Finally! A Social Media Etiquette Guide for weddings. As phone pics, videos, wedding aps, Instagram, Snapchat & hashtags are increasingly inching their way into weddings, brides and grooms are wanting to take some control over the situation.

Mindy Weiss and yours truly were interviewed to set the record straight when it comes to social media 'do's and don'ts' at a wedding. Click here forThe Rules of Social Media & enjoy! 

 

 
 
“At some of our celebrity weddings, we’ve had cell phone check-in stations, beautiful—but direct—signage at the entrance of the ceremony addressing the issue of no social media, a note on the program, and the officiant has announced it, and still, there is always someone who feels the need to pull out their cell phone to take a photo,” says celebrity wedding planner and owner of Fête Nashville, Sara Fried.

“Wedding hashtags are such a fun way to easily search pictures from the wedding,” says Fried. “If the client is up for social media sharing, then they’ve probably come up with a witty, fun wedding hashtag that speaks to their personalities.”

“If the couple is okay with sharing, wait until the guests have had their chance to enjoy the moment,” says Fried. “For example, wait until the cake cutting to post photos of the cake.”

There are always exceptions to the rule! We definitely approve these littles playing on their iPads while they wait patiently for the ceremony to start...
