How to Instagram Your Wedding

How to instagram your wedding

With all the fun and excitement that surrounds your big day you will be eager to see your wedding photographs, unfortunately it can be frustrating having to wait weeks or even months to get your photographs. However, it can be exciting when your friends and family upload some of the pictures to their social media sites or email them to you. Typically, fifty percent of your guests are likely to have their smartphones with them, Instagram is a quick and easy way to get a variety of images of your big day, and it’s a great way to get your guest be involved. Take full advantage of using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram throughout the day, as it gives people who were unable to make your special day a little sneak-peek into the day and gives you – bride, groom and wedding party something to look at right away when your wonderful day has come to an end. inst wed2 12345 Instagram doesn’t provide users with the easiest way to view posts that you have been tagged in, so creating a specific hashtag (that hasn’t been used before!) is the simplest way to view images only from your day. For example type #lillyandmaxwedding into your tag search on Instagram to view photos from the day. If you are undecided about a wedding hashtag another option is to create a profile that people can follow and this will enable them to tag your wedding in photos. Don’t worry if you already have an Instagram profile, simply log out and create a new account with a name that relates to your wedding day. This way you will always have a place you can go to that is solely for your special day. 123456 DIY photobooth Another way to incorporate Instagram into your wedding day is to provide your guests with props and backdrops, then get them to take photographs on their smart phones or an iPad, similar to a photo booth. Whether you use the hashtag or decide to upload the photos directly to your wedding profile, it will give your guests something to search for or follow when the celebrations are over. Instagram cards The easiest way to introduce your guests to this idea is by creating a card that can be placed in the invitation along with the other wedding information or placed on the tables at the reception, explaining the concept and also highlighting the selected hashtag and/or profile. I would suggest something like the image below, which is just a sample mock-up of what you could do.

Rocks & Dirty Fabulous 1960’s Inspired Vintage Photoshoot

After taking a look through all the wedding magazines for inspiration for a little collaboration with a bridal store we realised the ‘vintage’ and ‘retro’ look was not getting as much column inches as we thought it deserved.

Over the next few weeks we will be showcasing the best of vintage from the amazing Dirty Fabulous store in Dublin. Together with our jewellery we created some really special looks for you all. Get some inspiration or copy the look entirely, best of all these looks do not cost the earth. We have chosen some select pieces to get you through your retro wedding and make a statement along the way.

Here is our first 1960’s inspired shoot. Quodos to our very own Rocks lady Louise for doing a great job modelling the sparkling goods. photo 7.jpg

Our setting in Dirty Fabulous was just perfect to get a real feel for the look. It didn’t take us long to get a complete look put together with the help of Caroline from Dirty Fabulous. Louise is wearing a 1960’s Ivory Chiffon and Lace Empire gown with pearl details which can be picked up for a 1960’s price tag of €640. To complete her look we paired the gown up with a bespoke headpiece created by the very talented hands of Caroline in Dirty Fabulous. More about their fabulous pieces later!

Cameo earrings and Bracelet 1960's photo 5.jpg
We got really inspired by the gown and headpiece and decided to adorn Louise with a mixture of rose gold and silver jewellery pieces. Firstly we added pearl and cz earrings to the look to pick up on the intricate pearl details on the dress. Check out the earrings on Rocks Jewellers website if you want to get your hands on these for your own wedding day. At €49 they are perfect for the day but also for everyday wear afterwards too!Earrings 1960's photo 3.jpg

To add to the deeper tones of the ivory gown we added a Rose Gold bracelet with delicate flower detailing to pick up the subtle lace motifs on the gown. (Bracelet €70) A split shoulder rose gold and cz ring adds more colour and contrast to the look.(Ring €75)
Ring and Bracelet 1960's photo 6.jpg

Dirty Fabulous finished off the look perfectly with a hand crafted headpiece and a seperate veil delicately placed to just covers her eyes and draw your attention to the red lips, sparking pearls and intricate neckline of the dress. Check out Dirty Fabulous’ other creations here.

— Rocking @ Baselworld 2012 —

BASELWORLD 2012 DID NOT DISAPPOINT FOR ROCKS JEWELLERS

Michael, Victor and Robert Rock attending a CK Party at Baselworld 2012

Baselworld is the world’s largest watch and jewellery trade fair for watch and jewellery enthusiasts, offering up everything from popularly-priced mass market peices to exquisite one off’s – and Rocks Jewellers were there to ensure our customers will be getting the most on trend, best quality and most popular brands and products on the market today.

“Overall the experience was amazing” says Robert Rock, “ We got to see first hand what’s going to be happening down the line in jewellery and watches and we are happy to report Rocks  Jewellers are ahead of the game and in position to deliver everything that the customer will want.”

Some of the feedback from the show was as follows:-

Jewellery Trends

For jewellery, Rocks Jewellers noticed some real trends emerging at the fair and the good news is these are all available at Rocks Jewellers. Some of the most important trends included:

BlueThe colour blue coordinates well with the colour of the year for the fashion houses which is orange. From sapphire blue, aquamarine and topaz, Rocks have many of the items in store including Links of London, Tresor Paris, Thomas Sabo, Pandora and Rocks.

Jade. Pandora unveiled nephrite jade pieces in a collection of pendants, rings and earrings. All very unique and apparently their popularity is due to grow and grow this year so watch this space. Also one of our own – a stunning vintage Jade peice from Rocks also fits the bill.

Orange. The Pantone Colour Institute’s Colour of the Year was evident at the high and low ends — from topaz, garnets to cz’s — and should continue to grow in popularity throughout 2012. Thomas Sabo and Tresor Paris really have gotten hold of this trend.

PearlsFrom freshwater to cultured, pearls are becoming a prevalent choice for focal points in jewellery. Rocks Jewellers Chic Collection has developed a collection that satisfies this trend really well with attractive pricing coupled with exceptional quality and choice. Check them out! Let’s not forget Links of London and Paul Costelloe who have also done a great job introducing pearls into their collections.

One-Of-A-Kinds. People love uniqueness and while many of the most popular brands cannot gaurantee uniqueness some of the larger jewellery houses can, as statement peices. We at Rocks have so many unique peices due to have an unrivalled vintage and antique collection in store and online.

Watches

One standout watch brand is Seiko, with their new Solar watch, the impressive timepiece, powered by solar cells in the dial eliminating the need for batteries, can adjust itself to the time and location of the world’s 39 time zones at the gentle push of a button, thanks to signals from at least four GPS satellites, which the watch is always in contact. It is the first timepiece able to adapt immediately to all of the world’s time zones, wherever the wearer travels. That’s why Seiko calls it “the first global watch.”

“Overall we were delighted to be part of the fair and it will help us ensure we are ahead of the game when it comes to delivering the best jewellery to our customers now and way into the future.”
