When Dana & Tracey Hanna got married they wanted all their friends and family that couldn’t be there to know about it right when it happened. Just prior to officially becoming husband and wife, Dana whips out his BlackBerry to update his Facebook status and to send it out on Twitter.
His Tweet was, “Standing at the altar with Tracy where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride. #weddingday”
I have a lot of family scattered around the country and we all use Facebook a lot to keep in touch. So when Tracy and I were engaged, most of my family found out via Facebook because we updated our statuses. I surprised not only my guests, but also Tracy by pulling out my phone and posting on Facebook and Twitter from the altar during out wedding. I had her phone ready in my pocket, so when she asked for it I could hand it to her. No one knew about this except the minister, and myself.
