Congratulations – you’re engaged!! Now what?
We understand you may feel the urge to want to post your perfectly thought out announcement right away on social media. I mean, it is one of the most exciting times of your life and we all know that weddings are a hot topic on social media right now. It’s perfectly normal to want to be part of that conversation instantaneously.
Although this is true, it’s always, always best to tell your loved ones first in person, starting with your parents. It’s the most respectful approach and since this is one of the most exciting moments in your life, it only makes sense to include those who have stuck by you through it all. After you’ve notified your parents of the big news, make your way down the family tree on both sides with immediate family first and distant family second. After you and your fiancé make your rounds in the family, reach out to your closest friends before making that big announcement online. Oh and try your best to have all these conversations in person since face-to-face news means a lot more than just a simple text or call. What’s better than actually seeing your loved one’s reactions to your big news anyways?!
Okay, all your meaningful conversations are over and NOW you finally get to post your originally crafted announcement with your sparkly new ring posing pretty. Get creative and have some fun with your official debut as a future Mrs!

So this just happened yesterday! It was a complete surprise! Taylor said he couldn't come to NY because he had to work, and he had a special birthday surprise for me to make up for it. So I was all ready for a dinner I thought I was going to with my sister, and a limo shows up at Bryant park (this is where Taylor and I met) and I'm thinking this is a birthday present, and I'm crying because I wish it were my engagement. The limo takes us to the restaurant where Taylor and I had our first date. I find flowers and a long five page letter telling me how he feels about me. Then they say to get back in the limo, and they take me to Columbus circle where we had our first kiss, and I see Taylor standing there! Up until I saw him I did not believe he was actually in NY! Then the limo took us to River Cafe (the most beautiful restaurant I've ever been to) #bestdateever #howheasked
