I’m getting married this summer, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned about weddings, it’s that it takes a lot of planning to pull one off.
The venue. The food and beverages. The flowers. And the hashtag.
That pesky hashtag. You have to come up with a hashtag for your wedding so your guests have a virtual gathering place for posting and viewing photos and comments about the event!
Now, 100 percent of us could easily come up with a hashtag for a wedding, but it takes time. Like 15 seconds’ worth. Creativity. Passion.
Finally, W Hotels is coming to the rescue.
Well, W Hotels in New York. You’ll have to get married in the Big Apple if you want to have access to their special “Social Media Wedding Concierge” that will make sure your big day is Facebooked, Instagrammed and Tweeted to the max. By professionals. Not your stupid friends.
Huffington Post editor Bianca Bosker tweeted the image below after she was apparently approached by W Hotels with their special package. They shared with her what the $3,000 (three thousand!) would cover:
As I mentioned, I’m getting married in just a few months, and I still don’t see the need for half of this stuff. How many extra people will be running circles around the bride and groom during their first dance to get Instagram photos, Vine videos and shots for the Shutterfly album? When do they yell at the guests to implore them to post more often on their own social media accounts? During the prayer or the toast?
