Technology plays a major role in our day-to-day lives and, in most cases, makes our lives easier. With the abundance of tools available at our fingertips, it comes as no surprise that the wedding industry has embraced the innovation that comes with incorporating technology into the planning process. Online registries and wedding websites are just a few of the ways that technology has been used in the past for wedding planning purposes, however in recent years, a new crop of practical (and fun!) virtual wedding tools have debuted. The best part? Most of these are tailored to be used throughout the entire planning process and are not just limited to the actual wedding day.
#WeddingHashtags: Custom hashtags have been around for a while, however that does not make them any less fun! The beauty of hashtags is that they can be used anytime, by anyone. Want to look back on the best day ever once the glitter settles? All you have to do is visit your hashtag to view all of the pictures shared from your big day!
Your wedding hashtag can be shared ahead of time via your wedding website. Some sites, like The Knot, even offer the option to sync all snaps featuring your hashtag to your actual site. Need help choosing the perfect hashtag? Check out an online hashtag generator like this one.
Snapchat Geofilters: We've all seen (and used) the location filters that Snapchat offers, but did you know that you can create a custom one for your wedding day? They're available for bachelorette parties and bridal showers too! The design options are endless and you'd be hard-pressed to find one that doesn't perfectly coordinate with your design. The cost of implementing a custom geofilter is minimal and with this this offer from The Knot, you can save 15% off of Snapchat's fee AND rock a personalized geofilter that matches your wedding website.
Custom Snapchat Stories: Here comes Snapchat with another wedding win! One of their newest features allows a user to create a custom story that is specific to a certain location. All you have to do is name the story, set the location, and invite your friends. Simple and fun! Like other Snapchat stories, they are only live for 24 hours, however you have the option to download the entire story to view whenever and wherever.
