Pretty much the only social media account I had at the time was Facebook. All I did was change my relationship status to engaged and posted a picture or my ring with the caption “I’m engaged!!” and my newsfeed blew up.

I posted a pic of us together under the tree he proposed under. I said “The Karri Forest is such a beautiful place…. To get engaged”. Didn’t post a pic of my ring or anything, I’m not into that.

We both posted the exact same picture on FB of my ring. No words or nothing, just the picture. Everyone was able to figure it out though. We had already told our family and close friends by then. 10599692_10152571459433971_1199024776485316276_n

chrissybee: My Fiance & I had decided to tell all family & friends personally then maybe a month or two later change our relationship status on Facebook. But when we told my parents (they were the first to know) my dad then went on Facebook announcing it lol. It was actually really sweet & meant a lot so I was just surprised. He didn’t tag us tho so we still got to tell some people. A few months later I posted an album of my engagement pictures & changed our status.

I wrote something like “Another reason to love fall… said yes to the love of my life today”

Something like two weeks after we were actually engaged, I changed my relationship status to engaged.  I also posted a picture of my hand with an absolutely hideous costume jewelry “sapphire” that my folks found in a mini storage unit.  No one really noticed, I think.  Or were afraid to insult my ring in case it was the real one!  No one much noticed when I changed my status to “married” either, until I posted a wedding pic.  I kinda wish more people swooned with excitement for me, but it doesn’t really matter.  Just one of those things people get paranoid over on facebook.  I rarely comment on anyone else’s status, so reciprocation isn’t there.  Meh.

Here’s the pic… no offense if someone likes it, it’s really a garbage ring, not even close to nice costume jewelry.

Waited about 3 days and we put together a few pictures in a slide show on introducing.us and posted the link on facebook. It was really cute.

I took a picture of my hand with the ring with my now-husband, then-fiance in the background smiling in front of my parents’ Christmas tree.  I loved that it a.) showed not just my ring by my (relieved!) fiance and b.) showed when/where it took place.  You see sooooo many of the pictures of the left hand and “I’m engaged!”…I really wanted to include my fiance in our post.  I posted a simple “the best Christmas present I received this year was this man asking me to be his wife”.  We called close family/friends immediately to make sure they heard from us directly but I posted it only a few hours later because I wanted to give my family a heads up before we headed to family gatherings.

He has always been private on social media about such things,  I was not going to say anything on Facebook when he proposed, until later that night, when he was getting ready for bed I saw HE updated his status hours ago.  Lol.  So I followed suit.

My sister (who was there during the proposal) put a post on Facebook and tagged me in it immediately after it happened…I didn’t even get a chance to!!! 🙁 Shortly after I made a post and included the proposal photos…everyone already knew but I wanted to officially announce it!!!

He proposed during my birthday dinner with our friends. I know to some, it should be a private event but the friends that we have I love them like family. Some of them I’ve known for over ten years. So basicly, everyone took pictures and posted them right away. I didn’t even have to announce it.

We are from the UK, but living in Aus, and on holiday in Hawaii at the time so timezones we’re crazy! 

We facetimed those closest to us as soon as we could, and then he put up a status saying ‘i asked miss-honeybee3 to Maui me today..’ and then a pic of us in the distance at sunset. Haha everyone loved the pun even though he didnt actually say that during the proposal!

I changed our status and captioned it ‘maui the most beautiful place, which will forever hold the most amazing memories – we’re engaged!’ and added a picture of us and the ring

I waited about 3 days before going to social media so that we were able to tell all of our immediate family members directly over the phone and to send out e-mails to the extended family (and of course I texted my closest friends as soon as I’d told my immediate family). I live on a different continent from everyone so nothing could be done in person.

After all the “most important” individuals had been informed I posted a collage of photos with a little tagline of something like “6.5 years, 21 countries, and 3.75 degrees later — we’re tying the knot!” No pictures of the ring or anything, just photos from throughout our relationship & travels. It was crazy revisiting the earliest ones, we looked like babies!! It was fun seeing the progression of our relationship lined up in photos!
