Like height Approaches During Weddings Some people are turning to artificial intelligence for help with their obstacles. Yes, ChatGPT can spin those awkward wedding vows into something poetic or add some humor to that toast.
Turning to a chatbot to express your deepest feelings can feel cold, lazy, or dystopian. But those who use the technology say it can help overcome writer’s block because of the high expectations set for a special day. Some people are becoming comfortable using AI in the most intimate aspects of their lives.
To some, using ChatGPT for help with difficult words like wedding vows may sound like a joke, but it produces phrases that defy expectations. Michelle Albert, who lives in Seattle, said she asked the groomer to write the vows, expecting something funny. Instead, the result was delicious, even if it was generic. She flaunts her fiance’s intelligence, kindness, and beauty and drops the clichés, “I love you beyond words.”
Still, the unexpected flurry piqued Albert’s interest and prompted her to begin writing a personal vow. “The best use case for me is inspiration,” says Albert. She used ChatGPT to learn how to have difficult conversations with family and friends about downsizing her wedding, which means some of her loved ones won’t be invited. She and her fiancé used the bot to plan their five-day honeymoon in Hawaii.
Joy, a popular wedding planning website and app, now has an AI tool to help overcome writer’s block built on ChatGPT. The drop-down menu allows people to choose from many options, including writing speeches and toasts, crafting thank-you notes, and creating funny wedding hashtags, such as “#MyOhMaui” for a wedding in Hawaii or a special occasion in pirate style.
Joy CEO and founder Vishal Joshi says he understands the initial apprehension some feel about using AI for such personal touches. “Are we trying to do something that’s so sensitive and so personal — are we trying to automate it?” says Joshi. “We had that fight.”
But some Joy users seem to have overcome any problems. The AI features have become the most popular tasks since the release of the vows and toasts in March, says Joshi. He sees fit that long before AI came on the scene, many people struggled to express their feelings on their wedding day. “Getting these feelings down on paper is a lot harder than any of us think,” says Joshi.
To generate conversations, Joy prompts the user to provide a memorable story about the couple and their relationship, such as how they met or details of the first time someone met their future in-laws. For vows, the app asks a person to highlight what they like most about their partner. You can then choose a delivery style by directing the system to generate something from a friend, Shakespeare or an old disappointment. A vow suggestion begins in the playwright’s style: “To stroll on the shore before us, I’ll give you the world to share, My values of rest and happiness match me, That’s so rare.”
As with any ChatGPT-type bot shouts, AI-generated vows or utterances may include tales that may not be true. In WIRED’s tests, it may take several tries and edits before ChatGPT includes enough details or memory about the pair.
