The four W Hotels in New York City are now offering a new service in the form of “social media wedding concierges” to document the entire wedding experience across social media platforms for $3,000. The W’s social media concierge will publish live tweets and #hashtags, post photos and videos to Instagram from the altar. But unless you are Kim Kardashian (and television network pays you $17 million), you wouldn’t want to over-document your wedding.
The social media concierge will also create Pinterest boards to inspire your honeymoon plans and registry, and create a wedding social media recap featuring the best tweets and instagrams sent during the wedding. Guests will also be encouraged to use the wedding hashtag especially “curated” for you (for instance #brangelina). Couples will also receive a personalized Shutterfly book post-Wedding as a digital-to-print keepsake of their “social media highlights.”
“With social media as a growing, integral part of documenting the entire wedding experience, the hotels are now offering brides and grooms the opportunity to take advantage of this trend and put a spin on ‘something borrowed’ by borrowing one of W’s social media experts to document their special day via social media,” as stated by the Hotel’s press release.
#OurTake: There is a reason why you didn’t invite your brother’s soccer instructor or your mother’s dentist; small weddings mean a more personal celebration. While live tweeting may be a good idea for far-flung loved ones to not miss any detail from your big day, it can relatively be painful for uninvited friends.
Social media serves as a kind of existential reassurance. We have all become so used to sharing things online that we don’t know when to stop. Instead, spare the $3000 for your honeymoon or setting up your dream house with your partner. Money worth spent!
