The Cutest Ways to Announce Your Engagement on Instagram

Your followers are guaranteed to double-tap these adorable posts!

Thirty years ago, if you wanted to share the news of your engagement, you'd post an engagement announcement in the local newspaper. But in 2015, there's a new way to share news of your impending wedding: Instagram!

This is perhaps the most exciting Instagram post you've shared so far, so take the time to plan a cute photo and caption. Highlight your new ring, the proposal, your fiancé – whatever inspires you. If there was ever a time to make sure the photo was well-composed and not blurry, this is it! Also, if you'll be showing off your ring, this is a great time to give yourself a pretty manicure!

We scoured Instagram to find adorable, unique ways newly engaged couples are announcing their engagement. Get inspired by their creative posts!
