The holidays is probably the peak season where people get engaged. That said, in case you get proposed to over the week, please keep in mind certain etiquette tips when you share it on your social media accounts. We understand that it is indeed a joyous occassion, but like everything else in this world, moderation is key. See what other people think about your engagement announcements below:

"It's a wonderful thing to announce, but please be sensitive to people who will not be invited to the wedding. It's highly unlikely that your entire feed will get an invitation, so keep details such as the date and guestlist on the downlow." - Paula, Married

"I think it's okay. It's a life milestone that you want to share and celebrate with friends. Ang ayoko lang is 'yong reaction ng tao. I want people to celebrate [a] college diploma the same way they do engagements." Krizelle, Single

'[I think] using three to five photos [is okay], and not an entire album documenting how he popped the question. Share a discreet shot of the ring, and refrain from mentioning aka boasting about ring brand, karat size, etc. It's better to tell your loved ones in person, or at least let them know the good news via phone call, email or messenger if they are not easily within reach. Letting them find out along with everybody else is kinda disrespectful and tacky." - Trizha, Single
"[Our engagement announcement] was confusing and only those that really know us understood. Looking back, parang okay na din y'un. At least those that really matter understood and was able to enjoy the moment with us. And good din na [we] waited for I think a month before we made the grand reveal. Nadama muna namin ang pagiging engaged before we got bombarded with all the wedding questions. One thing lang talaga siguro, don't overshare, like don't post about your wedding pegs. 'Di naman lahat ng tao sa timeline mo may pakialam sa wedding announcements and preps ninyo." - Grace, Engaged
"I'm okay with a solo post of the ring or maybe the couple together. What I find annoying is when one of them uploads a pic about the 'documentation' one by one—that it dominates my news feed." - Jose, In a relationship
"For me, it's your call. Any way of doing it basta hindi kayo nakahubad ok s'akin. (laughs) - Kathleen, Married
"It really depends on the couple. If they're really ecstatic about it, then by all means post a cheesy post about your engagement. But please spare us from EVERY DETAIL of that evening. On second thought, the 'hide' button is there so..." - Aerin, In a relationship
