Facebook status updates at the altar

Ceremony & Vows, Wedding Style & Decor

You might have heard about this video that has gone viral in the past week where a groom change's his Facebook status from "engaged" to "married" on the altar at his wedding. It's sparked a lot of debate in our office and I'm sure in others as to whether it's lame or funny. The overall consensus: if everyone is in on the joke (the bride was handed a phone and changed her status too) then why not! The officiant even got a laugh when he said, "I now pronounce you husband and wife. It's official on Facebook, it's official in my book." We thought it was cute way to break up the ceremony and get a laugh out of your guests. Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think.
