Nowadays, though, it’s a whole different story: Rarely do we meet a couple who isn’t having some sort of post-wedding party, and in most cases, there’s plenty of planning going into it, too.

Here’s a look at place cards Dianna created for a wedding.

There’s a whole host of reasons why we love social media, but perhaps our favorite part about Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is that they give us an opportunity to discover and connect with new local wedding vendors who are not currently on our radar.
