Wedding etiquette for NM brides

Wedding etiquette has changed a lot in the last couple of decades. Not only are New Mexico brides not obliged to wear white, or stand in receiving lines anymore, but an entirely new set of rules was born as a result of widespread Internet use as well.

What are the wedding etiquette rules all couples should remember in the digital age? Read on and find out more about this.

·       Facebook. Whatever you do, DO NOT post a picture of the engagement ring before calling your mom and your best friends. You really don’t want your fifth grade math teacher to find out before your own mom does. Also, keep in mind that there’s no deadline as to when you can update your relationship status on Facebook. You can do it as soon as everyone close knows about the engagement, or you can take your time and do it sometime in the next few months.

·       Twitter. With all the nervousness surrounding your wedding day, tweeting will most likely be the last thing on your mind. Take example from the big mass-media events out there and assign a special person to keep Twitter updated throughout the wedding. It’s a nice touch that will help you make sure your digital selves are “celebrating” the Big Day too!

·       All social media sites. Want your wedding to be associated with uniqueness? Tell your guests to use a specific hashtag when sharing pictures of the wedding on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. This will also help you “collect” all these photos once the Big Day is over.
