Your engagement is a special moment that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. However, telling friends and family the big news is almost equally thrilling. There are plenty of unique, memorable ways to announce this milestone to the people you love. At Ella Rose, we’re passionate about providing our clients with resources to check off everything on their bridal planning list. We’ve rounded up our top tips on breaking the news of your engagement in the most exciting ways.
Announce Your Engagement in a Big Way
Newspaper marriage announcements are so passe. These days, modern brides and grooms are concocting fun and new ways to share their good news with the world. Make your engagement announcement memorable! Check out these suggestions to find ideas that surprise your friends and family.
Professional Engagement Shoots
When it comes to sharing engagement news, photoshoots are a common choice, but opting for the traditional, happy couple headshot isn’t very exciting. If you want to upgrade the way you announce your news, consider a post that makes your engagement ring the star of the show. Play with perspective and have your photographer use the engagement ring as a silhouette where you can see the two of you in the foreground—extra points if you get a gorgeous sunset shot.
You can also shoot in a place meaningful to you and your sweetheart, like the location of your first date or the setting where you first met. You can even recreate your first photo together! Side by side you can see just how far you have come.
Pets are beloved members of the family, so it’s only logical to want to include them when you announce your engagement. Take a playful and cute pic of your beloved Fido or Fluffy with a sign saying, “My humans are getting hitched!” Who doesn’t want to see more pups on their feed? No friend of ours!
Give Them a Sign
Speaking of signs, chalkboard announcements are a great option for sharing your engagement news. You and your sweetie can hold the sign while a friend or professional photographer snaps away. Choose from more traditional messages or silly sayings, such as, “This just got real.”
Not a fan of having your picture taken? If you or your partner are camera shy then you might prefer a caricature over an official portrait. The best caricature artists can create customized images tailored to both your personalities and interests. You could ask that the artist draw the two of you as characters from a TV show or even as your favorite animal. After the announcement, you can keep the original and hang it in your future home as a sweet reminder.
