Social Media And Your Wedding Day...

Recommended Posts

I definitely would let your guests know that you would like to be the first people to put your pictures on social media.  This way everyone is aware.  The positive thing about destination weddings is that most people will not even think to use their phones that day.  Most people keep them tucked away in the safe in their rooms so they don't get roaming charges.  So it is a lot easier to have this request away.

Not sure I 100% agree. If there is wifi and especially if it's free people will have their phones out. It's our culture now you know? Especially if that's their only way to have a camera.

Most resorts only offer free wifi in the lobby areas of resorts and have to pay otherwise.  So people may not be uploading right from the ceremony location.  But if you want them not to upload photos I would still suggest you let them know just in case.

My resort I heard is spotty so I'm not worried at the ceremony itself but the last time I was in Mexico the whole resort had it. iPads at the pool and on the beach galore!!! People just laid in the loungers on their phones. And it was free!!!!

Oh wow!! I was really hoping to have some time away from the phone. Good to know! Thank you!!

I can only speak for that resort. Now I'm

Going to a 5* and I have to pay and hear it only works good in the lobby lol

It's a crap shoot. Since everyone I care about will be with us my phone will be stored away.

 

During all my travels I've found Time away from your phone is best done in Cuba. Hahahaha. Wifi is slim to none! I got engaged in Cuba and I had to wait a couple days to find an internet cafe!!!

We are having an "unplugged ceremony." I personally hate when looking through pictures of someone's ceremony and the guests faces are covered by iPads because they are focused on pictures! Since we are getting the disk and rights to our photos we can give them to our guests and they don't have to worry about taking pictures...at least that how we are going to phrase it! We will also be asking our guests to allow us the privilege of posting our first picture as husband and wife on all social media.

 

We plan to put it in our welcome letter and on the programs. I don't care if they take pictures at cocktail hour and reception and put those on social media, just not at the ceremony.

Hey @@calgarybride2015,

I want to also inform people to please not post pictures of us on social media until we have had a chance to do so.

How did you do with this? What wording did you use? I don't care if they post pics just don't do it before me and Nathan posts them. I hate when people post pics of the bride and groom and they haven't even said I do yet. But that's just my opinion.

What did you do with this?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
