Innovation in technology hasn’t just been limited to businesses and gadgets. Contemporary wedding trends are seeing traditional ceremonies turned on their head with the use of some pretty cool devices. So long as you are a willing couple who isn’t afraid to try new things, a high-tech wedding might be one of the things that makes your special day that much more memorable.
As 2017 is nearly here, let’s look at a few of the wedding technology trends capturing the attention of this generation’s brides and grooms.
The Robot Bartender
Nothing says wedding technology like a robot bartender. It’s seems so out there, but it’s actually a simple concept. Your guests are able to use a digital menu to select their drink of choice. That drink is then prepared by the robo-bartender to the precise specifications. As the night wears on and you want to tone it down a bit, you can even control the amount of alcohol that’s poured in each drink. The robot bartender is definitely a memorable addition to any wedding reception.
This hasn’t quite broken into mainstream fashion yet, but it has a lot of potential to be amazing for both the bride and groom. Wearable technology, like a watch and even a ring, can track your movements throughout the day. In the case of a ring, you can even see the expression on the bride’s face when she says “I do.” Now that’s special. However, the price-point just isn’t able to make it accessible to the public just yet.
3D printing is officially taking over. From its start printing plastic figurines to now being used for architectural-type metal printing, it’s safe to say that this is a trend that has the potential to transform our lives. But we’re talking weddings here, and what’s cooler than a 3D centrepiece? Or imagine your tables set with 3D printouts of embellishments around the guests’ tables. That’s a conversation piece for the ages.
Photo Booth GIF
This is just plain old fun. Photo booths aren’t anything new. Guests expect there to be somewhere they can take fun photos. But you can amp up the excitement by turning your photo booth into a GIF booth. GIF photo booths follow the same basic principle as regular photo booth, except the booth snaps multiple pictures that transform into a GIF. Of course, the next step is to post your favorite ones to social media and let everyone see how much fun you’re having at the wedding.
If GIFs are a twist on the old photo booths, then selfie sticks are a complete 180 using traditional wedding photographers. Selfie sticks are great because they let your guests interact with each other in ways they normally wouldn’t. Think of everyone squeezing together to fit into that one classic selfie. It’s another cool outlet to keep your guests entertained throughout your ceremony.
USB Charging Stations for Multiple Devices
With all this new technology, you’ll need to find some way to keep the party going. USB charging stations for multiple devices are a technological must-have for weddings today. While you’re guests are taking iPhone pics and posting their favorite moments to social media, you don’t want them to worry about their batteries fading. Use one of your tables as a USB charging station and watch it double as an area where guests gather for conversation.
At Ohming Technology, we want to play a small but important part in your wedding. We’ve created the Charge M.E., which can charge up to eight devices simultaneously. With all the technology at your wedding, can you really afford not to have a charging station?
