The Best of 2016 in Creative Weddings from Brenda’s Wedding Blog

You’re going to love the wedding trends I’m sharing today as I'm unveiling the best in creative weddings from 2016.

But, first - let me say a few things for those of you that are returning in the new year or who are coming here for the first time . . .

I want to take a moment to say Happy New Year to . . .
all the brides returning to my blog this year
all the newly engaged couples finding my site for the first time
all the creative wedding pros looking for the best way to market their business in this ever changing industry where social media continues to play a big part in being seen and found by brides

I’m a firm believer that 2017 is the year of Instagram. At the end of last year, so many new features were added that have made this social media platform the best it has ever been.

I am so excited for 2017 and to continue expanding on the amazing connections I’ve made thru Instagram. I can’t wait to grow and make more connections to keep building an amazing community of creative business owners and brides looking to plan their creative wedding.

Instagram is one of the most powerful social media platforms {along with Pinterest, but I’ll save that for another day}. Today, it’s all about Instagram - a terrific platform for growing your brand and reaching opportunities you never knew existed. I'm now ready to share my most liked Top Nine Instagram Posts from 2016 with you. I love how the posts that made the final cut match so well together and while I personally thought brighter colors would have been the winner - I can definitely see what my audience is loving the most with these choices. Are you ready for the results? . . .
