No wedsite needed: an Instagram wedding website is au courant #Advice#couples of color#social media#wedding websites March 23 2017 | Guest post by Mia and Jason A portion of Mia and Jason's Instagram wedding website! My fiance', Jason is an Art Director and I am an Intellectual Property Attorney, so innovation is something about which we both are really passionate. We are the type of couple who wanted our wedding to reflect us in every capacity. So when we set out to figure out how we would share the details of our wedding with our family and friends we knew we wanted something out of the box. My fiance came up with the concept to make an Instagram wedding website. It was the first big project that we did collaboratively as an engaged couple and it was a really fun (and at times frustrating) venture. Our wedding Instagram has a main page that the details of how we met and pictures of us from our engagement shoot. There are also several other pages that have the details of the wedding, including but not limited to; attire, accommodations, parking, etc. It also has a page that gives guests an idea of fun things to do in St. Louis while they are there, and a FAQs page as well. We made the pages with the actual details of the wedding private and accessible only to guests to avoid wedding crashers. 😉 We wanted the Instagram to be something that guests not only use as a resource for details on the event but also as something interactive that they'd enjoy leading up to the wedding as well. We decided to use the "Instagram Live" aspect of the app to give friends and family a glimpse into our everyday lives as a couple. It gives the people we love a more intimate look into how we function as a unit. I often post clips from his b-ball games, or when I'm cooking Sunday dinner (which is a big deal in our house). And he posts me doing all the quirky things I do on a regular basis. It's a fun way to share who we are with the people who will be sharing such a special day with us.
