Wedding hashtags have become extremely popular in the past few years because they are a great way for guests to share memories from your special day on social media! A wedding hashtag is especially useful as it helps gather all of the photos that guests take into one place, making it so much easier for the couple to relive all of the special moments from their wedding day!

Want to create a hashtag for your wedding, but don’t know where to begin? Here are a few tips to help you pick your wedding hashtag:

Pick the tone of your hashtag first

Do you want your hashtag to be cute, funny, involve puns, or would you rather keep it simple? Picking the tone of your hashtag first will make it so much easier for you to come up with ideas. A couple who wants a punny hashtag won’t end up using the same words and phrases as a couple who wants a simple hashtag, so you can use the desired tone of your hashtag to help choose the vocabulary and wording, which is obviously very important.

Include last names in the hashtag

Most couples incorporate names in their hashtag, whether it be last names, first names, or even nicknames. This is a great way to make your wedding hashtag personal, unique, and memorable.

Don’t be afraid to ask friends, family members, or even the internet for help!

We get it, it can be difficult to come up with a wedding hashtag, especially when you want everything to be perfect for your special day. That’s why you shouldn’t be afraid to ask your friends, family members, or even the internet for help or inspiration! Ask any friends or family members if they had a wedding hashtag and what that wedding hashtag was, or browse through Pinterest for inspiration. Many people even ask for wedding hashtag ideas on social media; Instagram and Facebook are great resources if you are feeling stuck.

Get creative!

Everyone that attends your wedding will see your hashtag, so the more memorable it is, the better! You don’t want to choose a cookie-cutter hashtag that has been used hundreds of times before, so try to get your creative juices flowing while thinking of hashtag ideas! Many people like to include alliteration or rhyming in their wedding hashtag because it can make it sound much more catchy. You can even include the year of your wedding into the hashtag to make it that much more personal.

Bonus Tips:

    1. Be sure to capitalize the first letter of each of the words in your hashtag. This makes it much easier to read.
    2. Don’t overcomplicate things. No one wants to feel like they can’t understand your hashtag, so try to keep vocabulary simple and easy to understand; This will also eliminate the opportunity for typos.
    3. Check any potential wedding hashtags that you come up with on social media to make sure that it has not already been used by another couple!
