2. Are there any red flags to acknowledge when using social media for my wedding?
The same team from Kleinfeld Paper advises against putting your wedding hashtag on your wedding invitation. Only the very special details of your wedding belong on the invitation, which family members will save and cherish forever. It’s also important to remember that not everyone wants to be involved in your social posts! Make sure to respect your guests and ask them before tagging or posting.
3. I’d love to be featured on Kleinfeld’s social media or blog! How do I get Kleinfeld Bridal to share my photos?
We absolutely love featuring photos from our real brides! Try using #Kleinfeld on all your Instagram posts so our team can find you. If we find your photos and want to post them, our team will reach out to you! Make sure to always tag the photographer so we can give proper photo credit. (Pro Tip: We can only see posts from public accounts! If your page is private, we will miss out on all those beautiful photos.)
4. When I change my last name, how do I make the switch on social media?
, a Kleinfeld partner that helps new brides change their last name, has offered some sage advice. Always keep your old handle/username. If you delete this account, anyone who mentioned you in a caption won’t appear in your new account. Keeping your old handle is the best way to save your favorite memories.
5. How should I use GeoTags?
Including the location of your celebration has lots of benefits! Use Geotags on Instagram so future brides-to-be can inquire for themselves about your venue. Your posts can also include a geotag for your wedding hotel block. Guests can use it to browse Instagram and see who else is staying at the same hotel.
