The easiest way to kickstart the planning bit is of course Googling things out. While at it, have you considered using Instagram for some wedding inspiration? Why not? It has everything under the sun and, sharing and storing the wedding inspiration ideas gets easier too.
If you haven’t considered this already, fret not. Here are 6 ways to get the most of Instagram for your million-dollar wedding.
Just like Pinterest and Tumblr, Instagram too has wedding blogs, wedding vendors etc. Start with exploring options and following different wedding blogs, wedding vendors, etc. Because, the best part is, once you start following any such account, Instagram will notify you of more such similar pages. The more the merrier, right?

Social media is all about power of words, ideas and expressions. And with Instagram, the ballgame is about stunning photographs and relevant hashtags that describe them.
While searching for hashtags on Instagram, look for the words you like to browse pictures of. For example, #weddinginspiration, #weddingdecor, #weddingjewellery, etc., are some of the hashtags that will help you get the best results.
In case, you are looking for a specific theme or décor like a pink wedding or maybe a beach wedding, use specific hashtags like #pinkwedding and #beachwedding while searching.
When you double tap on the photos on Instagram, the app senses the kind of photos you like. Not just that, Instagram also gives you an option to re-visit all those double tapped images later. Basically, no chance of losing on the photos you liked.
If you are looking for a faster way to share the photos of themes and décor or honeymoon destinations you liked (without having to save them), just tag them. This way, you don’t have to worry about exhausting your phone’s memory or Whatsapping them.
If there’s an absolutely stunning honeymoon idea, and you are dying to share it with your fiance, use this masterstroke. Just like Facebook’s messenger, Instagram also has a direct messaging option. So, feel free to secretly share as many wedding inspiration photos and other mushy stuffs as you want.
If you don’t have time to constantly check wedding ideas or share it family, friends and your significant other, use the primitive way when there was no internet connection. Take a screenshot quickly and share it with your peeps later.
