Engagement announcements can be exciting, joyful, nerve-wracking –or a source of stress and pain. Here are some thoughts for how to keep that important announcement positive.
We love the wedding community on Instagram and how it’s grown to be a place to find vendors, like-minded couples, and endless inspiration… even for us offbeat and alternative types! There are WAY too many amazing accounts to list here, but I decided to go digging to see who’s still rockin’ it, who’s new and hypable, and share some of the best alternative wedding Instagram accounts we could find.

There are also several other pages that have the details of the wedding, including but not limited to; attire, accommodations, parking, etc. Let’s see it!
It’s the start of the holiday season. You’re full of tryptophan and ready for a nap. OR you’re totally celebrating your freshly diamond-ed finger because your spouse (or you!) has just proposed. It’s the holidays, love is in the air. It’s engagement season, y’all.
If this is you, CONGRATS! We’re so happy for you! And we want all your friends and family to be happy, too. So here are five ways NOT to announce your engagement on social media so you don’t wreck all the fun with your wild antics.
