There’s a good chance you’re already using Pinterest or Instagram to find wedding inspiration, but have you considered incorporating social media into the day itself? Embracing social media at your wedding is a fun way to give guests a creative outlet and see their personalities shine. Whether you’re hoping your wedding will go viral or you’re just looking for some creative ways to share your special day, these unique ideas will ensure your big day is getting shared.
Make a Short-Form Video for Your Wedding
More and more couples are creating shareable, short-form wedding videos that are going viral. Now, we won’t debate with you whether TikTok or Instagram Reels is better, but we will say that we are loving the creativity on both platforms. If you’re willing to put in the extra time to create one of these videos, we promise this will be a fun project that the whole wedding party can join in on. A few video ideas that work well for weddings are lip-sync challenges, dance challenges, and wedding look transformations.
Create a Personalized Wedding Hashtag
These days there are so many social media platforms and so much content that it’s easy for your posts to get lost in the feed. Make sure to wrangle up your wedding day posts by creating a personalized hashtag and asking guests to attach it to all of their postings. Get creative with your fiancé by combining your names, utilizing puns, or adding dates to make your hashtag unique to you. Just make sure that it’s easy for your guests to spell or it might not get used properly.
Design a Custom Snapchat Filter
If you’re familiar with Snapchat, you may have noticed that some filters are only available to use in certain locations. These filters are known as geofilters and you can create a custom one for your guests to use at your wedding. Just follow this easy-to-follow guide on how to create your own. You’ll need to include the geographic location of your wedding, how long you would like the filter to be available, and pay a small fee, but guests will love being able to personalize their snaps.
Turn Your Memories into Tangible Products
We may live in a digital world, but your memories don’t have to exist solely online. Did you know there is a myriad of websites out there that are just waiting to turn your social media photos into keepsakes? From fun items like flasks or air fresheners to beautiful coffee table books , you can relive your wedding day any time and without the need of a digital screen.
Stream Your Ceremony Live
It’s highly likely that not everyone will be able to make it to your wedding in person. This is especially true if you and your fiancé’s families are from separate areas. Fortunately, all of your friends and family will still be able to join in on your special day no matter where they are. Instagram and Facebook both offer live streaming capabilities that will ensure nobody misses the action.
