I’m attending a friend’s wedding this summer – the first of anybody my age. Frankly, it’s freaking me out a bit; we all just turned twenty-four.
Frankly, weddings are about the one kind of event that Proximate really doesn’t get into. But with wedding season hitting full swing in the summer months, I figure I’d better pay attention to tech at weddings (if only to tide myself over until open bar).
There are some obvious ones – what is Pinterest without wedding ideas? – and portals like the Knot. But what about general-use tech than can solve some annoying parts of planning and running a wedding? I’ve got five ideas here.
DJs are really expensive for someone who’s essentially looping Sinatra, regrettable 80′s pop, and “The Electric Slide.” Luckily, there’s a lot out there if you choose Spotify or your streaming service of choice. Getting your guests in on the playlist-creation before the reception takes it off your already full to-do list. And, because I founded a company with Evan Morikawa, the day will come where I see a Turntable.FM wedding.
