Whilst browsing on the internet, we came across an interesting infographic on the new rules of wedding etiquette on social media platforms.
Wedding etiquette for the bride and groom:
⇒ Call your parents before pressing “post” or “tweet” to announce your news.
Your close friends and of course your family, will appreciate hearing it straight from you first.
⇒ Change your relationship status in minutes or months, up to you!
There’s no wrong or right time, some brides and grooms even do it at the altar!
⇒ Post pics of your engagement ring.
But keep the details like cost and carat to yourself.
⇒ Designate a Tweeter-of-Honour.
Enjoy your big day, stay off your phone and still keep everyone updated.
⇒ Send out traditional paper invites for the main event.
Email invites are totally OK for pre- and post-wedding events. There are plenty of websites that let you customise e-invites.
Wedding etiquette for the guests:
⇒ Wait to post your congratulations.
If the couple hasn’t made the announcement, then you shouldn’t shout out the news for them.
⇒ Private message wedding planning questions.
It can be disrespectful for the couple’s other friends who weren’t invited.
⇒ Post pics of the bride and groom.
Respect their request if they ask you not to share photos before they do.
⇒ Put your phone away.
Posting occasionally is OK, but the couple invited you to enjoy their day.
⇒ Follow directions for the RSVP.
The couple’s inboxes are already full of wedding-related details. A text or email is likely to get lost in the mix.
