weddingmaven:  most things on social media aren’t appropriate….

Im not saying I post those things (I never posted my ring) but there are so many people who do. I just find it annoying when they constantly post it or put stupid hashtags like #blessed

lol

I like seeing the ring when my friends get engaged so I’d hope they’d post a FB pic. But just one. When they post front view, side view, top view, underneath view, ring on dog, ring on flower and ring on teapot all at once it’s like ENOUGH ALREADY!

I don’t post pics of my ring on Facebook because I think it can come off as bragging or showing off. I posted one pic on Instagram where I’m holding a cup but even then the ring is blurry. Those who want to see the ring ask me and I send them a picture or they see it in real life. Otherwise I don’t like to seem like I’m showing off. (With the exception of the showing off threads here on WeddingBee ๐Ÿ™‚

FantasticFawn:  When I got engaged, Fiance and I made sure to call all of our close friends and family the next day.  Then we posted a few pictures from our weekend trip, and two of them had my ring from a distance.  I’ve posted two pictures on my instagram, but I only have very close friends that follow me on there — girls that have already seen the ring in person.  That’s why I love WB — I can post my ring all I want, and not feel guilty/braggy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Facebook no, but I did throw one up on Instagram once when I was very recently engaged. More than once, definitely not.

When I got engaged posted one pic the day after, I think.  For sure it was just one pic.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  I would not start an album for my ring or anything, lol, but I think posting a picture to announce it is not braggy, and that most people get it and are excited to see the ring.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

We announced our engagement on Facebook after we had informed family and friends, but I did not put up a photo of my ring. Instead, I put up a photo of the two of us smiling like crazy after it all happened!

I typically don’t roll my eyes too much if someone throws up a single shot of their ring, mostly because it seems to be the norm now. I do think it’s kind of egregious to post multiple photos of it, though! There’s a girl on my FB who literally posts every wedding related detail possible. When she first got engaged, she put up the photo of her ring as her cover photo. That was overkill.

If someone did post they were engaged and didn’t post a picture of the ring I’d be confused. I think it’s perfectly fine to share our biggest life events on facebook, that’s what facebook is for. Getting engaged is a pretty big life event in my book.

I love seeing others, but I won’t post mine (other than one in my engagement shoot Months later).  We are building a house and I’m the same way with that. My ring and house are much larger than the norm in my area and I dont want the judgement from others. Sticking to friends/family who see both in person weeds out most of the people who would not have anything nice to say/think/write/gossip.

I would never post mine, and I try not to judge people who do. I know they just have a different way of showing excitement, and either aren’t trying to show off or are really feeling the need for some validation. Whatever.

crackktheskyy:  i had a FB friend made her ring her cover photo, too! AND her fiance made the ring HIS profile picture, which i found kinda strange…i like the way you did it – i’d much prefer to see the smiling, happy couple than a close up of the ring.  i feel like that’s a little more of what it’s all about, ya know?

I’ve posted my ring a few times. Once on FB and probably 3-4 times on Instagram. My Fiance has posted it on his IG, too. 

Shrugs. 

I was really excited when I first got engaged and I love my ring, though 6 months later, I no longer feel the need to feature it. In the beginning, though, I don’t think it’s any different than people who post photos of their new cars/purses/shoes, which seems to be the socially accepted norm amongst my current group of peers (and literally all of them post their engagement rings frequently/make it their cover photo so I don’t feel tacky or bad about doing it at all).
