4 Fun Ways To Tell The World You Are Now Happily Engaged
Congratulations, you’re engaged! At long last, the love of your life has popped the big question, and a breathtaking diamond proposal ring now sits on your finger. After the happy tears and excitement have worn off, it’s time to notify your loved ones and break the celebratory news to the world.
Getting engaged is one of life’s greatest milestones, and you’ll want to mark this incredible moment with a unique engagement announcement that best represents the romance and chemistry between you and your partner.
If you require some inspiration to spread your engagement bliss, let’s delve into these fun methods you can adopt to publicise your imminent nuptials!
1. Break the news via snail mail
Though it may seem old-fashioned, there’s nothing as wonderfully intimate as revealing your upcoming marriage to your nearest and dearest via snail mail. Especially in this digital age of group texts and mass emails, your recipients will be more than thrilled to receive a pleasant surprise in the mail.
Plus, dedicating time to send out personalised, handwritten cards to your guests that document your new-found role as a fiancée expresses the importance they hold in your life, making for a much more significant engagement announcement. Your postcard can even double up as a save-the-date invitation informing them of when your special day will be held!
2. Throw an engagement party
Your engagement is one of utmost celebration and joy, so why not commemorate the forthcoming union with your partner by throwing a fun-filled engagement party? Not only is popping the champagne with a bevy of balloons an excellent way to announce the news to your loved ones in person, but they also get to hear more about your sweet proposal story – allowing your guests to glean a beautiful preview of the romance you and your partner share.
Whether it’s a casual backyard bash or a formal get-together at a local restaurant (taking into account COVID-19 safety guidelines), hosting an engagement party provides you and your partner with the brilliant opportunity to meet extended family, as well as for your future wedding guests to meet each other and get acquainted.
3. Share behind-the-scenes on social media
There’s a reason why they say: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” And what better way to speak volumes about the proposal than a stunning photo taken just seconds after you declare “I do”? If you are sharing it on social media, don’t forget to add a fun and witty caption comprising emojis and hashtags like #ISaidYes or #JustEngaged.
Capturing this once-in-a-lifetime experience on camera will be a priceless memory that you’ll forever hold dear. You can even dedicate the post to your better half or choose to convey your heartfelt sentiments as a couple to your friends and family.
4. Rope your furry friends in an engagement photoshoot
Take family portraits up a notch by having a one-of-a-kind photoshoot that involves your beloved furry friend all dressed up in outfits and accessories befitting of a wedding ceremony. Posting adorable images of your pet will undoubtedly draw the attention of your followers scrolling through their social media feed, so why not grant your fur baby the honour of announcing your engagement to the rest of the world?
A few notable ideas include placing your pup front and centre with an eye-catching sign that writes “My humans are getting married” or posing with your shiny engagement ring in a chain around their collar. Moreover, if your puppy will be present during your wedding, you can stay in line with the engagement photoshoot theme and rope them in the actual ceremony by gracing them with the role of a ring bearer.
Gift a ring that reflects your unconditional love
No matter how you decide to broach your engagement announcement plans, with enough creativity and love, it’ll be a memorable one that reflects your style as a couple. On the other hand, if you’re planning to take your relationship to the next level by proposing to your partner, how about surprising her with a brilliant engagement ring?
