DON’T Do These Things on Social Media When You Get Engaged

Social media etiquette for your wedding

Social media etiquette for your wedding

Getting engaged is bound to make you feel really excited – so it’s easy to forget there are some rules you still have to follow (and even more, there are etiquette rules that have taken shape precisely because of our very modern, connected lives).

For example, do you know what are the things you should NOT do on social media when you get engaged and planning your dream wedding in New Mexico? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.

·       You should NOT share engagement pictures before announcing your parents and your closest friends. This is pretty much common sense, especially given that you don’t want your former classmate you didn’t get along with to find out before your own mom does. Furthermore, waiting for a bit longer will give you the opportunity to shoot really pretty pictures you’ll be even prouder to share online.

·       You should NOT share wedding registry information on social media. This is considered to be tacky, so it’s best to stay away from the practice. The only place acceptable to share your wedding registry is your wedding website (or going the old-school path and letting your closest friends and family members spread out the news).

·       You should NOT complain about wedding planning on social media. Just don’t, even if it might feel the easiest thing in the world. Nobody wants to see a bridezilla when they log into Facebook – you wouldn’t like it either. So why not sit down, calm yourself, and talk to someone in your entourage about the things that are stressing you out, rather than lashing out to strangers?

You should NOT forget about the wedding hashtag. It’s not a true MUST of modern wedding etiquette, but it’s such a nice addition! Not only will it add personality and uniqueness to your wedding day, but it will also allow guests to share photos under the same hashtag – and consequently, it will allow you to collect these pictures much easier than otherwise (all you have to do is search up your wedding hashtag the day after the wedding).
