'Tis the season for rings and bling bling! Between Christmas and New Years, you'll definitely see a number of proposals and engagement photos on Facebook and Instagram. It's the most wonderful time of the year, am I right? But social media isn't the only way to share the news. Spread some holiday cheer by checking out these four alternative ways to announce your engagement!
1. Deliver the News in Person
Before word starts to spread—and it will—gather your family and closest friends to share the news. Nothing beats hearing the story in person, but if distance makes that next to impossible, pick up the phone, FaceTime or Skype. They'll want to see the ring!
2. Send a Video
If your fiancé hired a videographer to capture the proposal, share the highlight reel by email or group text. Even a boomerang of your new ring will give this kind of announcement some sparkle. Don't wait to celebrate!
3. Mail an Invitation
Celebrate in style with a party! People may have already heard the news, so make it official with an engagement party invite. Get the champagne and tissues ready—it'll be an emotional one!
4. Get It Published
Go the old-fashioned route and submit your story to the local paper. Your parents and grandparents will be delighted, and you’ll have a keepsake for your scrapbook or wedding album!
Don't delay! Devour the details of these four alternative ways to announce your engagement and celebrate with family and friends today!
