    • Wedding: October 2014

    My Fiance proposed while we were vacationing, and we wanted to wait until we told all of the important people in our lives. Since we knew everyone would want details and be very excited, we only told immediate family for the first few days, (as to not take away from the moment and spending time with one another). When we arrived home from Florida, (about a week later) we updated our status 🙂

    Well we got engaged Christmas Day, I posted a picture of my hand wearing the ring as soon as I got on the computer but I didn’t say I was engaged just yet, I let everybody wonder lol. Then we went to his grandmas that night and told his family then when we got back, we changed our facebook status’ so within 24 hours.

    FB was how I announced our engagement. At the time I didn’t have many family except my sister, and she already knew, so it wasn’t like that’s how my parents found out or anything. But I changed my status within 24 hours.

    SellyJo:  I waited a week or so. Basically until we’d told all the people who we wanted to make sure had heard it through us and not the internet.

    SellyJo:  I still haven’t changed it.

    Well, I did change it  but my relationship status has always been in “Me Only” mode so……

    I didn’t want to publicise my engagement because that leads to those uncomfortable conversations where people start to ask Qs about the wedding and then assume they are invited. Problem when you have so many Friends on FB!

    I intend to make the status public right before the wedding. That way one day I’m engaged, and next day I’m married.

    I do crazy stuff like that 😀
