Putting together a wedding can be incredibly time consuming, and one must think about catering, photography, the venue and a whole lot more.
But what about someone to tweet the whole thing? According to a pitch email received by Bianca Bosker, W Hotels in New York now offer a “Social Media Wedding Concierge.”
Available at four locations through December 31, here’s what the $3,000 package includes:
-Live tweeting of the ceremony and reception
-Instagram photos and videos and Vine videos
-Curating a unique wedding #hashtag
-Encouraging guests to utilize hashtag and handles as they post to social media
-Set up and maintenance of Wedding Blog before and after the big day
-Curating registry wish list and dream honeymoon Pinterest boards to inspire couple
-A Shutterfly book complete with social media highlights from the planning process and a collage of the best tweets and Instagrams sent during the wedding
Honestly, we can’t blame W Hotels for coming up with such an idea. Social media has become completely engrained in our daily lives, and this service is a natural extension of that.
Social media has been proven to attract narcissists, and what better way to let everyone know about your special day than having a dedicated team posting about it constantly.
Of course, this package is incredibly idiotic and a huge waste of money. The fact is, nobody really gives a shit about your wedding.
Yes, it’s your big day, a day that will impact the rest of your life, but thousands of weddings happen every single day for people to care very little about.
Don’t subject your friends and followers to every single moment. Instead, cherish those moments yourself, and remind your guests to pull their face out of their fucking phones.
