If we’re honest, we all love to scroll through social media. It can be hard not to go crazy when you’re planning your wedding and there are tons of ideas out there! Before you know it, after looking through social media, minutes turn to hours and you’ve pinned a ton of posts that are nothing like the wedding you’re actually planning. If that’s you, take a look at our guide on how to use social media to plan your wedding.
Every day we share tons of gorgeous wedding inspiration and expert tips on how to plan your wedding. If you’d like all kinds of wedding planning help and advice, then follow us!
Find your style
Use social media to explore different wedding styles and discover your own! You can flick through all kinds of weddings and aesthetics and settle on what feels best for you.
Hashtags are a great way to fine-tune the details of your wedding. Things like #blushpinkwedding or #weddingfavours will give you an idea of what other couples have done.
Think you’re too young and cool for Facebook? Well, we’re here to let you in on a little secret… Facebook is still the most popular form of social media to this day. In fact, our Facebook community is the busiest and fastest growing wedding group in the country! You can use this group to ask for recommendations from other couples and get advice from wedding industry professionals.

Pinterest provides ample opportunities to view, save and sort through all your ideas. Create boards for different things (flowers, cakes, dresses) and keep your ideas organised. Use the captions to give yourself information about what you like about the picture, so you don’t forget.
Expert tip: Keep your wedding planning boards private, unless you’re happy for your random co-worker to stumble across your wedding inspo boards.
Sure, these aren’t totally social media, but we’re including them anyway! Our wedding planning podcast is the place to be. Every Wednesday we publish a new episode and they are FULL of wedding planning tips and inspiration.

Spy on suppliers
And we mean this in the least creepy way possible. Use social media to see what your dream wedding suppliers are up to and if their style fits yours. It’s a great way to see a potential supplier’s most up to date work!
Social media is about being social, isn’t it? So have conversations with suppliers. Comment on their post and ask questions! In fact, if you have any questions, you’re always welcome to DM us or comment on our posts. We’ll do our best to help you out.
