Let’s Do This – Wedding Hashtag Help is Here!
What Are These Pound Signs About?!
First off, you should understand how hashtags (a word or phrase preceded by the pound symbol) work. When a certain hashtag is used on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, it makes that photo or video now discoverable. For example, after using our hashtag #partywithcomplete, you can click on it or add it to the search bar. By doing so, you will see all the other content where guests use the hashtag.
The Purpose of the Wedding Hashtag
Hashtags are great for connecting all event content on social media. It’s easy to see the posts from your wedding if your guests share photos and videos using the same hashtag. You can also use a hashtag in content leading up to your event to keep all your wedding planning content connected to the big day. If you’re big on frequent content creation, maybe you have a hashtag for wedding prep, the bachelor or bachelorette party, AND the actual wedding day! In short, if you and your guests, along with wedding vendors, (plus those jealous they didn’t get an invite) want to see all the fun content from your memorable day shared on social, a hashtag is great to view it all easily from the various people posting about it!
What Not To Include in a Hashtag
Be sure to not include any spaces or punctuation since hashtags don’t read them. Everything included after won’t be included. Also, don’t use any symbols, like dollar signs, asterisks, exclamation points, commas, periods, and apostrophes. This also means you have to type out the word, and can’t use the “and” symbol: &. If you were to try to do #WeddingofSarah&Joseph, only the #WeddingofSarah would be picked up since hashtags end wherever you place punctuation. Stick to the pound symbol at the beginning only. Period.
There are free online wedding hashtag generators that help eliminate having to use any human brainpower! These resources collect information about you and your partner, plus your wedding date and location to come up with options for you. There are popular online websites that provide a hashtag generator, like WeddingWire and Shutterfly. In fact, some companies are dedicated to the sole purpose of creating a wedding hashtag, like Wedding Hashers. They employ actual writers to help you come up with something original after collecting as much information as possible. We’ll take all the help we can get!
