Hudson Valley Weddings – 6 Creative Ways to Announce YOUR Engagement!

Hudson Valley Weddings – 6 Creative Ways to Announce Your Engagement

Getting engaged is an exciting time! Before you even start thinking how to plan a perfect Hudson Valley wedding, you must come up with a way to announce your engagement. There are plenty of fun and sweet ways to do it and here are six creative ideas for announcing your engagement in style.

1. Take a Formulaic Photo

A very simple yet sweet way to go about the announcement is naturally by sending out a photo to everyone. But instead of taking a traditional engagement photo go with a formulaic way of telling you two become a couple.

For instance, use props to add ‘a plus’ and ‘equals’ signs to your photo. You could also add cute heart props or play word games with your names and the wedding date. This is a fun way to add a bit more creativity to the engagement photo.

2. Show it With a Thumbprint Announcement

Another idea is to make a cute card by using both of your thumbprints. This is a very affordable DIY idea and you won’t need to spend a lot of time or money creating it. And being affordable and easy to make doesn’t mean that it isn’t a lovely idea. 

Thumbprint announcement is a light-hearted way to announce your engagement and it’s a great-relaxed way to let your loved ones know. You could also take the idea further and print both your handprints into the card.

3. Reveal it Through a Photo Story

You can also get creative and reveal your love story with a photo collage. If you have photos from the first day you met, then these naturally make a great addition. You can then just add small text on top of the photos to narrate the story and ultimately to reveal you two are now engaged. 

If you don’t have old photos, then you can recreate the big milestones along your journey as a couple. Alternatively, you can add some fun by taking goofy photos altogether.

4. Say it in a Song

If you two are good singers or play a musical instrument, then why not make your own engagement song? You don’t need to compose a whole new song if you don’t want to either. Just use a tune from an existing song and write your own lyrics to the melody.

Hudson Valley’s DJs who are experienced in weddings can even help you out. On top of creating an engagement song, you can continue the theme at your wedding later if you want!

5. Create a Wedding Website

In today’s world of technology, all the major events in our lives are often told online as well. If you want, you could create a wedding website to announce your engagement as well as keep updating your friends and family about the upcoming wedding later on. 

Once you’ve created the website, you can just e-mail the link to your friends and family. In order to add a bit of secrecy and fun surprises, you could also just send a note by mail with the website address.

6. Shoot a Short Film

Naturally, you could also shoot a short film to announce the engagement. You can either make it a sweet film, a suspense film or even just a laugh out loud comedy film to let your loved ones know about the engagement.

There are tons out there to inspire you, but this one is one of my top 5 favorites:
