Here are 5 great ways for using tech in your wedding.
This one you are definitely going to want to do. Everyone is going to have questions about your wedding. Face it, you have a million details you would love to share — from your love story to your wedding registry. A quick search will pull up tons of options from free to pricey depending on how much work you want to put in and your skill level. You can include the URL on your save the date cards.
Snapchat & Instagram
Oh, the photos! You know all your friends are going to be snapping away so you are going to want a way to see them all. You will want to create a fun, unique hashtag for your wedding. Then you need to spread the word either through signage at your wedding reception or on cards at the guest tables.
Once you have done that you may as well go ahead and create a custom Geofilter for Snapchat. It’s really easy to do. It will cost a little but so worth it. Here is a link to how to create your own Geofilter.
Go-Pros aren’t just for extreme sports! You can have your florist embed one in your wedding bouquet for a video of your perspective of the walk down the aisle. The current trend of big, lush bouquets makes hiding them easier than ever. Once you hand off the bouquet to your Maid of Honor she can get an up close view of the ceremony.
When you go to the reception, put the bouquet in a vase on the Sweetheart table to capture the reception exactly how you saw it on your wedding day.
With today’s busy, global community there is a good chance not everyone will be able to attend your wedding. If you have family and friends spread around the globe you can live stream all or parts of your wedding. The ceremony, introductions, toast and first dance are some highlight that you can share. Either assign a friend to do it with their tablet or check with your videographer to see if they offer any options for live streaming.
If you are having an outdoor wedding, you can get some great B-roll shots for your wedding video.
There are a few caveats.
They can be really loud so you don’t want to film your whole ceremony.
Check with your venue about restrictions they may have.
Remember that all drones have to be registered and anyone flying one for a commercial business (like your videographer) must be licensed.
It’s 2017 and you use tech every day. These are just a few of the many ways today’s couples are including it in the celebration of their wedding. What tech are you going to use?
