Planning an engagement announcement in the near future?
Now that you got the ring to show you must be bursting with the news and would love to shout it for all to hear. You can start by announcing to the important people in your life that you are engaged. These usually mean both set of parents and immediate family. After sharing the news with those closest to you, you can then share it to anyone who would love to know!
Creating a wedding website is the most popular avenue of engagement announcement now that the internet is just about accessible to all.
There are many ways of doing this. You can sign up with a hosting company for a free trial period and later on upgrade for a fee or find a site that allows you to create your personal wedding website for free. Once you have created your own wedding website, you can then email the website address to friends and family where they can follow your engagement story and the progress of your wedding plans.

Published announcements are normally made through the local newspapers and hometown publications of both bride and groom. You can check with your local newspaper for their requirements. They usually have a standardized form that is specifically for announcing a couple's wedding engagement.
This is used to be a free service offered by your local newspaper but I just recently discovered through a friend who just got engaged that this is not the case anymore. You can call your local newspaper office for more information on this matter. An engagement photo could be sent along with the form for publication purposes.
Getting engaged is one great reason for a party! The parents or a close family usually hosts the engagement party. It can be a simple get together of close family and friends of both bride and groom or it could be as elaborate as your parent wishes.
