How to Make Your Wedding Insta-Famous

These days, social media plays such a big role in our lives that it would only make sense for it to be incorporated into our weddings! The most popular media outlet lately has been Instagram and if you’ve been following it’s success, you’ll notice that Instagram has given fame to several people just by what they post. You, too, could become “Insta-Famous” with a few easy tricks on your wedding day.

 

Use hashtags. Hashtags are the easiest way to get publicity on your wedding. Whether it’s incorporated into your ceremony programs or written on a sign somewhere at your venue, if there’s one set hashtag that guests can use on pictures of your wedding then that hashtag will eventually create publicity and maybe even a following!

 

Tag locations. Letting your followers know where you held your wedding is great PR for both you and the venue where your wedding is held. Not only will your followers know exactly where your wedding was held, but also anytime someone looks at the pictures taken from that venue your photos will show up!

Create a contest. The prizes could be as simple as gift card (trust me, people LOVE gift cards) but by creating a contest, you can increase the number of people who post pictures of your wedding. Through this contest you could even incorporate a certain hashtag or have the contestants tag you and/or your spouse to increase your own publicity!

Have a wedding profile. If you really want to go all out, you can create a separate profile just dedicated to your wedding. This way, any pictures that guests take at your wedding can tag that profile and – if it’s public – those photos can be seen by everyone to show what an amazing time your wedding was!!

There are tons of ways to become “Insta-Famous”, but I personally think having a famous wedding is the best way. Do you know anyone with an Insta claim to fame? Let us know in the comments!

 

Cheers, y’all!
