I didn’t tell anyone bc it’s none of their business. My co-worker couldn’t believe I didn’t tell her, but she’s a blabber mouth! No one even knows the time I’m taking off is for my wedding besides two girls.

@jennnin:  I told the two girls at work who I’m closest with, and the one told tons of people (I was totally ok with this! I didn’t mind, and I didn’t want to be walking around telling everyone myself because that felt weird, so this was a good method). She also put it in our company newsletter lol.

I just let people notice. It was kind of slow-moving, but I preferred it that way 🙂 Then after about a month I made a facebook post changing our relationship status, and that let other people who didn’t run into me regularly know.

@TeeBee25:  this I’d exactly what I did. I work in a small office with 9 employees counting myself. I just let people notice. One girl casually said “that’s new” pointing  to my ring and smiling. Then the other girls gushed a little and couldn’t believe I wasn’t announcing it all loud. I’m not like that though. 

Then one of the male bosses said “woah is that a ring I see?” I’m surprised he even noticed but I just smiled and said we’re really excited. The rest of my bosses and my office manager never noticed but I just casually said “well with the wedding coming up…” when I felt like they should know but I didn’t want to make it a thing.

I just let someone notice, which took about 10 minutes, she kind of shouted when she noticed it and then the word spread from there! I definitely did not want to shove it in anyone’s face.

@jennnin:  I thought it was a little weird too at first so I just told a couple of coworkers. Then the news spread like wildfire and people came to me. It was kind of fun.
