So­cial me­dia plan

Life & Style Weekend - - FASHION -

You may have not even signed the mar­riage cer­tifi­cate be­fore pho­tos and videos of your nup­tials are snapchat­ted or tweeted to peo­ple you’ve never met. Un­plugged wed­dings are be­com­ing ever­more pop­u­lar with brides and grooms ask­ing their guests to re­frain from tak­ing pho­tos and putting them on so­cial me­dia dur­ing their day. Why else do you hire a pho­tog­ra­pher? If you wish for your guests to re­frain from post­ing on so­cial me­dia, check out this quick guide on things to do: It may be a good idea to tell them on the in­vi­ta­tion that your nup­tials are un­plugged and you'd like them to just en­joy the in­ti­mate mo­ment rather than broad­cast it with a hash­tag. Have a sign re­mind­ing guests on the day there are no cam­eras, phones, so­cial me­dia posts or per­son­alised wed­ding hash­tags un­til the fol­low­ing day. Ask the cel­e­brant to an­nounce it be­fore the cer­e­mony. Re­mind your guests they can get prints of the pro­fes­sional pho­tos taken on the day. Re­mem­ber, post­ing on so­cial me­dia is sec­ond na­ture for some and they only want to share the lovely mo­ments with all their friends and fam­ily. If you have no qualms about guests snap­ping and in­sta­gram­ming away at the heart's de­sire, it may be best to cre­ate your own hash­tag to track down all those pho­tos. In­clude your hash­tag on your wed­ding in­vite - for ex­am­ple, #jone­smith­wed­ding2017.
