Unique Ways to Announce an Engagement
You’ve dated, spent your time learning who you didn’t want to be with, and then it happens. The person that is the center of your life finally gets down on one knee and asks the question that is going to change your world.
Now that you’re engaged, how do you let people know about the good news? How should you announce your engagement on Facebook or other social media platform? Check out these ideas for how to break the news to friends and family in a unique and fun way!
Tell Important People FirstFirst off, your mom should not learn about your engagement through social media. No matter how you plan on telling the public about your engagement, you should always let your closest family and friends know first.
You can either plan a large get together to break the good news, or you can share it in a series of one-on-one conversations. No matter which way you plan on sharing the news with the people that mean the most to you, let them know around the same time so that no one feels left out.
Schedule Your TimeWhen planning your post on social media, make sure that you have the time to manage all of the comments and messages that will come your way. You don’t want to be overwhelmed with comments and wedding questions.
Traditional PicturesWhen it comes to announcement photos, two typical styles are used most: the “ring” picture and the couple pose. First and foremost, make sure to use a picture of both of you in your announcement because people want to see the happy couple! You should definitely show off that sparkler too, whether it’s visible in your couple pose or you include a second picture of just the ring. Just keep in mind that the ring picture should be secondary to seeing both of you happy together.
Think about the outfits that you’re wearing as well as the location you’re taking the picture. One of the best places to take your engagement picture is outside in nature. Nature shots can give you clear and clean backdrops without being distracting.
When setting up a pose for your picture, remember that you don’t have to pose like it’s high school prom. You’re allowed to hug, snuggle, and kiss in your picture. Just make sure the kiss is nice and cute-no one wants to see you making out!
Unique Ways to AnnounceIt’s always nice to have the typical traditional announcement, but if that’s not you, change your announcement to match who you are as a couple. Here are a few things that will make your announcement one of a kind.
What Not To DoYour announcement should be clear, clean, and easy to understand. There are some things that you should avoid doing as part of your announcement.
Don’t Forget the RingNo matter which unique way you announce your engagement, don’t forget your ring! Finding the perfect ring that your fiance is going to wear for the rest of your marriage is more important than the social media post you make.
