Everyone likes to take photos of weddings. But unless the couple allowed you to, don’t immediately post them on social media. “The rules are to not post anything on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram until after the couple has had a chance to do so,” says Larissa Banting, creator of the Lazy Bride Blog.

If the couple has set up a wedding hashtag, then it’s safe to assume that they’re fine with social media. Otherwise, wait for the couple to post first.
