We live in a time when new technology seems to be introduced every day, so why not take advantage of it for your wedding? There are plenty of ways you can use technology to make your big day run a little more smoothly or just to add an extra layer of fun!
Livestream the ceremony
If you have friends or relatives who live in faraway places or are unable to travel, live-streaming can be the perfect way to include everyone in your nuptials. Setting up a password-protected livestream link on your wedding website or YouTube is a simple process and a great way to give distant loved ones the chance to feel a part of your wedding.
Make use of a hashtag
Let’s face it: If you don’t have a wedding hashtag these days, is your wedding even real? We’re just kidding, but hashtags are actually really useful. A unique hashtag can allow you to see all of your guests’ photos from your day, and you can even set up a way to download them all to a Dropbox folder to include in any future wedding photo albums.
Let a drone fly
If you’re looking for some truly breathtaking aerial views of your wedding, drones and small GoPro cameras offer a way to capture large-scale views of the big day. Many videographers now incorporate drones into their films to add an extra layer of detail. Bonus: Drone footage can truly make your wedding day feel like a movie.
Be extra with your photo booth
A few props and a camera on a tripod are no longer an acceptable wedding photo booth. Nowadays, you have the option of creating GIFs by capturing bursts of photos and stitching them together into animated video loops. There are even flip book photo booths that bind images together into a mini-book for guests. Many photo booth companies offer digital walls and backdrops to truly customize your images and give your guests plenty of fun options.
Build an online wish list
Your wedding registry doesn’t have to be limited to department stores. Instead, you can build an Amazon registry or create another online registry that allows you to include items from multiple stores and truly pick the things you want most for your new life together. You can even create a honeymoon fund to allow people to help contribute to your honeymoon, instead of purchasing home items you may not need.
