Wow. Yeah, I love Twitter, but that’s ridiculous.  That’s up there with woman posting to Facebook that they’re in labor. Random people on Facebook DO NOT need to know you’re having contractions!

If this was just meant to be funny, it was pretty darn funny! Hopefully the older generation understood the humor.

I just hope it doesn’t become a trend. 😛

if my hubby did that I’d be so annoyed, but hopefully it was supposed to be funny!

during a religious ceremony though, like mine, do not think it is appropriate at all

… I think… it’s overkill. I mean… twiter and facebook are fun and all, but come ON!!!

I would personally find this pretty tacky, but I guess whatever works for them + their guests.

It appears to me that they were trying to be funny by the way the groom gestures to the guests like wait one second.  But honestly I think they ruined a very special moment for themselves.  They could have turned after the ceremony and pulled out their phones and gotten a cute response similiar to doing a cute dance down the asile but this goes too far IMO.

I agree that it was probably supposed to be funny. But I have to bet the older generation didn’t get it. I can’t even explain Twitter to my parents or boss, let alone a grandparent. ^_^

Sounds like I’m in the minority here but I thought it was hilarious.  I don’t know the couple, but the impression I got was it was very “them”.  Maybe they met on facebook and it has a special meaning to them or maybe the groom was just so overjoyed that he wanted to share his news with the world, either way their guests seem to get quite a laugh out of it.  Now I’m not saying I hope this becomes the new trend, but I am all for couples making their wedding their own.

At first, I thought, TACKY! But when I watched it i thought it was cute, and memorable for the guest. Most ceremonies are sooo boring! 

At my friends ceremony the pastor read aloud the first conversation the couple had ever had, and it was through facebook. Very cute, and funny.

^^I totally agree

 

 

It seems like it was completely planned out. I wouldn’t do anything like that at my wedding, but it was pretty funny

My fiance WORKS for Twitter, and he would never do anything like that! I’d probably kick him 🙂

At first I was like…wha?! Technology is too much!

But it looks like this couple planned it and it was kind of a joke.  Definitely not my style for the ceremony..but at least it was for entertainment!
