Social media makes it oh so easy to share the cute outfits, the beautiful moments and more.
However, oversharing about the bachelorette party on social media can also create its own problems. Inadvertently sharing the picture of someone who doesnt want to be photographed, or revealing your location to someone who shouldnt know where you are, or even sharing an image that portrays someone in a less than flattering light are all terrible things that could come out of oversharing on social media.
Here are a few Dos and Donts of social media during a bachelorette party:
Do: Ask the bride on her preference, as to how much she would like to share and not share.
Check with her the previous day, regarding everything from e-invites, sharing pictures on Instagram or Facebook etc. The bride may not want her pictures to be shared publicly, but only to a handful of trusted friends. Also, if she does not have an account on a particular social media platform, find out if she minds if some pictures are shared on that particular platform.
Dont: Give out public invitations on social media.
Brides sometimes prefer to keep their bachelorette parties as small, intimate affairs. The bride to be may not prefer that a larger circle come to know about the party. Public invitations on Facebook or Instagram could be noticed by those who are not invited or expected, or in fact those that the bride to be wants to actually avoid. This could lead to hurt feelings or at the very least, extremely awkward situations.
Do: Create a Fun hashtag.
In the event that the bride to be is interested in sharing pictures of the outfits, decorations or even some of the hens party games
, then create a personalised and fun hashtag to go with the posts. This helps friends find the pictures easily, and it will also enable you to keep the pictures organised on the various social media platforms. Make sure everyone invited is also aware of the hashtag.
Dont: Tag someone in pictures without asking first.
At a bachelorette party the hens night games
and other activities can sometimes get a tad bit racy, or even a little out of hand. Not everyone is at their best at these situations. Make sure that you have only a couple of people authorised to share pictures on social media platforms, and always make sure you get the permission of everyone who is in the pictures. Follow the same etiquette before you tag people on the pictures. It will not take more than a few seconds, and will spare you loads of embarrassment and problems.
