With the new trends of technology, there is also a trend which is the opposite of an “unplugged” wedding. This is called a “supercharged” wedding.
At a “supercharged” wedding, not only are electronic devices allowed, but they are also encouraged. You will find cameras, tablets, phones and more. Guests will likely be taking pictures and updating statuses on social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter. This can be a neat way to keep everyone updated and share pieces of the wedding from multiple perspectives, not just from the view of the photographer and videographer.
If this style of wedding interests you, do not forget to mention it on your wedding website and invitations. A “supercharged” wedding should be just that, a wedding with the use of lots of technology.
Have you heard about the wedding in which the bride used Google Glass to capture moments of her wedding from her point of view? With the use of this technology, you can now see what a bride sees as she walks down the aisle. Check it out.
In current times, phones and other electronic devices are used daily. Texting, taking pictures, and posting statuses on Facebook are just a few ways our days are spent. While social networking websites make it easier to communicate with others, this can also take time away from enjoying the company of friends and family.
Would you be comfortable with your attendees using their phones during your wedding ceremony? How would you feel if someone jumped up from their seat to take a picture and blocked the view for others? This can be distracting.Your wedding day is focused on you and your significant other so do not be afraid to restrict the use of electronic devices if that is what you request. This is a new trend known as an “unplugged wedding.”
If this type of wedding interests you, I would suggest placing a basket where your attendees will enter at the ceremony venue so they can drop off their phones and other devices. However, when the ceremony is over, let the picture taking commence. I am sure your friends and family will want pictures to remember this celebration. To sum up, there is a time for everything.
