This applies to our lives on the grand scale as much as it applies to our lives on the personal scale. For your wedding, for example, you can use key new tech from new cloud computing options to new tools like drones, to even using secondary technologies like Google’s constantly upgrading search algorithm to find and use the best for your wedding. Here is a round-up of the key ways you can improve your wedding using new technologies, and why you should incorporate them into your wedding.
Search and Compare Before You Hire
The first benefit of technology is the ability to not only search for wedding venues and other key hires like bands or caterers, is the ability to compare your results. Find the best based on reviews and their portfolios, and then contact only the absolute best. This way you can find that perfect Jewish wedding band like Jam Hot for your reception or wedding ceremony, and you can then find a caterer that specializes in, say, gluten-free meals to accommodate your fiancé’s allergy, and so on.
Create Shared Albums So You Don’t Miss a Picture
For the most part, your wedding album will likely be made up of the professional photos taken by the hired photography you brought along for your big day. This is a huge mistake. Mobile phones have incredibly good cameras nowadays, and those cameras will only continue to improve as time goes on. Moreover, everyone has their own phone. This means that there are plenty of great photos to be taken from many different perspectives. Just ask your guests to try to take candid shots as well as selfies, and to upload it to a shared album. This way you can have the full collection to choose from for your wedding album.
Shared albums can be done on iCloud, Facebook, Flickr, and a variety of other photo-sharing programs both online and offline. Choose your favourite, and you’ll have all the photos from your big day.
Bring in a Drone for Epic Shots
Drones are not allowed in most public places, but usually you can bring one to take photos of you and your wedding party. If you have a big guest list, this is probably the only way to get a photo with everyone in it.
E-Invites to Ensure Everyone Remembers
Another relatively new tech is the cloud syncing between different apps. What this means is that your calendar can sync up with your email. Get an invite, and it goes into your calendar automatically. This way you never have to worry about your guests forgetting about your big day, and can get as many people in as possible.
This doesn’t mean you have to forget entirely about the paper invite; however, instead of asking for a physical response to the RSVP, have it online. This way you can keep track of who is and isn’t coming, and you can benefit from cloud syncing at the same time.
Weddings are large, stressful events, and technology can make them simple. Simply know when new tech will enhance or simplify your wedding and when to keep it old school for the ultimate big day.
