Best Ways to Announce You’re Engaged Over the Holidays

Congratulations on your engagement and happy holidays!

This time of year we are thrilled to see our social media feeds filled with all the “I Said Yes!!” photos, each one so special and filled with love. Here at Uptown we came up with the BEST ways to make your engagement announcement stand out this holiday season. We hope our ideas will inspire you to be creative and have fun during this special time!

Holiday Engagement Photo Ideas



Cuddle up with a cozy blanket in the pine trees- a classic and romantic way to share the big news with all of your loved ones! Find a nice neighborhood trail and your favorite blanket and you are set!



While you’re surrounded by the pine trees, take that sparkly ring off (just for a second!!) and lay it on one of the many pine cones or even mistletoe at your feet. The contrast of the natural with the bling is a sure way to catch your family’s eye.



This fabulous photo opportunity is also a great way to treat your new fiancee to a picnic in the woods! Grab some “His and Hers” coffee mugs and a cozy blanket, and have a relaxing coffee picnic in the woods. Or, do like this couple did and head on over to your local Christmas tree farm!

It doesn’t get cuter or sweeter than mistletoe. We love how adorable this shot can be and it really is such a treat to share with your friends! You may have to practice being picked up a few times though. 😉


This one is our favorite! Truly a unique, punny and precious idea! DIY or buy “Merry Me” ornaments and create a sweet moment between you and your fiancee by posing with this cute decor! Even better, hang it on your tree after the photos for a keepsake to remember the special holiday season that you got engaged!
