First of all, congratulations you’re engaged! Now, how do you share the news with your friends and family that you’ve said yes? We’re sure you want to shout your engagement from the rooftops, but you may be having some trouble figuring out how, or possibly even who or when, for that matter.
If you want to celebrate your news in a fun way and you don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered! Luckily, we’ve created this guide to help you tell everyone at once with ideas on how you can announce your engagement in a creative way. Follow along as we highlight our favorite ideas to reveal your special announcement.
STARTING WITH THE BASICS
We know it’s not revolutionary, but we do have to mention the most popular way to announce your engagement in the modern age and that is through social media. If your significant other hired a professional photographer or brought your best friend along to take photos—you’re all set! You can share these right on Instagram to make the announcement.
You can always add a creative element with your caption or the angles of your shots. Include a carousel of images from your relationship over the years, share an embarrassing moment that happened in your caption to keep it real—and hilarious, or have fun with perspective and frame the shot of the two of you inside the engagement ring.
Social media can often be one of the best ways to share your news with your entire network of friends and family. Just make sure to tell mom and dad first!
CELEBRATE WITH A PARTY
Now, throwing a party is a surefire way to get all of your loved ones together for your special engagement reveal. It’s the perfect way for you to show off your fabulous ring and gush all about the moment the love of your life got down on one knee. After months of not being able to gather with friends and family, it will make this time even more special to share the news in person with those you love most.
BUY MATCHING T-SHIRTS
This might be one your soon-to-be financé has to plan in advance or you will need to wait a few days to make your announcement, but still, matching t-shirts with an adorable “Just Engaged’ slogan will make your engagement announcement a lot of fun. There’s plenty of websites out there that will create those matching t-shirts for you and then, you can keep the shirts afterward as a memento of your adorable engagement announcement.
USE YOUR FURRY FRIENDS
Nothing’s cuter than announcing your engagement with a little furry friend. Whether it’s a dog, bunny, cat or hamster, everyone will fall even more in love with your news when it’s packaged in the paws of your very best friend. You can put a sign in front of them, take adorable photos and share with all of your loved ones.
IT’S TIME TO MAKE A TIKTOK
Hop on the latest trends on TikTok and see if you’ll go viral! This social media platform is the fastest way to share your news with thousands of people. While you might have to be a little tech-savvy, Tik Tok gives you the opportunity to get creative or re-invent someone’s idea to reflect the happiness of your engagement. You can make videos getting reactions of your closest friends and family, or post a clip from the moment he got down on one knee.
WRITE IT OUT IN CHALK
Invite all of your friends and family over with a decorative announcement written in sidewalk chalk all over the driveway. Whether it’s your closest friends or you’re having a party, this is a perfect way to get your guests excited for the party as soon as they walk up to your home. Plus, you can take a picture of it and post it on social media to let others in on the good news. It’s a day of celebration and who wouldn’t want it to be filled with a little whimsy and giddiness!
BOOK A PROFESSIONAL ENGAGEMENT SHOOT
We assume you’ve already told your closest friends and family, but what about the rest of the world? They deserve to know, too! This is the perfect time to hire a professional photographer and get those lifelong, framed photos taken. Whether you’re taking pictures in nature, at a sentimental spot like the place you first met, or in the comfort of your own home, (which can be very sweet and natural) they’re guaranteed to last a lifetime and capture your endless love. We recommend choosing a theme that feels authentic to you and your partner’s love story.
