I’ll be the first to say that your wedding can’t just look good. It’s got to be fun for you and your guests, above all else. But when it comes to the day after your wedding, what’s the first thing you’re going to do? Get yourself onto Instagram and relive your wedding through the eyes of your friends and family! Here are a few simple steps to help you make sure you have an Instagramable wedding that urges your guests to take plenty of photos.
Have a hashtag
Sure, your newsfeed will be flooded with photos of your wedding, but a hashtag is the perfect way to keep all your guests’ photos in one place. Creating a hashtag is just the beginning. Displaying your hashtag is how you can make sure your guests actually use it. Put it on the napkins, the menus, a cute sign, or have your MC make an announcement!

Consider your lighting
If you are planning on having any kind of activities (like The Shoe Game) or you have a particularly beautiful wedding cake or guest book, make sure they are in good light. Scout your reception venue to see which spots would best highlight these features so they are Instagramable.
