Seven Ways to Make Your Wedding an Instagrammer’s Dream
We use Instagram to document everything from what we eat to the places we go, so why should weddings be any different? These days it’s not uncommon for a bride to pick out her wedding hashtag months in advance, even before the engagement! If you’re a couple who really wants to make your wedding a hit on social media, we found some fun and unique ideas for details that are sure to make your guests pull out their phones and say “I need a picture of that!”
Providing an amazing backdrop is a great way to ensure your guests will take plenty of gorgeous Instagram photos at your wedding without fear of rowdy photobombers lurking in the background. Greenery walls are becoming a huge hit because they provide a vibrant focal point for the space and can bring a bit of nature into a more urban wedding venue. Everyone will love posing with their dates in front of this show-stopping backdrop.
Everyone already loves Instagramming their drinks, so why not step it up a notch and add your own custom cocktail graffiti atop your handcrafted, signature drink? You could use your names, your monogram, your wedding logo or even a custom caricature–the possibilities are endless!
If you want to offer your guests a sweet treat after dinner, there’s no better way to do it than with an eye-catching donut wall! Colorful and delicious looking donuts suddenly become edible pieces of art that are sure to make an appearance on everyone’s Insta-story. Definitely a step up from a boring cupcake display. Our favorite donuts are from VG’s in Cardiff.
Balloons have come a long way from the giant arch you walked under at your high school prom. Whether it’s a photo backdrop or creatively incorporating balloons into your venue decor, they’re a great way to inject plenty of fun and whimsy into your overall decor that looks amazing in Instagram photos.
Acrylic anything is super trendy in decor right now, so why not bring some clear accents into your wedding decor? There are so many ways to incorporate this trend, but some popular ones are with an acrylic seating chart or menus written in gorgeous white calligraphy. So chic and definitely Insta-worthy.
Naked cakes have had their moment, but now it’s time to make room for the drip cake. A close cousin of the naked cake, it’s essentially a naked cake carefully drizzled with decadent caramel or chocolate (or whatever you want!) so that the syrup oozes artfully down the sides. You can even decorate the cake with fresh flowers or fruit to really get it looking photo-ready and beautiful.
Millennials are all about experiences over material items, so if you really want to make it onto their Insta feed, add an unexpected experience to your wedding day. Think a grand fireworks display to end the night or a surprise entertainment from a marching band or barbershop quartet. A personal wedding loan can be a great option to add a little room to your budget so you can really go over the top and create an unforgettable experience.
With a little thought and creativity it’s easy to add some amazing Instagram-able details that will make your wedding truly unforgettable. After the big day you’ll love scrolling through your feed and seeing which unique aspects your friends and family captured through their lens.
