At long last, you're engaged—congrats! The first thing you probably want to do (after staring at that brand-new ring if you're wearing one, of course) is tell everyone. Have you thought about your engagement announcement? In today's world, official engagement announcement cards are an underrated way to share your happy news—many couples opt for a simple announcement on social media. But if sharing a cute snapshot on Instagram isn't enough, tangible engagement announcement cards are a wonderful way to let your loved ones know about your big moment.
Consider your aunt who lives several states away, your best friend's parents, or relatives who don't use social media. Extended family and friends may not be in your inner circle, but they're still close enough to want to hear your happy news! In these cases, an engagement announcement card is a great way to share. You can opt for a digital version that can be emailed or sent via text, or a card that you can send in the mail. Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite options to browse when it's time to share the next chapter of your love story by announcing your engagement.
