We are currently in a period where technology is the ruler of everything. It is incorporated in almost everything that we do in our daily life, and we have come to enjoy the benefits that it provides. Digitalizing your wedding can allow you and your guests a unique experience to share things a lot quicker than the “normal” wedding procedures.
Wedding websites are a valuable tool for brides and grooms to help share information with their guests. These will be the home for updates, registries, RSVPing, the bride and groom’s story, things to do near the venue, engagement photos and many more. Some of the more popular websites are Minted, Joy, Zola and The Knot. After you decide what you want out of the website, you can then choose and start developing your site.
A wedding hashtag is one of the first things that brides and grooms come up with after their engagement, which usually incorporates both last names into a catchy hashtag for social media posts. The most important thing to remember when creating this hashtag is to make sure it is unique. That will ensure that your pictures will be the only ones to show up under it. You will also want to make the spelling easy, avoid using the same letters back-to-back and always capitalize the first letter of each word to make it easier to read.
If you have trouble thinking of your hashtag, many online tools can help. There are hashtag generators online, Facebook groups you can join and you can even hire someone who will come up with one for you.
Snapchat geofilters are a fun way for your guests to post about your wedding with a graphic created by you. To create a geofilter, you can go onto the Snapchat website or app, select the area you would like it to be active and then upload your design. Geofilters can cost anywhere from $5 to $20 per day to cover the average size of a suburban home. This price does change based on the square footage of the area and the location of the venue.
