I did when we got engaged. Judging by the 100+ people who liked it I don’t think it bothered anyone. I share pics of things more than I do statuses to share what’s going in with my life so it made sense for me to.

We posted a pic of the ring after the engagement announcement, and there was a photo of the rings in our online wedding album. I don’t think it’s bragging at all. When I posted a picture of my “nails” with my wedding band and e-ring ok, that may have been bragging a little bit. 😉

@GretaMae316: So at first I was like um no I am not going to post, because yes I DO think girls who post tons of pics of their ring, it kinda looks like “LOOK AT ME” especially if it’s a big ring…
BUT I didn’t post my ring for a week, after I got engaged and All my friends and family were like let me see the ring, let me see the ring & I ended up having to send a bunch of text pics to them. By the time I did that, I was like gah! I should of just posted it…
Also I think it’s weird when girls post “I’m engaged” but then never post a pic of the ring, I know they could just be, being modest, but it comes off to some as well maybe it’s a tiny ring and she doesn’t want to show it? A lot of times the girls that don’t post pics of their ring, when you see their wedding albums the ring is itty bitty, but size doesn’t matter to all, so why not just Rock it and post it online? To each their own…

I posted one of my fiancé and I, because it’s not about the ring, it’s about the couple.

@GretaMae316: I don’t like pictures of ring. I didn’t post mine. Not because I’m not proud of it or whatever, but to me the engagement is more than a ring. I don’t need the ”proof” you’ve got engaged and I won’t be in awe in front of a ring (same goes for your baby).
Now of course, I don’t consider the Hive to be a social media. It’s a wedding board, it’s the perfect place to show off rings, bouquets, dresses, etc. It’s totally appropriate.But over Facebook ? Not my cup of tea.
If I want to see the ring, say you’re in my family or a close friend of mine, then I’ll ask you when we stand face-to-face. Posting it on Facebook is the equivalent of shoving your hand in my face at work : I didn’t ask for it, and I don’t care about your ring, I care about your engagement and I also care about who you’re going to marry. So tell me about the man, not the ring.

I think it’s fine to post a picture or two right when you get engaged, but after that I agree no one needs daily updates on your ring and how much it sparkles today as opposed to yesterday or what it ate for dinner etc. But I do enjoying seeing the ring initially. I more so thought it was a bit odd when Future Brother-In-Law got engaged that he sent everyone a professionally done music video of the ring he proposed with – basically a 360 degree view of the ring spinning around while music plays.

I think sharing one (or more, really) is fine – I posted a picture right after because we have a lot of out of town family and friends and people kept asking me for pictures. It isn’t my style to post a bunch more than that, but I don’t have anything against it. I guess to me, if it is something you’re excited about then do it! People post 5billion pictures of their newborn sleeping, so the ring isn’t much different IMO.

LOL I’m trying to imagine how I would react to that video!

I think it’s tacky and conveys a focus on the wrong thing, but I know I will never convince the many people who think otherwise. I made the choice that was right for me, not posting, but whatever others want to do is their business.

I think it’s fine to post a couple pictures of the ring when it happens (: I love seeing other people’s engagement rings on Facebook. It’s like Weddingbee but even more fun, because it’s ‘real life’ and I know the people 😉

I think an upclose shot of the ring on Facebook is bragging and tacky. A pic of the couple with the girls hand in the air “omg theres a ring on it?!?” cute, fine. But the shitty iphone ring shot is cringeworthy. Only seen it a few times through the many many FB engagements though.

@GretaMae316: I didn’t post my engagement ring on facebook because I feel like that is all people want to see. If you want to see it that bad-call me up and we can go out for lunch or a drink and celebrate my engagement!

Totally did! I even went as far to send a mass text to all our close family and friends! No shame. Most of my family lives 900 miles away from me, so we keep in touch on Facebook. But after the initial engagement and one solid, clear picture of the ring, I was done.

@GretaMae316: I never did. I just wasn’t really into it, and my fiance is private and felt that it was I don’t know the right word for it, because bragging doesn’t really fit – but he just doesn’t really like when people do that. So I respected him and didn’t. I don’t mind posting it on here though!
