San Diego Wedding Trends: Social Media Weddings
Tweets, likes, pins, and +1s have become integrated into everyday life, and the same now goes for one of the happiest and biggest days of your life. More and more couples are choosing to hold social media weddings that incorporate the online world by sharing wedding information on personalized apps and Pinterest boards, and posting photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Having your social media wedding shared via guests’ smartphones and newsfeeds might result in your San Diego wedding celebration being preserved online, but maybe not in the way you had hoped. If you’re considering having your big day go digital, read the below social media wedding pros and cons first.
Social Media Wedding Pros:
- Guests may capture moments and angles missed by a professional photographer.
- Custom wedding hashtags make sharing and searching for event photos easy.
- People who can’t make the event can feel as though they are there in real time by consistently checking feeds or even e-attending via Skype or Facetime.
Social Media Wedding Cons:
- Un-retouched or unflattering photos may be publicly shared without the appropriate consent.
- Once-in-a-lifetime moments like a first-kiss can be missed by the hired photographer due to bright flashes from other cameras or smartphones. Snap-happy guests might also reveal spoilers, like the bride in her dress before the ceremony even starts.
- Guests are not present in the moment, but preoccupied with capturing the perfect picture.
