Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
A joyful season has arrived. Not just because Christmas is around the corner, but also because of the many happy couples who get engaged at this time of year. But, while this is reason for great joy, many couples are not sure how to share their news in a social media driven world. Should the lady take a picture of her ring and post it to Twitter the moment she receives it? Should the man post an exuberant status update to Facebook the moment she says yes? These are valid questions that many couples are asking.
Katie Aweida, a seasoned event designer, has been helping couples for a long time with wedding plans. She has mastered the art of everything wedding-related, and just wrote a guide on how to properly announce an engagement. Click here to view the complete article.
“We know how you guys and gals get with your smartphones these days,” Katie exclaims. “It’s like the Old West’s ‘Who’s the fastest draw,’ except, instead of revolvers, we have iPhones. Slow down, Quickdraw, there are a lot of people in your life – and some of them should hear your exciting news before your announcement is being shared and retweeted. So, before you press that “post” button on your phone, you should check out our engagement etiquette guidelines on notifying the important people of your recent engagement.” She then provides a list of people to tell about the engagement and the order in which to tell them.
The first people a newly engaged couple should tell are their children - if they have previously had kids. Children, and even teens, should be in the know if they are potentially going to be having step-brothers and step-sisters. Secondly, the couple should break the news to their parents. The rest of the family and close friends come next in line. After that, the news can be sent out to the internet world. This is a brief breakdown of the information that can be gathered from Katie Aweida and Wonderstruck Event Design.
