It’s pretty typical for couples to update their relationship statuses on Facebook after their weddings but two newlyweds who reportedly whipped out their cellphones seconds after exchanging their vows to change their status in front of guests are being shamed online.

An image of the reportedly “tacky” moment was shared to the Facebook group, That’s It, I’m Wedding Shaming, according to the Daily Mail .

The photo, posted on the Facebook group last week, seemed to show the couple typing on their cellphones as their officiant and wedding guests look on.

“Instead of doing a unity candle or sand ceremony, Danielle & James changed their Facebook statuses to ‘married,'” the photo’s caption read.

Members of the wedding shaming Facebook group slammed the couple, who are believed to be from the U.S.

“This is tacky but also no one wants to watch you do a unity sand ceremony or candle,” one person wrote.

Others found the moment hilarious, with another person writing, “I mean, most wedding traditions are super outdated so if they meant it as a joke then I think it’s pretty funny.”

But a few doubted the image’s caption and wondered if the couple were just reading their vows from their cellphones.

“Did they though? Or did they have their vows typed on their phones?” one person wrote. “I’d personally prefer to use a piece of paper but reading vows off a phone isn’t too uncommon nowadays.”
