Social media has become such a huge part of the wedding experience. It seems as though almost every aspect of our daily lives now revolves around consuming and sharing online. Whether it’s what you’re eating, your opinion on current events or just something you find hilarious, us daily users of social media are constantly posting about what we’re up to.

There are mixed opinions on whether social media should be embraced, or shunned on a wedding day. Some couples opt to enforce their guests to completely ‘unplug’ for the day. This helps keep the wedding intimate in case couples have any fears about their guests being disengaged on the day.

I’ve been thinking a lot about social media. How do you know how to do it? Is there a way to get it right so it’s worth all the time it can take?

Maybe we can all learn from each other – so this blog post is to get you thinking, talking and sharing I hope. Have you got social media ‘right’ for your wedding business?

How do you know when you’re using social media well?

1. Networking, making connections & cross promotion with online industry contacts is bringing customers to your door

I see friendships developing on twitter between bloggers, wedding suppliers and photographers – they lead to some fantastic bridal shoots, and you get great product photography and brand associations for your website.

This is great, so long as the end result is real customers ordering from you. Otherwise it’s time wasted when you could be promoting your business elsewhere.

2. Potential customers and clients see your status updates and tweets and make enquiries
