Dedicated April 2022

How did you announce?

How did you share your engagement on social media? We’ve been engaged since February but still haven’t officially announced it to anyone other than immediate family. I can’t decide if i want to share our engagement shoot photos or the photos from the proposal (I kind of like the idea of having the proposal as something just between the two of us) but I’d love to hear how everyone shares their happiest news!

    I put an old pic of us and wrote it’s official I’m going to be a (my new last name) with a ring emoji. We hadn’t taken engagement pics yet, didn’t have a romantic proposal with pics, and I didn’t feel right posting a giant pic of my ring. It was still exciting to post though.

    After we told our close family and friends, I took a pic of my ring and posted it on FB and changed my relationship status. We didn't take engagement photos or anything like that, nor do I post much on social media regularly, so this was kind of on brand for me lol.

    After we told those important to us, I casually posted something on Instagram with pictures from our trip to NOLA. But I never did post it on Facebook

    How have you held this in that long haha. Our parents knew. But it was just us when he asked. We had a couple take a picture of us right after the big moment. We enjoyed the moment and talked for an hour before we left the beach! My parents thought I said no because it was dark by the time we came home to show them haha! We told all family and friends all night and than posted 24 hours later with the photo that a person took of us walking by and a picture of my ring.

    After we told our families, I posted a picture of us from the day of the proposal (4th of July, during the day, not of the proposal) with the caption “Forever seems like an awfully wonderful adventure”.

    I didn’t. I’m really private on social media. I have one but doesn’t mean I share anything on it. I don’t like the idea of people seeing into my life without being in it and so I only shared the news with my friends via word of mouth. However if you shared it, I do think it’s cute because it shows how happy you are and want the world to know of your love. If I did share mine I would probably use a cute photo.

    We took a picture right after he proposed of him holding my hand showing my engagement ring and posted it on fb stating he asked and i said yes,, after we enjoyed the initial moment. We also shared our official engagement pictures, although those weren't taken until months later.

    Our friends had filmed the proposal, and waited for us to post a ring pic. We both posted things - DH a status, and me the ring, and then one of our friends posted the video.

    It's all about how you want to do it - you can make it as big a deal... or as little a deal... as you want!

    I just added a pic of a selfie we took that day and of the ring. We got engaged in Feb 2019, announced March 14 when we had an offer accepted on a house. I felt like I was gonna explode if I didnt let out some excitement.

    We told just immediate family first, then the rest of friends and family and posted a picture celebrating with some champagne on Facebook.

    We took a photo of us right after he proposed because we were both grinning and after we told all our family and close friends, we posted it on Facebook with a little paragraph about our love. We couldn’t wait to share the news, so we did it that night after we had gone and seen/facetimed/called everyone we wanted to tell. But you don’t have to share until you’re completely ready!

    I posted the picture that we used on our save the dates that was of us and our daughter holding a sign that said “coming soon: mama and papa say I do” with our wedding date. I posted it after save the dates were already sent out.

    I posted an innocuous picture of us petting the dog (not unusual for my social media feed) with my ring front and center of the picture. Some people noticed it immediately but many just scrolled past, assuming it was just another dog pic! It was a bit more low key than I anticipated, but it worked for the most part.
