Here’s a fun question for the waiting bees: who would you tell first when you get engaged? Personally I would tell my sister first since I have two sets of parents and wouldn’t want only one of them to be the first to know.
Does anyone have cool/funny ideas for ways to tell people? Or stories from those are are engaged/married who told their family/friends in a neat way?

I called my dad first. My mom was teaching, so I didn’t want to interrupt. My dad said I should…so I called her at school and she was like, “um…don’t interrupt me!!!” ha. But then called later to tell me how excited she was. Then I told friends. I called my grandfather and grandmother when we got back from our trip.

My sister and then my parents/his parents, then close friends. Definitely my sister first though!!

My parents. They’re separated at the moment but I’m not sure which one I’d tell first. Then my brothers – they’re twins so, again, not sure which one I’d tell first. Then my grandparents, I sadly only have one set left and my grandpa doesn’t talk on the phone so my grandma would have to pass on the message. (We live overseas so would almost certainly be phonecalls). Then I’d ring around the girls or email them.
SOs parents are divorced, so I guess he’ll have the same quandary.
ETA: my family are pretty good at passing on message but I’d probably give my godfather a separate call.

We told my parents, his parents, my sibling, then his – then friends via text. Then Facebook.
We actually dropped by my parent’s house just after to tell them in person. We thought it would be funny, because we never just drop by – so we sat around in the kitchen for like half an hour making small talk and I could tell the entire time they were thinking, “What the heck are these two doing here?”

My mom, his mom, my dad and stepmom, his grandparents (if his mother doesn’t get to them first), then our BFFs, then Facebook and my siblings. All of his siblings still live at his mom’s so they will be notified when we tell her, I’m sure.

We told my parents over the phone first. Then, since we live 5 minutes from his parents, we drove over there to tell them about 20 minutes after it happened. Then we told very close friends that night, everyone else the next day. 🙂 Then facebook.

i thought i had it all set who I was going to call first but it changed because my dad was away fishing and hi parents were at a hockey game and we wanted to tell them in person
I was so excited that I didnt get creative but I have a girlfriend that I get my nails done with sometimes so I called her and asked her when shes free next to get our nails done because i need a manicure. she caught on quick and started screaming!
It was funy thoguh, we had a list all planned and in what order then we were so happy we forgot it all

i’d call my mom as soon as i was done crying and kissing him!! then my sister, then my dad, then i’d have to make the rounds calling my whole super close family. probably call friends or text them to call me. once i notified all the friends/familty via phone i could FINALLY get it on FB:)

Definitely my mom first. However; I am sure she will already know it’s going to happen before I know. Haha. And then I’d call his mom and grandma. But I’ll probably be a mess because I’m sure I’ll cry. Anyone have a favorite waterpoof mascara? 🙂

@RunningNewbie: Actually, yes! Maybelline Full n’ Soft Mascara. I actually wear it every day, just in case. How sad is that. Anyway, my makeup never runs and I have super soft lashes that are really long! I seriously haven’t lost an eyelash in months.
