After years of people telling me how amazing Snapchat is, I have finally caved and joined in with the fun and I have to admit I have become a little obsessed! It has been just under a week since I created my account and it is already my favourite form of social media. The thing I love about it the most, is that is so personal! Your images don’t have to so curated as with Instagram, all content is totally organic and really opens up a new dimension to people’s lives.

Follow Bespoke Bride on Snapchat 3

Because of this both myself and Jess have decided to create our own separate personal accounts instead of a dedicated Bespoke Bride account. We share all other forms of social media, all of which are highly curated so this will be a chance for you to get to know us on a more personal level and we are so excited about it. Don’t get me wrong we will still be sharing lots of Bespoke Bride stuff, mainly behind the scenes, photoshoots, upcoming DIY’s and events, but there will also be the odd brekkie pic thrown in there, lots OF stuff about our pets and much much more!
