So, you both swiped right and the rest is history. If you and your fiancé met online or via a dating app, then sharing your digital “how we met” story at the wedding is a must. After all, weddings are all about incorporating personalized details and we’ve seen plenty of creative ways couples have shared their love story with guests at the wedding. Maybe it’s giving guests bags of coffee from the café where they had their first date, or perhaps they named reception tables after meaningful places, like their college alma mater a.k.a. where they first met.

If you met the love of your life online and are looking for a creative way to thank the Internet for bringing you together, then look no further—you’ll love these clever ideas that pay tribute to your online romance.
