7 new rules of wedding etiquette for the digital generation

These are the new rules of getting hitched in the modern age.

Send out e-invites

Millennials know that receiving post, other than bills, is a novelty, and that most of us organise our lives over our smartphones. That’s probably why 53 per cent of those polled believe it’s perfectly acceptable for the bride and groom to send out e-invitations to guests instead of formal cards.

Send your well-wishes over Facebook

The same also applies to invitees – it’s bad form not to congratulate your couple-to-be, but according to 61 per cent of those polled, it’s perfectly fine to toast a newly married couple on social media instead of sending a card.

Vet your social media posts

Newlywed Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh recently issued stickers with her wedding invitations for guests to cover their phone camera lens in order to abide by an imposed wedding ‘photography ban.’ Celebrity ego? Apparently not; Forty-five per cent of people agreed they would consider a social media ban at their wedding asking guests to refrain posting pictures until the following day.

Embrace modern table favours

Move aside sugared almonds and personalised chocolates – according to future brides, they wouldn’t rule out putting a selfie stick on each table to make sure their guests remember to capture their big day.
