Hashtag Queen: 6 Ways To Include Social Media In Your Wedding

Do friends and family constantly berate you for living life through an iPhone? Well, it’s only fitting that you incorporate social media into every moment of your wedding day! Here’s six ways you can turn your nuptials into a modern-day fairytale.

Create Your Own Wedding #Hashtag

From your hen party to the big day itself, adding your own hashtag will give your wedding its very own online stream. Now that’s darling!

Allocate An Online Space For Friends To Upload Snaps

Although your photographer might do an outstanding job at capturing the highlights from your special day, the chances of them arriving within a month of your wedding is slim. Your guests will more than likely have captured a host of different elements and natural angles from the day. Why not ask them to share some moments on Dropbox? There will be some great shenanigans from the night that you may be totally unaware of. No doubt you’ll get a good giggle from these random snaps.

Facebook Live

Facebook Live is a great way to include family and friends living abroad in your special day. Unfortunately, they may not have been able to travel and join in your celebrations, but thanks to Facebook, you can assign a member of the wedding party to record some highlights and broadcast it online.

Create A Wedding Website

Wedding websites are mega helpful when it comes to managing your guest list. You can easily upload all your wedding day info in one easily-accessible place to ensure friends and family have a gist of how the day will run.

Hire Your Very Own Social Media Team

Are you made for the Insta-famous life? If hiring a selfie mirror doesn’t cut it, you could hire a personalized social media team to live-tweet, video, Boomerang and post about your wedding day in real-time.
