More brides turn to Twitter and apps to commemorate their special day
Since Richelle Little joined Twitter last year, every major event in her life has been influenced by the microblogging site: She met her best friend at a local outing organized through Twitter; she found her job as a public relations professional by networking on Twitter; and now, with her wedding months away, Little plans to commemorate her big day, in a similar fashion: with a hashtag on Twitter.
“It was a natural fit,” says the 24-year-old from Kingston, Ont.
For the moment, Little is using the hashtag, #morganwedding2013, to update her followers on wedding-related happenings ranging from the serious – “Minister booked.” – to the more lighthearted – “My biggest fear is looking as awkward as Bella Swan does when I walk down the aisle,” referring to the human-turned-vampire from the Twilight saga.
But, what she’s really looking forward to, is everyone else using the hashtag on her big day. “I’m definitely going to have my phone with me,” she says. “I want to be able to go on Twitter and see what people close to me are saying. I can also go back afterwards and relive the memories from their point of view.”
