Rant or Rave: Polling Your Wedding Guests

In the era of Facebook status updates, MySpace bulletins and Twitter mania, we are all used to posting our every thought online and getting instant feedback from friends and family members. As a result, it shouldn’t be too big of a shock that some couples have even started using social media as a key decision-making tool during the wedding planning process.

We’ve heard stories about engaged couples using online polls to ask family and friends to determine what food, drinks and music they would like at the reception, how the bride should wear her hair and even whether or not the groom should shave his head for the big day.

Are you polling your guests to help plan your wedding? Do you trust them to make decisions on your behalf? Can online polling save you time and hassle, or does it take some of the fun out of wedding planning?

Does polling your wedding guests make you want to rant or rave?

    I think polling your guests is a cop-out. Can you really not decide your hairstyle for yourself?

    Polling your guests makes perfect sense if you are asking about the menu or music selection for your reception, but I would keep more personal decisions between the bride and groom.
