“You may now update your Facebook status”

You may not be surprised to hear this at a wedding nowadays. With social media becoming more and more a part of our lives, more and more couples are incorporating a “status update” into their vows.
Slightly Completely irreverent, I personally think it is hilarious. I wouldn’t necessarily be cool with it for a church wedding, but why not tell all your friends, and their friends…after all, a wedding is a public declaration of your love for one another.
What I’m really excited to see is how Twitter will become a part of weddings. I’ve seen Twitter proposals, but I love the idea of a Twitter guest book. By giving your guests a personal hashtag to use with all of their posts, like #BradLovesAshley, encourage phone use (!) and let them tweet the night away! How fun would it be to revisit all of the tweets that were tagged while your guests were witnessing a sweet ceremony, enjoying a delectible dinner, stuffing their faces with cake and booging down on the dance floor. I’m on a mission to make it happen, my digitally-savvy friends!
