Just wanted to drop in and say that I’m pretty sure the reason people even HAVE Instagram to is show other people the good things going on in their lives!

(Totally not a bad thing either.  But people who say “omg why is she bragging” because someone posted a photo on Instagram probably don’t get the point of Instagram.)

I actually just read an article that ‘humble’ bragging isn’t as likable as real, straight up bragging. So toss that ring up on social media, make sure to use hashtags like #blessed, #soinlove, and #weddinglyfe. 

In all seriousness.. Do you. If you want to do it, go for it. I personally like seeing a variety of things in my news feed(s), everything in moderation.

I posted a photo of my engagement ring on Facebook and I don’t care if anyone was offended or bothered by it. My FB friends are ALWAYS posting stuff that I don’t care about but I don’t go around talking about them. I just scroll past and keep it moving. No big deal. If you were spamming photos of your ring every single day then yeah, that’s annoying but posting one or two celebratory pictures is nothing to be upset about.

redflower22:  Ok so for me I let my family and closest friends know via in person or called or sent a private message…..I waited a couple of months to tell others just so I can enjoy the ” silence ” of sarcasm, criticism , jokes and rudeness for those who are just who they are.  Then I just posted a happy picture of me and my then fiancé smiling with my hand on his shoulder showing my ring with no words. If they were observant they knew what I was saying! Lol good luck and try not to worry about what others say. Enjoy your moment with your fiancé. Others can wait To know.

meh, do what you want. I have to say that if your friends hate ring posts, there’s not really anything you can do to magically make them happy about yours. either post it and be ok with the fact that some people are secretly giving it the side eye, or don’t post it at all.

Why don’t you just post the picture without the caption and sans hashtags. Let the photo and the rings  speak for themselves. I never bother to read the “#soblessed,#hubby&wifey,#heputaringonit, #checkoutmybling, etc. anyways

If you want to post a picture of the rings, then do it.  Say something sweet like “can’t wait to marry the love of my life.”  Who cares if people roll their eyes or think it’s materialistic?  If they are your true friends, they shouldn’t be judging you.

Really? Do you really care that much about your “friends” opinions?

This is so ridiculous and childish! 

If you want to post a picture of your ring, you post it. And if anyone has anything bad to say, then they can go F themselves. Why do you have to hold off in whatever makes you happy? That’s crap.

redflower22:  I would wait until you have engagement phot’s done. My Father-In-Law asked when we first got engaged for me not to post the ring on FB/IG because it wasn’t insured yet and he didn’t want to risk anyone trying to steal it. so for us it more of a security thing if someone asked for a picture I would send them a DM on FB/IG with a picture

OP— post it. I’d take one pic of you and FI’s symbols of your commitment to one another over yet another Candy Crush game request, gawd awful bathroom selfie with duck lips, or being tagged in a pic where you are mid-blink with a booger in your nose whilst your friend is looking like a runway model.

BusyLABee:  Completely agree. When someone posts about getting engaged on FB, I want to see the damn ring! 

OP, I posted 1 pic of my ring with the pics of the night we got engaged. I don’t think it’s really that bad unless you’re posting a million “manicure” shots where your ring just happens to be in it. That can be saved for the bee 🙂

I say…Post that ring, girl! It’s one picture. When my friends get engaged I am a little sad if they don’t post the ring. I love looking! If it helps this is what I posted on social media after all our family was called and what-not. 

Caption says  “So excited to announce that Richard and I are engaged!! Cant wait to start the best journey in life with my best friend! #engaged #gettinhitched #pearshape”

I don’t think it’s boasting, I was obviously extremely excited to get engaged to my bf of 4.5 years. It’s a big deal share it 🙂

It’s your page,  if they don’t like it they can unfollow you.  If someone starts posting annoying things I unfollow them, all is well again, and life goes on.
