First Dutch #Twedding… Who’s Next?

“Will you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband till… Twitter do you part?”

Apparently, traditional wedding are going out of style and social media is becoming the way to go!

A week ago, Holland witnessed the events of the first wedding concluded via Twitter: The groom-to-be proposed via Twitter and the bride-to-be accepted in the same way. They invited people via Twitter and the actual wedding ceremony could be followed via Twitter as well.

Take a look at the video below (it’s in Dutch yet a picture says a thousand words!)

Dutch Twedding!

Following a request made via Twitter for sponsorships, more than 125 companies offered assistance sponsoring, virtually everything related to the wedding (the suit of the groom, the rings, the champagne, the car, the cake, etc.).

The day after the wedding ceremony, they organized a party and they expected hundreds of people to show up. They turned it into a benefit for an organization called Pink Ribbon, which supports breast cancer research.

Otherwise, I am really curious to know your reaction about this nontraditional wedding: Would you do the same? Do you think its romantic and original enough?

Looking forward to your comments and feedback down below…

    I just think that it's a shame that such a personal moment has been turned into an internet fund-raising stunt…
