6 tips to embrace digital technology for your 2024 wedding!

Published by Claire Gould on

When we read that weddings are becoming more digital we were intrigued. After all, we’ve just published another blog about unplugged weddings! But even if you ask guests to turn off their phones, you can embrace modern technology to create incredible memories of your day!

Here’s our top 6 tips to embrace digital technology for your 2024 wedding!

1. Polaroid guest book

Splash out on an INSTAX hybrid camera so your guests can print a selfie and write a lovely message in your guest book!

We love the modern alternative to a traditional guest book which allows you to keep (hilarious) pics of your guests alongside their notes and well wishes.

It’s also super fun – feather boas and funny hats to one side could be an optional extra!

2. Your own unique wedding day podcast

Tell the story of your wedding day – and keep it forever! Storylocker’s wedding podcast is a fantastic new way to capture your love story that can be shared with friends and family forever.

Storylocker offer a pre and post wedding podcast, where you can share your pre-wedding excitement and then share all the best memories of your day! It’s a super lovely way to remember how that bear hug from Grandma felt, or exactly what happened when Bella from college fell into the fountain. If you’re looking for something really unique for your wedding, your very own wedding podcast could be it! Be the trailblazer couple and embrace this unique way of preserving your story.

3. Get a wedding video – don’t regret it later!

It’s surprising how many couples still don’t hire a videographer. Still images are of course beautiful and timeless, but video captures the atmosphere of your day in a whole new way.

Our top tip? Ask your wedding photographer who they would recommend to video your day. They’ll always know someone amazing – and it’s good to find a photographer and videographer who will work together seamlessly!

4. Have fun with your wedding website

As well as being an essential hub for all of your guests, a wedding website can be loads of fun to make. As well as all the info on timings, accommodation and pre-wedding activities, include some personal stories to make your guests chuckle. You could even ask your families and friends to send in their stories about the two of you!

5. Research suppliers on social

Love or hate social media, it’s a wonderful place to find wedding suppliers and see a little more about who they are and what makes them tick! You also get to see loads of examples of their work and learn a little more of their personalities.

Let’s admit it, instagram-stalking wedding suppliers’ beautiful images can be loads of fun, and really exciting! Our faves to follow are photographers, florists, cake designers and celebrants.

6. Consider drone photography – if it fits your day

Lots of wedding photographers have extra strings to their bow these days, and if you’re looking for something different, find a photographer who has a drone! They take incredible overhead shots of your venue and your guests – perfect for an outdoor wedding or a venue in the countryside or by the sea. Check out 400 Feet Films in Dorset who offer wedding films with aerial photography!
