Many couples enjoy all elements of social media during their wedding planning process and creating a fun hashtag is a must for their big day. Creating a hashtag is a great way to get your family and friends engaged in your wedding day and pre-wedding day festivities. It is also a way for you to locate and keep the photos taken by them. Candid photos are special keepsakes for years to come so and having a way to consolidate all the photos in one place with a hashtag is convenient and super easy!
Below are a few fun tips to think about when creating your hashtag:
- When trying to brainstorm wedding hashtags try incorporating your first or last names, wedding location, the state you're getting married in or perhaps where you both met. Look for alliterations, rhymes, synonyms and puns for a hashtag that are both clever and memorable. Remember that cutesy name your friends gave you guys in college that stuck for some reason? This could be a fun way to bring it back. :) Tip: Capitalizing the first letter of each word can help with readability if guests can see where each word starts and ends.
- Once you and your fiancee chose your wedding hashtag let everyone know what it is! You can do so by sharing on your wedding website, save the date or on the signage on your wedding day.
- A lot of couples start using their hashtag for all wedding-related events like showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties so spread the word on Instagram or Facebook right away. :)
Happy hash-tagging! :)
