First, create a Wedding folder in your Koofr account. You can create a folder structure inside the Wedding folder for all of the most important aspects of your wedding and keep track of everything from contracts with your providers, important documents and photos for your wedding vision.

(2) During the wedding

If you are recently married or planning a wedding you probably know couples nowadays create their custom wedding hashtags (#) so their guests can share wedding photos on Instagram and other social media.

But we have an even better idea for you. Create a Wedding Photos folder inside your Koofr account. Set up a Receive files link and share it on your wedding invitation or your other wedding stationery. This way guests can upload photos to this folder during your wedding or after. This way you can easily gather the candid shots your guests make during your big event.

You can make the link protected with a password or unprotected (if you want to share it via social media) and customize the expiration date. With a paid Koofr account you can even customize and personalize your upload link –add your names for example (see picture below). If you want to be notified when your guest upload files into your folder check the box next to Notify at the bottom of the pop-up.

Your guests can upload photos taken with their phones, without needing the Koofr mobile app or even a Koofr account. And, they can also send the photos to the Koofr generated email address and their photos will appear in your Receive files folder.

(3) After the wedding

And finally,

Share your photos with your wedding guests.

Nowadays it is highly likely that you will receive your wedding photos in a digital form - either from your official photographer or from your guests. Koofr offers you some excellent and eco-friendly and wallet-friendly sharing options to deliver those photos to your family and friends.

Which sharing options are available in Koofr?

If your guests are tech-savvy, you can use the Add people option, which allows the added people to also manage your folder. You can simply add anyone with their e-mail addresses and click Add. This way you can share your photos with anyone who owns an email address and non-members will be invited to join Koofr. They will have to join before they can view your photos.

If your wedding party is huge, it might be easier to use the already mentioned Share link option, which will enable your guests to download files/folders from your Koofr account, even if they are not Koofr users. You can easily share the link via e-mail or social media (if the link is unprotected), protect the link with a password and set a custom expiration date. If you are a paid Koofr user, you can also customize your download link, like we did (see picture below).
