Technology has worked its magic in nearly every area of our lives, including weddings. Keep reading for some simple High-Tech wedding ideas that you can incorporate into your big day, even if you don’t have an engineering degree.
A Mini-Camera in the Bridal Bouquet
The bride walking down the aisle is one of the most special moments on the big day, and a mini-camera is the perfect way to capture it from the perspective of the bride. Simply ask the florist to save a little space for the camera to be added to the bouquet. You’ll end up with great footage of the parental handoff (if that’s your style), the vows, and the first kiss.
A New Perspective with Drones
Drones aren’t just for snooping around your neighborhood and teasing your dog; as it turns out, they can be used to get some pretty awesome wedding pictures and video footage. Couples have used them to get amazing aerial shots, and a few have even used them as a clever stand-in (fly-in?) for a ring bearer. Just remember to make sure your venue is okay with the use of a drone, and don’t forget to confirm that you’ve registered your drone with the FAA.
Geotargeted Snapchat Filters
Will you be encouraging guests to use social media at your wedding? For just a few bucks, you can create your own Snapchat Geofilter. Snapchat provides the guidelines to design it, letting you specify your geofence, the date, and the time period of your wedding and reception. You can design your own filter if that’s your thing, or you can go the easy route by using one of their premade wedding templates.
Augmented Reality Keepsake
Of course, you’re going to want to take some of your amazing photos from your big day and have them turned into art for your home. Now you can take it a step further by syncing some of your wedding footage with your photos and actually watch them come to life on top of your wall art. By using the Soundwave Art mobile app you can relive the moment anytime with a simple scan from the mobile device you always have with you.
360-Degree Virtual Reality Wedding Video
Wedding videos are a fun way to look back on your special day, whether you’re watching them a month after the ceremony or for your 15-year anniversary. But imagine being able to actually relive the moments, “standing” next to yourself and your spouse during the vow exchange or beside your father as he gives his emotion-filled speech. With today’s technology, it’s totally possible. Several brands, including Sony, Samsung, and Google, have launched VR glasses, and it’s not at all surprising that 360-degree 3-D video technology is changing wedding videos for the better.
Want to make sure that your guests are able to take and share as many pictures as they want? Consider setting up a few charging stations around your reception area to give friends and family an opportunity to recharge their smartphone batteries. Just make sure that you have plenty of cords for both iPhones and Androids so that everyone can enjoy the convenience.
You don’t have to be a tech wizard to incorporate some high-tech elements into your big day. These are just a few of the ways that you can commemorate your wedding day and add some truly memorable elements.
