The majority of times I would just cave, because I cannot say no to that sweet smile, but this was a disagreement that I had to stand my ground on. Danielle is the type of girl that deserves the entire world, and then some. I knew from our very first day that I would do anything in my power to give it to her. I began planning a once in a lifetime proposal for my once in a lifetime girl. Little did I know, Danielle had been doing the same. She beat me to the question, but that didn’t mean she wouldn’t get her own day. I was lucky enough to attain our permits for to this beautiful destination for 2018. Although I already knew her answer, my nerves were going crazy (I guess scaling down the soaking wet Grand Canyon using sketchy chains and no climbing gear didn’t help with those nerves) As you can tell by the look on her face, she had no idea. I have never kept a secret from her and that look on her face made it all worth it. I cannot wait to marry you in another beautiful destination. As the engraving on your ring will always remind you, “up any mountain, through any valley.” I love you, Danielle Brooke. • Thank you, thank you, thank you to @morganannexx for being the keeper of my secret and ring, and for capturing our moment, to Brad and Kelsey for bringing my ring vision to life, to our hiking family for being so loving, supportive, and kind, and thank you Danielle for your love.
Let’s check out some of my favorite cards, mugs, and T-shirts, plus tips on how to use them to announce your engagement!
Engagement Announcement Cards
I love engagement announcement cards for letting far-away friends and family in on the secret. I feel like not enough people send physical cards anymore, so when they do arrive in the mail they really stand out.
You can also think of these as pre-invitation cards and send them to family, friends, co-workers and neighbors that you plan on inviting to your wedding.
Here are a few of my favorite engagement announcement cards:
Save the date cards are sent to those you plan on inviting to your wedding.
- This set of 50 cards features an image of 2 brides kissing on the front of the cards and on the backs.
- It also has plenty of space for you to pen in all the details of your wedding.
If you’re having a hard time finding a pre-made design that you love, make your own over at Shutterfly! All of their cards are super easy to personalize with your names, party date, and so on. The one above is a customized version of Enchanting Engagement.
Using Mugs to Announce Your Engagement
You can use coffee mugs a couple of different ways when it comes to announcing your engagement.
- To announce to your co-workers, set the coffee mug on your desk so everyone can see when they walk by.
- To announce to family, friends and neighbors, use the mug to serve coffee when someone comes over for lunch, dinner or just to hang out.
- Either way, sit back and watch realization dawn on their faces when they get it!
I love these mugs:
This coffee mug features the text- ENGAYGED, in rainbow colors and an image of an engagement ring. The mug is printed on both sides, making it ideal for both righties and lefties.
This dishwasher-safe/microwave-safe mug has the text- She Put A Ring On It, along with an image of a pink heart.
You can also do something clever, like these brides-to-be below, and serve coffee in your mug alongside these donuts that spell out “We’re Engaged!”
FYI, this works with other types of food, too, in case you don’t have a doughnut place that does custom orders. Spell it out in cookies, doughnut holes, or even jelly beans!
3. Fun Props to Announce Your Engagement
Below are three fabulous props that you can use together or alone to create a memorable engagement announcement. Need some ideas? Try these:
- For the banner and balloon set, consider having a dinner party and inviting some of the people that you’re going to invite to your wedding.
- And of course, a party needs decorations, right? For the cake topper, bake a cake for your dinner party, put the cake topper on top and see how long it takes for your guests to start asking question.
- Finally, for the photo props, take photos of the both of you, using the props, and then post them to your Facebook page.
This 13-piece set comes complete with 12 balloons and 1 banner. Specifically, there are 3-12” gold balloons, 3-12” gold glitter confetti balloons, 3-12” nude balloons, 3-12” pearl white balloons and 1- Miss to Mrs. gold glitter banner.
This acrylic cake topper is perfect for any 6” cake. It features a lesbian couple silhouette under a tree, with the test- Mrs. & Mrs.
You’ll no doubt have a fun time taking pictures with this props kit. It comes complete with 20 wooden dowel sticks, 20 gold photo props and adhesives.
You can also make your own photo props. Something simple and sweet stands out just as much as a store-bought prop!

4. Announce Your New with T-Shirts
There are a couple of ways to use t-shirts to announce your engagement.
- If you are headed to your best friend’s house for a cocktail party or to your mom’s house for her birthday party, definitely wear one of the t-shirts.
- Or you could wear one of the t-shirts to work on casual Friday, making it easy to let all your co-workers know that you’re engaged.
Check out a few of my favorites:
This engagement ring rainbow t-shirt features the text- ENGAYGED, and an engagement ring image, in rainbow colors. It is made from 100% cotton and comes in the color black.
This 100% cotton t-shirt features the text- Keep Calm I’m Getting Married, in rainbow colors and an image of 2 females holding hands. It is available in 5 colors- baby blue, black, navy, pink and royal blue.
This 100% cotton t-shirt features the text- Two Brides Are Better Than One, in rainbow colors. It is available in 2 colors- black and white.
With these ideas for lesbian engagement announcements, the hardest part is deciding which to use! If you can’t pick, feel free to mix things up! Use a mug at work, a t-shirt to tell your friends, and so on.
