Here’s a new wedding expense to file under things you never knew you didn’t need: Social Media Wedding Concierge.

In an email making the rounds on Twitter, W Hotels in New York is offering a new concierge service, including “unique wedding #hashtag”, to couples celebrating their reception at any of the W Hotels in New York.

According to the release, "It’s time to say goodbye to shameless wedding selfies and hello to a professional Social Media Wedding Concierge…"

For a mere $3,000 a social media expert will live-tweet the entire wedding, maintain a wedding blog and help create a “dream honeymoon Pinterest board to inspire the couple," among other perks.

Tech Editor Bianca Bosker at the Huffington Post posted a picture of the pitch to her Twitter account sparking some responses.
