Social Media Etiquette for the Newly Engaged

By  | 

So, you’re on cloud nine because your significant other just proposed and you want to shout it out to the world! Before you do, take a second to read these dos and don’ts for posting on social media after you get engaged.

Do

Take a few days to relish in the moment and enjoy it between the two of you. This is a special time and you shouldn’t take away from the moment by feeling the need to post everything right after he pops the question.

Don’t

Post on social media before you tell your friends and family. How would you feel if you found out great news about someone close to you through Facebook or Twitter? These are the people that you hold dear and true; you want to let them know the big news first.

Do

Share the exciting news on your social platforms when the time is right. Post a few pictures, like a ring selfie, a picture that captures the moment or a picture that represents the two of you. Be genuine and true to yourself when posting pictures and details.

Don’t

Get wrapped up in responding to every single comment and going from each platform to the next to check your notifications. Nothing will ruin the moment more than getting caught up in your posts and the responses, because once the moment is gone, you can’t get it back.

Do

Take time to come up with a wedding hashtag that is a representation of the two of you and that will be used for your wedding to share pictures and details. You can start using this in some of your social media posts so guests will already know it on the day of your wedding.

Don’t

Ruin your experience by comparing your ring, proposal or pictures to anyone else’s. Your story is YOURS and it is special.

Do

Get your ring picture featured on the Shane Co. fan gallery! You can upload it on ShaneCo.com or post it on Instagram with #ShaneCo.

Don’t

Go overboard and upload every single photo. Choose your favorites, and post them over time to preserve the specialness of your engagement.
