I told siblings, parents, and closest friends, then waited a couple days for the word to spread to aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. After that (once I knew everyone had been told) we put it on FB.

We called his mom and dad, and then my mom a few hours after it happened. Waited a day and called my dad. We texted our friends and I called grandparents like a week later. And then a few weeks later we put it on Facebook.

Haha Darling Husband proposed a few minutes before i had a kickboxing class. So the first person I told is a girl that I’m friendly with from workout classes. Nice to test the waters using a non biased party ๐Ÿ™‚

 

edited to add… You should 1000000% tell close friends and immediate family before just throwing a pic on fb. I mean, imagine how you would feel to find out your sister is engaged via fb. It’s rude not to tell them before telling the whole world

Amyyy:   Immediate family first, then close friends.  After that, the news sort of spread on its own!  LOL

Day-of, we told parents, siblings, and my best friend. The next day, we told our grandparents. Then we put it on Facebook. (:

We’re not particularly close to any of our aunts and uncles, but I think calling them can be a nice gesture! I think we also texted and maybe talked to a couple of other friends as well.

We told parents, grandparents, he told his aunts and uncles, and I told my close friends. I don’t think we neccesaariy had to tell all those people, but they really appreciated that we thought of them and didn’t lump them in with all 300 of our FB friends.

We told my parents (they already knew though) DH’s mom, my brother (only sibling between the two of us) aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and close friends. Once all of our VIPs knew we posted to fb. Then Mother-In-Law called Darling Husband in tears and chewed him out because apparently she found out we were engaged via fb….. Even though we just called and told her the day it happened.

Well.  After we chose a date- I started telling people I was getting married in september.  There wasn’t much rhyme or reason to it but only people I know in person and see daily. 

I’m officially not “proposed to” yet (seriously- still waiting) but we are getting there- I think its’ this coming week- we have a day off together. So pretty much everyone is just waiting around for me make an official announcement.

We told our parents and siblings the night of our engagement, my grandmother and the rest of the family the next morning and spread the news individually to our friends! About two weeks after getting engaged, we posted it to fb for the rest of the world to see! ๐Ÿ™‚
