Whether it’s setting up a wedding website or a wedding hashtag, adding technology to your wedding is a useful way to streamline everything from RSVPs to selfies shot by your guests. Here, 5 easy ways to go digital when you say “I do.”
Set up a wedding website. For a nominal fee, sites like WordPress or Squarespace make it easy to create your own website with all the pertinent details about your big day (including a way to digitally RSVP!). And welcome to the modern world: Appy Couple is a new website that creates an app version of your site based off the desktop design of your wedding app so guests can instant message and virtually connect before the wedding.
Send virtual invitations. Nowadays, we have more email addresses than mailing addresses on hand. Virtual invitations—sent from sites like Paperless Post—are a smart way to organize events surrounding your big day, like the rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch. And, if you’re on a budget, there are plenty of gorgeous options for going digital with your save the dates and invitations, too.
Set up a hashtag. It’s the best way to keep track of all the pics and videos your guests will snap. If you’re struggling to come up with what it should be, don’t fret — there are wedding hashtag generators that you can use to put together the perfect combo of the bride and groom’s name.
Ask about drone footage. You’d be surprised — a lot of videographers provide this service. It’s a super cool way to get a bird’s eye view of all your guests sipping cocktails on the front lawn of your venue before dinner or you walking down the aisle in your dress.
Stream your wedding. For guests that live to far to make the trip, it’s super easy to set up streaming services (like Skype or Periscope or FaceTime) so they don’t miss the moment you and your sweetie say “I do.” Ask your planner for help coordinating or enlist a trusty aunt with a steady hand to hold the computer camera up.
