Getting engaged is quite possibly one of the most exciting times in your life — make sure you'll always remember the multitude of emotions you felt during the proposal with a beautiful engagement ring selfie that captures the sparkle of your favorite new accessory (and the excitement of knowing you'll be spending forever with the one you love!). Take inspiration from these brides-to-be to debut your diamond ring in style, whether it be with a Starbucks cup, a killer manicure, or in front of a beachy backdrop. Whatever you do, don't forget to relish this moment to show off your brand new sparkler.
If you're a city-dweller, make the most out of the hustle and bustle by snapping a pic of your favorite coffee cup in hand (complete with an adorable scribbled note on top, of course) in front of the taxi you're about to jet off in. Fiancés are busy people, after all!
Highlight your Prince Charming in a subtly blurry background with a focus on your shining new rock. That way, you'll always be able to look back and see how overjoyed he was that you said yes. Who could blame him?
For a more bohemian vibe, use interesting angles to show off that sparkling stunner. Take this bride's lead and turn your camera toward the sky while you relax in the warm sun. Who knew it could be so effortless to look this glam?
One of the more exciting, albeit stressful, things about being engaged is wedding planning. So as the BRIDES issues pile up on your coffee table, use the moment to showcase all of the fun things you'll be dreaming up for your wedding while also adding some bling into the pic.
Show the bond you have with your soon-to-be-husband by taking a photo of the two of you interlacing fingers after he pops the question. It doesn't get much sweeter than this!
