Kansas City Wedding DJ Tip: Tasteful Use Of Social Media At Your Wedding

In July, this Kansas City wedding DJ blog featured an article, “Don’t Be A Wedding Tweeting Twit,” that addressed what some Brides and Grooms consider to be a less than appropriate use of social media by guests at wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions.   

As a wedding DJ in Kansas City and Wedding Entertainment Director™ that truly believes the best Kansas City wedding receptions are the direct result of creative and original ideas that produce unforgettable fun, there is some guilt that the key element of enjoyment was absent from last summer’s article.

A very recent article on Mashable.com should help correct that mis-step. In “How To: Tastefully Use Social Media At Your Wedding,” author Amy-Mae Elliott has put together 6, fun ideas that Kansas City Brides and Grooms can use to take advantage of Twitter and Facebook, transforming them into tools that will create special memories.

With the input of wedding experts and a former Bride, Ms. Elliott discusses how a wedding web site and/or a Facebook group page are a great way to introduce wedding guests before the big day to avoid any day-of awkwardness. Her article suggests appointing a “Chief Tweeter” to document the day, setting up a “Social Media Station” for guests to connect or comment on-line (this Kansas City wedding DJs favorite idea), “airing” a live stream of the ceremony and reception on Ustream for out-of town family and friends that couldn’t make the trip and featuring the newlywed’s change of “status” from single to married as a part of the day’s festivities.

For some great thoughts on how to incorporate the fun, original ideas presented by the author, read “How To: Tastefully Use Social Media At Your Wedding” in it’s entirety. Then, you’re invited to come back to our Kansas City wedding DJ blog to post your comments. How strongly do you feel, pro or con, about guests using social media in real time to let the world in on what is happening at your wedding?
