We called our parents and grandparents, and siblings. We were GOING to call all of the Aunts and Uncles, too, but one of my aunts was at my grandmas when we called her and she posted some silly ‘i heard you had a secret’ thing on my wall, then all of my other aunts were like WTF IS GOING ON, WHAT DID I MISS, etc. etc. etc. so we just gave up and posted it. (I did message a few of them that I thought might’ve been a bit bent out of shape about finding out via FB explaining our reasons for doing it that way, though.) So, in a perfect world we would’ve informed all of our families before half the world via FB but, alas, we don’t live in a perfect world. 😉

I called my mom and he called his parents.  That was all.  We were out of town and if we would have called everyone, our day would have been spent on the phone and not enjoying the city.  Everyone else found out on Facebook (or through our parents).

it makes me kind of sad that you have to guard our FB and its so integratted in our lives we have to worry about people posting on it and spreading news too quickly.  

I deleted my account when i got engaged. When i felt that everyone i needed to tell was informed i opened it again and quietly changed my status. 

I have no wall to write on.

I had a bunch of people over my house at the time, so I didn’t want to rip myself away from the festivities. I sent a mass text with a picture to my closest friends. It was kind of a running joke between us because I had faked them out like that before. So of course they all called me after they received it! Lol, but other than that I either told people face to face or my dad’s big mouth told them.

@snowshoebride:  Went and told my main family (parents,  grandparents,  siblings) in person, then my closest friends. After everyone who deserved to know, knew we put on fb.

@snowshoebride:  We went to visit My parents who told my brother and any other family they talked to that day.

 

And then we went to visit DH’s parents, sister and Brother-In-Law who told the rest of their family over the next few days as most of them don’t have FB.

I called my best friend and sister. I ended up posting a picture of the ring before his family found out and they were all pretty upset that’s how they found out. Oops!

We called our parents. It was 1:00 AM so… we we obviously weren’t going to call all of the contacts. We posted on FB in the morning since my mom was going crazy with the commenting and evryone was confused 😀

Posting on Facebook was the first thing I did, but I immediately texted my closest friends. Fiance called his mom and brother, and then went over to his dad’s house to tell them in person.

We called our parents and his kids. I also texted a few close friends. (Favourite response: “You got engaged? To whom?”) We waited several days to post it on FB.

I called my parents and gma. FH didn’t call anyone despite me telling him he should tell his parents even though they knew it was happening that day. Our best friends were there taking pictures. We put it on facebook within an hour or two. His parents and siblings weren’t happy he didn’t tell them but he figured they knew. Men, lol.

We called my parents, FI’s siblings, and my 4 closest friends (all of whom happen to be my BM’s).  My FI’s parents don’t have Facebook so we waited until the holidays to tell them in person.  I think I posted on FB a few days after we got engaged.
