    Five Ways to Have a Social Media Friendly Wedding

    Social media has become part of our everyday lives, so it's bound to be a part of the biggest day of your life too – your wedding! There are plenty of social media tools and tricks to help you navigate your nuptials, from wedding planning to documenting the big day! So listen up social media savvy brides and grooms, here are five ways to use social media when saying ‘I do’ at Palmetto Dunes:

    Get inspired

    The days of carrying around a stack of wedding magazines are gone. Nowadays brides-to-be are turning to Pinterest to gain inspiration, learn about the latest in wedding trends, and find DIY ideas. From the ring to the dress to the decor, Pinterest provides a seemingly infinite collection of wedding ideas and allows brides to keep track of their favorite finds. For our top beach wedding ideas, visit the Hilton Head Weddings Pinterest board!

    Connect with your guests

    With friends and family around the globe, what better way to connect with your guests than on social media? Announcing your engagement to the world on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and sending out beautifully designed digital invitations are staples of every modern bride. But no social media friendly wedding is complete without a wedding website. It's not only a great way to keep everyone in the loop about the details of your big day, but can show off photos of the wedding party, share your registry, allow guests to RSVP, and even have guests contribute music to your wedding playlist.

    Document the big day

    With social media, there are so many great ways for you and your guests to share photos, videos and memories. Get creative in creating a wedding hashtag and, with help from your MC and descriptive decor, encourage your guests to share pictures throughout the day. Don’t forget to tag Palmetto Dunes so your followers know the location of your amazing celebration!

    Social media savvy brides can turn to Snapchat to document their day. By sending photos and videos, brides can create a montage to share with their Snapchat friends and family. Include your guests in the fun by customizing your own filter that will temporarily appear on the app within the physical location of your wedding venue.

    Undoubtedly you will have friends and family in other parts of the world, who aren’t able to make it to your special day. Live streaming the ceremony, using Periscope or Facebook Live is a fantastic way to bring your wedding to those unable to attend.

    Say selfie!

    A popular trend at weddings and special events is the selfie booth. Head to your local craft or costume shop and pick up a handful of fun props. Find the perfect background – or make your own – and let your guests have fun dressing up and taking photos at your reception. These photos make for great mementos from your reception, and great content for your social media feed!

    Relive those magic moments

    After the celebrations, curled up in your honeymoon suite, dig into your guests’ wedding photos by searching for your personalized hashtag. Companies like Social Print Studio and Artifact Uprising make it easy to create photo albums, prints, greeting cards even magnets, using the Instagram and social media photos shared on your special day.

    Looking for a little extra help to pull you wedding wishes together? Let us help you plan your Palmetto Dunes wedding.
