I need some advise guys! I’m not huge on posting on social media, my FH doesn’t use social media. So I’ve yet to post any engagement news... I figured a picture that’s not of us(since he hates pictures)is best,but I don’t want it to seem like the ring is the most important thing.I’m super critical & over analyze things to death. I thought about posting the above pic, either black & white or the original.Just not to sure what to caption it. Would love some feedback.

    I've been engaged for year and a half and haven't announced it on Facebook either. I keep my life pretty private. What I did do recently though was create an event page for the wedding instead of save the dates. The people I want to know now do

    I love it! I personally think the color photo is a bit more eye catching, and shows off the ring better. Say something about how you and your fiancé have decided to take this exciting next step!! Congratulations by the way!

    I didn't announce mine either even though my friends suggested doing it subtly by having a new profile pic that subtly shows the ring. I kind of felt like I didn't need an audience and I never post anyway so it would feel so out of character.
    I actually prefer the none black and white photo for some reason. But both are nice.

    I think I like the color one best as well. That’s why I’m still on the fence. I rarely post, and when I do it’s either a food related pic the latest Stephen King book lol!

    So I announced our engagement on Facebook, after calling all the important people first. 2 months later, I deleted Facebook and havent looked back. If you're not big in social media to begin with, you aren't required to post anything if you dont want to. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that all the important people who are likely to be invited to the wedding already know? If so, you're all set! I found that when you post on social media people come out of the woodwork and immediately want an invite for some reason. Sorry, person I havent talked to in person for over 10 years, you're not invited.

    I posted a similar picture to announce our engagement, with the caption "So very happy to have been asked to hold this hand for the rest of our days Smiley heart "

    I like the color picture as well, much more eye catching. But remember, you don't have to announce your engagement online.

    We got engaged during a trip to California so when I posted it on Facebook I had the caption "Another reason to love California" with our wedding hashtag

    You definitely do not need to post anything at all if you don't really even care about social media. I simply took a picture of my ring on my hand and said "So this just happened" and that was it! Lol I like what Lovecat wrote to announce it!

    Sort of a pet peeve of mine, but I always feel like using the words “announce” comes off as a little pretentious in any context... maybe this is just me, I’m also an over thinker LOL. I see so many people posting “excited to announce.... new job, moving, engagement, etc” and I don’t know why it just rubs me the wrong way!

    Kelsey I totally get what you mean. Like you’re doing an eye roll even before seeing what the “announcement” is.

    Hahaha exactly. I don’t think this is common perception tho. I always think to myself “who are you, the queen” 😂

    Just use the caption I said yes. The ring along with the caption is all you need.
