One photo at the time you announce the engagement is fine. The less you post about your engagement/wedding on FB, the better- I’ve seen way too many FB-drama wedding posts on the Bee, unfortunately.

I posted a picture of us a couple minutes after he asked. You could hardly make out the ring and that suited me just fine. Those close enough to me asked for a picture or saw it for themselves in person.
I’m fairly private and don’t wish to be perceived as bragging to others so I prefer to not share certain things.

One picture in the ring box, and one picture on your hand… Perfect and more than enough =D

@BrideToBe14: “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 don’t see why “it’s weird” or why it should make any difference to anyone whether or not people post a picture of their ring when they announce their engagement.
If you were on my friends list and a ring picture snuck into the wedding album (because I would not post it intentionally), you’d be surprised to see that I have nothing to be ashamed of and simply feel that the ring is personal and not something I wish to share.

I am a waiting bee, so don’t currently have my ring. However, when I do get it, I will have no problem sharing a photo of it on Facebook. That being said, I will also be sure that close family members/friends are told of our engagement BEFORE I post anything on Facebook. My friends/family always post photos of their kids, pets, houses, etc. So why shouldn’t I post about something that is exciting to me. Also…I certainly will not post tons and tons of photos of my ring, as this could come off as tacky. Maybe a couple different viewpoints, and that will be it. I personally will probably take hundreds of pics of my ring, but I definitely won’t post those to Facebook! Haha.

I think one picture is fine. Post it, leave it for a few days and then delete it off your timeline. That way people can get their fix, but can’t fixate.

Mine has no online presence, so I never post pics with him online leading to my uncle making constant ‘does he even exist?’ jokes as he’s still not met him.
I’m all for people showing their ring off. It’s a happy moment. People should be happy. I’ve chosen not to, though not because I feel it’s in any way tacky. It’s like everything else in my life – mine. I don’t see any reason to wave it around at work or on camera, and the fact people are pestering me to do so is also playing a part in that. I don’t like being pestered.
Both our mothers have seen it, that’s all that matters.

I don’t know what I’ll do when we get engaged… I guess if people start asking I will post one, maybe on Instagram… but otherwise I’d probably just keep it on the DL.

I did not post a photo of my ring. I try not to post about material things on FB because I don’t want to come off as braggy. I don’t mention or post photos of gifts that I receive, new cars, our house, etc. If anyone wants to see that stuff, they can come over for coffee lol. I think that discretion is much too rare these days!
Not knocking anyone who does it, I can see why you would want to. I am just striving to be the most polite and reserved version of myself 🙂
