Hi fellow bees,
although I have been engaged for sometime I am ready to announce it to the world since the wedding is in motion. Do anyone know free ways to announce your wedding besides facebook and wedding websites?

@BrittanyE: That is about all I used! I called close friends/family. Facebook did the rest of my bubble.
I have seen people annoucement engagements in the local papers, but that’s usually when they have all their “their wedding will take place on this date, and they will honeymoon in XYZ.”
PS May 24 is my birthday! I’ll be 38 next year.

I called close family/friends, and stuck it on FB. Then everyone knew!

@BrittanyE: My plan (when it happens) is to personally call or privately email my family members and important friends. Once I know all my closest loved ones know, I’m doing like everyone else and posting it on Facebook. Then of course flashing the ring to anyone at work that will listen.
I hate that FACEBOOK is the way we communicate such big events, but social media is the only way outside of email/phone calls that covers everyone that would want to know.

I texted everyone and called my best friend.

I called my mom and brother, he called his mom. I started texting my friends, he texted his, we are waiting to announce on Facebook, I kind of want to do a cute engagement photo, but he is working out of the city for the next 3 weeks, and I kind of want to sing it from the rooftops.

@BrittanyE: Our friends know from facebook and word of mouth. Both sets of parents are, however, putting announcements in the newspaper as well. They’re a bit old school.

Everyone important made it to the engagement, much to my surprise! We posted on Facebook almost straight away though.
