You’ve probably seen a morning show where one lucky couple gets chosen to have viewers help plan all the details of their wedding. The show offers viewers several choices of wedding cakes, bridal gowns, wedding attendants’ attire, and even the ring. Viewers then vote on their favorite. In turn for allowing viewers to make all the decisions, the couple gets a gorgeous, all-expenses-paid wedding. The choices are very posh, mind you, so it’s a win-win for advertisers, the morning show and the couple.
While many couples can only dream of winning the wedding on morning TV, many are able to use social media in this way. It is a lot of fun and many brides and grooms have decided to do this on their own. They make the selections of their top 5 choices of different wedding items, from fashion and music to the choice for a honeymoon destination, and friends and family get to vote. With Twitter, Facebook, websites and blogs, family and friends from far away can stay in the loop of what the bride and groom are thinking, and get in on the decision-making. It can be a lot of fun.
It was once simply a form of entertainment for morning TV viewers, but now many brides-to-be are getting everyone they know and love involved in the decision of their wedding and making for an even more special day!
