    I couldn’t vote because I posted a photo, but the ring wasn’t in it.. We’re goof balls and I don’t normally like posting emotional/deeply personal stuff on facebook, BUT we have a lot of family and couldn’t call everyone. So we announced it by posting this photo on instagram and facebook with the caption “we’re gettin hitched, #hellaromance”


    (we were on holiday with my family when he proposed and the hotel found out and did the rose petals thing which we clearly thought was hilarious)

    We waited a few weeks so that we could first tell anyone and everyone we cared about in person (family, friends, and extended family). Then we sat together when he visited and crafted the status update together. I also changed my profile picture to one of the two of us that my brother took during the proposal (was super excited that this would be our first couples picture posted publicly).

    I posted a pic of the ring with the Caption “We had an eventful Sunday” 

    Then changed our relationship status to Engaged.

    We will probably just change the relationship status. I don’t have an issue with posting a photo but people wanting to see the ring these days just want to compare I feel like. That is just my experience.

    I let him do the posting. We took a pic together after he proposed and he posted it with “as of today, I get to call her ‘fiancee'”. Then we changed our relationship status. We didn’t say too much about it after that. Same when we got married. Our wedding was small, just our parents and his sister (we’re saving for a house and just didn’t feel like dealing with the financial stress of a huge event). We updated our relationship status to married when we knew people had received the announcements we mailed, then sat back and watched the hell break loose because people were pissed at our small wedding 🤷

    He posted a live video of the purposal on Facebook. Pretty much changed my status after that.

    I posted a little story about it, not giving the whole story away with photos. I had previously been single for four years so this was a big hit with people I know.

    We also do not have our relationship status on facebook.

    We never even posted we were engaged. We got married in December and around June we just changed our status to “married to”

    cassiegirl :  I did not make an announcement either. Our families and close friends know we are engaged. I don’t need a FB post.

    Neither of us are really big on posting personal details on social media, so we didn’t make it “facebook official” until several months after our actual engagement. My Fiance posted a photo of me wearing the ring and added our engagement as a “life event”. But since all our family and close friends already knew, it was kind of old news by that point. It was funny because some of my FB-only/less close friends were confused when they saw a date of four months previously, thinking they were really late to the party 🙂

    We changed our status to engaged after we told family and close friends. No pictures of the ring or the proposal because we tend to be somewhat private. After the wedding we did the same thing, changes it to married and posted our wedding album a month later.
