You must wait until your wedding day before showing it off. Likewise, you mustn’t post pictures of your wedding suits or rings before the wedding. Your dress is meant to be unveiled on your wedding day, give your friends something to look forward to, let them be enthusiastic about seeing what your dress will look like and make it a surprise to them.
Never talk about how stressed you are: Weddings come with tremendous pressure, and you might be tempted to talk about it online, but that is entirely uncalled for. Keep your complains off social media, people do not need to know what you go through and are not interested in what you go through, face the stress with smiles.
Don’t disclose your wedding budget: Avoid posting your budget online, you will spend plenty of money, there is no need trying to impress people by telling them how much you have spent or still spending, it is probably not their business.

If you need advice on how to go about some things, you can ask your family members or your close friends, but in all, you must avoid posting your wedding details on social media if you want to have a good home.
