Announcing your engagement is one of the most fun things you get to do after you’ve been proposed to. There are many ways of doing it but here are 3 of the most popular and trendy ways to announce your engagement.
Engagement announcements have been published in newspapers for years – it used to be the thing to do. But the young and hip crowd is turning to YouTube and Vimeo to host their digital engagement announcements. Check out Ashley & Spencer’s engagement announcement here. Clearly they share a love of the movie Frozen 🙂
Surprise Engagement Party
Throwing a surprise engagement party immediately after the proposal is a big trend right now. One of the benefits of having an engagement event like this is that you can bring together both sides of the family and introduce friends and relatives all in one place at the same time prior to the wedding. You also save money in paying for one venue for 2 events. The con is that your partner may feel cheated out of 2 special and important events.
There are a million creative ways of announcing your engagement on social media. From trendy photos with signs saying “I said yes” to pictures of the engagement ring itself, plastering photos on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat is one of the most popular methods of announcing your engagement. Not only is this method free to do – but it can reach everyone in your social network all at once, friends, family and coworkers. If you decide to announce your engagement on social media, be sure that you follow a few rules of etiquette. Make sure that both sets of your parents know ahead of time – and if you have any children, make sure they are told first. It’s only polite to let those that are closest to you know first before the rest of the world is made aware.
