You can’t believe your lucky stars. Your special day finally arrived. The man of your dreams dropped to one knee, uttered four words, and your life was changed forever. Will you marry me.
Now onto the fun part—announcing your engagement! Wouldn’t we all be kidding if we didn’t say a ring selfie was top of mind! Do it in fashion. Here are five tips to make your ring selfie perfect.
1. Get your nails did.
A great excuse to treat yourself to a manipedi, ladies! Don’t let chipped nail polish or strange cuticles detract from your new lovely engagement ring. Moisturize for the perfect hands. Bonus points also if you pick a nail polish color that makes your ring pop.
2. Choose the perfect background.
Find a clean background that doesn’t distract from the main focus…your ring! Picture perfect blue skies (rings in the air, ladies!), calm rolling ocean waves (rings in the beach, ladies!), or just about anything nature related work beautifully. If you want to take it a step further, choose a background that is meaningful. Did he propose in a meadow…why not a ring selfie in a grassy, lush field.
3. Get the right lighting.
Make your ring selfie shine with the best lighting. Contrary to what you might think, pick a non-sunny area. Full shade or times close to sunset/sunrise allow for photos that don’t have harsh shadows. Those nasty shadows make your ring look smaller. So find a shady spot.
4. Clean your ring. (Duh 🙂
This goes without saying, but we said it anyways. If you’re anything like us, you’re so excited that your left ring finger is no longer naked, that you’re obsessed with making sure it’s clean. Lol, we even bought a specific ring cleaning brush. If you don’t have one yet, you can always resort to a toothbrush.
5. Include your partner.
Celebrate with your main squeeze. Give him some love in your ring selfie and showcase his excitement in the background.
