Our Favorite Fun Engagement Announcements | Analyzing

It’s now the post-holiday season, which means our social media streams are about to be blanketed with fun engagement announcements. We couldn’t be happier about that! This is the time of year the Just Marry! team looks forward to the most.

If you’ve just gotten engaged, congratulations! Now it’s time to let everyone know. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite engagement announcement ideas that I hope inspire you as you decide how to share your own big news!

SHOW OFF THE RING

This might be the most straightforward engagement announcement idea, but it’s still so much fun! Take a photo with your ring front and center. Maybe place your hand on your future spouse’s shoulder as you kiss, or hold your hand out so the camera focuses on the ring with the two of you in the background. Then post the photo on social media for the world to enjoy!

TIE IT INTO A SIGNIFICANT DATE OR EVENT

If you got engaged over the holidays or around another significant event, use that to inspire a fun engagement announcement! For example, you could take a photo of your ring looped around an ornament and post a photo with the caption, “I got the best gift ever for Christmas…and I said yes!” Or get a pic of the two of you kissing under a sprig of mistletoe and caption the photo with a similar announcement.

One of our favorite engagement announcements came from one of our Just Marry! wedding planners, Danielle. She got engaged on Super Bowl weekend and posted a photo of herself with her fiancé as she held out her hand with the engagement ring. It read, “It doesn’t matter who wins the Super Bowl tonight since I brought home the ring!” We absolutely loved it!

LET A SIGN DO THE WORK

If you’re crafty or know someone who is, why not announce your engagement using a pretty, handcrafted sign that you two hold together? Whether it’s calligraphed onto a canvas, pressed into old barn wood, woven into a flag banner, or etched into glass, your engagement announcement will be sure to make a statement!

INVOLVE PROPS

Make your engagement announcement more personal by involving props that reflect your personalities! Do you two enjoy playing board games? Spell out a message like, “I said yes” in Scrabble tiles and hold them in your newly-beringed hand, or write a similar announcement into a Crossword puzzle and hold it up for the camera (with your ring visible, of course!).

Are you sports fans? Pose in front of your favorite team’s stadium or while holding a pennant and caption the photo, “We’re taking it all the way…she said yes!” Feel free to get creative!

MIMIC YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE

Are you two movie fans? Stage a scene from one of your favorite movies and turn it into a fun engagement announcement! We suggest making this a video announcement rather than a photo to fully get the scene across. Just imagine the reactions you’ll get from your friends and family…and maybe even perfect strangers if it ends up going viral!

HOST A PARTY

Want a fun engagement announcement that’s more than just posting a photo? Invite all of your closest family members and friends to come party with you and share the big news in person! If you’ve already decided on a date or theme, you can incorporate those into the announcement party, like writing the date on large latex balloons.

TRAVEL SOMPLACE SIGNIFICANT TO YOU

Another fun engagement announcement idea is having a photoshoot done somewhere that holds meaning for the two of you. Think of a shoot on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, in front of Cinderella’s Castle in Walt Disney World, walking along the Thames in London, or standing on a romantic beach. Not only will the engagement announcements be amazing, you’ll be creating another wonderful memory together!

INCLUDE YOUR KIDS AND/OR PETS

By the time you’re engaged, your pets have probably become family for you both. You might even have kids together, so how fun would it be to include them in your engagement announcements? Have your kids hold a sign, or hang a sign around your pet’s neck reading, “Mom and Dad are getting married!” Then get a photo of the two of you hugging your kids/pets or kissing over top of their heads. Too adorable!
