents and his parents right away. And then I made engagement announcement cards and sent them out to everyone else the following weekend. Then I posted on Facebook/Instagram.

    I posted after all our close family knew. We made calls and stopped at a couple people’s houses to share the news first.
