Default After getting engaged...did you call everyone?

Random q spurred by reading someone's wedding page...

So for those that have been engaged...did you immediately call everyone & let them know? Or did you take the time to just be happy with one another?

I don't think either is right or wrong, but I think (not that I would know)...I'd rather just take personal time with my new fiancee rather than call everyone.

My cousin recently got engaged... They basically called heir parents and grandparents, then put it up on Facebook for everybody else to see cause no way were they calling everyone

Everyone? No.
I called my mom, sisters, and dearest friends (3) The others found out a bit at a time either from word of mouth or running into each other.

There was no facebook or myspace back then or I would've utilized that resource, lol

Yeah LOL. I think that's how it happens most often these days. The important people who need to hear it from you first (parents, best friends) get a call... everybody else finds out when you change your Facebook relationship status hahaha.

Basically this. I called the girls I wanted to be my bridesmaids too but that was about it.

Like...RIGHT after!?

Sorry, I guess I meant in the moments following the popping the question... not like, how did you get the word out.

Just wondering if it was done immediately or if anyone waited a few hours or a day to tell the most important people.

I would absolutely tell my parents, siblings, and other family members/close friends.

IF it ever happened - I would call my few close friends first. Then facebook it/parents.

In this case I would probably wait til the "date" ended (assuming the guy makes an event of it) or the next day or something.
