Who's the first person you told about the proposal?

After you said yes, who did you reach out to right away? Did you call up your best friends or family, or post a ring pic right away?

Who did you share the big news with first?

    My FW proposed alone in our living room, but my mom and best friend were watching on our "doggy cam," so they were the first to know.

    We each called our sons and told them personally. They were thrilled for us and have been some of our biggest supporters.

    The first person I told was my dad and then my mom once he handed her the phone. Then I sent out a group text with my parents and siblings on it before we posted the news on Facebook Smiley smile

    I called my dad/ parents first to tell them; but my mom was at work at the time. Then I texted a few of my close friends and family. Then impatiently waited for my mom to call me back before we posted it on Facebook lol

    Since everybody knew it was happening except for me there weren’t many people to call but I think I called my parents first

    My brother, the only person I tell things to before I tell mom. 😍 He is also the first person I asked to be on my "Bridal Brigade"

    I called my mom, who was conveniently with my sister and dad. Then we called his mom, dad, and grandma. And instead of calling everyone else, I created an engagement announcement card and mailed them.

    I had no idea that my fiance had a lot of our friends and family hiding at our house ready to surprise me after our proposal so he had us call his mom first so that she’d keep us on the phone driving home to keep me from looking at “Find Friends” and noticing that my sisters weren’t 3.5 hours away at their homes but actually all at our house. Otherwise they would have been first for me to tell!
