Ailis83 :  You could try to find an image of the eclipse or the eclipse shaped into a heart and have it say total eclipse of the heart and at the bottom have a pic of you and Fiance with the ring?

Ailis83 :  This is cool…. do a side by side… do soemthign like this pic below and then a pic of your hand with the actual ring and have it say he asked and she said yes. That would be cute.

Ailis83 :  Not to be a negative nelly, but I would say don’t do the “total eclipse of the heart” thing, but that’s just me haha. I think that phrasing is way too cliche, or just groan-worthy ha! I LOVE the idea though since it ties in with your proposal! Maybe just say “our love for each other eclipses all else”? Or maybe even a poem? I found this…  

<div id=”poem-content-wrapper”>
<div id=”poem-content”>
<h1 id=”page-title” class=”page__title title”> </h1>
<div class=”view view-poems view-id-poems view-display-id-poem_author_dob_dod view-dom-id-1fdd2f9ce982bfc4681766c6392acd10″> </div>
<div class=”field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden”>
<div class=”field-items”>
<div class=”field-item even”>

A solar eclipse by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“In that great journey of the stars through space
     About the mighty, all-directing Sun,
     The pallid, faithful Moon, has been the one
Companion of the Earth. Her tender face,
Pale with the swift, keen purpose of that race,
     Which at Time’s natal hour was first begun,
     Shines ever on her lover as they run
And lights his orbit with her silvery smile.

Sometimes such passionate love doth in her rise,
     Down from her beaten path she softly slips,
And with her mantle veils the Sun’s bold eyes,
     Then in the gloaming finds her lover’s lips.
While far and near the men our world call wise
     See only that the Sun is in eclipse.”

 

Idk. Probably too long, but just trying to throw out ideas!

Ailis83 :  This is just my personal style, but I’m more inclined for something genuine and heartfelt than cute and witty if you want to announce your engagement on social media (not that something can’t be both). If you find yourself struggling to find the perfect wording or poem, just remember that your friends and family just want to know how happy you are to marry your love. Congrats!
