Looking for inspiration for your special day? These days happy couples are looking everywhere for inspiration for their nuptials, hoping to find that special theme or detail that speaks to them and makes their celebration stand out from the crowd. One of the most popular ways to seek wedding inspiration is to use Instagram – here's our quick guide on how to do it.
Instagram allows you to search through the public profiles of millions of users, viewing the images they have uploaded from their mobile phones and tablets over the years. It's primarily used by groups of friends wanting to share visual updates from their lives with their social circles, but it's also recently being used as a source of inspiration for everyone from fashion designers and artists to couples looking to plan their special day.
Through Instagram you can have immediate access to millions of images of weddings and wedding trends from around the world. Using the search bar, you can search to see how other couples have interpreted different themes – try entering hashtags associated with your chosen theme such as #1920swedding or #whitewedding, or check out the Instagram accounts of well known wedding bloggers and publications for up-to-the-minute ideas and advice. You can also use Instagram to search for inspiration for a specific element of your wedding, by using hashtags or individual users to search images related to wedding dresses, flowers, catering and more.
Finally, if you've had success with getting wedding ideas from Instagram, don't forget to snap and upload images from your own celebrations to help inspire the next generation of social media brides.
