Would You Twitter From Your Wedding?

Do you remember the groom (and bride) who updated their facebook status from engaged to married in the middle of their wedding ceremony?

Since then a number of discussions have begun on whether it's okay for the bride and groom, as well as their guests, to tweet or update their facebook accounts from a wedding. I'm in the camp of no, because you should enjoy your wedding day with your family and friends who are at your wedding celebrating with you. You can always update your facebook account with pictures from the wedding (and honeymoon) after the big day. Your facebook friends will still see them - it's okay if they have to wait for the pictures. After all, if they were close friends wouldn't they have been invited to the wedding?

Anyway, here's an article I was interviewed for in this weekend's New York Newsday on tweeting and updating facebook at your wedding. There are some examples of how brides use Twitter on their wedding day and the idea of assigning someone as the official Twitter-er for your wedding.
