My honey and I got engaged on Saturday while on vacation. We both called our parents and other close family to tell them of the engagement soon after. Everyone is thrilled and can’t wait to see us when we get home this Saturday.
I was planning on waiting till I got home to update my Facebook and stuff cause I know it will go crazy once I do. However, it sounds like the news is already spreading back home cause we are both starting to get emails of congratulations. Plus, some people that we were traveling with have posted pictures from our very impromptu engagement party that quite clearly shows bling.
We would both like to enjoy our post-engagement bubble for the rest of this vacation. After that, it’s fair game and I’ll start doing all the updates. Sound reasonable? How did you announce your engagement?

i completely agree with you! and YES it is definitely resonable. my fiance and i got engaged while we were on a weekend getaway.. we told our parents the day of and enjoyed our 2 day just to ourselves without people bombarding us with questions and congratulations, etc. it was really nice to have that time just to ourselves to enjoy our engagement and appreciate each other (it was like our really exciting secret, as corny as that sounds haha). once we came back home i texted a few of my closer friends and then we did the whole facebook thing.. and from then on it was people contacting us for a while.. so once again- totally agree.. i hope you enjoyed your time to celebrate because soon everyone will be all over you two (if they aren’t already)!

I think its totally reasonable to enjoy the moment with your close loved ones, before the madness begins!
