When planning a wedding, using social media sites may not be the first thing you think of, but going online can actually be a great way to prepare for and share memories of your big day.
Not only can websites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest help you plan your wedding, they can also help to keep costs down. Read on to find out how social media could help make your nuptials a great success...
Spread the word
Working to a tight budget? You could forgo traditional invitations or save the date cards and instead create a website or blog dedicated to your wedding. You'll not only save on stationery, but you can also inform your guests quickly and easily if schedules change. A wedding blog is a great way to make friends and family to feel involved in the countdown to the big day.
Create a wedding moodboard
Pinterest is a brilliant tool for brides-to-be as it allows you to create boards where you can pin ideas for different wedding themes, dresses, cakes, hairstyles and any other bits and bobs for your wedding. You can even pin videos on how to make DIY centrepieces, favours and wedding decorations.
Research wedding suppliers
Websites provide a quick and easy way to find wedding suppliers, in your area, without having to leave the comfort of your home. Using online search tools allow you to compare prices and read reviews from other people who have used the services. This is a great way to find the best suppliers before arranging meetings to discuss how they could help you achieve your dream big day.
After saying 'I do', it may be some time before you receive the official pictures from your photographer but it is likely many of your friends have lots of snaps. Asking loved ones to upload their photos to a shared group on Facebook or a joint Instagram account can be a great way to bring together memories from your big day. Equally, once the professional shots come back, uploading them online is a nice and simple way to allow guests to see the photographs.
