1. Create A Hashtag
Let’s face it, people LOVE hashtags. We love them so much that we use them in conversation and even put them on clothing. So you know your guests will love adding your wedding hashtag to everything they post. It’s an easy way to look back at the fun everyone had, too!
2. Use Social Media Stories To Tell Your Planning Story
Why wait until the wedding to integrate social media? Start from the very beginning. With Facebook Live, Instagram Stories, and Snapchat, you’ve got the world at your fingertips. Show your friends and family all the behind-the-scenes moments of your planning.
3. Allow/Ask Guests To Guest Post For You
Here’s a fun one – get your guests really involved! Do a series of guest posts on your Facebook/Instagram/whatever you choose and let your guests talk about your wedding. It’s definitely a fun way to get them involved, and you might be interested in what they come up with!
4. Do A Weekly Vlog
Doing a quick video each week is the perfect way to keep your guests updated on wedding details, make close family and friends feel like they’re truly involved in your planning, and is an AWESOME stress-reliever. Plus, it’ll be fun to look back at how much you got done, and the fun you had.
5. Go Unplugged For The Ceremony
This is a big one! There are so many reasons already for having an unplugged ceremony, but you can add this one to the list. Having an unplugged ceremony means that no one will be photographing, recording, or posting anything for a little while, which is going to make guests want to do it even more later. Going unplugged WILL increase social media output for the reception.
