Well, there are really no hard and fast rules about engagement, but here are some practical rules that you can use to get announcing your wedding engagement right.

Rules for Announcing Your Wedding Engagement

  • Share the word with family and friends. While its only natural to want to tell the world that you are now engaged, you want to be sure that you start by telling those that are closest to you – your immediate family and friends first.  You don’t want to dampen your special moment by hurting the feeling of those you care so deeply about.
  • Tell the rest of the World. Once you have shared the good news with your family and friends now its time to make a formal announcement to the world. You can do this by either mailing announcements to distant relative and friends or simply publishing an announcement in the local media including newspaper, television. And by all mean you want to share it with us in our Real Weddings & Engagements
  • Party Time. Girl you know everyone wants to see the ring and there is no better way to show off your ring than at a party. So go ahead and plan your engagement party. Just remember that anyone you invite to the party must also be invited to the wedding and there is no asking for gifts. You want you party to be fun filled event for family and friends to enjoy themselves while celebrating with you.
