Couple to exchange vows by SMS
A Belgian couple are to get married by SMS because text messaging has played such a big part in their relationship, reports Ananova.
"Ronald Bollen, 39, and Ingrid Peeters, 43, will exchange vows by SMS but then sign the registry in the traditional way to make sure the wedding is legal."
Wedding vows by SMS is a first I think. The closest thing I have heard of, related to text messaging and mariage, is of a Singapore company called Etact Solutions, which offers to send out wedding invitations by SMS and to handle the RSVPs. (cf Firm invites wedding RSVPs by text)
