Lilac Love Wedding Wednesday

LilacLove

As I waited for class this morning, a girl walked out with the brightest and cutest lilac pants. I couldn’t help but feel compelled to use that bright color on my latest inspiration board. This intimate wedding is simple yet sophisticated. Bright purple dresses matching the groomsmens’ ties. The purple is sure to pop on the greenery backdrop with the white arches. Purple is sure to be on the radar for any LSU fan. Happy wednesday!

Lemon Bunch Brunch Wedding Wednesday

Lemon Bunch Brunch

As I flipped through the Kate Spade 2014 Spring Style Guide I couldn’t help but imagine sipping lemonade on the back porch on a sunny day. This inspired a bridal shower brunch full of bright yellows and blues. Guests can chose any type of lemonade from the lemonade bar. The tables feature soft simple flowers in an array of blue colored vases. This bride is all about bold patterns in a subtle way like in this gorgeous invitation suite.

#NextMissLSU

For this video project, I created a video to promote the Miss LSU-USA Pageant of which I am a co-director for. I first analyzed my video using the analytic tool: Tweet Reach. Tweet Reach says my tweet with the video reached an estimated amount of 1,227 accounts. It has 1,815 estimated impressions. Three people besides myself retweeted the video. 

On my Vine account, it says my video was only liked and re-vined by one person. On my Facebook account, I posted it twice and got a total of 3 likes. 

I tweeted the video 4 times since Sunday when I posted it. Overall, I received 5 favorites, 5 retweets, and 1 response. 

I believe that over the past 2 days my video has reached a good amount of people. I wish we would have been given this assignment this week instead of last week so I could have used footage from the actual pageant. Although, that would have been next to impossible; therefore, I don’t wish that. It probably would have reached more people though. 

After analyzing this video and its reach, it almost baffles me that what I say and post really is seen by that many people. 

Spring Fling

SpringFling

With today’s gorgeous weather, not too hot and not too cold, I’ve got spring on my mind.

Imagine a bright outdoor ceremony filled with pink flowers. The brides bouquet has a mixture of pink and white flowers, as does her cake. The bridesmaids look absolutely lovely in a green cocktail dress! Pink koozies for the ladies and green for the gents! This wedding is sure to be one to remember!

Score What?

For our most recent assignment in strategic social media, we were given the task of evaluating our social media accounts for the weekend. We had to track the amount of likes, favorites, retweets and comments over the course of almost three days. I was not on social media as much as I usually am this weekend due to a busy schedule. I only tweeted 4 times and instagrammed 2 pictures. My scores were as follows:

Twitter: 4 Tweets

4 favorites + 3 retweets (x3) = 19 Twitter Score
 
Instagram: 2 pictures
54 likes + 3 comments (x3) = 64 Instagram Score
 
I believe one particular tweet about a groom’s face as he sees his bride for the first time was the most successful tweet. I received 3 favorites and 3 retweets off that one alone. The first picture I instagrammed of my new Tieks was the more successful of the two pictures posted. I received 25 likes and 3 comments.
I believe I could have gotten a much higher score on Twitter if I had actually tried. I have rarely even looked at Twitter over the past two days, let alone tweet. I believe this assignment was very helpful for gauging my interactions. 

 

 

Masquerade Soiree

Masquerade Soiree

Apparently I need to make my Wedding Wednesdays into Wedding Thursdays. I promise to be on time from this point on.

With the recent Mardi Gras holiday, I couldn’t help but be inspired by the tradition of long standing krewes. Members of the court are presented in themed costumes with masks covering their face. Members also ride with their identity concealed behind the masks during the parade. What better way to put a hint of Mardi Gras in your wedding festivities than a Masquerade Engagement Party. The bride in a lace ivory cocktail dress with adorable black lace booties. Black, gold and lace cover the intimate gathering of family and friends. The invitations match the beautiful pattern on the cake. Happy wishes to the glamarous engaged couple.
