Just for fun!!!
So, three of my friends from high school have gotten engaged in the past 6 months.
Their statuses were : “I’M ENGAGED!!!”, “John proposed!”, and another “I’m engaged!”
I am still waiting.. and was just contemplating this earlier.. I wanted to put something like:
“MyName is going to marry her best friend.”
Something a little sweeter, more subtle, and heartfelt.
Any cute ideas?

I personally am not a fan of broadcasting stuff like this (we never had our relationship status on facebook), but here’s one from a friend that was cute:
Life goal: Find the best guy out there. Make him want to marry me. Check.

I just put ‘[DDW] is the happiest girl in the world’
I didn’t want to go overboard mushy or overly be like “I’m engaged!!! EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!” on facebook though.

Lol my SO and I were talking about this the other day.. People keep posting on my page asking when we are getting engaged so we decided when we get engaged we are going to put each other as single on fb lol.

When one of our groomsmen popped the question, he changed his status to “(Name) liked it, so he put a ring on it.”

My new last name is going to start with an L, and so does my first name, so mine said: “I’m gonna be LL…like cool J”

daydreamwanderer, what is wrong with posting that you are engaged to your friends and family on Facebook? I feel that anytime a person goes on a site like Facebook, Myspace or even Weddingbee and post their status they are looking for some type of attention. Don’t you think so? And yes, when a woman gets engaged she wants everyone to pay attention to her. That is no difference than being on this site and posting that you are engaged. I say that to say this, I posted on Facebook to ALL my family and friends that I am now officially engaged and yes, I want them to pay attention to ME! I personally don’t see anything wrong or cheesy about it.

I think I’d do something ridiculous. “____ got a shiny! Joy!” or “____ prepares to litter everyone’s news page with schmoodles”

@mandiehoward – I actually agree that all posting on Facebook is inherently seeking attention (not like messages to friends, but definitely all status updates and such). I’ve largely stopped using social networking sites for that reason.
However, I think it’s a generalization to say that “when a woman gets engaged she wants a lot of attention.” Some people actually think it’s tasteless to ask for attention for making a personal decision that is really about you and your FI. (me and many of my friends feel this way). I feel like having that joy between me and FI is enough – I don’t need attention. Now obviously I was very excited to share (by phone or in person) with a close group of friends and happy to hear congrats from others when the news spread further…but I personally don’t think asking for attention is a good thing.

My FI and I were not really in a relationship on facebook the entire time we were dating or living together.. we just never got around to it. When we got engaged he was so excited that he switched the status the same day. He was proud to be marrying me and wanted “the world” to know it. A few days later I put something like “weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee i’m engaged 🙂 🙂 :)”
I don’t think it really matters, the people that want to see your status update will see it. When you have a lot of friends on FB most of their updates go unnoticed anyways, because you can only see so many at a time. (and I don’t really think that people will scroll through like 87483473847847 pages to read what everyone updated since the last time they visited FB)

i dont see anything wrong with posting on facebook. I personally dont allow people that I dont know to look at my page, so whenever i post a status, its only for my friends and family.
There are two types of people in this world:
those that care what other people think
and those like me who do what they want despite other people and their opinions.
some things, opinions are needed, but facebook status’s are not one.
OP- do what you want sweetie, dont worry what anyone else thinks, if your excited, post it! 🙂

My SIL just wrote “I have something shiny on my finger” and left it at that. But she wasn’t planning on writing anything until both her brothers wrote their statuses as “Congrats name and name!” because they knew she didn’t want to tell everyone for a few days. Ah, brothers….

_____ and I are engaged!
Seriously, I didn’t get more creative. I saw someone else’s was “He asked, I said yes!”

Sorry but I have no creativity for something like this.
I posted “I said yes!”
Many people what I was referring to.
