This "engaged AF" coffee mug just made me do a spit take (from my sadly un-hilarious coffee mug). And it made me think… We talked about ways to NOT announce your engagement on social media. Now let's talk about some kick-ass ways to let your friends and family know about your great news!

These are some of my favorite things like engagement announcements, invitations, photo props, and products that'll help announce your engagement without inducing eye rolls…

Say non-traditionally traditionally:

Engagement announcements and party invitations don't have to be stuffy and grossly gendered. Etsy is a treasure trove of alternative engagement announcements, and with Minted's personalization feature, you can turn any engagement party invitation into your own thing…

Say it with animals:

You could pretty much break any kind of news to me as long as it coincides with a cat pun or an adorable dog face, and I'll smile…

Say it with engagement photos:

Go ahead and schedule a fun engagement shoot, but make sure to grab some of these props so you can post a witty "we got engaged photo" on the interwebs…

Say it with your story:

Everyone loves a good love story! Tell your story — from meet cute to engaged — with stationery, or in comic book form…
