    I called my best friends right away, and two of them posted on Facebook. I wouldn’t have posted on Facebook on my own.

    I texted my best friend a picture of the ring, but she already knew we were getting married so it wasn’t a huge surprise or anything. I sent my dad a text of the ring too but again, he knew it was coming, and I called my mum on the phone just to be nice, ha. I have no idea how he told any of his friends. It took us 6 months to bother putting it up on FB, which is when 99% of other people in our lives found out (other than our families).

    We called Future Mother-In-Law, and went to FFIL/family and my grandparents in person. I texted several people, as well. Everyone else found out via Facebook.

    I called everyone that I am close to.  After we finished those announcements then we finally announced it on facebook.

    First I called my family since we live far away and I couldn’t tell them in person. We told his family in person. Then we called our closest friends (in this case, friends we were considering to have in our wedding party). I sent texts to some other friends who are close to us, but maybe don’t see/talk to that often. Everyone else found out on Facebook.

    I called the closest family and the bridal party, texted other family members and once everyone knew that I was close to and Fiance was close to, I changed status on FB to engaged and the rest of the world found out

    Oh yeah, Fiance told his parents in person, I had to work that night but he went over there for dinner and told them. He says his mom cried.

    I called my family. I called my friends, but those who did not answer I shot a text to. Then I updated my facebook for everyone else. I live 6 hours away from everyone I know. 😛

    we told our parents, siblings, and grandparents all in person (luckily we all live in the same town!). then we either called or texted all of our close friends, and then everyone else found out from facebook or word-of-mouth.

    Family and closest friends – in person (if possible) or phone call

    Next layer of friends – text

    All others – facebook.

    I hate when I find out about friend’s engagments via facebook. Close friends at least. I feel like it’s saying “you are just about as important as this random-person-i-worked-with-5-years-ago”. So impersonal. And 6 months isn’t that long of a time. if you consider people your good friends, and would want them at the wedding, send them a quick text – maybe even a group text with a pic.

    I called all my close family members and told them…although little did I know I would see them an hour after I got purposed to since Fiance set up a engagement party with all my friends and family. And then it leaked onto facebook without me even knowing and when I got on the next day to post I was engaged I already had 100 comments saying congratulations! lolol

    I don’t really text much or facebook much so it was phone calls for me. But my fiance did put it on his facebook.
