The Wedding Selfie. Will You? - Whimsical Wonderland Weddings

Who doesn't love a selfie? It's the ultimate way of self expression and micro blogging about yourself on social media.

I've seen a huge surge in the number of selfies at weddings I've featured recently and even have a dedicated pinterest board now. It's definitely a trend surging through weddings up and down the country and further afield. It's just so fun.

So I thought it would make for a light hearted feature this afternoon.

Socially on the net it started from updating relationship statuses on facebook to engaged/married, to using personalised hashtags on twitter and now getting snap happy together over on instagram. What's not to love? I guess the question is, are you taking your mobile with you to your wedding? If so what are you planning on using it for? Are you hoping that it will keep you connected to guests, are you keen to get social or simply take some snaps?

To be fair if I were planning my wedding right now I'd probably have my mobile on me. I mean when do I not have my iPhone on me? Plus it would mean I'd need a super stylish pocket in my gown or pretty arm candy to store said phone in. My main issue is in those fun snap happy moments I quite often and annoyingly forget to take a photograph. This is where a professional wedding photographer comes in for sure. It means you can relax safe in the knowledge that every moment is caught forever and beautifully.

Of course that's not to say you can't indulge in a little impromptu snap together for instant sharing via WhatsApp or your social media outlet of choice. Plus like these couples, your photographer can snap you in the act for the ultimate double selfie ;-)

What I love about wedding selfies is that they are happy, spontaneous and joyful moments. Whether you strike a silly pose and add text to your final image or you go for your most flattering angle or pout, it creates a memory that lasts.

So I guess the question is, are you planning on the ultimate selfie as a bride or groom? Will you be happy for your guests and wedding party to get snapping self portraits? Or are you hoping for an unplugged kind of day? It's food for thought isn't it? But super playful nonetheless. Happy Friday xo Lou
