Your Inner Circle: Tell Them In Person

Your favorite people should be the first to know, and this kind of news is always best in person. Set a date, gather your nearest and dearest, and pop the champagne because you’re getting married!

Your long-distance besties: Facetime or skype

Let's be honest, you probably have some close friends and family that don't live close by. For these extra-special people for aren't close enough for an in-person announcement, give them an exciting video call so that you can share in the joy and show off that bling!

The Whole Neighborhood: Throw an Engagement Party

What better way to announce and celebrate your engagement with your group of friends and family than throwing an engagement party!? This can be casual or posh, whatever fits your style. We love having a casual gathering at your favorite watering hole over apps and cocktails or an intimate dinner party.

Everyone else: Share via social media

Once you've told your closest groups of friends, you're in the clear to share with the world wide web! Follow your instincts and share on social media wherever you spend your most time. Don’t forget to attach photos and let your friends share in the excitement as they ooh and ahh over this special moment! Also, if you’re really on your a-game, add your wedding website to your message and share your “How We Met” story, the engagement – all the fabulous details! 


However you decide to make the announcement, be sure to share your joy and excitement and be ready for loads of questions. It's perfectly acceptable to say: "I don't know yet, we're just so excited to be engaged" when people ask probing questions that you aren't ready for. And when you're ready for help planning, you know where to find us!
