We can’t decide if this is genius or ridiculous. The W Hotel is now offering “social media concierges” for hire as part of their wedding offerings at all four of their NYC locations. The cost? A mere $3,000!
So what does this social media concierge do? According to an email from the hotel, they hope to help you “say goodbye to the shameless wedding selfie.” Included in the package is live tweeting, Instagram and Vine posts, curating of your custom wedding hashtag, creation of a wedding blog, and help setting up a Pinterest wedding registry wish list and dream honeymoon board. They’ll also “encourage guests to utilize hashtags and handles during the wedding.” Hmmm, I’m not entirely sure even I’d want that, and I’m about as big a social media enthusiast as they come!
So what do you think, would you pay for a social media concierge, do it yourself, or is your wedding something a bit more sacred that shouldn’t be entirely focused around promotion and buzz? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
