SOCIAL MEDIA POSTERITY

The hipster would not exist without social media. The hipster couple repays this debt with a token offering. Many a hipster couple has set up a designated area so their photographer friend may take pictures that resemble those from a photo booth — in some cases, an actual photo booth — and plaster them on Facebook. The iPhone, too, has its place at the hipster wedding. There's no need to leave technology at home when there's minutiae to document. Recently, a Chicago hipster has been photographed dancing crazily at several area hipster weddings with an iPhone. The video said hipster took, as well as iPhone photos of said hipster, are now housed on Facebook and Flickr.

Accordingly, a number of Web sites devoted to the hipster wedding have sprung up with names such as Offbeat Bride and Style Me Pretty. Married hipsters, fear not: you can weigh in on their forums, lending your expertise about which tandem bicycle best accommodates a bustle.

Social media has generated much of the hipster wedding accoutrements. Would mustache on a stick exist without Facebook? Would labeled pies? It's doubtful. Thanks, Facebook.
