Did you know that almost 40% of all engagements occur between December and February? It’s a magical time of the year. If you are recently engaged, congratulations!

Whether you want to bask in this moment privately for a few days or shout it from the rooftop, here are a few tips to start spreading the great news:

1. Tell your parents first

2. Make calls to close family and friends – they will love to hear the excitement in your voice!

3. Create an announcement – in the newspaper, by letter, via email or go eco-friendly with services like Paperless Post or Pingg to share the news

4. Go traditional – keep it quiet if you can and host an intimate gathering with your family and friends to announce your engagement

However you decide to spread your news – enjoy this moment! It’s a wonderful and natural high!

Here is a little inspiration board on new love…enjoy!

I said YES!
