Love + Relationships | Katie Couric Gets Married: Stats About Their Modern Marriage‏


loveandrelationships_logo

This past weekend Katie Couric and her new husband, John Molner, tied the knot among family and friends, and their intimate affair was a true testament to modern marriage in the making.

Since this wedding marked a second for both parties, they were much more relaxed when it came to the planning. Katie actually trusted in her finance-savvy groom to handle the details of the day and even gave him the final say when it came to selecting the gown she’d walk down the aisle in (a decision she made only a week before her wedding). According to the David’s Bridal “What’s on Brides’ Minds” survey, Katie and John follow in the footsteps of many modern couples who aren’t following traditions when it comes to their special day:

  • Letting her groom take the reins: Katie reversed traditional planning conventions, giving John the power to call the shots on their nuptial celebration – a cue that many brides are taking, with 83 percent of present-day grooms actively getting involved in making wedding day decisions, according to the survey.
  • #SocialMediaSavvy: Katie proved that it pays to have a social media strategy on the big day. She kept her followers up-to-date with wedding preparations on Instagram. And, although she took a hiatus from Twitter right before the wedding, she made sure to announce her new marital status minutes after she became Mrs. Molner – tweeting “So excited to make my debut as Mrs. John Molner!” She was the first to post, keeping up with the 58 percent of brides that believe the couple should be the first to post a photo from the wedding.
  • She’s keeping her name! Even though Katie proudly strutted her new married name via social media channels, she’ll be keeping her famous last name for professional, recognition, purposes. Interestingly, her progressive decision to “keep the Couric” stands in opposition to the 71 percent of brides that have or will be taking their partner’s last name after the wedding.

The Molners are also right on trend with the many couples opting for shorter engagements, making it official less than a year after he proposed. Finding no reason to wait too long to take their vows, these “Insta-wedding” couples are becoming the standard, not the exception.
