5 things bridesmaids should never post to social media

In the age of social media, it’s all too easy to get click-happy about your best friend’s wedding.

In the age of social media, it’s all too easy to get click-happy about your best friend’s wedding.

And who can blame you? You’ve ploughed money, time and effort into helping your pal get ready for her big day, trotting along to everything from wedding fairs to dress fittings.

You want to share your pride, your dedication, and all the pretty details of the day.

But sharing snaps of the bride’s big day can easily land you in hot water – if you don’t follow the rules.

Here are 5 things you should definitely steer clear of putting on social media (if you don’t want to feel the wrath of a bridezilla.)

The bride in her dress before the wedding
It should go without saying but it’s amazing how many bridesmaids get this wrong. Maybe you’re overexcited that after ten hours of dress shopping she’s finally bloody chosen one, or you’re overcome with emotion as you get ready with her on the day, but either way - don’t do it.

How much of a bridezilla she’s being
Every bride has her moments. And when your friend has hers, you need to remain calm. Try to resist the urge to share her unreasonableness with the internet. Just take a deep breath, and carry on.

Comments on how gross your bridesmaid dress is
Thinking of a funny caption to go with your bridesmaid dress photo? Just don’t do it. The majority of brides don’t set out to choose something you’ll look hideous in. So don’t upset her unnecessarily by claiming you look like a marshmallow, canary or drag queen.

Embarrassing bachelorette snaps
She’s had a great time, maybe too great a time and you want to show the world what a wild crew you all are. But take it from us, she’s not going to appreciate you posting a photo of her passed out on the floor at 3AM after one too many tequilas. Just keep it for your private collection (or wedding card!)

How crap the weather is going to be
She will be worried enough about this as it is. If it looks like rain, offer to pick up umbrellas rather than moaning.
