Like it or not, we live in a time where you may well hear your childhood vicar announce “please refrain from taking photographs and posting on social media during the ceremony”. It’s not typically in their job description, but that is just one of the ways that couples are trying to take back control of social media on their wedding day.
As we have mentioned before, Social Media has really changed the face of weddings. Today’s generation announce their engagements on Facebook, get inspired by Pinterest and get involved with discussions on Twitter. In fact, Wednesdays are no longer just that; they are #WeddingWednesdays!
With the rise in use of social media and the mere fact that nearly everyone who know now owns a smartphone…it is not surprising that weddings have been changed by digitization. Cameras have been replaced by iPhones, everyone knows what you’re up to, a phone call is a novelty and the internet plays a huge role in your life. So how has all of this changed the face of weddings?
