He proposed, you cry, and you're both ecstatic. But now what? So after he proposes the first thing you want to do is tell your family. You are also going to want everyone else you've ever spoken with to know also, which is absolutely fine! Social media is a beautiful thing. You can post an adorable picture of you and your new fiance on instagram for the whole world to see. BUT it's important that you tell family and close friends FIRST. You don't want you aunt or your brother to find out you are engaged because of a picture on instagram or facebook. Call who you need to call first, and then share your happiness with everyone.
Exactly what kind of picture do you want to post? A selfie? A picture of just your hand? A picture of you and your husband showing off your newly blinged out hand There's so many different ways you can go about taking pictures like this. Keep in mind that I'm not talking about the actual engagement photos that you would take with a professional photographer or anything like that. These are just pictures that someone would post just so everyone can know the great news! Here are a few that are my favorite.

I love this one because its creative and cute and it shows off the couples goofy side! I also love that they are both in the picture because the groom-to-be is also 50% of the couple; he should be included too.  

This one's for the java lovers. Again, the groom-to-be and the bride-to-be are both featured in the instagram. It's also sweet and to the point.  

 

When your animals are so important in your life, you don't even think twice about featuring them in you first wedding announcement. Just look at those puppy faces!

This one is for all the foodies out there! #respect. Honestly I really like this one because of all of the color in it. It looks whimsical and color gives off a playful and happy vibe and this should be a happy time in your life. 

This picture can literally be taken anywhere, its so casual, but it's still such a great way to announce your engagement. It's casual, not for the lack of effort, but because this bride-to-be just wanted a quick post to share her joy! 

This is the big kahuna of all engagement posts. I love the classic "in the moment post because it's so special and you get to see the couple's genuine reaction. Again, as I have stated before, I am partial to having both partners in the picture and this picture checks that factor off my list.
