16 Fun Engagement Announcements That Are Easy to Recreate

Congratulations! The moment you have been waiting for is FINALLY here — you’re engaged! Rocking a new ring and a new partner for life, you’ve officially entered the wedding planning phase and before things start to get pretty crazy (and fast!) there’s something you must first do! (Other than snuggle and kiss and hug your new fiancé, that is.)  TELL THE WORLD YOUR NEWS with engagement announcements.

Whether you want to shout it from the roof tops, make a carefully curated social media post you’ve always dreamed of or send a wedding announcement in the mail, there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Everyone loves happy news!

Here are some of our favorite ways to share the good news with your family and friends, including beautiful announcements by Minted.

Phone Calls / Facetime

For those closest to you, nothing beats hearing the news face to face. But if you can’t contain your excitement (and why should you?! You’re ENGAGED!) the next best thing is to personally deliver the news via a phone call, or FaceTime! We love the idea of face-timing your inner circle so they can see your joy, and share in it with you. Just make a quick mental list of parents, grandparents, siblings, and best friends you definitely want to reach out to before doing anything else, like posting on social media.

Social Media 

If you don’t post it on social, did it even happen? Whether you prefer a Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok announcement, chances are you’re going to do a bit more than post “We’re engaged!” 

A cute picture of the proposal in action, a selfie from moments after, or a cute handholding picture are among some of our favorite shots, but do what feels right for you! Some brides-to-be love posting a ring picture, and others prefer to keep the details of their new bling a bit more private. 

Oh, and before you post — make sure you and your new fiancé are on the same page about what you’re sharing, and to who. Ensure you’ve already contacted those closest to you so they can hear the incredible news straight from you and not while they are scrolling through. 

Engagement Announcements

Tangible, beautifully designed engagement announcements are a great and classic way to announce you’re officially getting married! Different than a traditional save the date that lets guests know they are invited to your upcoming nuptials and the details they’ll need to attend, use these engagement  announcements to spread the exciting news of your engagement the old fashioned (we prefer classic) way — snail mail! Everyone loves opening happy news while opening the mail, so give the people what they want!

Minted offers so many beautiful designs for engagement announcements — from classic to funny, modern or elegant, and more. Put photos from your actual engagement to good use. Or, opt to use a quote from your favorite love song/poem. But the fun part here is to focus on designing something you love, without needing to share any other details. That comes later!

Some of our favorites from Minted include the simple, It’s a Date design with black and white color scheme and featuring a favorite photo or the elegant and foil-pressed Our Day design with an gorgeous, intricate floral border.

Party Invitation

Can’t figure out how to make the announcement? Then gather all those near and dear to your heart and throw yourselves a party! Everyone can join together to celebrate in your engagement while wining and dining as your cheers to your beautiful future together. Minted offers gorgeous engagement party invitations for every type of party, from an elegant affair to a casual backyard barbeque. Some of our favorites include the Modern Brilliance design, available in five color themes with gorgeous foil-pressed elements, and the timeless Purest collection, which takes a gorgeous engagement photo of your choice and prints in black and white with elegant white font.
