Using Social Media For Your Wedding

Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! I am so excited to be talking about one of my favorite topics on the blog today---WEDDINGS! Next month I announced that I will be sharing a post every Wednesday about my wedding, and sharing some personal thoughts on how the planning process was for me. I want to kick start this wedding series with a post about how I am currently helping a friend of mine with her wedding. Being on the other side of wedding planning now, I feel like I have a different perspective and definitely more information to share on what I would have done different, or how I would have planned better.

One thing I definitely wish I had done, was have a wedding website. This is where Go Daddy comes in handy. With GoCentral, you can create a wedding website in under an hour - without needing years of experience, or a full Saturday to devote to getting a site up and running. GoCentral gives engaged couples an easy way for their guests to find all the wedding info they need. And because a website can be built in less than an hour – no previous website-building experience necessary! – it lets couples get back to planning the wedding. My friend Lena and I worked on the site together, and in no time, everything was up and running, and it looks amazing, there are different templates, fonts, photos and pretty much anything you can think of.

Wedding websites are part of a bigger trend using technology to keep guests connected and part of the wedding experience. When it comes down to it, weddings are over in a heartbeat - but technology makes it possible to build anticipation before the wedding, and keep memories of the big day alive after. Tech-savvy brides, grooms, and wedding planners can keep guests connected and part of the overall experience through Instagram hashtags recording the day. A wedding website - with a customized domain - gives couples a centralized place to gather information about the big day, connect with guests, and share photos and details afterwards.

I love how personalized the site we created is, and how much you can add, or take away. From stock photos, to personal photos, you can really customize what you want your site to look like.
