Technology and Weddings: Using Technology To Make Your Big Day Extra Special

Years ago, the only people who got to experience a couple’s exchange of vows were the guests who were present. If the father of the bride or the mother of the groom couldn’t make it to the wedding for any reason, they missed the entire event. And this was often heartbreaking for everyone involved.

However, after the internet and social media platforms sprang up, these absences were quickly remedied. While most couples still prefer having all their loved ones physically present on their wedding day, technology created other ways to include absent loved ones and enhance the entire wedding experience!

So if you’re planning a wedding soon and want to include as many people as possible, here are some amazing tools you should be using.

Zoom

Is your best friend or mother-in-law going to be absent from your wedding due to an illness or a sudden change in plans? Well, don’t fret. They don’t have to miss your wedding completely. With Zoom they can also be present for your wedding day. All you need to do is download the application, connect to them on your iPad, and save them a front row seat for a clear view!

Picture upload

Uploading pictures to your social media accounts is another great way to involve your friends in your wedding experience. When you upload your wedding pictures, even your high-school and college friends can learn about your wedding and leave congratulatory comments. So ask for virtual copies of your wedding photos and upload them to platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter!

Hashtags

One recent wedding trend you also want to take advantage of is hashtags. This trend is super amazing as it connects everyone who attends your wedding on social media. It also makes it easier for people who couldn’t make it to catch glimpses of your wedding experience!

Create a hashtag that is a combination of you and your spouse’s name (e.g. Tamina + Ryan = #TAMRYAN2020) and share it with your guests. This hashtag will be used when pictures from your wedding are uploaded to create a link between all the posts! If you’re lucky, your hashtag might just trend on social media and get lots of attention.

Videos

While creating wedding videos has been a wedding tradition for decades, recent technology has greatly improved video quality and editing. A videographer can skillfully compile the highlights of your wedding day to create a short and meaningful video for your social media. Once uploaded to your online accounts, your friends and followers can become a part of your wedding experience.

Also, these uploaded videos may eventually outlast your hardcopy CDs or videos saved to your flash drive. This makes them precious!

Conclusion

With all of these digital applications and tools, you can enhance your wedding experience by sharing it with thousands of people. And the best part? You don’t even have to include them in your budget!
