Obviously, apps have changed the game when it comes to coordinating a wedding, most brides will download an app to help with the planning. Pinterest has become a huge player for anyone planning a wedding. The photo-driven platform is perfect for all things wedding related, but these ladies are also using Pinterest to keep close tabs on celebrity ceremonies. Can you guess the most popular brides on Pinterest? We'll give you a hint, their reality royality!
As excpected 95 percent of future brides will share their planning process across social media, yet a majority will still keep their wedding dress to themselves until the big day.
The study found that social media is infiltrating wedding attendees and planners in many unexpected ways. Only 30 percent of brides-to-be have a pre-determined wedding hashtag. However almost all guests, 92 percent, are supportive of the wedding hashtag.
