Few moments in life are sweeter than the moment when your beloved asks you to be their spouse, or the moment when your beloved says yes to your offer of marriage. Deciding that this is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with is a deeply significant event, and from the moment someone says “yes”, your lives change forever. The coming months will be full of preparation and work, as you choose a venue, a date, and plan the event.
It’s no surprise that many of us want to memorialize this special time in our social media feeds. Whether it’s a post on Facebook or a story on Instagram, sharing this day with the people most important to us is a natural thing to do. You may even want to share every step of your journey with those closest to you. If you’re looking to share the journey from engagement to marriage with your friends and followers on Instagram but you’re having a difficult time coming up with good captions for your moments, we’ve got you covered.
Announcing your engagement on social media is the easiest way to spread the news about your pending nuptials—or at least, it’s easier than calling all your distant relatives to let them know. Posting on Instagram allows you to select multiple photos or videos in one post, share directly to other networks like Facebook and Twitter, and most importantly, include a caption to further explain your pictures. If you’re looking for a cheeky caption to add onto your engagement announcement, or just want some ideas for what you could say, check out some of these captions below to really make your engagement post pop!

To Your Special Someone

After all, marriage isn’t about the wedding itself but the promise you make to each other to spend the rest of your lives with one another.
