@orchidaloha:  A couple of weeks?!  I’d never be able to do it.  Tell your friends this weekend (it’ll come out anyway with a few drinks) but tell them not to post anything!


What are you doing with the ring until then?  Not wearing it? ๐Ÿ™

That’s so exciting!  So glad you can share on here.  When you get the feeling like you want to say something, try to remind yourself how important it is to your fiance and how everyone will find out soon.  I understand how hard it must be… just try to think about how it won’t matter in the long run.  CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Congrats!!! When I got engaged my oldest daughter was at her father’s house for the weekend so I had to keep quiet for like 2 days and that was terrible. We did tell our parents and sisters but didn’t tell anybody else until my daughter knew. 

I don’t understand why you have to tell his sister in person? Can’t you just call her? I understand parents should be told in person but I didn’t think it was a big deal with siblings.

I called my Future Sister-In-Law and was like since we already call each other sisters, we will get to officially call each other sister because you are going to my SIL. He proposed and I said yes! ๐Ÿ™‚

You think you’ve got it bad? lol

I’ve been “unofficially” engaged for like 3 months now, and even though I think everybody knows already because it’s hard for me (and my mom!) to keep things secret. LOL I will finally be officially engaged tomorrow! (Because the ring will finally be here!) And then I will be able to change my Facebook status!!!! LOL

@orchidaloha:  Congratulations! Enjoy being engaged ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s no rush to tell everyone right away.

Fiance and I have been engaged since Easter Sunday.. and Fiance told me we would never be FB official, lol. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m really tempted to jack his phone some day and change the status… but.. hm.

Oh my gosh, I am way to impatient, I couldn’t do it. Like a PP said, if you think it is going to be let slip with your friends, just tell them but ask them not to facebook it etc as your FI’s sis doesn’t know. They will totally understand and then you can celebrate with them!

I have not been able to tell anyone for 2 weeks because my parents are on holiday… I’m telling them on Friday, can’t wait as keeping the secret is So hard!!! My friend called me yesterday and she said “what’s new with you” and I had to say “nothing much” when really I have huge news, I just can’t tell her yet!
