5 ways NOT, we repeat, NOT to tell people you’re engaged

We know you want to scream it from the rooftops: I’m ENGAGED!  And hell, why not? This is probably going to be one of the most exciting times of your life. But, as Proposal Planners and experts, we do have a bit of advice on how NOT to announce your engagement (we repeat, how NOT to announce your engagement…)

1. At a friends wedding

We’ve all heard about the bride whose wedding was ruined because someone decided to steal her thunder and propose. This, in our minds, is just mean. There are 364 other days of the year for your man to propose!  (And if he does decide to do it at your best friends wedding, then why not keep it to yourselves – a romantic little secret – until after the celebrations when you can claim the attention all as you own)

2. By Bragging

Sure, your engagement ring might be the size of Pluto and it probably does cost more than the average man’s yearly salary….BUT, bragging is an ugly habit. I once had a friend who told anyone who would listen just HOW many diamonds there were in her engagement ring. (and I mean ANYONE who would listen.) It wasn’t pretty….

3. With an awkward engagement photo

Some people love them, some people hate them: Engagement photos.  Whilst we are all for getting a secret photographer to take a shot WHILST the proposal is happening, we do worry that engagement shoots are a bit self obsessed. Whilst having  a wedding photographer on the days itself if a must have, posing whilst staring deeply into each others eyes in a ‘we are so in love I promise’ way just seems slightly too awkward. And sending said photo out as an engagement announcement is just wrong.

Keep your eyes peeled on our blog to find out exactly how you SHOULD announce your engagement…coming soon!
