Announcing Your Engagement On Social Media – 2 min read

Posted on March 24th, 2017

Firstly, congratulations on your engagement! We bet you are bursting at the seams to share your big news with the world! Take a couple of deep breaths; there are some things we recommend you do first.

Firstly let the moment soak in and spend time with your new fiancé! It’s your big moment so make sure you really enjoy it! When you are ready, we suggest you tell your nearest and dearest first the ‘traditional’ way by phone call or face to face; this way you will be able to see or hear their reaction so you can share your excitement together!

Once you’ve told everyone within your inner circle, how about sharing it with your friends on social media. This is the perfect opportunity to get creative and have a little bit of fun.



How about posting a picture of you and your loved one together whilst subtly showing off your left hand with your new ring! This can look really cute and will make a great profile picture! To ensure you get the best photo possible perhaps get a friend with a good camera or give them your phone to take it – you really don’t want your outstretched ‘selfie’ arm to ruin the pic!




Or there’s the classic, infamous ring selfie… If you’re struggling to think of a nicely worded status, this is the one for you, after all, everyone knows what a ring on that hand means! We think this is a fantastic way to share the news, plus we LOVE to see your gorgeous engagement ring! The location of your proposal would make a beautiful background, it’s bound to be beautiful. Wherever it is your hand will be the main focus of the photo.




This is quite possibly the best photo you can get if you are lucky enough to get caught on camera! It takes a lot of planning from your better half and you really cannot help if it happens or not. Perhaps drop a few hints… you never know what could happen! These photos are especially great at capturing the moment, the emotion and your sheer joy… completely priceless and something to treasure forever! Sharing a picture like this on your social media will make your friends feel as though they shared the moment with you.


Regardless of how you decide to announce your engagement on social media, the news is yours and everyone is going to be so excited for you both! Enjoy the moment and have fun getting creative with sharing the news. And remember there is absolutely no rush to upload a photo right away.
