Getting engaged can be one of the most exciting times in a person’s life. It’s the beginning of a new time for you and your partner, and brings with it the anticipation of the imminent wedding. Once you or your partner has popped the question, now you want to tell your friends and family. There are so many creative, clever and funny ways to reveal the news to your loved ones, so here we’ve curated a list of our favourite ideas.
Collate an Engagement Box
Put together some small boxes of cliched wedding items, such as a garter, fake engagement or wedding rings, wedding cake toppers and photos of the two of you as a couple. Most importantly, at the very bottom of the box put the crucial “We’re getting married!” message. Invite all your closest friends and family over for a dinner, with the engagement boxes at the table places for the guests to discover the big news.
The Classic Creative Photo
This is an oldie but a goodie, and one that you can look back on with fondness for years. Get creative with the “She said yes” or “We’re getting married!” message, write it on a sign, in the sand, put the message on matching mugs and get the photo. Make sure to include the ring, the most important part. Post or email them out to those closest to you or put the photo up on social media, and wait for the excited responses to come flooding in!
Host a Garden Party
You’ve gotten engaged! It’s a time for celebration and absolutely cause for a party. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t combine the announcement with the engagement party into one big bash, so invite your friends over, get a cake and balloons and share the news with everyone with a grand toast.
Get the Pets Involved
If you have a pet as a couple, they are a huge part of your life, so why not include them in the announcement? Get a photo of them with a sign announcing the news, or photoshop an adorable card to post or email out to your favourite people.
