Tuesday Trends: 5 Ways to Use Social Media at Your Wedding

If social media had a mission statement, it would be to bring people together while simultaneously keeping them informed. Here are 3 ways to do just that for the bride and groom’s big day!

1. Planning: A decade ago, wedding planning meant stacks of magazines and a three-ring binder for most brides. Today, everything needed to plan a wedding can be found on a smart phone. Pinterest is a great resource for getting ideas on everything from hair styles to bridesmaids dresses to event decor. And for the brides that don’t want every detail of their wedding shared before the big day, Pinterest has secret boards. If a bride needs more than inspiration to plan a wedding, Google has a wedding budget template and apps like lover.ly and The Knot can help tame the chaos before the nuptials. 

2. Day-Of Coordination: Utilize apps like Wedding Party, Wedding Planner for iPad, and appy couple for a more seamless day of experience. These apps have can coordinate vendor information, send out email reminders to the wedding party when they need to be somewhere, keep a shot list for photographers and so much more.

3. Crowdsource Your Photographs: Wedding photographs are the piece of the ceremony and reception that will last forever and many couples don’t want to miss out on the moments between their guests. Crowdsourcing wedding photos is a great way to involve their guests and have photographs they would otherwise not have. A popular trend now is creating a wedding hashtag and having guests share their photos on twitter and Instagram using the hashtag. Apps like WedPics, Snapable, and Eversnap allow the couple, the wedding party, and all the guests to share photos and videos during the ceremony and reception and order prints and albums to help remember the day.

Springtime Showroom

With the arrival of spring approaching, a fresh showroom layout at Mahaffey was crucial. Our wonderful and talented event specialists got to work last week and redesigned the whole area!

They incorporated popular spring colors and some of our newest inventory items. Not only do all the bright shades on display bring those of us in the office a little extra joy, but they help our clients who come visit brainstorm ideas for their big day, gala or whatever fabulous event they’re planning.

We hope you’ll love the new look as well and will swing by and see us sometime soon. If you’d like to make an appointment, feel free to call us 901.457.4538 or stop by Monday through Friday from 8 am until 5 pm!
