Is the Wedding Receiving Line Making a ComebackIn the world of wedding traditions, some old-school rituals are making a comeback, with the receiving line being among them. In decades past, the wedding couple would stand at the exit of their ceremony just moments after saying ‘I Do,’ to greet, hug and handshake all of their guests.

Sharing Wedding Photos and practical tips

Wedding Photos

With so many of your guests used to posting every beautiful thing they see on their social media pages, you can expect that most of your friends and family members will be sharing images of your gorgeous wedding dress, wedding cake, wedding venue, even your wedding menu items to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social media platforms. Even wedding coordinators are posting images of your wedding venue decorated in its full glory onto their social media pages, and sharing the most spectacular details of their brides’ and grooms’ wedding décor online.
