First, we recommend taking a minute to soak it all in – enjoy the moment with your significant other. When you are ready to share your news, we included 6 simple ways to announce your engagement below.
Sometimes people go all out for their engagement, hiring a photographer or videographer, to secretly capture the moment. While others choose a quiet scene and pop the question in private. However your engagement played out, it’s news you will want to share, and here are some ways to do that:
6 Simple Ways to Announce Your Engagement
1.) Call People
Many times, engagements are done when you are traveling somewhere far from home. If you can’t wait until you get home to announce your news, call people directly. Be prepared to tell them how it happened, where, and when – these are details people will want to hear the most!
2.) Tell People in Person
If your engagement happened locally, wait to share the news in person. Telling your engagement story face to face will help show people your excitement about the experience. It will also give you an opportunity to show off your ring too!
3.) Share on Social Media
Want to show off your ring to the world? Share a photo of your ring and a few photos of you and your new fiancé . This is a fun option to share the news with family and friends who live far away. Be prepared for all of the likes and comments- your post could go viral!
4.) Send Engagement Party Invites
If you want to celebrate and announce your engagement in style, host an engagement party. Send out invitations and share your story with your guests. Don’t forget the champagne!
5.) Publish in the Paper
Want to do this the old fashioned way? Get your engagement published in the newspaper! Send in your engagement photo and your proposal story and you will have a keepsake for life!
6.) Share Your Video
If a photographer or videographer captured your special moment, share your engagement video with friends and family! This will allow the people close to you feel like they were there to celebrate that moment with you!
