The ring is on your finger, the tears have just about dried up and the Champagne bottle is empty. You're engaged and now you've had some time alone to celebrate as a couple and soak up the moment, it's time to spread the love. Sharing your exciting engagement news is almost as exciting as the moment itself so make sure you do it right. With friends and family scattered across the country - and often, across the globe - it can be difficult to tell everybody in person, so here are some fun ways to tell the world you're getting married!

Most local, regional and national newspapers have a special section and members of the public can pay to place an announcement. A lovely way to share the news and a special keepsake for you, your family and friends. media cacheEngagement announcement cards: If you're planning on taking your time before wedding planning begins and have some engagement photos you want to share with your nearest and dearest, send out engagement announcement cards to celebrate.
