For all of you social media influencers out there; don’t worry. As is the case with any event, Instagram can play as much of a role as you want at your wedding, and the number of different ways you can make Instagram work for you on this special occasion is truly incredible.
In this article, we will be telling you about how you can make the most out of Instagram at your wedding, as well as also taking a look at a few of the ways that Instagram can actually be a boon to your wedding as a whole.
One feature that Instagram offers that does not appear to get as much use as it should is their live functionality. Going live does exactly what you think; it allows you to livestream anything right from your phone to all of your followers.
This can be a great way to get all of your friends and family involved who were just not able to make it for one reason or another, and you may just find that it improves your wedding experience in ways you couldn’t even imagine.
Something as simple as going live can allow you to connect with friends you haven’t talked to in years, and we have no doubt they will be more than happy to share in this special time with you.
Sure, it may feel a little daunting putting your wedding on full display for everyone to see; but it’s your wedding, who cares? This is your day, and you have every right to make it an experience of a lifetime.
Encourage Guests to Take As Many Photos As Possible
It may come as a shock to find out that wedding photographers average 400-800 photos per event. Still, for the best day of your life, we don’t think that’s enough. Moreover, having plenty of pictures taken from the perspective of your guests -- all candid, and charmingly rough around the edges -- is a great way to complement your professional collection.
To give yourself the best chances of making sure you have a handful of photos you love, you need to encourage guests to keep their cameras at the ready. Sure, you might want to ask for an ‘unplugged ceremony’ to save your photographer from being blocked out by phones held high, but letting guests know it’s fine to take pictures at other points in the day will pay off in the long run.
You could even look into getting something like an Instagram pictures book to store all of your favourites from the day - you may just find that this makes the experience all the more memorable.
So, do you think you now have a much better idea as to the various ways you can make the most out of Instagram at your wedding? This is going to be one of the best days in your entire life - why let it go to waste by not capturing it forever?
We wish you all the best, and we hope your wedding goes much better than you ever could have imagined. Oh, and before we forget; congratulations.
