    • Yes, this is the modern techy age! Everyone just about has a smart phone or tablet, iPad, ect.. Yes, lots of brides are using Apps such a Pinterest ( especially!) for tons of inspiration for their wedding planning.

      I have seen the trend of brides and grooms utilizing a certain hashtag on Instagram. Especially, for their guests to post pics in real time during the wedding celebration. I prefer a unplugged wedding myself! Especially, as the bride or Groom are getting dressed!


    • Very true, I once had a guest post all the wedding pictures before the photographer had a chance to and the couple was upset. The couple needs to state clearly if they want these outlets. But lately I have send a trend of posting during the reception. The ceremony, I feel is a sacred moment and a couple should ask guest to “Unplug”.

  1. Such a great idea to have a hashtag for your wedding, especially with a site like Instagram. I would be dying to see all of the pictures my guests had taken!

  2. Great post! When we got married – we actually got a wedding photo page through shutterfly & made up cards on the tables telling people to upload the pictures they took to that webpage – it was so nice to see everyone’s wedding pictures in one place!
