When Should We Start Telling People We Are Engaged?

As thrilling as it is to be engaged, you can run into some awkward questions around when you should share your happy news. Do you rush to social media and let everyone know, or wait until you start cementing plans for the actual wedding day? Typically, couples can let everyone know shortly after their engagement, but there are a few matters to consider. You should make sure the people closest to you hear about it before the news is public, and you should be careful to avoid a poorly timed announcement. One thing couples choose to do is make the public announcement with their engagement photos. In addition to serving as a beautiful venue for outdoor weddings, Texas Old Town offers newly engaged couples the opportunity to schedule engagement photos in our lovely Texas Hill Country surroundings!

You Can Restrict Your Happy News To Close Friends And Family At First

While you do not have to go through a long wait to share the news of your engagement, give yourselves time to tell the people closest to you first. You can talk to your parents and siblings, and talk with those you intend to make maid/matron of honor or best man. If you feel that the people closest to you have all heard the news, you can go ahead with plans to start publicly talking about your engagement!

Reasons To Hold Off On Public Announcements

Depending on what is happening in your life, you may want to hold up before moving forward with your engagement news. Think about what others are doing in your life before you make an announcement. If a close friend is about to have their wedding, you might want to hold off until they have had their special day to share your news. Because couples tend to have a wider window between your engagement and the actual wedding, they can exercise a little patience if their engagement occurs near a milestone event for a close friend or family member.

You Can Announce Your News With Engagement Photos

If you are willing to wait until you have your engagement photos taken and provided to you, your engagement news can be paired with lovely images! By making a reservation to take photos at our venue, you and your partner will have access to a stunning Texas Hill Country backdrop.
