In the digital age, technology is dramatically changing weddings. A tap of a key makes planning easier. Innovative devices can create jaw-dropping special effects (think Michael Jackson performing at your celebration). And virtual weddings allow you to be in two places at once.

If Zoom is the only technology you’re using for your nuptials, you’re missing out on other options that can streamline the planning process and enhance the guest experience. Here are five creative tech tools and ideas to make your wedding memorable.

Digital Invites and Wedding Websites

Go tech savvy with the first step of wedding planning. Whether it’s an animated reel or a subtle e-card, opt for digital invites instead of physical copies. You’ll get to be more creative and by not using paper, you’ll be more eco-friendly.

You can also curate and send a personalized wedding website. Sharing a link with your guests is convenient for all parties involved. Include all the relevant information like your itinerary, dress codes, and FAQs. The best part is you can also collect RSVPs via the same link. Platforms like Appy Couple allow you to create a wedding website effortlessly. There are multiple templates to choose from, and you can personalise it as much as you’d like.  

Virtual Setup Preview

Back in the day, you would have to work with pen and paper to create your wedding floor plan. Even then, there was no way to be accurate with spatial design. Today, you can log onto and create your own detailed layout.

The immersive planning tool allows you to meticulously design floor plans, arrange seating, and take virtual tours of your venues. The drag-and-drop features let you experiment with furniture layouts, stage setups, and F&B spaces. 

Projection Mapping

Want to make your guests feel like they are transported to the Valdivian rainforest? With video mapping, you can. The Projection technique adds dimensions and creates optical illusions which will leave your guests bewildered. Video mapping turns surfaces and objects into a spatially augmented virtual reality. The aesthetics can also be combined with audio to create an audiovisual narrative to create a transformative experience.

If you’re ready to splurge, you can even have Michael Jackson perform at your wedding! Spend more, and you can have a hologram of any person (living or dead) at your wedding – with the proper permissions in place, of course. From a technical perspective, these involve projecting or reflecting an image onto an invisible surface.

Innovative Wedding Rings

Wear your technology on your finger. Make your ring exchange innovative by opting for a smart ring. For example, Oura rings are made of titanium and measure your body’s important biometrics. Not only do they look cool, but they can track your sleep and count your steps through all your wedding events. Better yet, you can measure your heart rate as you walk down the aisle.

Virtual Reality Streaming

Zoom is great, but virtual reality is better. Invite your wedding guests to the Metaverse and you can host a one-of-a-kind celebration. Through VR headsets, guests can join your nuptials from the comfort of their homes. They will be able to experience the event by interacting with avatars of the bride and groom, as well as other guests. Check out Bangkok VR Rentals to get more information on obtaining headsets and the VR experience.
