Social Media & A Wedding?

Social media is present in the vast majority of weddings today, and bride’s need to recognize its potential harm. Major decisions such as the bride’s gown and invitations are frequently made and announced via Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and texting. Despite the ease, be very cautious of who may actually see your information.

So, in order to prevent Social Media from ruining your wedding, may we suggest some basic guidelines? 1. Do not post every detail: Unless you have unlimited wealth and plan to invite every friend you have, resist the temptation to post details of every milestone such as when you purchase your dress, mail invitations, and so on. It can become quite awkward for those acquaintances who are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their invitation, yet you consider them only online friends. Did you see this cringe-worthy recent piece online? http://blog.theknot.com/2014/08/11/bride-burns-un-invited-facebook-friends-what-not-to-do/ 2. Be a woman of mystery: You need to keep an element of surprise. Leave the specifics for the big day instead of divulging too much on social media. A bride wants her guests to look forward to the event, rather than compare it to the photos previously posted online. 3. Gently discourage phones during the ceremony & celebration: As tempting as it is for your guests to post photos of your wedding day online immediately, they need to understand you have hired or delegated an individual to take photographs. What bride wants to see less than flattering pictures online? Ask your guests to think before posting. Ask your wedding party to spread the word…

The most important rule for all wedding guests to remember is do not say or print anything that is simply not flattering. Good manners are always in style!
