Getting married is a really big milestone in your life, and planning the wedding is an exciting time! In this day and age, it’s almost impossible to not have technology influence our daily decisions, and that includes a wedding. Your guests will appreciate your wedding being tech-friendly, and it makes the whole day feel modern and fun. If you’re planning your wedding, implement technology throughout your venue where you can for an awesome event. Try some of these high-tech wedding ideas at your wedding this summer!
Live-stream your wedding: Unfortunately, not everyone on your guest list will be able to make it to your wedding. Maybe your location was too far of a travel for some of your family and friends and they couldn’t afford airfare. Or maybe some of your elderly guests couldn’t make the trip. To make sure they can still be a part of your special day, have a live-stream of your wedding during the ceremony and reception so that those who couldn’t make it can still see the magic of your marriage!
Create a personalized Snapchat filter: Everything is better with a filter, right? You may go to events and there’s an option to have a filter on social media that’s tailored for the day that everyone can interact with. Give your wedding a techy spin by customizing your own Snapchat filter for your big day that will have all of your guests wanting to share every moment. The best part is the next morning in the after-wedding blues, you and your new spouse can watch back everyone’s snaps to reminisce on how fun the day was!
Take your wedding video to the next level:
Having a videographer create a video from your wedding day is a must-have so that you’re able to look back on all the amazing memories years from now, and it’s totally worth the splurge! A wedding video doesn’t have to just be done by having a regular camera capture the action. Have a GoPro attached to a long selfie stick for your guests to pass around and be up close and personal in your video. Or hire a videographer who has a drone to get out-of-this-world shots! Even though all of the bells and whistles of a videographer come with a hefty price tag, you’ll be so glad you spent the money on it. A wedding loan with Earnest is a great low-interest option for your budget when you’re dealing with the growing expenses of your wedding day.
Online registry: Wedding registries aren’t like when your parents got married, and they don’t have to be limited to elegant china and linens. With more partners moving in together before marriage nowadays, most engaged couples have a lot of what they already need in their apartments or houses before their wedding day. With an online registry on Zola, lovebirds can register for just about anything for their wedding, including funds and experiences for their honeymoon.
Charging stations: Your guests are going to be sharing your wedding like crazy on Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook! All of that social engagement is going to drain their phone batteries before you even cut the cake! Set up charging stations throughout the venue so that your guests can keep on snapping pics and instagramming all night long. Your guests will be thankful that you saved them from an endless search for a stray outlet, which oftentimes results in having to leave the phone unattended or kneeling awkwardly on the floor waiting for a full charge.
Digital Guestbook: How many times have you been to a wedding and half of the guests skip over signing the guest book? While there are plenty of fresh and unique ideas when it comes to guest books, you can step it up with a digital guestbook that is sure to wow your guests.
A digital guestbook allows for an interactive experience everyone will be talking about, and you can get the book sent to your door afterward to look back on it. This idea is a high-tech twist from what your family and friends are used to seeing, so it’s sure to be a hit!
