Technology changes the way we celebrate life’s biggest milestones… including weddings. As the social world has seemingly gravitated online, weddings have followed suit. Today, personalised wedding hashtags, wedding websites, and Instagrammable photo opportunities now dominate how couples celebrate and catalogue their most memorable moments. However, no technology trend seems to dominate the wedding scene more than 3D printing.

The Daily Mail focused on 3D printing in its story How 3D printed bridal dresses are about to change the face of wedding fashion, so what is 3D printing, why is it so popular, and is it really revolutionising weddings?

3D printing is a specialised printer that actually creates a three-dimensional image. Printers create solid forms layer by layer, and the final creation is later used to craft more detailed sculptures and designs. Yes, even wedding dresses. Many couples use this specialised printing process to create custom cake toppers, as well as wedding favours and wedding rings.

For custom wedding or engagement rings, 3D printers are used to create the custom mold that is then transformed into the final piece. In the past, jewellers had to actually hand-create the mold for every custom design and the task was arduous and expensive. Today, however, 3D printing allows jewellers to easily produce the custom design mold, saving time and money for buyers.

While custom designed rings were typically reserved for wealthier buyers, today most couples can afford to design their dream rings. So if you’ve always wanted a custom one-of-a-kind engagement ring or matching wedding bands, hunt down a jeweller with 3D printing design capabilities.

However, 3D printing is just the tip of the technology wedding transformation. There are so many ways to add tech-savvy touches to create your Wedding of the Future. From livestreaming the vows to adding a GoPro in your bouquet to capture your trip down the aisle; check out this infographic for all the amazing ways to give your wedding a tech upgrade.
