Getting Engaged Can Bring Up Overwhelming Emotions

Getting engaged can be an incredibly exciting and important time in your life, and you probably want to capture the milestone and announce it to your loved ones in a special way. If you are looking for something more creative than the classic holding hands or kissing photos for engagement announcement ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Many couples use novel ways to announce their engagement as it's a happy, uplifting occasion that can be shared with the world in a way that conveys your love for each other. Using engagement quotes helps show the world that you are ready to spend the rest of your life with your true love. 

The following is a selection of creative ideas and quotes for a really special engagement announcement.

Engagement Photo Ideas

A popular way to announce an engagement is by using creative photos that you can upload to social media, print cards with, or send to people electronically via email, apps, etc. You can source these from your personal photos together, or you can organize a special photoshoot for this purpose alone. Add special effects, black-and-white filters, ambient lighting, etc., to lend the pictures even more visual appeal. If you really want to cultivate a consistent romantic aesthetic, developing engagement announcement ideas now can help later on with your wedding website. Here are a few ideas for creative photo announcements.

  • Cute Pet: If you share a pet together, letting your furry friend help announce your engagement can be a fun and unique way to tell your friends and family about your upcoming nuptials. You could have your pet announce the engagement with a placard around their neck. It may help to keep the text on the sign short and striking and let your cute pet do the talking. You could take pictures of your pet alone or include yourselves. Alternatively, consider different angles and effects, such as stacking your hands and paws together or putting the ring on your pet's nose.
  • Movie Poster:For the movie buffs, you could consider customizing a movie poster using one of your engagement photos. You could consider hiring a graphic designer to help or use one of the many applications that assist in making poster layouts. You can get creative in the wording or customize an existing movie or TV series title and slogan.

  • The Ring: Take a unique photo using the engagement ring by drawing a little smiling face on each partner's ring finger. Then, position the engagement ring on the receiving partner's finger, hold your fingers together, and let the image speak for itself. Also, you could take a photo through the ring or place it somewhere unusual, like on top of your pet's head.
  • Funny Pictures: Engagement photos don't always have to be serious. Have a little fun with your announcement and come up with funny photos depicting your relationship.
  • Graphics: If you’re good with editing, use those skills for a cool announcement idea! It may take a few more planning tools, but you can use graphic design to alter digital photos and add or superimpose your photo, announcement, etc., onto anything, such as:
    • A movie house neon sign — you could take a photo of the two of you kissing in front of it!
    • A tarot card
    • Your astrological signs
    • A large road sign or advertising billboard (again, with the two of you in front of the real thing)
    • A book or album cover
    • A product label
    • A famous movie scene
    • A cute depiction of a saying or a famous quote, such as “Tying the knot,” “Madly in love,” “It feels like home to me,” “You had me at hello,” “Every pot gets its lid,” “You're a gem,” and so forth.
