Haha I got engaged in Jan 2007…. and still haven’t formally announced it. We plan to do so after the new year (being that we’re not getting married until Sept 2010), so I think a 6 month lag is fine.

yeah, 6 months is nothing! we’re going on a year of getting engaged and have yet to take our “engagement” photos or announce in the paper! we will this summer. a year and some months after the fact!

i think its more than appropriate for u to announce in the newspaper now …… Hmmmmmm, your grandmother, i would tell her in person and not a Save the Date! Why didn’t you / your parents tell her before if i may ask??? not a huge deal u didn’t, but i think you should just say you are formally announcing it to “everyone” now.

good luck!

You don’t have to tell people exactly when you got engaged! I think it would be nice to call your grandmother and tell her, just try to fudge the timeline a bit. 🙂

We didn’t get engaged by a proposal, so it was something that kind of naturally happened over a few months.  It was a little strange at first because some people knew at first, and some people didn’t, but eventually everyone found out and there were no problems with not everyone knowing at the same moment.^^

I would just call her and tell her that you are engaged or if you are going to see her in person you could tell her then.  Honestly, she probably won’t ask you how it happened or anything (I only had friends asking that).  It is fine to announce your engagement that late.  We had ours in the paper a few months before we were getting married.  They are sort of like engagement/wedding announcements usually anyway!
