Getting engaged is one of the most exciting moments that a couple can experience: The build up to the actual proposal, delivering your feelings in front of the love of your life and then celebrating. But once the celebrations begin, when should you announce to the rest of social media? How many photos should you post?
FOX's Ashley Papa has this week's edition of "FOX on Love":
Valentine's Day is one of the most popular days for engagements.
If you were one of the millions who said "yes" and want to plaster your Instagram with photos of you and your fiancé, comedian and author of "Weddiculous", Jamie Lee, says wait!
Let those closest to you know first!:
(Lee) "I thinks it's doing the proper courtesy of making sure like your mom doesn't find out through Facebook because that would be awkward and probably not appropriate."
After alerting your family and friends, Lee says to post one good photo that visually says you got engaged:
(Lee) "I don't think you have to bombard people's feeds with like up to date, moment to moment documentation."
And, when announcing your engagement, Lee says you must post a pic of that ring!:
(Lee) "It needs to be like you and your fiancé and a clear picture of the ring because honestly people are really excited about you getting engaged, but they're also really materialistic in that moment and just want to see the rock."
Yes, your entire circle wants to know about your engagement, just try to announce it in a tasteful way.
With FOX on Love, I'm Ashley Papa.
