Welcome to the boards! I think you will be happiest if you tell your close family, such as parents and siblings, but wait to tell everyone else. Part of the fun for me was not mentioning it to people at work and waiting for them to notice my ring. πŸ˜‰ The excitement is so awesome!

Congrats and welcome to the boards! :”]] Personally, I wouldn’t be able to hold in my excitement soI would tell everyone and just simply say why I don’t have my ring. But then again, it’s just as fun to tell everyone and be able to show them the ring!

I just received my formal proposal and ring 2 nights ago–yay!  However, my fiance and I have been engaged for about two months.  We reserved a venue and set a date and I definately told people because i was so excited!  It would have been fun to wait for the ring before telling people, but I don’t regret telling people because, to me, the ring is the symbol of your engagement.  With or without the ring, you are engaged and if you’re bursting at the seams to tell someone, you should go for it!  If, however, you want to wait and show your hand, I’m sure your ring will be here sooner than you know.

We were engaged without a ring too and we were going to wait until we got a ring to tell people and I lasted oh about 36 hours before I started telling people. πŸ™‚ Go for it, I wore my mom’s anniversary band until we got a ring about a week later and I thought it was fun because there was the excitement of telling people and then being able to show off the ring when we got it – it felt like the engagement lasted twice as long. πŸ™‚

We got engaged but didn’t tell anyone till after I got my ring made, which was 6 weeks later.  By the, it felt kinda of anti-clamactic telling everyone because I felt like I had already been engaged forever!  Just my two cents!
