What Not To Post When You Get Engaged

One of the most exhilarating moments in your life is when you get engaged. So what do most people in 2018 do when they experience a moment like this? Jump straight to social media to tell the world! Whether Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other device, people can’t wait to share things with the world.

If this person is you and you have just gotten engaged, firstly congratulations, but secondly, hold on! Here are the things to NEVER post once you have gotten engaged.

The Number Of Carats

This may seem obvious but you would be surprised how many women love to take to their smartphones to type in those precious numbers of how many carats their ring holds. This not only is a way of boasting, but we really don’t need to start guessing your fiance’s gross income. On the other hand, if you have a ring with fewer carats, maybe it is still best to avoid sharing.

Posting An Announcement Before Telling Family And Friends

Think about it – you would not like to find out one of your closest friends was engaged via their Facebook feed. So make sure you let them know before Facebook does! Regardless, no post is good enough unless it is carefully thought out, you don’t want to have any regrets. So hold on.

A Ton Of Hashtags On The Announcement Post

Save your time and thumb energy on typing a bunch of generic engagement hashtags that no one actually reads. The standard #bridetobe, #heputaringonit, #taken are overrated and, sorry to say, you may not gain as many followers as you wanted for your bride blogging dream.

Information About The Ceremony

The last thing you need is your ex-partner thinking they have received an invite to your wedding! The whole reason invitations exist is so you can whittle out the good from the bad. Share only the important details with your guests, you don’t need every Tom, Dick, and Harry turning up and taking advantage of the open bar.
