9 Perfect Engagement Announcements

Tie The Knot

Oh my, this is my absolute favorite engagement announcement on Instagram: a couples’ hands shown literally tying a huge knot, with the fiancée’s hand displaying a brand new engagement ring.  Perfection!

Keep It Simple… With Signage!

A smiling couple, each holding a framed chalkboard sign: hers says “She said” and his says “Yes”.  And both are grinning ear to ear!  Simply awesome!


So many different ways to announce your engagement with a Scrabble board.  You can spell it out in a crossword, or get creative with words and your beautiful new ring!  The choice is yours!

Save The Date Balloons

Seriously, is there anything more romantic than a shot of the happy couple kissing, holding balloons with their wedding date written on them?  I don’t think so!

Save The Date Sign

How about a framed sign, simple and elegant with an ampersand, your names and the date of your future wedding?  So simple, yet so elegant:

Save The Date Calendar

A simple close-up of a calendar, with your gorgeous engagement ring used to circle your wedding date?  Um, YES! This is one of my favorite engagement announcements!

Write It In The Sand

If you’re lucky enough to live near a beach, why not use it to write an engagement message in the sand?  Have a look!


How about icing some beautiful heart-shaped cookies, and spelling out a simple message about your engagement?  Simple, yet gorgeous:


There are countless ways that you can let the people in your life know that you’re engaged!  You can get creative with all kinds of different poses; choose color or black and white pictures; and you can even use wording or not, depending on your personal style.

Getting engaged is wonderfully exciting news, and should be shared in a way that speaks to you as a couple. Engagement announcements can be as simple or as complex as your own personal style mixed with some creativity!

What You Should Not Do After Getting Engaged

After the shock and excitement of the proposal, you may want to share the big news to all your family and friends. But before you start typing what to post on social media, there are some engagement etiquette rules that you should know. Here are some of the things you need to know.

Don’t announce it right away

You may be tempted to share the big news on your Facebook account but don’t! Savor the moment first. The good practice to follow in announcing your engagement is that you should only make sure you’ve let your closest friends and family members personally know before posting anything on social media. 

You may end up hurting the feelings of these people who will feel like they weren’t special enough to get a phone call or an email from you.

Don’t need for picture perfect or Instagrammable moments

Your engagement should be the highlight of the moment, not the social media post that you are planning to publish. You don’t need to have a professional photographer capture your best moment during your engagement. Instead, focus more on the engagement and the special moment that it brings. You’ll only get engaged once and it should be a lifetime memory.

Avoid taking a photo of the ring

You may have the most expensive diamond ring (or not) but truly, it’s nobody’s business. You don’t need to overshare the size of the diamond ring your fiance got you. This is because not everyone can afford such a luxury. It’s best to stay modest about your engagement.

Don’t post too many engagement photos

You may be too excited to share photos of the big news but don’t post too many pictures on social media. Choose the best ones and focus on posting the photos from the upcoming wedding instead.

Don’t overshare details about your wedding

Keep things private until after the big day. You don’t need to share the people who are part of your wedding party since it might upset the ones who were expecting an invite.

I hope you enjoyed my ideas for engagement announcements!  How did you announce yours?
