Have you bought yourself any products announcing your newly engaged status?

Etsy has made it way too easy to go on a “recently engaged” shopping spree! Did you fall victim to your own engagement excitement and buy yourself any bridal-themed loot? Are you innocent or guilty?

(And tell us what you bought!)

    Nope but BB&B gave us mugs for registering with them so that's the only engagement paraphernalia we have

    I bought a mug but it wasn’t to announce it, just because.

    I’ve been tempted, but I’m somewhat of a minimalist so I haven’t caved! My fiancé and I went and got tattoos together instead, lol.

    I am guilty of apparel lol I won a bride hat, but also purchased a hat & 2 shirts. I’ve wanted to buy more, but have been doing well w/ the discipline.

    My best friend from college got me a mug that says something about being engaged, my sister got me a cute set from etsy that includes a mug that says "future mrs gomez", a koozie that says bride to be and my future monogram, and a ring holder with my future monogram, and my fmil got us Disney bride and groom ears with "I'm his minnie" "I'm her Mickey" shirts, but we're not into the matching stuff so we haven't worn it (aside from pjs) I told him we should go to Disney (we're ap holders) and take one picture in the stuff for his mom, but he said "definitely not", so I tried lol.

    Aww, that's a cute idea, Jenna!! How did it go down? Did someone pick it up real quick or did it take some time for a coworker to realize?

    That's so cool, Miranda!!! Are they matching or do the tattoos represent each other? (Does that make sense? Smiley atonished )

    Lol...I didn't realize how popular a thing this was until I read this post. I have zero engagement/bride/wife related items. I am not into one-time use or novelty items though so that probably explains it.

    Oooh wait my FMIL bought me a Bride to Be sash for my bachelorette party that is currently hanging on my bedroom closet door. Does that count? Smiley winking

    It look them a little while to get, most of them already knew because I posted about getting engaged on my social media. Once they realized though, it was adorable! A few small screams throughout the office that day Smiley smile
