    We were in Mexico when we got engaged (at 3:30am), so we had to first wait until people woke up back home to call them, then we flew home that same day and began calling friends and family to tell them the news before posting it online. Once everyone was told then we posted it on social media.

    We posted on social media almost right away! We were in Florida so we didn't want to put a lot of roaming charges on our phones. We called both parents and messaged close friends when we had WIFI before posting on social media.

    Yes, however we got engaged the evening of December 28th, and we waited until we had called/personally messaged everyone we wanted to tell directly, and I didn't post anything til about 9-10am the next morning.

    We shared it on social media, I told my parents and sister and a few other friends and family. My FH chose not to share with his family, his parents both knew he was proposing they just didn't know when. We waited a few days before posting, I had a list of people to tell before posting.

    We DEFINATLEY shared on social media. but not right away.

    he proposed on a cruise. so the people we were with (we were on a destination wedding cruise that had 120 people on it) found out that same day and next day. the next couple of days when we were in port, we attempted to get wifi to talk to some family members and could only get through to a couple. at the end of the cruise, while waiting in florida for our return flight (so 6 days later) we called the family/friends that we wanted to tell. FH's mom was upset that we didn't call from the Caribbean. sorry...not paying that roaming charge! haha

    my FH was getting impatient because one of my friends wasn't reading her messages and he wanted to share it on FB. once she replied and I said she knows, he posted in 2 seconds. hahah

    We were in Cuba when he proposed. So his sister and brother in law knew. We let his family know that night, and I emailed my dad and sister that night.

    Waited until we called the important family members before posting it on social media

    Well I proposed to my FH on Dec. 30th last year so because I'm the girl - he insisted that he at very minimum asked my Dad for permission before we announced anything to anybody. (Although I had talked about proposing to him with my BFF.) Side note: my Dad has a severe concussion that makes day-to-day life pretty challenging so we would have to catch him on a good day. With that being said, he didn't ask my Dad until a week or so later and after that we told all of our immediate family in person, friends over the phone, and then posted it as a FB status update Smiley laugh

    We videochatted/ phoned our parents, siblings, grandmas, and best friends the night of the proposal and the the next day we announced the engagement on social media.

    Yes, we did. But we waited and kept it quiet and just between us for about 2 weeks. ❤

    Yes! I think I waited a day or so to post it on social media but we let close family and friends know that he pop the question that night.

    We called our families and texted our close friends, then shared on facebook and instagram! It was very exciting, absolutely no one knew he was going to propose except a couple of his friends and two of mine.

    We didn’t get engaged with any fanfare so I haven’t shared in on social media with any fanfare either.

    We’ve got a wedding website and a wedding Instagram account for invited guests. I recently learned that IG snitches and suggests pages to people based on their contacts and friend lists, so it’s not as private as I’d like but I’m 4 months away as of the 20th and am trying to focus on letting the joy of it all sink in.😊

    I called my kids, best friend and parents from South Africa, and shares with those close to us personally but have never shared on social media... was tempted but decided that we’d rather just let those know that we actually see in person 😊

    We waited a couple of hours before letting anyone know. We were out in a cabin, in the middle of the mountains, with no cell reception!

    When we came back, we called our parents/siblings and best friends. We finally posted a joint instagram picture to let everyone know!
