You just got engaged, congratulations! This is one of the most exciting moments of you and your partner and is such a major milestone. We get it you want to share the news ASAP!
Everyone’s feed is lacking a #justengaged post, but before you go crazy with all the Instagram stories, Snapchats and albums all over Facebook, take a peek at these six tips for success when you share this special moment with the world.
Soak It All In
Before you even reach your phone, take some time to digest everything that has just happened and spend time with your fiancé! Embrace all your emotions, laugh, cry, hug and celebrate with a little champagne! This is a memory that you’ll cherish forever so you want to be in the moment!
Go Old School
Ready to spread the news? Start off with your nearest and dearest, your family. Your parents, siblings, grandparents, closest relatives and friends are your VIPs so make sure they get all the exclusive details before everyone on your social media does first. Call them or even better, go see them in person and celebrate together.
Make Your Post Short & Sweet
Keep it simple. Remember Fairies, less is more. Make your caption personal but don’t tell the entire story in one post. A line or two about getting married to your best friend is just the thing to pair with your pic and you’ll have plenty of other opportunities for all the ring selfies later!
Keep The Intimate Details Intimate
Let your closest and dearest known if you have a date in mind instead of making it public. And the same goes for the specifics of your right. You may feel comfortable sharing the carat weight with your BFF but that info doesn’t necessarily belong on social media and could make those around you a little uncomfortable, so be careful!
Remember To Be Grateful
Prepare yourselves for an overload of well wishes and messages from everyone around you. Just remember to be gracious and set aside a little bit of time to read through everyone’s thoughtful messages and thank them for their constant love and support throughout your relationship.
Or Keep It To Yourselves
And if you’re not overly obsessed with social media, you’ll appreciate the moment more when you reflect back with your partner. This is your moment and there is no right or wrong way to go about it. Just do you!
