With social media is taking over the world, we want to capture every moment it and share it with our circle of friends, family or even fans – especially the special moments of life. Social media is creeping levels of our lives so of course we see it making its way into weddings with phones and hashtags everywhere!
Several couples are having none of it and choosing to ask guest to disconnect and just enjoy the moment. And while I 100% agree your guests should be present, I don’t think it is necessary to collect everyone’s phones at the door.
We had a lot of people using our hashtag the day of our wedding but it was something quick – we created an atmosphere where people truly wanted to party and celebrate with us too – not just stay on their phones.
Want proof? The reception ended at 4:00 am! *mic drop*
So hashtag away – because we know you want to!
Here are reasons we loved our hashtag and recommend a connected wedding.
- We instantly saw our wedding! Hashtags are a wonderful thing! They are not only gaining popularity but are a playfully add to your day of stationery and let you reflect on your wedding day instantly. Everything seemed to be happening so fast it reassured us that it wasn’t just a dream.
- Raw vs Professional. A big concern always here is “Well we hired a photographer or videographer.” Yes and I will say no one will be able to capture what professional can. Our wedding photos are pieces of art and our video looks like a high end Hollywood movie but your friends and family will be able to capture something different. It’s a bit more raw to say the least. For example – at the end of the night we had a dance off, and let’s just say my inner Beyonce came out in full Sasha Fierce style – this was at the end of the night though when it was just friends and family – no professionals so I loved watching it go down on Instagram and Snapchat (mainly because I wanted to see myself trump my new hubby in a dance off – who doesn’t)!
- You get to see your event in the eyes of your guests! And what’s more special than that?
PS: Don’t forget to hashtag #VibranceWedding – because you know you’re a #VibranceBride / #VibranceGroom 😉
