Technology and Weddings
Taking your big day into the future!
It’s a major understatement to say that technology is a big part of our lives. From bracelets that track our heart rate to phones that…well…do just about anything, it’s hard to remember a time before these electronic conveniences. When it comes to weddings, though, technology is still finding its proper place. Some weddings go completely unplugged, asking their guests to stow their cameras and phones. Others go all out and incorporate technology in many aspects of their big day. Most people, though, fall somewhere in the middle and want to embrace technology, but not let it overtake their wedding. If you’re one of those people, here are some fun, unique ways to pop some technology into your big day:
Photography – Do your research and you may just find a photographer in your area that incorporates drones into their routine. Yes, drones. They’re getting more and more commonplace, and many photographers find them to be the perfect second shooter! They can get angles and images that the average photographer can’t, and will ensure that you get some stunning, unique shots!
Cake – Credit Disney Weddings for this amazing, futuristic idea: images/videos projected onto your cake! Forget the frosting flowers of the past, and imagine your confection decorated with a home video of you and your sweetie. Cue the oohs and ahhs from your guests! Photos, videos, animations…the possibilities are endless!
Video – While a professional videographer can never be replaced, you can use technology to get some amazing, candid video of your big day. How about a GoPro camera hidden in your bouquet? Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a video showing your perspective coming down the aisle?! Or consider assigning a member of your bridal party to Periscope duty and help those that can’t be with you to see your wedding in real time.
Dress – Of course we have to address the mix of technology and gowns! One of our fabulous bridal designers, Theia, has paved the way to the future with their custom gown for Carrie Underwood that featured a digital light show! While it may be awhile before a bride is ready to go that far, it’s amazing to think about how far fashion has come! If you want to pop some technology into your look in a more subtle way, how about a 3D printed headpiece? Chic, modern and sure to wow!
