May 19th, 2014 by Tech Staff
WEDDING SEASON IS HERE! Everyone has seen the viral video of a couple's first dance as husband and wife or the amazingly choreographed entries of wedding parties. But for brides who do not want their weddings to play out like a reality TV show, how much is too much?
- Don't Spoil the Surprise: 62% believe the bridesmaids should not post any photos of the bride in her wedding dress before the ceremony.
- Wait Your Turn: 58% believe the bride and groom should be the first to post a photo from the wedding.
- Viral Video Stars: 32% are saying "I don't" to any video content on YouTube, which means no chance of a viral video!
- #BestWeddingEver: 26% want you to use their specially-created hashtag should you post anything about the wedding. Actress Kaley Cuoco not only Instagrammed during her wedding and in the days after, she even used her own hashtag #thesweetings. Cuoco's first wedding photo posted on Instagram under the hashtag received more than 48,000 "likes" from her fans.
- Sharing is Caring: Only 22% think the bride and groom should be the only ones to post photos from the wedding. Once again Kaley Cuoco and her husband shared their happiness online allowing their guests to post photos throughout their New Year's Eve wedding, and Mad Men actor Ben Feldman posted a photo of him and his bride right after the ceremony.
