1. Social Media


Social media is one of the most popular ways to announce your engagement. Whether you choose to use Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok, social media is the way to go. That's why it's first on our list of 7 Ways to Announce Your Engagement. You can choose to go live on Facebook or Instagram or even use the story option which lasts for 24 hours. This is a great way to get the word out to the masses in just one click!



2. Tell the Story


Sharing your proposal through storytelling is another great way to let the people who love you know that you're getting married. If you get engaged at the Grand Canyon, why not share the story with photos of the two of you hiking through the mountains. Not to mention that the views are amazing.



3. Throw a Party


If you are looking for a reason to host a party and drink champagne, this is also listed as one of our 7 Ways to Announce Your Engagement. Gathering everyone in one space to share your big news is very exciting and the perfect setting to let everyone know.



4. Engagement Photos


Another awesome way to let friends and family know that you are getting married is to have a photographer take some great engagement photos of the two of you. Most photographers have engagement packets included in their wedding packages for an extra fee. If you invest in engagement photos, you get to see if the photographer is the right fit for your wedding day.



5. Involve the Family Pet


For animal lovers, involving the family pet is not only a way to get the entire family involved but it's also just so darn adorable. I've seen couples dress up their furry family members or hang a cute sign around their necks. Both of these are great ways to let the world know that you're engaged.



6. Show Off the Bling


Some expressions go without saying a single word. Also, included in our 7 Ways to Announce Your Engagement is to show off that ring. Take plenty of pictures of your new bling and post them on your social media. You can get very creative with this one. You can show yourself holding a mug that says "does this ring make me look engaged".



7. Status Change


Everyone on social media notices when there is a change in your status whether it's in a relationship, engaged, or married. This is a great way to let friends and family know that you are recently engaged.
