We have talked in the past about our favourite wedding blogs and how they can help you with your wedding planning. However, the online resources that can help you plan your big day go beyond just blogs, so here’s a few ways in which you can plan your wedding using social media.
If you have not yet discovered the wonder of Pinterest you must have been hiding under a rock! It’s the absolute best way to collate your ideas, source inspiration and find things you might never have even dreamed about before. When done properly, images may well take you back to the original blog or website they were published on, which can help you find a whole army of inspiring people to follow. Consider it your virtual scrapbook in which you can make mood boards and obsess over pretty little details.
We love using Facebook to find and track great wedding suppliers who use this form of social media to keep the world updated with their latest news and examples of their work. Given that we’re all on Facebook all of the time, it’s a fantastic way of keeping your finger on the pulse and obviously it’s the easiest way to share info with your friends and wedding guests, too.
Another visual channel but such a lovely insight into the world of weddings, Instagram is definitely where it’s at these days. From behind-the-scenes peeks of what wedding suppliers are doing to immaculate styling and photography that might just inspire the shape of your wedding, Instagram is a very real addiction. You can also end up disappearing down a rabbit hole of loveliness as you track who the people you’re following are following and discover even more greatness!
If you’re hot on Facebook, you might not ‘get’ Twitter, but think of it as your chance to get answers to your questions. It’s an amazing resource for connecting with people – from other like-minded brides to bloggers who can offer a world of inspiration – and you never know who you might find there. Whether you want to ask for recommendations, query advice you’ve been given or seek out certain products, Twitter is the place to do it. The wedding industry is a really strong, supportive voice on Twitter so you might soon wonder how you got by without it.
