We were on holiday in Mykonos about to go to a rave to see Armin Van Buuren so I said he ‘got down’ in Mykonos, ha ha!

We haven’t announced it on social media… Our closest friends and family (people we actually see and spend time with) know we’re engaged and in planning mode and that’s all that matters 🙂

I feel a bit odd announcing every moment of my life on social media (especially when majority of “friends” on there are acquaintances or people I went to grammar or high school with)…we’ll change status and pics once we are married.

Darling Husband proposed on a beach. I wrote the date and YES! in the sand and took a photo. I posted it on Facebook without any comment and waited for people to notice! 

it was 4 years ago today and when I got home from work this afternoon Darling Husband was making a celebratory tiramisu 🙂

I don’t want to post it immediately or soon after, since I would like to first tell my parents in person, which will be hard since we are living abroad with my boyfriend. I still have time to think, this post is helpful! Loved the one with the cats hehe.

j.ubiebee:  We were going to keep it quiet on social media until we’d told everyone we wanted to tell (I have a friend who I wanted to tell in person before she saw it on facebook, because she’s been somewhat bitterly “waiting” for years and isn’t taking other people’s engagements well). After that, we would put up a few pictures. We also wanted a few days to enjoy it on our own.

Unfortunately, my mom and sister both posted about it on Facebook before that (with Fiance and me both tagged and everything). So we were outed.

We just changed our relationship statuses on Facebook, and I put a few pictures of how he decorated our apartment on Instagram. Did a standard cute couple picture. No blatant ring shots because that’s not me (and my ring isn’t very blingy).

About a week later, we did put up a few ring pictures because people were asking for cheesy ring shots. We literally took pictures of my ring with every cheese we had in the fridge. We both have terrible senses of humor.

We were on vacation in Greece, so I told my family in a group message along with a picture of the ring, and then my two best friends. I know a lot of people prefer to either call or tell their family in person, but my family is a lot more casual about that sort of thing and we’re also big into talking about things in group messages so it worked for me.

My Fiance didn’t want to post anything on social media because he feels uncomfortable about it. He felt like putting it on Facebook would be basically asking people to congratulate us. I did want to put something simple on Facebook, like changing our relationship status to Engaged or posting a photo of the engagement without actually saying anything except maybe a heart emoji (neither of us are the type to post any sort of soppy or clichéd thing, and actually very rarely post anything on Facebook anyway, although we do follow or friends).

So after we texted some of our closer friends, we compromised by changing our statuses to Engaged, but made it so it wasn’t in anyone’s newsfeed, you could just see it if you actually look for our relationship status under our profiles (this is the same thing we did when we changed our status to in a relationship in the first place). And then the engagement photos, we just posted them as part of our Greek vacation album instead of posting them indiviudally.

We just changed our relationship status so it came up as a life event: “got engaged”. I don’t see the point in making a big fuss about it on social media or coming up with a creative announcement. Majority of people don’t care, single friends might get annoyed, and we really try to not spend much time on Facebook.

I posted this on IG after all family members and close friends were personally informed.

The caption was “It’s official. Alan’s (my FI) fine ass is off the market.”

I also submitted our proposal to howheasked.com! Link here:http://howheasked.com/katy-and-alan/

I must be the most boring person on earth because I don’t have an Instagram account.  I’ve been off Facebook since Jan. 2015 too.  My boyfriend does not have IG nor FB either.  We’re not engaged yet, but when we do, we’ll let people know the old fashioned way, with either a phone call or a text if we don’t see them in person first.

When I updated my relatoinship status on FB I included a screenshot from the video of my Fiance proposing, showing him down on one knee.

It was actually an accident. We told close family and friends with a pic of the ring sent via text.. I hate social media and all the “friends” I have on there are just acquaintances so anyone that didn’t get a text I could care less about knowing.. but we got a puppy like a month after getting engaged and I put a pic of me holding her and captioned it “look what we got!” And people noticed the ring on my finger and didn’t even care we got a pup.. lol. I was like “damn it..”
