Getting engaged is by far one of the most exciting times in your life. You have made a commitment to marry the person you love, and you have just been given a beautiful diamond engagement ring.
The first thing you probably want to do is snap a picture and post it online. You want to tell all your friends on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. BUT, before you do that, it’s important to read these rules for announcing your wedding engagement online:
RULE #1: TELL THE IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE OFFLINE FIRST
While it may be tempting, before you upload the photo of your beautiful new engagement ring and share it online, make sure you take the time to tell your family and close friends in person. How would you feel if your best friend or sibling announced their engagement online before telling you?
RULE #2: IF YOU ARE NOT THE ONE GETTING ENGAGED, IT’S NOT YOUR NEWS TO SHARE
When someone in your life gets engaged, it’s difficult to hold in your excitement. But, before you go online to post how happy you are for the newly engaged couple in your life, remember that it is their news to tell. Wait until they announce the news on social media before you post about the news.
RULE #3: BE CREATIVE AND HAVE FUN WITH IT
Social media has changed the way people announce their engagement. You have so many platforms, tools, and creative ways you can share the new. So, use them. Be creative and have fun with how you share the news with your friends online.

RULE #4: SHOW IT OFF WITH AN ENGAGEMENT RING SELFIE
We live in the era of the selfie and an engagement ring selfie is the perfect way to show people your new engagement ring. Everyone wants to see it and you should be proud to show off the new symbol of your love.
RULE #5: ACKNOWLEDGE WELL WISHES
Once you post a picture of your engagement ring and announced that you are engaged to the world, make sure that you thank everyone that has taken the time to congratulate you. A simple thank you and liking their comments is sufficient. At the very least, send out one comment addressing everyone, thanking them for the kind words.
RULE #6: FOCUS ON LOVE, NOT THE RING
While the diamond ring is beautiful and important, remember that getting engaged is about taking the next step in your life. Don’t lose sight of the fact that your engagement ring is a symbol of your love and commitment for each other. How big the diamond is and how much it costs is not as important as its meaning.
