Instaglam your wedding...

There is no doubt that I am addicted to social media, it can get a little unhealthy at times. Social Media however has became an integral part of daily life whether we like it or not...it's here to stay. 

Within weddings social media usage has seen a drastic rise over the past few years with more and more brides seeking wedding day inspiration through blogs and various other online platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram.

Below I have shared some fun nstagram uses for your wedding day and how you and your guests can use them to create some long lasting memories.

Instagram, our most loved photo sharing app, is a perfect way for collecting all the guests snaps and collating them into one search. Using a hashtag # for couple allows guests to upload photos instantly 'capturing the moment' using a customised hashtag #kimandkanye2014 for example. This method of customising your hashtag # allows all the photos to be stored in one place, to sit back and enjoy at a later date. 

If you aren't too keen on the hashtag idea you can always create a wedding instagram profile which your guests can follow and see updates of what's been happening in the run-up and on your special day! 

Once you have created your hashtag #kimandkanye2014, let your guests know so they can add photos and get involved, you could do this by adding it onto the invites, cards to hand out at the ceremony, alternatively you can incorporate it into your event design, many couples nowadays have framed signs which allow guests to see what hashtag to use for the wedding day. 

Another quirky idea for wedding props is the personalised Instagram frame which is popping up all over pinterest recently,. These are fun frames which allow guests to take photos from, it also highlights the hashtag for your guests to use and shows you are social media savvy!
