While I'm not officially engaged yet, my boyfriend of over three years told me (because he's horrible at keeping anything a secret) that the ring is purchased, and it's just a matter of time until he finds the right time to "properly" ask me. He's already discussed everything with both families and we're even already in the process of deciding some details about where and when we'll get married, since we currently live abroad and his family is back in Lebanon while mine are in the US.
Anyways, since I have a little time to prepare, I want to make sure when I notify my friends and family of my engagement, I can do it properly without making anyone upset. I was wondering how you recently engaged (or not so recently) handled notifying your loved ones? Who did you include in your phone call/texts and how long did you wait to update your social media pages? Did you run into any issues of people feeling upset about how you told them? I'm also unable to do it in person due to living abroad, so any opinion on etiquette about texting you announcements?
Would love to hear your ladies stories and input!
