Don't Let Facebook Ruin Your Wedding

Melanie and Alex:  The Arbor Room Wedding Reception

For many couples, being able to announce their engagement and wedding plans on social media is a given.  Whether it is creating hashtags to use for photos and tweets, or building a full blown wedding site, social media makes sharing your day with the world even easier.

However, as with most public affairs, there are some Do’s and Don’ts.  So keep in mind the simple courtesies!




For the Bride and Groom

  • Tell your family members about your engagement in person or by phone before posting it on social  media.
  • Keep the wedding apparel a secret until the day of the wedding.  No posting bridal photos on Instagram or Facebook before the big day.
  • Unless every single one of your Facebook friends is invited, you may want to keep your wedding status updates to a minimum.
  • Consider streaming the event using Skype for family members who can't attend the ceremony.
  • Send personal Thank You notes to guests, not tweets, posts, or emails -- they really are not appreciated as much.

For Guests

  • Don't share any news of the wedding until the Bride and Groom have posted publically online.
  • Turn off your phone's audio during the ceremony.
  • Be mindful of the wedding photographer, stay seated during the ceremony and do not raise your phone overhead.
  • Private message any wedding plan questions, you don't want people who weren't invited to be hurt.
