At long last, you're engaged—congrats! The first thing you probably want to do (after staring at that brand-new ring if you're wearing one, of course) is tell everyone. Have you thought about your engagement announcement? In today's world, official engagement announcement cards are an underrated way to share your happy news—many couples opt for a simple announcement on social media. But if sharing a cute snapshot on Instagram isn't enough, tangible engagement announcement cards are a wonderful way to let your loved ones know about your big moment.

You can opt for a digital version that can be emailed or sent via text, or a card that you can send in the mail.
