Best Ways to To Share The Big Engagement News

Best Ways to To Share The Big Engagement News

We are loving Wedding Paper Divas' video blogs. On this week's Small Talk Big Day, Amber gives advice for all those who are newly engaged! It’s hard to keep the fun news a secret, but Wedding Paper Divas' expert lends some thoughtful tips and ways to properly announce and share the big engagement news to everyone. We are loving this advice!

  • Be sensitive >> This will be one of the biggest moments in your life! Before you tell your entire circle about the big news, make sure you and your partner tell your closest friends and family first. (PIP echoes this advice — SO SO TRUE!)
  • Stay off social media >> As you call your parents, siblings, grandparents, best friends, and so on, make sure you tell them to keep the news a secret. They should not be allowed to Tweet about it, before you get to!
  • Make it count >> Once you find the right time to let the world know about your engagement, take pictures of just the two of you. Your sweet announcement should not become a Facebook image gallery of your engagement ring. Keep it classy!

75% OFF Tote Bags – Until Noon on Cyber Monday ONLY!

75% OFF Zazzle Tote Bags on Cyber Monday

75% OFF Tote Bags – Until Noon on Cyber Monday ONLY!

If you are even considering giving your out of town guests a welcome bag for your wedding or Bar Mitzvah or Quinceanera or special anniversary or whatever special event you are celebrating, today is the day to buy it!  We should know — just this year we searched far and wide for a beach style tote for a destination wedding.  The task was not only daunting, we were basically unsuccessful in our hunt for the perfect bag because we could not find an affordable quality tote bag anywhere.  Today, Zazzle has changed that paradigm by offering 75% OFF Tote Bags for a very special Cyber Monday Deal. Bags normally priced at $10.95 are selling for just $2.74.  Even the most expensive Impulse Tote Bags normally priced at $29.95 are only $7.49.  Based on experience, we recommend not sizing up unless your plan is to fold the bag and include it as part of the gift rather than stuffing the bag itself. Too big of bags are almost impossible to fill without the gift looking skimpy. You will be surprised at just how much can fit in even the budget tote bag.  Continue Reading →
