Your daily Insta scroll is fast becoming an essential part of your wedding inspiration mission and quite frankly, we don’t blame you! From amazing hairstyles to cool DIY ideas, it’s an Aladdin’s cave of incredible inspiration.

All of this double tapping has increased your wedding wish list majorly and now it’s costing you those hard-earned dollars. Here’s the ways that Instagram is upping your wedding spend…

1. You’ve fallen in love with every dessert trend out there. Doughnut wall? Check! Cake pops? On it! Macaron favours? For sure! Well, the guests are going to be hungry…

FOOD AND DRINK IDEAS TO WOW YOUR WEDDING GUESTS

2. Your initial ideas of having a quiet seaside break in St Ives or a weekend away in Paris have been totally blown out of the water thanks to your explore feed being full of incredible shots of The Maldives. It must be fate!

3. You’ve clocked that your bridesmaids have been liking a lot of fine jewellery designers – it’s time to do a mass order of super-cute wishbone pendants!

4. It’s now become apparent that wedding cake swings are totally a thing which means you must order one immediately!

HOW TO HALVE YOUR WEDDING BUDGET WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING

5. #girlsquad has convinced you that having 5+ bridesmaids is definitely the way to go. Thinking about how cool your gang will look in the pics might distract you from the maths of dress + shoes + bag x 5 = £££

6. Your post-wedding wardrobe will, without a doubt, require wifey branded jackets (leather and denim), shoes and bags. How else will everyone know that you're newly married? Duh!

7. You’re now following wedding dress designers from around the globe and chances are you’ll fall in love with an incredible Israeli design that will cost and arm and a leg for postage and packaging. OOPS!

8. Once you’ve seen a meerkat in a tux and an alpaca with a floral garland, it’s only a matter of time before you want to get all of your furry friends in on the action – not forgetting their wedding-worthy outfits too. Just need to think of a way to get a top hat on the goldfish now…
