Eco Wed Series: Paper-free Engagement Announcements

Welcome to the first post of the Eco Wedding Series on The Green Girls, the ultimate eco wedding resource to get “conscious couples” started on the right green foot!

(TIP:  Get this entire series delivered to your email by downloading The Green Girls RSS feed)

November and December are the biggest months for engagements, so if you have recently said “Will you?” or “Yes, I will”, this post is
for you.  Now that you just ‘put a ring on it’, you might be considering all your options for announcing your big news. Lucky for you, web 2.0 is a thoroughly fun way to spread the word while sparing a few trees.

My absolute FAVE new trend for announcing engagements is VIDEO.  If you want to be a hit with your friends and family and truly get their attention in the most entertaining way, try an on screen announcement and then blast that baby off to everyone you know via email, Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, Twitter and any other social app you’re using these days.  If you don’t already have a videocam, consider picking up a flip cam for under $200.  Not only is it a low cost, paper-reducing way to spread your message, your new camera will come in super handy in capturing all the new memories you’ll be building with your life partner.

HOW DO YOU PULL IT OFF?  Check out this adorable engagement announcement done by my good friend Corey.  And if you’re still unsure about how to go about making your own video, feel free to give him a shout…he’ll be happy to help you produce your own!  His contact info is at the end of the video.
