Wedding talk is often focused on brides, and as such, bridal party discussions tend to hone in on bridesmaids. However, groomsmen have a lot to offer as well. They may not typically be the ones helping with DIY details (although you could always ask!) or throwing showers, but they are still a part of the support team. There have even been reports that groomsmen on average spend more to be in a wedding than bridesmaids do!
After getting engaged, you are probably flooded with advice of what you should do next. Call your parents and your best friend, take cute pictures to post on social media, get a manicure… the list goes on. However, there are also plenty of things you don’t want to do right after you get engaged. Not just little things immediately after, such as sharing the news online before telling your family, but in regards to decisions made in the first few weeks ahead.
With so many proposals happening during the holiday season, it is only natural to have an engagement party during the winter. Sure, some may prefer to wait until the weather improves in spring, but plenty of couples will be eager to celebrate the milestone. In fact, after the New Year, winter can feel especially dreary and a fête celebrating your love may be just the thing to brighten the spirits of your loved ones.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
