Real Wedding Planner Advice: Socialize Your Wedding!
The day you said “Yes” and posted your ring on Facebook is probably the day you received the most comments and likes on your timeline. Here’s how to keep that exciting momentum going and take your wedding communication and information to your guests, wedding party and vendors to a whole new level.

Create a private group event for your guests and list important date announcements. Periodically post important details such as venues,
menu options and even colors of the bridesmaid dresses – we’ve heard one too many horror stories of guests feeling awkward because they wore the same color as the bridal party simply because the didn’t know. Ask your guests for input, you will not only get some great ideas but will also make them feel included.
Some people make a separate Facebook page or a special website for their wedding altogether! Don’t forget to “like” and/or “follow” the pages of all of the vendors you and your event planner are working with. By following them, you might be privy to sales and new items that you would otherwise not see.
Pinterest is a fantastic way to create style boards that you can share with your event planner, wedding party and guests. You can create specific boards and even shared boards for other users to pin ideas to!
At your wedding, include signage or an announcement for guests to visit your website, or friend/like your page on Facebook so they can all view the photos and write special messages.
While traditional print and keepsake items are still expected and a necessity on your special day, social media can certainly bring a whole new digital dynamic to make your wedding informative, creative and fun!
Thumbs up – with bling!
