We usually use the Brides.com twitter feed to promote our latest features or share favorite links with our followers. Other times we ask our tweeps random questions, mostly just to amuse ourselves.

The other day, we asked what were some inappropriate times to announce one's engagement.

Some shared their real life experiences while others offered some hysterical scenarios. We're rounded up our favorite responses below.

OdodoOriginals: right after your BFF announces she's getting a divorce. Happened to a friend if mine #ouch

tobegreetings: At the engagement party of a friend/ family member. Talk about stealing their thunder.

LemonBride: The day after I announce mine

LLLSummer: I knew someone who came to a friends wedding reception and announced she had just gotten engaged a few hours ago.

FreshHubby: While signing divorce papers... or is that the best time?
