What every bride to be should know about Instagram

As a bride-to-be you're obviously looking to soak up as much wedding inspiration as you possibly can - so that your big day looks and feels just the way you've always wanted it to.

Instagram is a photo app that will inspire you

So today I'm going to tell you about Instagram. You may or may not have already come across this photo-based app but I think it is a fabulous way to gather quick wedding inspiration, share ideas and get feedback.

Dessy has an Instagram account now and it's proving popular. Yesterday I went to a fabulous bridal show in London called The White Gallery, attended catwalk shows, chatted to accessories, wedding dress and bridal shoes designers and took literally MASSES of photographs to share with Dessy followers.

If you want to take a look, just download the Instagram app, set up an account for yourself, search for Dessy Group and you'll find out what we've been up to.

So how can you use Instagram to plan your own wedding?

Well, you can follow Twitter users you find interesting. You can take photographs of any wedding-related stuff that captures your eye and post it to get feedback, share it on Facebook or your own Twitter account. You can also see what else is happening in the wedding world by following certain hashtags (these things # ) like #brides, #weddings #cakes #flowers.

And of course, if you fancy yourself as a photographer there are no limits to your imagination and you'll find some easy to use photo editing software on the app that lets you play with your images to make them look especially arty and sharp!
