With people looking to keep costs low, it looks like there’s a new wedding planner in town – and it goes by the name of Facebook!

Social networking has become such a ubiquitous force that newlyweds are even updating their relationship status on Facebook, say the UK’s leading online wedding directory, Tying the Knot.

According a recent Daily Mail article, Facebook fans check their social networking activity at least 14 times a day – and with several people utilising the many features such as tagging people in uploaded photos, sending friend requests and mentioning people in status updates, Facebook is now even being used to organise weddings.

Simon Barwell of Tying the Knot stated: “With people looking to keep costs low, it looks like there’s a new wedding planner in town – and it goes by the name of Facebook! Whilst its tools are free and can be used at a moment’s notice, an event so personal and meaningful can often get lost in digital translation.”

As more people enjoy mobile freedom by being able to check their Facebook whilst on the move, this has widened the availability of unique locations – with thousands of couples taking advantage of the Tying the Knot unusual wedding venues service. From the idyllic Monastery Manchester to CairnGorm (home to the UK’s highest and fastest railway), Tying the Knot offers a variety of unique locations to ensure a memorable wedding.

“Approximately 70 per cent of smartphone users are regular Facebook visitors, and with the evening being the most popular time to browse Facebook, it’s best to be respectful and have phones turned off – especially during the ceremony – as the last thing anyone would want is a phone ringing,” added Barwell. “Etiquette has also changed, with around 50 per cent of users checking Facebook while watching a film. Let’s just hope this statistic doesn’t interfere with the most important day of a person’s life – which is the official celebration of the love of a lifetime.”

Building a network comprising many of the UK’s leading wedding suppliers, Tying the Knot offers a selection of wedding solutions, including:

  •     Bridalwear
  •     Designer dancefloors
  •     Hair & Beauty
  •     Vintage crockery
  •     Venue dressing

Their exclusive venue finder service also helps couples narrow down their ideal wedding destination, whether it’s choosing places of worship in Scotland to wedding venues in Cheshire.
