When it comes to guests with phones or cameras during ceremonies, we have pretty much seen it all. From the guest who watches the entire ceremony through their camera lens, to the best man who Snapchats literally everything, people are pretty attached to their devices. While some couples are totally okay with it, it doesn’t sit so well with everyone. After all, you have found the perfect photographer and you don’t want arms and phones obstructing the awesome photos they’ll be taking! So how do you ask your guests to keep their hands free of phones and cameras and focus on you during the ceremony? Easy!
By now we have all seen the video by the brilliant person who decided to attach a GoPro to a bottle of Fireball and pass it around their wedding. It’s fun, it’s different, it’s perfect! In a world full of selfie sticks and hashtags, incorporating technology into weddings in some way or another has become a necessity. It’s easy to do and the results are incredible!
Here’s a few ways that we here at BTS love!
Early last week, BizBash, a pioneer company in our event industry, released a super informative blog which was titled 25 Event Pros You Should Be Following on Instagram. Just like the title says, they listed their opinion for the 25 most influential Instagram accounts in the event industry. As wedding planners, we were so excited to read more. We thought this was so informative and decided we wanted to share our very own list of Instagram inspirations with all of you 🙂 These are the masterminds behind some really trend setting and unique work that we look forward to seeing every day!
As you may know, we are a bit social media obsessed. Since we are Scottsdale based wedding planners, located in one of the hottest states in the country (Arizona), our summer months really slow down when it comes to wedding planning. There aren’t too many people who want to get married in 110 degree weather. During this time, we work on getting our Fall weddings into shape, spring cleaning the office, and admiring the rest of the country’s amazing weddings and wedding photography through Instagram.
Now we all know social media has a huge influence over all of society and tons of people are tuning in throughout the day to catch up on news, post, check their “likes”, etc… but we still have a lot of brides who tell us they do not use social media to help plan/design their wedding. We get a lot of feedback from our brides who say they can not find their style, they get overwhelmed, or they like everything and end up having too many different styles incorporated into their design. If you are feeling like this, just know, you are not alone.
