Ways to Use a Selfie Stick at a Wedding - Yes, Without Getting Selfie-ish

Don’t you dare call the selfie fans vain or narcissistic (let’s just stick to awesome)! We don’t expect everyone at the wedding to go cuckoo over clicking photos, but we also don’t particularly like those relatives who think it’s a ‘silly fad’. This robotic arm version of an eye-roll, aka the selfie stick, has evolved into a runaway hit at the wedding. You might get a bit of skepticism initially, but it is sure to be embraced like an old friend by the time you dance on the last song of the reception. Yeah, the much-maligned selfie sticks are indispensable; however, it is crucial to use them responsibly and not go jumping all over the place.

Let’s look at a few tips to decode the responsible use of selfie sticks.

Remember you paid big bucks for that fancy photographer? When the photographer is trying to take a shot, it’s a wise thing to not flaunt your selfie stick. Yes, even if you are the bride. We understand you are going bonkers over it, but that piece of technology could severely damage the sentimentality of a classic wedding photo. The photographer is trying hard to get a good shot, so don’t hesitate to let them warn you when you are getting too obsessed with the stick.

Just because you are the bride or the groom, you cannot carry the selfie stick down the aisle. Isn’t that a bit aloof? You could opt for an unplugged wedding if you want to concentrate on selfies and make sure your guests aren't ruining the ceremony photos as they stick their arms in the air trying to get their own pictures (haha, that’s karma for you). You need to know that it is NOT OK to ruin a photo with your insanity.

 

Be Aware of Your Facial Expressions

Okay, you could be the sexy or cool boho chic in your selfies. But please don’t become the butt of jokes with your excitement. Be aware of what your face is doing! Whether you are trying to slip into the ‘OMG’ pout mode or the ‘I'm-so-excited’ gear with an open mouth, it is crucial to get a reality check every now and then. You don’t want to regret not taking normal pictures later and curse yourself for not clicking a single photo with your mouth close.

Just because the guests are ok with selfie shenanigans, you cannot go the selfish way! You could definitely get some truly share-worthy pictures with a selfie stick, but don’t get so crazy with it (forgetting the action around and real moments). If you are the bridesmaid, the couple won’t be very pleased if your cool gadget distracts them from their special day. The idea is to keep it low key and not get on a bench to capture the perfect selfie.

If you are the bride and dare to pout and pucker your way down the aisle, the selfie stick can do wonders. Even if you are not, you have the license to sashay down the mandap with your magic stick, but keep it a bit sane as you don’t want to ruin someone’s special day. So, without further ado, click click…smile please!
