Getting engaged is an incredibly exciting time for couples so it is only natural that they will want to share their happy news with the people in their lives. There are a number of ways to announce an engagement to suit all couples personal styles, from the more traditional ways to fun new ways. If you don’t have a mountaintop to shout from, never fear, we’ve put together a list of a few ideas to consider when you are ready to share your big news.
Although this doesn’t work for every person you could possibly want to tell about your engagement, it is a nice personal touch for those extra special people in your lives – think parents, siblings and close friends. This also gives you the opportunity to share your proposal story as they’ll all want to know the details!
Pick Up The Phone
For those special people in your lives who may not be close enough for an in person visit, or who you wouldn’t want to find out through the grapevine or social media, pick up the phone and call. This allows you to give a little more time to those people who are close to you, and will be an appreciated gesture by all.
Send a Proposal Video or Photos
A growing proposal trend is to hire a photographer or videographer to capture a surprise proposal from a discreet location. This can result in some beautiful raw emotional moments being captured so you can look back on them throughout your life together. If comfortable sharing this with others, consider sending it to those you choose.
Share on Social Media
Most people have multiple social media accounts these days, so why not use your favourite channel or channels to let your engagement news go viral? This is a great way to share the news to extended family, friends and people who you may not have at the top of your important people list but would still love to hear your happy news. Accompany your announcement with a cute photo of the happy couple, the ring, or proposal site for a romantic added touch.
Signed, Sealed and Delivered
Although some may have already heard the news of your engagement, consider mailing out some invitations and celebrating in style by having an engagement party to toast your future together surrounded by the ones you love and care about most. The excuse for good food and drink is a bonus!
Put it in the Paper
Consider going the old-fashioned route by sending your engagement announcement and a nice photo of you and your significant other to a local paper. Not only is this a cute way to share the word of your happy news, it also gives you a keepsake for your scrapbook or photo album.
