Exciting news! We have a really fun and functional giveaway this month: a 6 month Skype voucher that allows the winner and up to 9 of her friends to communicate via video chat at the same time!! The folks at Skype are also including a FREETALK Buddy Cam, which plugs into your USB drive for instant video chat!
Think of all the fun things you can do and plan via live video chat with 9 of your gal pals. You can easily overcome the long-distance dilemma of working with a destination wedding coordinator or the bridal party planning with any of your bridesmaids who are out of state. Another fun idea is to plan a virtual happy hour with all of the friends that live too far away to regularly meet up.
With help from the ever-simple Skype, the Bride-to-be will forget about the knots in her stomach and get excited to tie the real one. Group video calling is part of Skype’s new premium subscription ($8.99/month), but only one person on the call has to pay for it (up to 10 people can be on one Skype video call at once).
Brides Can Use Skype to:
- Try on her dress for the webcam with her bridesmaids watching from their own homes
- Check out how her bridesmaids look in their frocks
- Check in with her far-flung wedding planner
- Get mom’s opinion on whether those flowers are tasteful or just tacky.
- The bridal party can even get together via group video chat to plan the bachelorette party!
Newlyweds Can Use Skype to:
- Show off their new house or apartment to out-of-town friends and family
- Get instant input on furniture and decorating decisions
- Stay connected with their long distance loved ones
- Introduce new members of the family…be they pets or babies!!!
