Should You Invite Social Media To Your Wedding?

If  your answer is Yes…. your next question should be…

Do you need to take control of any social media associated with your wedding?

We think a definite YES! It is up to you to control it for the build up right up to the day and the day after your wedding.

Engagement – Congrats on your engagement! First photo’s will be of you as a couple and of course of ‘The Ring’! So how do you let the world know?

Well if you are a frequent social media user, you will, no doubt want to make a splash! If you are lucky enough to set up your engagement shoot straight away, you then have the images to share (where you are of course looking your best and with the best photo’s of your ring!)

Hen & Stag Party – This is where you are dipping in to more dangerous territory with the addition of alcohol so you need to be clear on what get’s ‘out there’!

Possibly the best idea is that there should be an embargo on photo’s after a certain time of the night and ensure that your Facebook is set to allow you to ‘approve’ any photo’s that you are tagged on before they appear on your timeline…

You need to feel you can relax and let your hair down without the threat of pictures appearing the next day that may show your ‘enthusiasm‘ for your night out a little too explicitly.

Wedding Day – It is lovely to have a photo journey log of your day and again, here you can take control. Create your #Hashtag and ask your friends and family to use it for the build up and on the day. This will make it easier for your to track your day after the event so you not only have your professional photo’s which are wonderful, but you get ‘real’ photo’s and a vision on how your day really is. #lovestory #hashtagyourwedding

Don’t get too caught up on it during the day. Ensure it is your guests are the ones working for your by taking the snaps for you to enjoy in your own time over the next few days. If this works well, it will eliminate the need for photo-booths or photographers at the reception.

Social Media can be a wonderful free assistant for your wedding but must be managed and planned in advance to ensure it works to it full potential on the day.

The most important thing is that NOONE posts a photo of the dress or the bride BEFORE she walks down the aisle to the groom… it may seem obvious but it has happened!

Newest Wedding Cake Trends

Just about anything can inspire your wedding cake design. The beautiful ornate moulding in your ballroom venue, your beautiful gown, your table centre pieces or even your chosen flowers. Here, a few trends to help inspire your custom cake.

 THE NAKED CAKE….Naked Cakes

Yep, you read that right and it is the hottest trend in Wedding Cakes right now. With the deconstructed cake, you get to show off the inside. For a summertime wedding, berries work well; in winter and fall, ask your baker to fill the layers with seasonal fruits, like apples, pears or even blood oranges. “The exposed cake and filling of the naked cake appeal to both the eyes and the stomach,”

THE LACE CAKE……

Experienced cake bakers are turning out tiers decorated with beautiful designs, reminiscent of the most gorgeous wedding gowns imaginable — like yours. A lot of brides are looking for patterns copied from the lace in their dress. So decide which detail from your dress to highlight on your cake, from a few simple sugar-made buttons to ivory and white fondant lace appliques wrapped around each tier. The key to pulling it off is in the color. This trend works best with light hues and little contrast.

THE METALLIC CAKE…..

Metallics are only big for stationery, but for wedding cakes as well. We’re not talking about a gold and silver vintage style, but more a stylized glam, art-deco, old-Hollywood look. The best part about metallics? They can adapt to any style; delicate embroidery in gold feels opulent while geometric shapes give off a fresh, modern feel. If an entire tier is too much glitz for you, consider adding a little sparkle all over. Fine edible glitter (think: pixie dust) can add a decorative sheen to your cake without overpowering the whole design.
In reality, you can let your creative juices flow when it comes to your cake but remember it must taste yummy as well as look beautiful. Think outside the box and incorporate something personal into your cake. You really should have your cake and eat it!!
