5. What's your stance on guests posting on social media at your wedding?

Mostly A's: Reel It In!
Mayday! You're in the matrimonial danger zone. Pump the brakes on the updates if you like having friends.

Mostly B's: Only Slightly Annoying
Some of your less sentimental friends have probably removed you from their newsfeed already, but if you're okay with that, keep on keeping on.

Mostly C's: The Perfect Mix
If only all brides could mimic your appropriate, but excited bridal behavior. You've got this shtick down.

Mostly D's: Hello? Are You There?
Privacy is your middle name (well actually you would never share your middle name on social media) and a wedding is no exception. Most people on your social networks don't even know you're engaged.
