Needless to say, the way in which couples meet in the 21st century, is significantly different from the way previous generations first met. We are seeing more and more how technological and social norms have changed the way people date more than ever before.
Millennials have begun using the latest and (some might say) more convenient means of technology. For many people in this day and age, meeting ‘the one’ isn’t usually a priority and takes somewhat of a back seat to career and other responsibilities. This mentality and ethos is exactly why we are seeing an increase in couples who have met their other halves on apps such as Tinder, Plenty of Fish and Match.com.
Having algorithms help you sift through millions of potential partners based on your likes, dislikes and compatibility is becoming more favourable for people with a fast-paced lifestyle. There seems to be something appealing and compelling about being able to scroll through your devices in the comfort of your own home, or even on the go.
In contrast to this, our social behaviours have also adapted and become more suited to our work and social environments. We gather together after our daily work grind to unwind with colleagues and friends and this is also known to be the perfect meeting environment; it can be an ideal setting to socialise and become acquainted with like-minded individuals from the same circles and who have common interests.
As time moves on and we reform to cater to our needs, society changes the ways that we interact. In our role as wedding planners, we are reminded how unique and niche each of our couples are. We therefore try to gauge an understanding of our client’s story, ensuring we really get to know you, so that we can truly take into consideration your individuality and how we can create a day that is equally as personalised as you.
