Wedding Wednesdays: Wed Pics

Today I'm introducing my first real series!

It's been 5 years since I tied that knot but I still love wedding "planning."  Pinterest has been a demon filling my head with all these beautiful ideas that I wish I had thought of way back when and since we're in the mist of wedding season I thought this might be a fun summer series to add to the blog.



Just over a week ago we went to our first wedding in a while and it was beautiful!  Tara, the bride, had planned everything so beautifully and it was so much fun to see everything she had shown us over the last year and a half come together.  Possibly my favorite thing about her wedding was her use of Wed Pics!


It's an app that takes wedding photo sharing to the next level.  This is a great alternative to the #hashtag instagram wedding craze that I still love, but I feel this is 100xs better!

The bride and groom set up an account, one of them will be the administrator, they give that account to their friends and through out the wedding and after guest can upload videos and pictures.  My only issue with it is that it only takes 15 seconds of video at a time, but the picture sharing works perfectly.

What makes this app stand out and above from the #hashtags on instagram is that anyone who is logged in can see all the pictures that are posted, they can be shared, and even printed out, plus the pictures can be organized by where they were taken.  It's one stop shopping at it's best.  It's like the modern version of leaving disposable cameras on the tables for guests to get candid moments that the photographer might have missed, but even better because the administrator can go through and edit any photos they deem to be inappropriate.  (Hooray for no more down the pants pics that people seem to think are so hilarious!)



Check it out, and use it for your wedding, or recommend it to your friends that are getting married.  You will not regret it!

**disclaimer** I have no been paid or contacted by Wed Pics in anyway.  This is all my own opinion!

Been to any weddings lately and want to brag on something new that you've seen?  Let me know, I'll be looking for guest posters all summer!

  1. That's really cool! We loved seeing our friends' pictures and videos online afterward.

    My husband actually live-streamed my mom's wedding because her husband had some family who couldn't travel to the wedding.

  5. Oh wow, I've never heard of this app before - what an awesome idea!! We used a wedding hashtag on Instagram, but not everyone has that!! Thanks so much for linking up with us! Just so you know, you're a "no reply" blogger, so I couldn't reply directly to your comment on my post.

    1. Oh! I didn't know that! I'll have to figure out how to change that! Thank you!

  6. I've seen that app and am debating if I want to use it. I also like that guest can share more than just one photo which is probably all that they would post on instagram in a given night. There are a lot of pros for using it!
