We are getting married in a few weeks and would it be chavy to stop the service to update our FB status,afterall this is a news as it happens world and I am a fast living up to date kind of guy

OldLadyKnowsNothing Fri 23-Jul-10 20:34:44

ROFL! grin Why not tweet it too?

Jason, as it's you, YANBU grin.

Could you request that your guests record proceedings on phones and upload them to FB and YouTube during the service as well?

What FLiss said!! PMSL!

Why am I not suprised this is you grin

SherbetDibDab Fri 23-Jul-10 20:45:30

Love it.

I think it would be rather romantic to stop the service and bring out matching i-phones. I'm sure in 20 years time it will be considered a traditional part of any wedding.

Good idea - then you'll be able to tweet, or maybe even blog, your experiences of a busy casualty department as a team of doctors attempt to remove a four inch ivory satin stiletto heel from your groin!

Do it, but first request that all the congregation "like" your status.

I know someone who changed her status on FB on the way from ceremony to reception. shock

This was at a wedding where the dress code seemed to be hoodies and tracksuit bottoms though (how overdressed did I feel!?!)

Lower the tone if you want. It's your day after all.


we went to a wedding last weekend and dh came up with a new 'invention' - a wedding service app. maybe you'd be interested jason?

suwoo Fri 23-Jul-10 22:18:06

Has already been done. I remember seeing it on youtube, but am too tired pissed to search.

If it was me, yeah I so would. I am avid facebooker though.

Have a great day.

ArseHolio Fri 23-Jul-10 22:24:26

I did it at my wedding !

So did DH..and our Iphones do match grin

All the cool people do wink

Have a lovely day

Monty100 Fri 23-Jul-10 22:34:22

Cool as in............


Quality Fri 23-Jul-10 22:38:56

Yes. YABU. anyone who gives a shit cares will be at the wedding

ArseHolio Fri 23-Jul-10 22:41:34

Well it was the reception actually not the wedding proper.


Lewisfan Fri 23-Jul-10 22:43:34

my sister will do this at some point, maybe not during the church bit, but not long after I rekon... if my mum finds out, she's gonna go ape!

oopsandbabycoconuts Fri 23-Jul-10 22:45:02

Jason, I was wondering where you were, you have been a bit quiet this week

SirBoobAlot Fri 23-Jul-10 22:46:08

Do it! Am make sure you then come on here to tell us you've done it...

Maybe even get the vicar / register to pose for a picture with you as proof? grin

valiumSingleton Fri 23-Jul-10 22:46:25

why not?! it won't take long. upload a photo while you're at it.

Wordsonascreen Fri 23-Jul-10 22:47:42

Won't all your friends (ie facebook buds) be at your wedding.. thus negating the update quandry?

WillowM2B Fri 23-Jul-10 22:47:51

Make it more interesting and change it to "single" or "its complicated".

nattiecake Fri 23-Jul-10 22:56:16

my husband did actually update his in between the wedding and the reception! i thought it was kinda sweet

MilkNoSugarPlease Fri 23-Jul-10 22:58:21

Do It!!

Love it

i got married a few weeks ago. facebook was the last thing from mine or my husbands minds. i think i changed mine the next day. i suppose some of you guests might laugh, but think of the grandmas. for the love of god, someone think of the grandmas!

Jasonthunderpants Sat 24-Jul-10 20:55:50

I cant believe people think this is a good idea

I think IABU

GenevieveHawkings Sun 25-Jul-10 00:00:48

If you do this you are not being unreasonable - just really cringey and I'm glad I'm not marrying you.

ladysybil Sun 25-Jul-10 00:21:13

it seems to be a real thing with all my younger cousins. updatedig fb relationshipp status every five minutes.

Monty100 Sun 25-Jul-10 00:31:07

Gen - me too grin.

Lady - but on your wedding day??

How sad is it? shock

Ohhhhh criiiiiinge

marcopront Sun 25-Jul-10 09:10:36

A friend of mine uploaded photos in the early hours of the morning after her wedding. She does have a lot of friends overseas but....

duchesse Sun 25-Jul-10 09:17:16

In one word, OP, Not "chavvy" but crass, shallow and undignified, yes.

duchesse Sun 25-Jul-10 09:17:37

Ok, that was 3 words. I got carried away.

Quality Sun 25-Jul-10 09:38:02

grin at you thinking YABU too.

i don't think jason really thinks he's going to do it. I am interested to hear what mrs jt has to say about it though.
