Congratulations! You’re either engaged, or you think a proposal is coming, so planning out the perfect Instagram engagement caption should be top of your wedding checklist.

Deciding on your caption for your engagement announcement has never been more important as, these days, people are reserving all life-changing announcements exclusively for social media. For many, revealing the gender of a baby, announcing an engagement or sharing first-look wedding pictures can only be done via the 'gram.

So, how do you come up with the perfect Instagram engagement caption that will showcase how pleased you are that you just got engaged, and also represent yours and your partner's relationship? Some are looking for funny engagement captions to add some humour into the moment, whilst others will want a romantic quote from literature or some celebrity engagement ring reveal inspiration. 

Ideally, you want  to write an engagement announcement caption that sums up your relationship and what's just happened, without going on for too long - you don’t want to lose the room now do you?

How to Announce Your Engagement on Social Media?

Announcing your engagement on social media can be done in a number of ways.

There are more social media platforms than ever nowadays, but Instagram is the main place you will find engagement announcements and engagement selfies. If you want to use static pictures, you can create a carousel on Instagram with up to ten pictures of your engagement! You could tease the big moment using pictures to lead up to it, or start with the ring picture and then add some behind the scenes pictures from after. 

More tech-savvy couples may want to create a reel of their engagement to share on Instagram or TikTok. Reels can be made using videos or static images and you can add your choice of music or voice over to it to make it even more personal. 

When announcing your engagement on social media, we'd always advise that you let everyone super important to you know before you post anything publicly. Together, create a list of who you'd want to tell in person or one-on-one and have that done before you click 'post'. 

You can even post your Instagram engagement announcement as a 'collaboration post', where you both share it to your feeds at the same time, with the same caption.

Now you've got the engagement caption ready, it's time to choose the perfect engagement party outfit for the first of many celebrations! We also have a round up of the nicest engagement shoot outfits if you're planning on hiring a wedding photographer to capture your special memories.
