Given my best-of-both-worlds outlook, it took me a while to decide how “connected” I wanted to be throughout the wedding day. Did I want to blog live? Shoot out Facebook and Twitter updates? Or did I want to unplug and just take in the day?
In the end, the hectic nature of the wedding – from the prep time to the final dance – made the choice for me. After blogging live first at our rehearsal dinner, which you can see me doing in the picture above, and then once the next morning while getting my hair done, I cast aside my beloved iPhone in exchange for something much more tantalizing – my wedding dress. And I didn’t pick it back up again until later that night, after all the festivities had finally drawn to a close.
Though part of me wishes I could have blogged more, in the end, I’m glad things worked out the way they did. Instead of taking time out to focus on my phone, I was fully in the moment, enjoying my day and my once-in-a-lifetime moment with Stephen. But, that said, a quick wedding night blog check never hurt anyone, right? LOL!
Do you plan to be “live” on your wedding day?
