    Yes

    No

    I wouldn't do it, but don't judge those that do.

    No. It’s not tacky at all. It’s pretty accepted socially that when someone gets engaged that people want to see the ring. I posted mine with no regrets. 🙂

    I think it’s a little braggy to do it, but also opening yourself to your judgy “friends”. I didn’t post a pic of my ring, but I have a friend who posted her sapphire ring as a profile pic. Another girl from our uni was the first to comment – “Are those diamonds at the side? They’re too small to really tell” Ouch!

    Also, I just posted a few official pics from our wedding as we have friends and family across the world who couldn’t make it. I worried that 43 (out for 460) was a lot, but then I saw another girl who posted every pic her photographer took. I only made it halfway through as I got a little bored, but may have missed some of the best ones.

    Be selective bees!!

    @lucyv2003:  I think it’s a bit obnoxious – I just posted that it happened. If people want to see the ring they can see in person or texted photos etc.

    @lucyv2003:  A lot of bees’ avatars is a pic of their hand+e-ring, I don’t think it’s tacky.  Neither is posting it on Facebook.

    I’m mixed on the issue- I really want to show it off and when someone else gets engaged it’s the first thing I want to see! but at the same time don’t want to show off

    I think it’s fine. I didn’t post anything on Facebook until our family knew. We had people commenting asking for pictures of the ring and I was happy and excited to share! So about a week after we posted a picture after we had made the rounds with the family. It wasn’t a picture that said here’s my gorgeous ring, it was just a simple picture that someone snapped and so i posted it.

    I think it’s fine in moderation. I posted a quick snap of mine to post along with my “I’m engaged!” announcement, but that’s it. When someone posts multiple photos, different angles, close-ups, different lighting, etc…I’ll admit, that looks a little tacky and obnoxious to me.

    I posted a photo. I got a lot of positive feedback, and people shocked at how pretty it was. My husband knows me I guess…and I picked it myself haha 😛

    I let my friends post pictures of me looking at it, or pictures of me where you could tell I had a ring on my finger.  I didn’t just post a picture of the ring.  My ring is on the larger side, especially for brides my age, and I find people to be way more judgmental about larger rings.  It was a family heirloom, and I don’t need people guessing how we paid for it.  I sent a head on picture of it by email to my good friends and family, and anyone who asked to see it.  I personally don’t find it in good taste to show it off, but I’m always dissapointed when I can’t see other brides’ rings, haha.  Overall, I think people are way too touchy about this kind of stuff.

    It depends, how long after proposal it is done, how it is done and how this person usually behaves on fb. I haven’t posted my photo, but then again I don’t post that often. I am not saying that it is *meh* to post about different events of one’s life but too much is too much, and then it seems someone has nothing else in their lives going on than only that what is on fb (taking into account the amount of time needed for all those posts and pictures etc). Otherwise, if just engaged bride wants to tell to the whole world about her amazing event- that’s great! People are different (both – in a good and bad meaning).
