Survey Shows the Majority of Brides Would Be Cool With People Wearing Google Glass to Document Their Wedding

I’m going to assume that most of you are familiar with the bizarre face computer that is Google Glass—a device that is sadly being made no less bizarre by Diane von Furstenberg’s rendering of it, even though Diane von Fursetenberg is perfection—but I never would have assumed, prior to reading these stats that I am about to share, is that you, bride, would be way into someone wearing it at your wedding in order to capture every magical moment.




David's Bridal does a survey every year called "What's On Brides' Minds" through an outside research company (reaching over 500 recently engaged or married American women above the age of 18), and this year, as a sign of the times, I guess, they included a question asking brides if they would want Google Glass perched upon the faces of their nearest and dearest at their wedding in order to document both the ceremony and reception.

Eighty-one percent of them said yes, people! And it gets even better: When the brides were asked whose faces, exactly, should be donning this technology, here's what they said (please note that percentages add up to more than 100 percent because the respondents were able to check off more than one person):

  • 43 percent said their wedding guests

  • 40 percent said their wedding party  

  • 31 percent said their significant other 

  • 29 percent said heck, they'd rock it themselves

So there you have it. And now we are curious: What category do you fall into? Also: If someone has Google Glass present at their upcoming nuptials, please, we ask—document that.

    This is the stupidest poll I’ve ever seen. What bride gets to dictate the eyewear of her guests? And if she doesn’t like it, too damn bad. Boo hoo. It is crap like this that has created Bridezillas.
