Weddings all over the Internet
With Instagram, Facebook, Tweets, and more it only takes one cell phone to make your wedding go viral, public and permanent on social media. While this can be a very exciting time to share, there is no doubt that you lose some control of what is presented to others. Here are our thoughts to stay ahead in order to look your best, whatever your preferences may be:
Fun & Creative Display
If you would like your guests to post photos of your wedding day, let them know how to share it. The fun thing about this is viewing all of the moments happening throughout your day that you may not be able to see otherwise. Also know there will be photos of you out there so be on your best behavior You can share your hashtag on your wedding website, your own social networking sites, and shower and rehearsal dinner invitations. On the big day itself, display it in a fun and creative way (perhaps a chalkboard with fun writing by the bar). Doing this should help keep all or most of your photos in the same place.
Keep Me Offline Please
If you’re a more private couple and prefer to not have photos shared (an “unplugged” wedding), there are ways to handle this in a gracious and original way without offending anyone. Pinterest has hundreds of simple ideas to share this message with guests via signs; you can also put something in print in your ceremony program. Pick a close and honest friend to give you feedback on this before you put this out!
