Millennial Wedding Trends
As the generation of the millennials has developed, our advanced technology and the concept of having the world at your fingertips has managed to influence the developing trends in almost every industry. Weddings are no exception, and millennials have developed an impressive and technologically led range of wedding trends which are astoundingly growing in popularity. Though traditional white weddings are still incredibly popular and oh so gorgeous, let’s discuss the millennial trends which are sweeping the wedding industry by storm and appear to be here to stay.
Snapchat is undeniably one of the most popular social media platforms, and one of the most exciting millennial trends to sweep the wedding industry is the development of custom snapchat filters. Snapchat allows you to share pictures and videos with friends or ‘followers’, and on their website you can quickly and easily design a customised filter and set it to the location of your wedding for the correct date and time. This will encourage guests to take plenty of pictures on the day, timestamp all of the pictures with your custom filter and allow you to collect a range of fabulous images from your special day, sharing them with the world branded with your fantastic filter!
Thanks to the increasing popularity of social media, it’s inevitable that your wedding guests will be sharing their snaps on their variety of social media accounts. Though choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding planning and your official photography will be a stunning memory of your special day, sometimes the candid shots which are captured by friends and family are the ones that make you happiest when you look back over the memories of your special day. Creating a custom hashtag and popping it on every table will encourage guests to share their images with the hashtag, which means it will take a simple search on Instagram or Twitter for you to have a digital and custom wedding album absolutely full of shots of your special day.
One millennial wedding trend which seems to have boomed as of late is including a photo booth at your wedding reception. Photo booths are incredibly popular because they allow your guests to socialise, take some incredible pictures and have a lot of fun at the same time. Most photo booths will come with a stunning selection of props which make your pictures even more fun, and including a photo booth will ensure that the selection of wedding pictures get more and more hilarious as the evening goes on thanks to the amount of celebratory toasts made with champagne!
