5 Social Media Ideas for Brides & Grooms

Your wedding is a huge moment in your life – how much of its planning should go on the social media, though? If you are not very certain of what modern wedding etiquette has to say about this, read on and find out more – we have gathered the top 5 social media ideas for brides & grooms who want to make sure they do it the proper way…even in the digital age.

  • Be careful of what you share and with whom. Truth be told, you most likely have a lot of people in your social network list – and not even 10% of them are actual friends. Why would you want to share your wedding details with them, especially if you don’t plan on inviting them to the Big Day?
  • Furthermore, remember that some people may feel offended if they see wedding details on your social media and they haven’t been invited to the wedding. Try to be discrete – it will be better for everyone.
  • Don’t ruin the surprise. You want to wow your guests, not to reveal everything to them before they even reach the wedding. Try to hint at things that would make them curious, but don’t share every single detail with them on the social media.
  • Talk to your fiancé and make sure you’re both on the same page when it comes to social media, what goes there, and how much is too much. This is a huge event for both of you, so it’s only natural to do things this way.
  • Try to avoid negativity. Ranting about the lack of wedding dress options or the fact that your favorite blooms won’t be in season is not the kind of thing you want to share on Facebook. Keep it happy and positive instead!

What to Wear to a Valentine’s Day Wedding

Have you been invited to a Valentine’s Day-themed wedding? Well, you must be honored and excited – and also a bit confused over what to wear at this kind of event. Is it OK to go full-blown red and let Cupid inspire your attire?

Read on and find out the best tips on what to wear to a Valentine’s Day wedding.

  • – Of course, you can definitely wear red and other similar romance-inspired colors. Try to play around with the fabrics to add a bit more texture and stylishness to your look, though. Red lace will be feminine, sexy, and suave, while velvet (very in this year) can be really luxurious and elegant.
  • – Pay attention to the pink hues. Pink is also a very much-appreciated Valentine’s Day color, but pay attention to the fact that very light shades of pink may be too summery for this time of the year. Instead, we suggest that you focus on deeper hues of pink – they will make you pop with femininity, grace, and elegance!
  • – Last, but definitely not least, remember that you don’t have to go full Valentine’s Day mode. You could simply play around with the accessories. A little black dress is more than well-suited for a casual wedding – and when accessorized with a cute pair of red earrings, a red lipstick, and a heat-shaped red clutch purse, it can look absolutely amazing. Use your creativity and imagination – you don’t have to be 100% coordinated with the wedding theme!

5 Tips a Bride Will Want to Use to Plan Her Wedding

Wedding planning is difficult, that’s no secret. Yet, it is not impossible – and the millions of weddings that happened before you are a real statement for that. How to plan your wedding the best way? We have some of the best tips a bride will want to use to plan her wedding – so read on, inspire yourself, and create a wedding everyone will always remember:

  • – Start by creating the budget. Sit down with your fiancé and discuss the money matters. How much do you have and who will pay for what? How much can you afford to spend on the entire Big Day? How about its separate elements?
  • – Map out the planning process. Where do you want to be two months from now? What will have to be done one month before the wedding? How to organize everything in a way that helps you avoid stress and anxiety?
  • – Don’t be afraid to do it your way. Yes, wedding etiquette rules may say this or that – but this is your wedding. You are allowed to trespass old traditions and create something that’s unique for you and your love story.
  • – Dream big. Really, do. Surround yourself with pins and magazine cut-outs, and even create an entire wall where you can bring together the very best ideas. The key to planning unique weddings lies in being surrounded by amazing ideas.
  • – Don’t forget about yourself and your fiancé. Sure, wedding planning is a priority, but don’t forget about your own relaxation. Take a couple of days off, at least every now and again. Go away with your loved one, spend some time reading a book, or simply binge-watch some Netflix. It can help so much!

Add Special Personal Touches to Your Wedding

Every couple is special in their own way – and you make no exception whatsoever. Naturally, you will want your Big Day to reflect who you are – but how do you actually add special personal touches to your wedding? We have some ideas for you – so read on if you are searching for inspiration.

  • – Think of your favorites. The music you like, the books you re-read over and over again, the movies that define you as a couple – they can all be part of your wedding day. Use your creativity and incorporate elements of your absolute all-time favorites – walk down the aisle on your favorite Metallica song, use your favorite book titles as table “numbers”, accessorize your groomsmen with boutonnieres inspired by your favorite movies, and so on. Don’t be afraid to think out of the box!
  • – Donate to a charity you believe in. It is always nice to know you can make a change in someone’s life – so why not take this opportunity on your wedding day? You can replace your wedding favors with donations made in the name of your guests – and they will be more than happy to have contributed to such a beautiful gesture.
  • – Have a creative unity ceremony. It doesn’t really matter if it’s a candle, sand, or anything else that’s meaningful to you – the most important thing is that you put love and attention to detail into this unique moment. Make it a beautiful, unforgettable, and truly emotional one – people will absolutely love it!


Still looking for the perfect wedding venue in Savannah? Come visit The Mackey House and you will not be disappointed. With beautiful history behind it and a gorgeous environment, our venue will make your Big Day feel absolutely perfect – and your guests will definitely like it here too.

Trend Alert! Gorgeous, Pressed Flower Wedding Details

Flowers and weddings have always had a very close relationship. Yet, for a long time, we forgot how beautiful and elegant dried and pressed flowers can be. Huge trend in the 70s, the pressed flowers are coming back into modern shapes – so if you love the idea, you will definitely appreciate the following pressed flower wedding details tips. Read on and find your inspiration:

  • – Pressed flowers can add a touch of grace and beauty in a unique way, so you can use them throughout the various parts of your wedding day. One of the most popular ways to incorporate pressed flowers is by having them framed (with a clear, glass frame, or with a wooden one if you want a vintage or rustic appeal) – and then used as table numbers. These little details will perfectly compliment your Big Day!
  • – Furthermore, you can use pressed flowers for the seating chart too. If you want to surprise your guests right from the very beginning of your reception, arrange different pressed flower frames instead of a classic seating chart. It will look absolutely gorgeous!
  • – Want to make things even more modern and refreshing? Create arrangements with pressed greenery, fern, or herbs. They will look fresh and full of energy, and they will also add an even more unique vibe to your wedding tables and décor. If you want to, you can even combine your favorite pressed blooms with some greenery, just as you do with your fresh bouquets.

Looking for a pretty wedding venue in Savannah? The Mackey House will offer timeless elegance with a dash of charming Savannah history – so if this is the kind of venue you are looking for, be sure to come and see us as soon as possible. Book our venue and make your Big Day memorable!
