Whether you have a chalkboard, want to print something out, or buy a pre-made sign online, this is one of the top engagement selfie ideas. Let your creative juices run free and find a witty way to write down the news. Hold the sign, snap a pic, and post away!

To help you brainstorm, here are a few ideas of what you could write on the sign:

  • "I'm going to be a Mrs."
  • "We're getting hitched!"
  • "He asked, and I said yes."
  • "Call me Mrs. ____ (Insert your fiance's last name)"
  • "I said yes!"
  • "He stole my heart so I'm stealing his last name!"


2) Get Creative With A Prop

Using props takes a little more planning, but is totally worth all those "likes" you will rack up on Facebook and Instagram. If you and your new fiance are the creative types, try one of these witty engagement announcements by snapping a pic with props like a mug or scrabble pieces. These types of photos make perfect engagement announcements on Instagram because of their photogenic nature. Some other ways you can creatively use a prop include:

  • Holding balloons that say "Mrs." and "Mr."
  • Using an gorgeous Mrs. Box or the original box from the proposal
  • Placing the engagement ring on a prop that he used in the proposal (champagne glasses, wine cork, food, etc.)
  • Using a calendar to lay the engagement ring on (mark the date of the engagement)


3) Post A Ring Selfie With Him

Want something a little more than a typical engagement ring selfie? Well the perfect way to make it personalized is to throw your fiance in the background. One of the most original engagement ring picture ideas we found was to take a focused picture of your new ring and have your fiance jumping, smiling, or holding a thumbs up in the background! This way the ring will be perfectly clear and in focus and your fiance will be visible, but slightly blurry. This is a charming and unique flare that will make your engagement selfie that much more adorable. I mean you've got to give him credit right? He did pick out that gorgeous ring.

4) Come Up With A Witty Caption

Simplicity at its finest. Take a subtle photo of you and your fiance (with the engagement ring visible) and write a witty caption - maybe something along the lines of "see something new?" These can be one of the best engagement announcement posts because they’re simple, classy, and direct -  just get the exciting news out there! If you are just itching to post the news right away, snapping a selfie with engagement rings is quick and easy, and will allow you to post almost instantly. Other caption ideas include saying:

  • "My latest and greatest accessory"
  • "Oh hello!"
  • "I spy a sparkly diamond"
  • "He put a ring on it!"
  • "[Insert engagement date]"


5) Announce It On A T-Shirt

Sometimes, an engagement announcement on social media gets the most engagement when the format is unexpected. This idea takes a little more time but is totally worth it. There are dozens of shirts online that can be ordered and have adorable and funny engagement announcements that speak for themselves. Or maybe he got you this shirt when he proposed because he knew this would be right up your alley (hello fashionistas!). So, take a quick pic wearing the t-shirt and post away.

  • "I said yes!"
  • "Mrs."
