We all love a good Instagram pic or fun Tweet, but does that mean you want your entire wedding documented on social media as it is happening?
In their 8th annual “What’s On Brides’ Minds” survey, David’s Bridal asked newly engaged and married women about their opinion of the role social media should play at the wedding. While brides want their guests to enjoy and capture their special day, many are taking cues from celebrities such as Beyonce and asking that certain details and photos be released on their terms.
“It is hard to escape the presence of social media, and many brides use it to announce their engagement and as a key tool during the wedding planning process,” said Brian Beitler, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at David’s Bridal. “Our ‘What’s On Brides’ Minds survey found that while some weddings are shared by guests with hashtags created by the bride and groom, others are requesting that guests power down completely and simply enjoy the festivities without digital distractions.”
The study found that 44% of brides believe digital rules are important in setting the tone for their guests. But onl y 14% of brides are taking cues from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who are rumored to be completely banning cell phones from their wedding - and asking that there be absolutely NO social media posting.
