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.

KWAM Round 2 with Angela Next Tuesday!

Was anyone else as fired up to start their Tuesday as we were, hearing our own Angela Watson and her tremendous enthusiasm?! We are super excited about all the great happenings here at Mahaffey, as well as the wonderful things going on with our fabulous partners. There are so many fun events coming up in Memphis, and we are honored to be a part of them.

Speaking of which…ever heard of the Earle Farrell Show? You know, the one that’s all about GOOD news? Who better to represent and promote that than Angela!

Well, lucky for you (and us!), she will be back in the KWAM 990 studios on Tuesday, June 18 at 4:30pm. Be sure to tune in! We think she may have found her second calling as an on-air personality…of course, being Director of Event Experiences will always come first. 🙂

Keep on keepin’ on, Ang!
