Announcing an engagement is a big step in any couple's love story.

In the modern day, engagement announcements come in many forms,with many taking to Facebook to share their happy news. Instead of simply leaving a congratulations comment on social media, take it one step further, and congratulate the love birds on their engagement with a greetings card. 

If you're not confident with words, don't worry. Here at Clintons, we're committed to helping you translate your thoughts into personalised messages that you can send to your loved ones.

The messages you share with close and friends and family will often be very different to those you would send a colleague or neighbour. 

Here are some message ideas perfect for family and colleagues alike, after they break the happy news:

  1. Congrats! This is an excellent step into your happily ever after. 
  2. Congratulations on the BIG news! I am so happy for both of you.
  3. Congratulations on your engagement! You both deserve a lifetime of love and happiness.
