Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada using social media as part of their wedding celebration
Chad Ochocinco of the Miami Dolphins got married on July 4th, and he took to his twitter account keeping his 3,571,273 followers updated before, during and after his wedding to fiancé Evelyn Lozada. This NFL player is not alone when it comes to this trend in social media and marriage!
The 2012 David’s Bridal’s “What on Brides’ Mind Survey” Reveals:
Two-thirds (66%) of brides admit that social media was, or will be, a part of their celebrations.
Nearly half (49%) of brides admit that they did or will update their Facebook status to “married” between the wedding and reception.
Facebook isn’t the only social media site getting in on the action. Twitpics and mobile uploads (23%), play-by-play updates (17%), and guest check-ins on Foursquare (13%) allow far-away guests to feel like a part of the festivities, too.
Chad’s tweets included:
What if @EvelynLozada is a runaway bride when I get out there and I’m stuck looking good all by myself… did I mention looking good?
I’m breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class right now… I was hoping continuing to tweet with y’all support would calm me down
Here we go…. Proverbs 18:22… I love you guys… If I do it right the 1st time I won’t have to do it again… Turn up…
Y’all still there? How many times is Eve gonna change outfits… Is this normal to have more than 1 outfit besides the wedding gown?
Well…she’s on outfit #4 and i’m stuck in this damn tux
