Living in a world of ever growing technologies, it only makes sense that they are becoming more prevalent in today’s weddings! There are some far-out-there tech weddings but we found some trends that aren’t too over the top and you can use right away to add a touch of modern to your big day!
This tech feature is great for destination weddings or for any couple who has friends and family that can’t make it to their wedding. Live streaming your wedding ensures your loved ones don’t miss a single moment, and as a bonus while streaming, the event is recorded. This leaves you with the ability to relive the moments over and over again!
Kristin and I were married in New Orleans recently and several of our friends and family couldn’t make the trip. Not to worry! Live streaming our wedding was a great solution to getting married in our dream destination yet still have our ALL our loved ones enjoy it with us!
Drone Photos and Videos
Wedding videos are virtually essential nowadays. Utilizing a drone to capture dramatic aerial footage is a powerful way to get a unique perspective for both video and photo. Until recently, these types of shots weren’t even possible to capture which just makes adding a drone to your wedding even more breathtaking!
Custom Snapchat Geofilter
Since your wedding is going to be insanely fun, you know your guests are going to be on social media all day and night long. Why not create a custom geotag filter to really personalize the media experience? Filters are very affordable, starting around $5 if you create your own following snapchat’s guidelines. Snapchat has existing wedding templates if you don’t have graphic design skills. There are also companies like Filtered Vows that will connect you with designers to create a personalized filter that matches your wedding aesthetic.
Hidden GoPro Footage
Whether you hide it in a bouquet or in the ceremony arch to get a different perspective during the ceremony, GoPros are an extremely versatile and unique camera angle. Another option is instead of placing out polaroid cameras, leave out gopros with selfie sticks so your guests can take videos on the dance floor, or selfies during the reception!
Watches That Track Heart Rates
There are so many watches out there today that have capabilities other than just telling time. For instance, heart rate tracking is typically used for fitness but is an interesting way to look back at your wedding. Match it up with your wedding timeline and you can find all the moments where your heart “skipped a beat!” Additionally, it is no longer required to have to have a “sporty” looking watch to have a heart rate tracker. Designer watches from Michael Koors, Armani, and Nixon, among others have this feature too!
