NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  TheKnot.com, the number-one online wedding planning destination, and Mashable.com, the leading source for news, information and resources for the Connected Generation, today revealed the results of their first-ever co-branded social and tech wedding planning survey, #SocialWeddingSurvey. With 2 million millennials tying the knot, this exclusive survey gives insight into how brides decide to share their weddings socially and what tech elements they're utilizing as they plan for the big day.

"Brides have been relying on the Internet to privately plan their weddings for more than a decade, but with the rise of the share button, we were interested to see that the rules of wedding etiquette are evolving," says Carley Roney, editor in chief of TheKnot.com. "The tides are changing, and the comfort level of sharing a once-private act so publicly increases every day."

"Mashable's lifestyle coverage is focused on inspiring our community to make the best use of technology for their personal lives. With the help of The Knot, this survey continues this mission by giving our community great insight into the way technology has changed how people plan, celebrate and remember weddings," says Andrea Smith, lifestyle editor at Mashable. 

Highlights From TheKnot.com & Mashable.com #SocialWeddingSurvey Include:

Brides Utilize Facebook Status Updates.

While 1 in 10 (8%) brides are updating their Facebook relationship statuses within minutes, nearly 1 in 3 (31%) did so within hours of getting engaged and the large majority (63%) have updated it by the day after. At the same time, nearly 7 in 10 (69%) newlyweds on Facebook have updated their relationship status by the day after their wedding.  

Brides are also very interested in sharing wedding planning progress with their social networks before the wedding, though many of their friends or followers are not invited. Gone is that faux pas! More than half (51%) shared planning progress status updates, and 1 in 4 (26%) shared photos of wedding elements during the planning process.
