There are some important questions you’ll have to answer for your wedding day. Do you want roses or peonies? Should you wear a fit-and-flare or a ball gown? Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband? And, most importantly, how many “likes” did the photo of your first kiss get? Lucky for you, you don’t have to worry about that last question anymore. From now until the end of this year, W Hotel’s four New York City locations are offering a social media wedding concierge for the bargain-basement price of $3,000.
Described on their website as “a modern day take on the traditional wedding planner,” this social media concierge will be with you before, during and after the wedding. They’ll set up and maintain your wedding blog as well as create inspiration Pinterest boards for you (because who knows what inspires you better than someone you’ve hired?). When you’re busy trying on dresses and choosing between red velvet or strawberry cream cake, they’ll Instagram photos and post tweets about it. After you look into your new husband’s eyes and say “I do,” they’ll capture a video and post it with the appropriate hashtag.
And don’t even worry about your clueless cousin posting a photo of you cutting that cake with a caption that includes the wrong hashtag! The social media concierge will be there to make sure all your guests use the right hashtag. When it’s all over, they’ll create a Shutterfly book for you with social media highlights from the planning process and the big day.
The truth is, we live in a world where everything we do is posted to social media. For some, the opportunity to hand over the reins and not have to worry about statuses and hashtags on their wedding day may just be a welcome opportunity. So the question is, would you pay $3,000 for a social media wedding concierge?
