Let me start by saying I've waited a long time (10 years) to get engaged, we've always known we wanted to get married but money and timing was never right. Well last week I finally got engaged and I thought I'd be super pumped but so far I'm feeling very uncomfortable being the centre of attention. People's in person reactions are tripping me out. Seems like the bf, I mean fiancee went overboard on the ring r something and now I feel weird to post the engagement announcement or even telling people the news. Like I don't want to be bragging or a show off. Even here, I don't want this to come off as a humble brag. It's just we did really well at our business this year and we decided to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Hawaii so he proposed there and my hand is really tiny so the ring looks bigger than it is. Pic included for your opinion. I thought I'd be so happy and excited to show it off!! Like I waited 10 years for this damn moment and now I just feel uncomfortable and anxious? Why!?
Any other brides out there feel uncomfortable telling people? How did you handle the social media aspect? Do you post a ring pic or not? How do you handle being the centre of attention at family events for the next little while?
