The Cutest Ways to Announce Your Engagement on Social Media! (*Coz It's Not Official Until It's Shared & Liked)

BY Sakshi | 20 Jan, 2017 | 656 views | 4 min read

That proposal you'd been dreaming of just happened, and now you just can't wait to tell everyone on social media about it! But hold on! Please realise that this is something that has to be done right, otherwise, a. you might end up ticking off some people or b. you might end up looking like a show-off, rubbing it into every single girl's face. How do you not do that you ask? Well, follow our tips and you'll be right on track!

Before we tell you ideas to announce the big news, here are some guidelines to keep in mind!
  • Contact close friends and family personally and give them the news before posting on social media. You don't want anyone to feel bad now, do you?
  • Try to stand out and not be cliche or corny. No 'I'm marrying my best friend' type stuff.
  • Do not overshare details! No one on social media needs to know how many carats that diamond is or how much did it cost.
  • Stick to one announcement per social media platform. Do not overdo it in your excitement!
OK, now that you have these pointers in mind, here are some cool ways (we think) to make that all-important announcement!

A cute video on Instagram

 
Instagram is a great way to break the news, and this mannequin challenge one we spotted is simply brilliant! You could also do a simple and cute Boomerang video one with you jumping with excitement, a quick kiss or showing off your ring!

With a mug and a marker

This is an easy peasy DIY idea! Get a plain white mug, a permanent marker, write something cute like this and post it on social media! You can choose to or not show your face in the background!

Proposal shoot

So a proposal shoot is a cool new wedding photography trend, with a lot of guys hiring photographers to secretly film the whole surprise. But if that wasn't the case for you, then reenact the scene, with either of you going down on the knee at the same spot where it happened!

Share a cute photo of the ring

We love some cute ring photos- here's some inspiration on how to go about it. But the one with the doggie is our fave! Find more ideas here.

The 'I Said Yes' photo

Write it on your hand with the ring or any other creative way- it's a simple and cute way to get the point across!

Say it with sand

A dreamy vacation proposal brought to life! Such a cute idea!

Wordplay with a chalkboard prop

Get a chalkboard or a slate (or two) and write something cute on it- like the future Mrs. X or a simple 'We're Engaged'. You could even hold it forward and kiss or hug in the background.

With Starbucks cups

Get Mr and Mrs or 'Bride-to-be' and 'Groom-to-be' written on Starbucks cups and just post a simple photo!

Spell it out

Spell it out with plastic alphabets or scrabble tiles- or just simply a 'LOVE' with 'O' being the ring. This is a good way for camera-shy couples to announce their engagement!

Just click a selfie!

This is also such a cute way! Just hold up your phone, click a selfie, while showing off your ring! It's so cute and the black and white just adds so much more character to the image!

Simple and straight!

So exciting! DIY it or get it printed, it's another adorable idea!
