Do set up a wedding hashtag.
Do use a hashtag that guests can easily spell.
Do tell the guests what the hashtag is. Post it on your website, on a reception sign or even cocktail napkins.
Do check your wedding hashtag to see if it has been used before.
Do include a place for guests to take pictures. Incorporate a well lit photo wall or backdrop so guests can snap some wedding selfies.
Don’t post too many design pictures as you plan. You want to leave an element of surprise for your big day.
Don’t post pictures of the bride on the wedding day until she in down the aisle.
Don’t post pictures of other guests that they wouldn’t want their boss to see (ie, after too many glasses of champagne).
Don’t let your vendors post too many pictures if you want your wedding published in a magazine.
