This century has brought us so many technological advancements; it’s hard to keep track of them. We’ve made improvements to the way we get around, the way we pay for goods and services, and even how we stay informed. With the development of social media, we are constantly connected to the world around us – whether that be in global news or simply by seeing pictures of your friend’s new baby on Facebook.

You may think that you’re quite savvy in the art of the “online updates,” but if social media is an important element of your life, you may not want to leave the posting up to you and your bridesmaids on your big day. Maybe your personal brand is vital to your career – anyone in the PR or marketing fields, interior designers, politicians, etc. – and you dream of having an internet-ready wedding with a clever hashtag. Ladies and gentlemen: we give you the Wedding Day Social Media Strategist.

With new services, such as New-York based Maid of Social, you can hire an expert to do all of your day-of updating for you. These companies work with couples to make sure they know all pertinent information and then work out a strategy.

Experts can do most anything you and your love require: live-tweeting, getting the perfect angles for “candid” snapshots, even filming short videos throughout the reception to show Vine just how much fun your day was. Additionally, they can hold fast to your wedding hashtag and make sure all of your vendors are tagged and properly credited in all posts. The best part? They’ll only post pictures and text you approve! This may dilute blurry Instagram photos of your walk down the aisle taken by your third cousin’s new girlfriend.

If the price is within your spending limit, they’re a fantastic investment – not only for your personal accounts, but for family and friends who may not have been able to make it to your ceremony. Customizable packages start at around $1,200, but when your vows are all said and done, you won’t have to spend your wedding night trying to agree on a great filter.
