    We had a semi-public proposal (at a NYE party), so obviously everyone there.

    Then we called/messaged our parents and his sister.


    The next day, we reached out to some other family members, and then posted it on FB.

    My FH’s best friend! We we’re so excited that the person we decided to spill to first was him. I wanted to tell our parents in person so we had to wait on that till we got the hotel room. But his friend is currently in Texas for work so we had to tell him immediately.

    The first person we told was my best friend (and MOH) We told her the day of the engagement, and we slowly told our other friends and families over the next few weeks

    My FH proposed during his basic training graduation in Texas, so my future in-laws, FSIL and boyfriend, and two of our closet friends were there to witness! The first ones I called were my parents back home in NH!

    They proposed in front of a bunch of friends so technically those friends. But we called family first before other friends.
