Ladies, we certainly get it that you are engaged and about to get married pretty soon. But, do you know there is a very thin line between sharing this extremely happy news vs. literally annoying your friends on social media with posting every little detail about it?
So, here is a list of a few social media updates that most brides-to-be make which costs them their friendships in the virtual world. Well, here are 6 annoying updates that brides should never post unless they wish to be unfriended and unfollowed on social media.
Boy oh boy! Some of you brides-to-be surely go overboard posting photographs and selfies. And to top it all, you deliberately make sure that your engagement ring is in focus! Sure, people in your friend list are happy for you, but an overdose of the bling on your finger might start hurting their eyes soon. So, why not keep this merry feeling to yourself lest people start making fun of you and calling you a brat!
You make yourself the butt of all jokes by giving everyone an update about the days left for you to actually wed the love of your life! What is even more awful is that you are announcing your excitement to people you barely even know. For instance, strangers you befriended or your colleagues from current and previous workplace. They surely do not wish to know about your life events in great details!
It is true that we are living in a digital age. But, then do not go overboard by creating a digital wedding invite through an event page on every social media portal you are a part of! Instead, go for websites that let you create personalised wedding websites, create photo galleries and send invites and receive RSVPs! These websites also enable you to share your wedding details only with a closed group of people. And, so you save yourself from the embarrassment of giving your entire friend list a peek into your wedding preparations, without them asking for it.
This is a wakeup call for all those brides who do not have a life outside of the virtual world! We suggest that you take a hiatus from Facebook, Twitter etc. on your wedding day at least. Immerse yourself in the wedding celebrations on the D-day and even after it! Remember, you are being welcomed by your in-laws. So, get to know them, chat and spend time with them, instead of making updates about your new marital status! And hey girl, it is time you set your priorities straight because the virtual world can wait!
Some newly-wed brides take it upon themselves to keep everyone updated about their honeymoon destination. They constantly upload and tweet selfies and pictures with even more annoying hashtags! This not only leaves many in splits but also annoys them out of their wits! We think you should just enjoy your honeymoon, girls!! We do not want to see your entire photo blog, but definitely want to hear the stories after you are back! Besides, do take photographs and keep it personal or post just a few if you cannot resist the temptation!
Although, updating your wedding photographs as your profile pics, week-after-week or month-after-month is not as annoying as wedding updates, it still raises an alarm in our minds. It is a tell-tale sign that this wedding was the only important thing to have ever happened to you (which might be true!). But think again! Is there nothing else that defines who you are?
We hope these words of wisdom does you all the good it can. And, for the rest of you who are single and unmarried, do not forget to send us annoying social media updates made by brides that we may have missed out on!
The moment a girl hears the news of her wedding, she gets jitters in her body and starts to beam with joy and happiness. The joy of starting a new phase of her life with her special someone gives butterflies in a would-be-brides' stomach and her days and nights pass by in preparingRead More
