Bride-To-Be Shares Photo of Engagement Ring but People Are Distracted by Nails

Share on Facebook

Getting married is, for some people, one of life’s important milestones.

What better way to celebrate the fact that someone wants to share the rest of their life with you than announcing the news with all of your friends and family on social media?

One lady did just that, but the media storm that ensued was nothing to do with celebrating the engagement itself. Join me as I take you on a journey through a series of truly horrible engagement photos.

But before we dive in, let’s take a look at a couple of more general engagement fails.

You never want to be that friend…

Ah, the age-old trick of proposing in a public place because she can’t say no in front of a thousand witnesses… It doesn’t always pay off. We get that the engagement itself might spark a few problems like these ones, but the engagement pictures, well, what could go wrong?

But, now, all of our pics are perfectly choreographed; there are all kinds of things to consider: lighting, background noise, you know… general “aesthetic.”

“We don’t want people to think we live in clutter!”

“You got my bad side!”

With all the effort that goes into taking a regular pic, an engagement shot must take serious planning.

If a photo of your breakfast can tell the world exactly what kind of person you are, the photo that you use to announce your engagement must carry a lot more weight. But we ultimately have control over the pictures that we post, so why are there so many bad engagement photos out there?

But think they’ve milked the whole engagement picture thing a little. I guess if you’ve paid for a photographer for the hour, you might as well get your money’s worth.

Now I know that some people feel awkward about PDA, but this is a whole different kettle of fish. I wonder if he proposed at a sports game…

“Come on, just the one picture – I need to show all the people that I went to school with that someone wants me!”

I feel like this couple’s engagement photo is going to haunt me in my sleep.

“I don’t know why, but it had to start it somewhere.”

“Honestly, he’s just a friend!”

You do realize that those are seeds, right?

She’s certainly getting a mouthful.

These photos are great in that they can repurpose their engagement announcement cards when they announce their divorce. Handy!  

Personally, I kind of think that there’s something cool about the lack of care taken in this particular engagement pic. Whoever the mystery lady is, she certainly doesn’t give a damn.

Well, maybe I wouldn’t go that far… I must admit, the photo does turn my iron stomach, and the amount of gagging that this picture roused in the office today says it all.

There’s something pretty toe-curling about those nails isn’t there?  

In the same way that nails scraping against chalkboards sends a shiver down some people’s spines, or ripping cotton wool in half rubs some people up the wrong way, long, fake nails just don’t sit right with me.

As much as I’m not one to encourage online malice, I can understand why this particular image has turned a few heads.
