Social media plan
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.
