Social media has changed the landscape of communication, even in the wedding industry. Some changes are for the better, while others have created a gray area for what is polite and proper. To remind everyone of wedding etiquette that should still win over social media, here’s a list of some social media do’s and don’ts couples should take note of. You do want to make the most of the benefits and convenience social media, without compromising wedding etiquette!

Do ask your girl friends to be your bridesmaids personally.
It’s a big role to take on, so asking in a memorable and fun manner will make the role all the more meaningful for you and your gals.
Do send formal invitations.
You can have e-invites and social media save-the-date posters, but you should still send out formal invitations. Weddings are formal events and sending out proper invitations reflects the respect that such a monumental event deserves.
A wedding is not just a union between the couple, it is also about two families coming together as one. Looking through the photos by Sophia Kwan, I could tell how close Emma and Matthew’s families were as they celebrated the day with lots of love. Let’s also take note of all the pretty details in this wedding. Embracing their Chinese roots, Emma donned a beautiful qun gua adorned with gold jewelry and Matthew wore a Chinese silk shirt while they enjoyed themselves thoroughly during the door games. And do look at the Atelier Lyanna wedding gown with a lace appliqué bodice and button back details–Emma looks so stunning in it with her soft peach bouquet. Lastly, and most noteworthy, we see Emma and Matthew exchanging their vows against a floral arch, accompanied by loved ones, and with an exquisite wedding cake–what’s not to love? Scroll away, lovelies for more!
A warm and fuzzy feeling is simply an understatement for this inexplicably cinematic series of seasons and stills. Gazing at this engagement shoot feels as if you’re hearing the distant yet resonating wedding bells, as this couple takes a serene stroll through the endless charm of Adelaide, Australia before tying the knot. From the couple stepping foot on the monumental scene of the city, gracing the green grass of the quaint countryside, and walking hand in hand to the brimming sunset light–everything about this engagement shoot will delight the lovers of love. With every surreal detail falling into place, you’ll fall deeply in love just like today’s couple, Hugo and Cingel, all thanks to Victor Lui Photography‘s glorious set as you go through it!
