So he or she popped the question and you said yes! Once you and your brand new fiancé have had some time to bask in that post-engagement glow, and before you start wedding planning, it’s time to shout it from the rooftops. Whether you decide to post it on Instagram and Facebook, or send announcements by email, there are lots of cute and creative ways to break the news. And, since winter is also engagement season, why not incorporate a seasonal touch? Here are ten fun winter engagement announcement ideas to inspire you.
Snowy engagement shoot. If you’re planning to use professional photographs in your announcement, why not incorporate winter scenery for a romantic seasonal touch? After all, there’s nothing more magical than falling snow! Walking outdoors together, skiing, making snow angels, or sharing a kiss and a cozy plaid blanket are all sweet photo ideas you can try.
Coffee lovers. If you’re Starbucks fans, a cute idea is to have the barista write titles like ‘fiancé’, ‘bride/groom to be’, or ‘future Mrs’ on your takeaway cups instead of your names. Alternatively, you could write ‘I asked’ and ‘I said yes’ on each cup, respectively.
Custom mugs. Another fun idea incorporating hot drinks is to pose together wrapped up warm and cozy at home, holding custom ceramic mugs with matching slogans. Or, if you’d prefer a ring selfie instead of a portrait, you can do this with one of the many mugs available saying, for example, ‘does this ring make me look engaged?’ Whichever you choose, be sure to hold the mug so that it shows off your sparkly engagement ring!
Matching clothing. Custom sweaters or denim jackets are another great idea. Best of all, they work in person as well as in photos. Invite your family and friends to a party and then surprise them with your sartorial message!
Puppy love. Hands down, one of the most adorable engagement announcement ideas is to include your dog. Get a special doggie sweater made up that says ‘My humans are getting married’. Your family and friends will love it!
Evergreen love. A classic picture of the ring is always a good idea. Incorporate the winter season by placing the engagement ring around a sprig of evergreen for the perfect wintery touch.
Snowball. Another fun idea for a winter ring shot is to place the ring at the center of a heart-shaped snowball. Take a picture of both your gloved hands cupping the snowball for a super cute shot.
Written in the snow. Writing your news in beach sand is a great idea for a summer engagement, but in the winter you can create the same effect with snow. Keep it simple by writing just your initials in a heart, or the words ‘I/She/He said yes’.
Winter walk. If you want to keep it simple and spontaneous, go for a walk together and find a picturesque spot. Then, hold your ring hand up and take a photo with the winter scenery as a backdrop.
Hand written note. It isn’t specifically wintery, but hand written announcements are a lovely old-fashioned method that never goes out of season!
Whichever one of these engagement announcement ideas you choose, be sure that you share news of your Colorado wedding with the most important people first. No matter how cute the picture, your parents should never find out you’re getting married via social media!
