How To Announce Your Engagement?

From a save-the-date card to a spectacular announcement at your engagement party, there are different ways to break the big news to your friends and family.

Traditionally, the bride’s parents should place an advertisement in a local newspaper, but couples can do this themselves as well. Another charming old-school way to tell everyone about your nuptials is to send out letters or cards via post. You can either send a simple note, a whimsical postcard or a save-the-date card if you know the exact date of your wedding.

It is best to tell the news to your closest friends and family members in person, and you may use the telephone if some of them live far away. Electronic mail, social media and wedding websites are practical options, but since these types of communication are much less personal, some of your nearest and dearest might be offended. If you decide to use one of these modern methods, make sure to notify those closest to you either face-to-face or via telephone.

One of the best ways to make an announcement is at a party. You can either organise an engagement bash or hide the real reason for the party until the toasts.
