June 1st, 2023

Social media is a great tool to connect with your guests, showcase your personality, and document your special day. Don’t know where to begin? We’ve put together a list of some ways you can use social media to make your wedding day extra special and memorable.

Create a #Hashtag

You can create a unique hashtag for your wedding and encourage your guests to use it when they post photos or videos. This way, you can easily see all the posts related to your wedding in one place. You can also use your hashtag to create a live feed of your wedding on a screen or projector at your venue. Some tips for creating a hashtag are to make it catchy, memorable, and easy to spell; include your names or initials; avoid using numbers or symbols; and check if it’s already taken by someone else.

Make a Website

A website is a great way to share information about your wedding with your guests. You can use a website to provide details about your venue, date, time, dress code, registry, accommodation, transportation, and more. You can also use a website to collect RSVPs, share your love story, post photos and videos of your engagement and pre-wedding events, and update your guests on any changes or announcements. There are many platforms that allow you to create a beautiful and easy-to-use website for your wedding.

Use Stories

Stories are short videos or photos that disappear after 24 hours on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, or Facebook. You can use stories to share behind-the-scenes moments of your wedding planning process, such as choosing your dress, tasting cakes, or visiting venues. You can also use stories to share sneak peeks of your wedding day, such as getting ready, walking down the aisle, or having fun at the reception. Stories are a fun and interactive way to engage with your guests and make them feel part of your journey.

Hire a Social Media Coordinator

If you want to use social media for your wedding but don’t have the time or energy to do it yourself, you can hire a professional social media coordinator. A social media coordinator is someone who manages your social media accounts before, during, and after your wedding. They can help you create a hashtag, make a website, post stories, take photos and videos and, interact with your guests online. A social media coordinator can take the stress off you and let you focus on enjoying your big day.

Social media is a great way to involve your friends and family in your wedding planning process. It can also be used to share your love story with the world. You can use these ways and more to use social media to your advantage when planning your wedding.  Happy Planning!
