The Tacky Bride: 10 Things You Should Never Post When You Get Engaged
3. The Price
That includes not posting a “link in bio” or “swipe up” to a website with the exact ring and price!
5. While we’re at it, NO ring close-ups
Those are horrible too… If people want to see the ring up close, they can do so the next time you get together. Of course your ring can be in the picture you post, but hopefully you and maybe even le fiancé are in it too. That’s not to say that you can’t post an announcement like Lea Michelle. That was both goofy and adorable and we wish her nothing but the best.
7. Keep the Post Short & Sweet.
I love seeing people find their person, and I totally want to know how the question was popped, but can we do that over drinks? I really hate reading. I also really hate reading long texts on FB/insta that require me to click on “see more”.
I will not be “seeing more”. I will maybe like, if you’re a close friend might even comment, and then promptly forget about your happy news, because READING,*** YUCK.
***This doesn’t apply to this Blog. You have to continue reading it, because it took forever to compile a list of all these rules you need to follow - you’re welcome.
9. Social (Media) Etiquette
When you do finally post on Instagram or FB make sure to thank people! You can like the comment and then DM them a more heartfelt thank you… especially if it’s a more personal message.
I totally believe in love, and that one day I’ll be a crazy-happy-bride-to-be, and who knows, I might not take my own advice, but as someone who sees these announcements constantly, these are the things you’re going to want to avoid. Or at the very least, don’t be guilty of ALL these faux pas’.
