Thoughts, etiquette and even parodies of how technology fits into romance is found everywhere.
So when MY MOM (yes my mom) sent me a newspaper clipping of this comic, I knew that:
1. My family thinks I’m addicted to technology (they’re probably right)
2. I’m not alone because I know a lot of other people are just as bad as I am
3. It’s about time I write a post on this.
When Mashable posted their top 10 geekiest marriage proposals, reported on a custom made usb wedding ring, taught us how to deal with a real life breakup online, and now even CNN has a netiquette column.
When this topic usually comes up, it’s blamed as a “millennial” thing, that other generations are shocked by (and if you don’t know what I mean, just watch the 60 Minutes Video). But, overall I think that there’s a difference between updating your facebook status in a church (as a joke) or actually doing it seriously.
And the only way it’s OK is if both parties are on board. Take for example the comic– both the bride and the groom (and the priest, humm) are into it, so why not?
Mental Note: Maybe it’s okay to put “iPhones allowed” on the bottom of an invitation if your wedding is going to be tech friendly? I know that I plan to have a mini charger station available for guests when I get married.
