Ban all Mobiles!
You could ban mobiles from your wedding celebration or you can embrace social media and take advantage of your guests’ photographic and video skills with a Wedding Day Hashtag.
Ok, so all the plug sockets will all be taken by chargers and yes there’s the danger that the singing chef will have his PA unplugged in the middle of his show. It has happened.
How we smile about it now. The guest who was low on juice, sigh….
And you’ll also have the guys buried in live sport updates and gals swapping news on WhatsApp. BUT the HUGE advantages are the photos. Different again from the formal photos or a fun photo booth and best of all – free!!!! Just use a personal Wedding Day Hashtag!
How to find your wedding photos on social platforms?
Simple; a wedding day hashtag.
We’re sure you know this already but in case you missed it, when you add a hash symbol # to a word or phrase or even a string of nonsense on many social media platforms it instantly becomes linked and searchable. Just try searching #singingchef on Facebook for example.
It’s that simple just pick a wedding day hashtag and off you go. Best find one that’s unique to you so not #ourwedding or #ourbigday. Or you’ll find some amazing snaps but probably not yours.
Why not try a combination of your names and wedding date? Careful with symbols and emoji they can’t be included. A quick search on Instagram and Twitter for other wedding day hashtags to be make sure nobody has used it before, and you’re good to go.
Don’t forget to spread the word and encourage your friends, family and guests to hashtag as they post. Putting the tag on your invitations, on a stylish chalk board on the day or perhaps printed on the meal menu are just three ways you can get everyone onboard. A group message or email can also help….maybe scheduled to arrive during your wedding meal. Imagine 200 simultaneous notifications during dinner 🙂
What ever you do make sure to tell us your wedding day hashtag too. We love to see the amazed reactions when the singing waiters start to sing.
