5 Cute Ways to Announce Your Engagement
First comes love, then comes marriage! It’s an awesome feeling to get engaged to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and it’s especially exciting to announce the big wedding to the people that share an important part of your journey as a couple. But how do you get the word out, you may ask? We've rounded up 5 cute ways to announce your engagement in style! Read through and let us know in the comments which one you like best!
Spell it out
If you are both fans of board games, this one's for you! Take scrabble letters and spell out "we're engaged!" We’re sure you friends and family will forget about the game and scream out of excitement. No board games? No problem! You could use marquee letters or letter balloons to spell out the word ENGAGED. Another cute way is to take a photo with your partner with your initials or just the word YES!
Get your best friends in on the fun
We're talking furry friends here. We’re sure every fur mom and dad would be very ecstatic to have their fur babies announce the engagement for them. You could post a picture of you and your partner together with your dear pet showing a card with the announcement and the date of your wedding. If you want your fur baby to be the only star, posting a "My best friend is getting married" with a picture of your cute pup will for sure be super cute and everyone’s going to love it!
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a memory of your announcement in the form of mugs and tees? There are so many fun bride or groom-to-be mugs, shirts, and cards that would be perfect for an announcement. Check Etsy for a custom shirt with your names and date of wedding printed or embroidered on it. You could also try Pinterest for a DIY screen print that says "Engaged!”.
Do you already have a theme for your wedding? Use your theme to announce your engagement! If for example, your wedding is travel themed then your announcement could feature a cute vintage suitcase with a "we're getting married!" banner. Fans of Harry Potter? Arrange a Harry-Potter themed engagement photoshoot and post them on social media. It’s okay if you’re changing the theme for the wedding day itself. You can always change it later!
Show off the rings
A classic way to say “We're getting married!” is showing off your gorgeous ring! This idea is especially best for busy couples who have limited time to think about a more elaborate way to announce their engagement. It's also perfect for social media because you can easily set the phone to a timer and take a quick snapshot. Let your diamond ring speak for itself!
Congratulations on your engagement! If you are looking to spread the exciting news, we hope these ideas will help you announce it in the most unique and cute way. Just keep in mind that your friends and family will have plenty of questions once you announce your engagement, so it's worth taking a little bit of time to yourself and your partner. It is, after all, all about your love story!
