With sites such as Facebook and Twitter becoming a permanent part of day-to-day life Do the Bride a Favor releases advice on social media etiquette. Prompted by The Huffington Post and their article on social media do’s and don’ts for weddings, Do the Bride a Favor releases advice on social media etiquette
When getting engaged, family and close friends should be the first to know. Simply sharing a picture on Facebook for everyone to see may offend those closest to the bride and groom. To simplify things, make a few phone calls to the nearest and dearest first and then share the news or pictures on social media sites.
Social media sites make wedding planning easier than ever by offering online invitation sites and event management services. However, members of the older generation may not have a Facebook or Twitter account. Managing RSVPs and invites online is easy and free. For those without social media access, send them paper invitations, and create “ghost” RSVPs on the social media event page on their behalf to keep track of who is coming. Another fun social media idea that can assist in decision-making is to put out a poll to all friends and family that are “plugged in” for tiebreakers between the best flavor of cake for the sweet tooth couple of cake or a kosher option for dinner.
Many couples are choosing to go unplugged for their wedding day. If the bride and groom prefer a social media free event, outline this guideline in the invitation. Posting signs outside the event as a reminder is also a good idea. DtBaF suggests encouraging guests to deposit their cell phones at the coat check area in return for a bag of custom wedding candy.
However the bridal couple chooses to manage social media during the event, it’s important to remain polite while communicating preferences.
Do the Bride a Favor gives advice on proper etiquette for social media involvement before and during a wedding. This includes calling close relatives to share the news before posting it on social media sites, and encouraging unplugged weddings.
