Creative Ways to Announce Your Engagement
July 15th, 2021
Once the question has been popped, it's time to share the news with loved ones. Getting engaged is incredibly exciting, so why not plan a creative way to share that shows off your unique couple style? You'll want to let people in on the excitement as soon as it happens, so be prepared to share with these five unique ways to announce your engagement!
HAVE A THEME IN MIND
If you or your partner didn't hire someone to take pictures during your actual proposal, don't stress! You can soak up your newly engaged bliss and wait to hire a photographer or even take self-timer photos to take pictures of your partner and your ring. These can be posted to social media or shared with friends and family to share your excitement.
If you decide on a professional photographer, we recommend you choose a creative theme to stand out from the crown. Consider recreating the scene at the spot where you first met. Even if it seems mundane, this spot will hold special meaning for the rest of your life. Ditch the awkward photos by staging your photoshoot where you feel most comfortable—at home. This can help you to capture genuine laughter and loosen you up to get those sweetly intimate shots.
USE YOUR PET TO SHARE THE NEWS
Pose your pet with your ring or with a sign announcing your engagement. If you're an animal lover and know you want your pet to be part of your big day, this is the perfect place to start! Get your pet in on the excitement by posing them for a picture or video to share your news. Have them don a sign that lets the world know their parents are tying the knot.
BALLOONS TO TELL
Numbered balloons have been a hit at birthdays or celebrations, but couples have now started using them for their engagement announcement. Buy some numbered balloons and pair them with an engagement ring balloon to announce your engagement date or future wedding year. If the date is still up in the air, no pun intended, you can also order “She Said Yes“ balloons or future “Mr. & Mrs“ to share the news. For a Disney-inspired announcement, get a huge bundle of rainbow-coloured balloons and recreate the scene from Pixar's Up. Adventure is out there!
CREATIVE CARICATURE DRAWINGS
Some couples prefer to stay off-camera, so a traditional photoshoot might not fit the bill. If you and your partner relish never taking life too seriously, you might consider an over-the-top caricature drawing to announce your engagement. No pictures necessary!
Of course, you can also get a beautiful artist rendering of the moment of the proposal or the two of you together in a variety of sweet poses. Nerdy couples will delight in a commissioned art piece where the two of you become the characters in your favourite film or TV show. The options are endless, plus this is a great avenue to support your local artists!
POP THE CONFETTI IT'S TIME FOR A PARTY
With most communication revolving around technology and social media these days, nothing is more special than receiving an in-person announcement. Include those closest to you for a chance to celebrate all together. You can show off your ring in person before taking to social media to make the big announcement. Throwing a party will help those you love share in the excitement with a memory you will all hold dear for years to come.
