Will Your Wedding Have A Tweet of Honor?

An emerging trend in the bridal scene is changing the way couples choose to share their special day with distant relatives and friends.

Imagine being at a wedding and seeing someone in the crowd typing furiously on their phone or laptop as if they didn’t even know there was a life changing celebration going on just feet away. Would you say something to them? Would you simply dismiss it as a rude inconsiderate act? Well, don’t be too quick to judge. This person could be immersed in their own little digital world at the exact request of the bride and groom. Allow us to explain.

A recent press release by Hitched.co.uk suggests that engaged couples now need to begin appointing a new key role in their wedding party. They explain that along with your Best Man and Bridesmaids, you now need to make sure you choose someone to be your Chief Twitter.

So what’s a Chief Twitter? {We like Tweet of Honor better)
In simple terms, a couple’s Tweet of Honor, is a specific person designated by the couple whose role is to keep everyone who can’t be at your wedding up to date via short Twitter messages.

On their website, Hitched.co.uk even goes as far as suggesting the ideal main elements that make up the duties for this new wedding role:

- The Tweet of Honor will be required to register an Twitter address for your wedding day : Example: BobSue2009
- The Tweet of Honor will email your virtual guests with the address so they can follow along during the day
- This person will also update Twitter frequently throughout the big day so everyone know when the couple arrives at the church and the exact moment the vows are exchanged.
- Also be required to read out any messages of good luck that have been sent back after the event.

We figure a Tweet of Honor can be either a male or a female and could very well be a text savvy teenager who would probably appreciate the opportunity to stay connected to the Internet throughout the entire day.

Although we understand the concept, we just still don’t get this wedding fad. But, we could be wrong.

So, I guess my only question to you is:
What would you do if someone asked you to be his or her Tweet of Honor?
