Pros of Snapchat: Few apps are more fun on a wedding day than Snapchat. Snapchat helps couples engage with their closest friends and family by sharing the micro parts of wedding planning—the day-to-day experiences both good and bad, while having some fun, explains Sachs. “This type engagement creates a more frequent dialogue and is a fun way to give a behind-the-scenes look at your wedding planning journey.”

Pros: While considered less of a social media platform and more of a telephone app, Whatsapp is being increasingly used to help couples with family living in far-away countries plan their wedding. While there are many pros and cons to this social media platform, it makes it incredibly easy to keep in touch with vendors—through phone and video calling, as well as group text chats.

Cons: Certain aspects of this app can be very helpful, however, Erb warns that Whatsapp shouldn’t be used to replace in-person conversations. If you’re hosting a destination wedding, we recommend scheduling a trip to your wedding locale to meet with vendors in person before booking. Once you’ve fully vetted and booked your vendors, by all means, use.
