3 Things You Should Never Post on Social Media After You Get Engaged
Congratulations, you’re engaged! I hope you’re reading this with a glass of champagne nearby as you celebrate your new sparkler. Can you believe it?! I bet you can’t stop looking at your hand. But before you take a picture of your new bling to post on Instagram with the most perfect caption, read through these 3 tips to make sure you’re not breaking any rules.
1. The wedding details
I know you’re excited as can be, and maybe you even have a little Monica Geller in you and you secretly already had the venue reserved before you got engaged, BUT no matter what, don’t post your ceremony and reception details on social media. Your special day is an intimate experience to be shared with the ones you love, not with your high school Chem lab partner who you haven’t talked to since freshman year. Invitations exist for a reason.
2. The number of carats
I think this one’s pretty self explanatory. The world doesn’t need to know, and at the end of the day you love how it looks on you and the person you’re about to spend the rest of your life with. That’s all that matters. Enough said.
3. Publishing the post before telling your loved ones
You’re over the moon about your dream proposal and you want to share your exciting news with the world! I get it, I do. Wait to make sure you’ve told all your close family and friends first though before posting it on social media. Imagine finding out your best friend got engaged via Facebook. Ouch, right? Just be patient. I promise your post will be just as magical and you’ll get #allthelikes even if you do have to wait a few days.
