Geek-Chic Wedding IdeasSay I do!--or at least, I might--to these seven tech trends for your wedding.

1. I Thee Tweet
Getting down on one knee is just so 2007! More and more prospective fiancés are taking to Twitter to pop the question, like one @maxkiesler, the man behind the world's first public proposal tweet: "To @emilychang--After fifteen years of blissful happiness I would like to ask for your hand in marriage?" (@emilychang tweeted back yes!).

2. Wedding Trailer
Skip staid save-the-date mailers and make your own wedding trailer. Post your vid online and ready your Oscar, er, wedding speech.

3. The Worldwide Wed
Create a "wedsite" as your central hub and to streamline communication with guests. Include Evites and RSVPs, maps, photos (but edit those pics from bachelor/bachelorette parties!), bride/groom blogs, Twitter feeds, links to Facebook page(s), YouTube vids of the proposal, suggestions for out-of-town guests and links to your gift registry.

4. Gadget Gifts

Include electronics, like flatscreen TVs, BluRays, digital video recorders, digital photo frames, cameras and/or webcams, on your registry. Or consider a separate registry at a national electronics retailer.

5. Nuptial Playlist
For a memorable favor that guests might actually keep, create a playlist of songs from your reception. Burn onto a CD and include a liner with a photo of you and your mate.

6. Do the Cam-cam
Set up a webcam during speeches so loved ones from around the globe can deliver live toasts and well wishes.

7. iPad Pics
Some photographers now offer digital photo packages--including an iPad loaded with all your wedding day snaps! These "iWedding albums" beautifully display your high-res photos and they make it a cinch to post that all-important post-wedding profile pic on Facebook. Bonus: Bored grooms get their gadget fix!
