    Mslannister:  My Fiance proposed last Dec. 23rd, and we told our parents right away. We waited til seeing the rest of family on Christmas to tell them in person. We did call any friends that we weren’t going to see in the next few days or so to let them know.

    We got engaged on NYE last year, I waited a few hours and then called my parents and texted me best friend. Then we went to his parents house and let them know in person and we celebrated that same night.

    Mslannister:  My Fiance proposed on Christmas Day last year at my parents house, so they knew right away. We waited to tell his parents in person (3 days… it killed me) before we told other people.

    By the way, reactions in person were not all ‘priceless’ lol…

    I called the people I wanted to know right away, our parents siblings and best friends. Then I announced it on facebook.

    We got engaged on the 10th and I called everyone before putting it on social media because I just can’t keep a secret for long!

    We just got engaged on the 19th and we called our immediate family members right away, and he texted all his friends. I called a friend who I knew would appreciate a call immediately, and everyone else I’ve been telling as I see them or get into text/email conversation with them.
