I’m not into cutesy pinterest stuff so we pretty much just basically put up a picture of the ring on my hand and some choice emoji’s.

My BFF did make a post about how his job was to protect Darling Husband and he failed and we had a man down, though.

Epicpooka :  We did a picture of our dog holding up a sign saying “My parents are getting married!”

About two weeks later we changed our relationship status with the date included. You might find the cutesy stuff isn’t as popular as it seems. We took a picture of the engagement but I would never share it with people I know!

We did something similar to this, except we wrote “We’re Engaged!” instead of “I said yes!” and we smiled at the camera instead of kissed πŸ™‚ It wasn’t too fancy but people liked it!

What’s funny is that we actually announced it a year ago today (we got engaged Nov 28 2015 and announced it the next day) and my Facebook just did one of those “Look what you posted 1 year ago!” things. Made me smile, it’s fun doing a cute announcement and looking back on it!

I struggled to say the words “we’re engaged”, “he proposed”, you know the normal type things. The words felt really awkward so I ended up inadvertently giving people cryptic messages.

So I texted my Maid/Matron of Honor with “you shotgunned MOH?”. I told my mum by saying “we bought a ring today”. I asked my other bridesmaid by asking her for a favour and then to be bridesmaid. I sent friends a text saying I had a new ring for my left hand. After we’d let our important people know, we just changed the relationship on Facebook.

Why do you need to post a cute announcement? I didn’t post anything about it on facebook.. Over time I told individual people but that’s it. I previously went through something similar.. but not quite. I was engaged over 3 years ago and ended it about 6 months following. I’ve been with my now partner for about 2 years but it just seems weird posting ANOTHER engagement status on facebook since I made a big deal about it three years ago. People find out, obviously, because our pictures together show my engagement ring, and my grandma has even mentioned something on my timeline about her future in-law.

Anyways that’s just my $0.02. If you think your friends will appreciate a big announcement then go for it, but it sounds like all the people that will be excited for you will know before facebook/social media.

I find all those “cute” ways to be quite tacky… If this is your style, go for it. If not, do smth low key and “normal”, like changing status on FB and posting a selfie with a ring. Close-ups of the ring are not a great idea I think. It can look a bit like bragging. 

On your “what will people think”. You have every right to share happy news. I really doubt anyone is gonna judge you or your relationship. Really, people who know about your story love and support you, people who are not close enough don’t actually care!

Good luck and hope you get engaged soon πŸ˜‰

A week after he proposed and I had told all my VIPs via skype, phone, and text, I posted a picture to FB and Instagram taken right after the engagement of he and I with a caption that said “Went to Canada with a boyfriend, came back with a fiancé!” It was short and sweet and the point was clear.
