Weddings And Technology: A Match Made In Heaven

Technology has an uncanny ability to transform our lives in ways that we never expected. Who would have thought that we'd all be glued to small, handheld computer screens checking status updates twenty years ago?

But the world of tech isn't just affecting our work and social lives; it's also having an outsized impact on weddings too. The modern wedding just wouldn't be complete without the use of tech.
Technologies make the whole process so much easier. Here's why weddings and tech are a match made in heaven.

Say Goodbye To Paper Cuts
Preparing wedding invitations used to be an unbelievably drawn out process. You had not only to find somebody to print out all the cards, but you also had to deliver them by hand to the post office, and pay a small fortune for the privilege.

Now, though, there's an app for that. All of a sudden the vast machinery of the postal service is redundant: with a simple click of a button, you can import your contact list, filter the people invited to your wedding and click "send." Then all that's left to do is wait for the RSVP - no more dealing with lost replies in the post.

Stop Searching For Wedding Entertainment
Finding a great entertainer was a challenge in the past. Most couples relied on local ads or the recommendations of their friends. But today, it's easier than ever. This awesome website, for instance, categorises entertainment options by type, including for weddings. These platforms let you browse your options, read reviews, and then pay for the band you want online. It's about as easy as using Airbnb.

Collect Wedding Day Photos With An App
Official photographs are great, but there will be plenty of other people taking pictures at your wedding, and you might want to share them to remember your day or capture moments that the chief photographer couldn't.

Instead of going to the print shop to have the photos developed, you can now get wedding photo sharing apps on your phone that allow you to share pictures immediately with other guests.

Stream Your Wedding Day On Live Social Media
Live social media is still in its infancy. But that doesn't mean that you can't use it to great effect. Weddings are the perfect place to live stream events and enable people who can't make it join in with the fun.

Many social media services allow you to live stream events, including Facebook, Instagram and Periscope. If you decide to live stream, you can often set up private groups, inviting people as you see fit.

Put USB Adaptors In Your Flower Arrangements
Okay, this ones a little out there, but it's useful nonetheless: concealing USB port adapters in your flower arrangements. Modern guests want to be able to charge their phones, but you don't want wires ruining your wedding decorations. By concealing your charging stations within your flower arrangements (or behind them), you can get the best of both worlds: a beautiful table setting that is practical too.

So, how will you use tech at your wedding?
