Tell ’em With Pictures
Use a favorite photo of the two of you or schedule an engagement photo session with a photographer. Then turn those snapshots into a postcard via Snapfish.com, Flickr.com, Shutterfly.com, or any other online photo service. Pre-print an engagement announcement -- just a quick “Yay! We’re Engaged!” works fine -- and all you’ll have to do is address, stamp, and mail to spread the good news far and wide.
Send a Video Ecard
Chances are you’re goofy-happy about the engagement, so why not share the feeling with others in the most hilarious of ways? Check out the new video ecards from TheKnot.com: You and your fiance create a personalized engagement announcement that will get big laughs. Pick a theme (choose a ballroom, beach, or barnyard) with music to match, and upload your favorite photos of each other. Your smiling heads will be connected to kooky dancing bodies as you star in a musical production guaranteed to get a laugh -- the best part? It arrives to everyone’s inbox with a simple click of the send button. Check it out!
Create a Wedding Website
Almost every couple has one these days, but making a personalized website early, with your full how-(s)he-popped-the-question story (and photos!), is an intimate way to share the details of your engagement. Just email the link to friends and family with a suggestive “Guess what?” subject line and wait for the congratulations to start rolling in. Plus, you’ll be ahead of the wedding-planning game; your site will serve as the central location for updating your family and friends on the details of the big day. Create your site here!
Tell Virtually Everyone
Through Twitter or Facebook, you can instantly spread the word to all of your close and extended networks with a few simple keystrokes! You’ll love the retweet love and comments that pour in as the online world receives your happy news. Remember to call or individually email the people closest to you so that you can spill the details in the good, old-fashioned way!
Say It Sweetly
If you want a “big reveal” for friends and family, design and print up a custom candy wrapper at CustomCandyBars.com and then dish out the news after a group dinner. Not only will the bars be a tasty dessert, they’ll be a great way to start off your engagement on a sweet note.
