#OUR­WED­DING, TREND­ING

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BULLETIN -

The fur­thest ex­treme of bride-and-groomzilla de­mands? Want­ing your wed­ding to be a so­cial me­dia sen­sa­tion.

TWIT­TER NUP­TIALS For­get the pho­tog­ra­pher and the videog­ra­pher, the mod­ern wed­ding now also needs a tweeter. W Ho­tels in New York of­fers a ‘So­cial Me­dia Wed­ding Concierge’ ser­vice, and for $3 000 (more than R30 000) you can ben­e­fit from ‘concierge’ ser­vices in­clud­ing ‘cu­rat­ing a unique wed­ding #hash­tag’. How about #nothanks.

A HOL­LY­WOOD SAVE THE DATE ‘Com­ing this Sum­mer…’ A cou­ple in San Fran­cisco made what looks like a B-list ac­tion-movie trailer for their July wed­ding (fea­tur­ing a he­li­copter and at least a few smoke ma­chines). They’re both suc­cess­ful lawyers, so there’s no telling how they had time for this.

SCENE-STEAL­ERS Over in an­other state, a Vir­ginia cou­ple restaged movie posters for their ‘save the date’. Pretty im­pres­sively, we might add.
