He proposed. She said “Yes.” Now what?
These days, with the power of technology and social media, couples are getting more and more creative with announcing their engagement. And with the limitless possibilities of video, announcing and sharing important news has become as easy as posting on Facebook or burning a DVD. An engagement video, also called a couple video, is a great way to personalize your engagement announcement in a way that you, and your family and friends, will definitely remember. So what exactly is an engagement video?
An engagement video is usually a short 3-5 minute video featuring the newly engaged couple interacting in a few different locations. Engagement videos can be personalized in many ways, such as with the use of props—a special memento or favorite photo perhaps, or a fun pop of color, like a bright balloon or colorful bouquet. Some couples like to incorporate a pet, a favorite activity or sport, or a meaningful location. All of these customizations are sure to make your engagement video a unique reflection of your personalities and at the same time, serve as a fun and treasured reminder of this important milestone.

Fun tip: Include a save the date message on your engagement video and mail out custom designed DVDs in lieu of a traditional save the date. Or use this same idea for a wedding invitation. Instead of having it posted on their refrigerator or bulletin board, your invitation DVD will be on repeat in your family and friends’ DVD players!
