Establish Designated Photo Spots 

Establishing designated photo spots around your wedding can guarantee that any photos posted to social media are to your taste and follow your wedding theme. Setting up photo backdrops is a great way to do this. Flower walls, ribbon backdrops, photo props, photo frames are all a great way to get your guests involved and taking really fun and imaginative pictures that you know will go straight onto social media.
