Right now, it appears to solely exist at four W Hotels in New York, and we only know about it because Bianca Bosker, tech editor at The Huffington Post, tweeted a press release she received from the chain:

Do You Know What You're Worth?

Bosker’s response to the release? “$3,000 ‘social media wedding concierge’ will come up with a #hashtag for you. please stop.”

Opinions on the internet ranged from “please do not pay someone $3,000 to live-tweet your wedding” to “this finally exists!” (OK, that last one was somewhat tongue-in-cheek.)

If this is your dream job, take heart, however: new social media gigs are popping up all the time. “Social media wedding concierge” isn’t a big enough field yet to say for certain how one should prepare for it, but the typical social media manager has a bachelor’s degree in communications and is good at making friends, both on- and offline, as well as developing connections, managing followers, and keeping up-to-date on the latest trends and tools in the social media space.

We’d guess that a social media wedding concierge would also have to be pretty good at taking pictures of wedding cakes — with or without fancy filters.
