Weddings today are evolving and becoming more technological. There is no longer the need to buy disposable cameras for your guests tables at your wedding. Instagram is the new disposable camera. Now you can invite guests to hashtag their photos that they take at your wedding with a unique hashtag you decide on. You can make QR codes, e-vite your save the date or even your wedding invitations. However, some people opt to keep things traditional. They want their friends and family to have an invitation as a keepsake. Here are some ideas on how to incorporate technology into your wedding or ways to discourage technology. There is no right or wrong when it comes to your wedding but it is best to inform your guests of your wishes. If you do not wish to have Facebook and Instgram feed of your wedding let your tech obsessed guests know that you want to be the first to post about your day.
If you are pro Instagram you should create a Hashtag for your wedding day! Always check out the hashtag first to see if it is available. Maybe even scoop it out and place it on the save the date card and add it to your Instagram feed. Make sure you post it at the wedding reception for your guests to see!

Some couples want their guests to just focus on the moment and have all the photos taken by a photographer. If that is what you desire, make it known to your guests by having a sign before they walk in. Then there will be no competition of the hired photographer. This will be helpful for a nervous bride or groom that doesn’t want to be thinking about paparazzi!
If you really don’t want phones present at your special day, make it known. You can request that everyone either leave their phones in the car or set them aside for the night. Another option is to ask if they would silence and hid their phones for the evening, as if they were seeing a movie at the movie theater. If your wish is to be respected asking nicely and being flexible is the best policy. If people want to put their phones in a basket so they won’t be tempted great. But if they want to keep them tucked away in their purse or pocket that works too!
