Social Media can make you a celebrity for a day among your relatives and friends !


If you went to a wedding but didn’t Instagram it, did it really happen? Social media has made its way into pretty much every aspect of our lives, including this most special of events. While it’s perfectly reasonable to desire a Facebook and Twitter-free environment for just a few hours, we believe your wedding is not the time for such an idea. Read on the reasons why, then go charge up that smart phone. 

•    You can be in the moment without missing a moment 

Being the main focus of the wedding is hard work. You’ve got to make the rounds to friends and family you haven’t seen in ages, and because of it, you may miss something hilarious in the opposite corner of the wedding hall. If your college friends are snapping pictures while you’re saying Namaste to your Mamaji/Masiji/Sasuji (ahem ahem), you’ll be able to catch up on all the action later on.

•    You can be a celebrity for a day 

Think of yourself as the Kareena and Saif Ali Khan of your wedding. People will be snapping pics of you and your spouse doing everything from exchanging garlands to holding hands to secretly smiling at each other !! Privacy s the price you pay being the Star couple! Sounds a little overwhelming, perhaps, but who hasn’t secretly wanted a taste of the Bollywood life?

•    Personalised websites are the coolest 
They’re also the easiest way to access every single pic from your wedding in one stream, so be sure to use one! After you’ve created your own personalised website, make sure guests know about it. You can post all the events and schedules on it for your guests convenience and also share a lot of pre-wedding candid shoots for a few laughs! You’re bound to get tons of candids.Create your own personalised website, absolutely free of cost on ShaadiElephant.

•    Innovative e-Invites 
Gone are the days of spending over a month on collecting the postal addresses of all our relatives and friends, then leaving the fate of your expensive invitation cards in the hands of our Indian Postal Service. Nowadays with everyone being an Online Citizen, E-Invites are the safest and cheapest way to send out your innovative invites.

•    It’ll be easy (and affordable!) to decorate after you celebrate 
What better way to liven up your home together than with pictures of your wedding day? It’s easy to turn Instagrams into keepsakes using sites like Prinstagram and Shutterfly, which transform smart phone snaps into everything from fridge magnets to wall calendars. Added bonus: friends will be delighted when they drop by and see their pics on the shelves.
