When you’re planning a wedding, the internet can be your best friend. You can find plenty of ideas, inspiration and advice to help you plan the perfect day. That doesn’t always mean though that you want it to actually be involved on your wedding day. Take a look at our guide to modern wedding planning to find out what you need to consider when it comes to the internet and your wedding...
Do You Say #IDo to Social Media?
Take time to talk with your partner about how big of a part you want social media to play in your wedding. If you’re both prolific users of social media, it might be fun to create your own wedding hashtag to share with your guests so you can see all of the images and updates they tag with it. You might even find yourself trending! If you don’t like the idea of your Facebook friends seeing pictures before you, then add a polite note in your wedding invitations or ask your celebrant to mention it at the ceremony to deter your guests.
