The Purpose of the Wedding Hashtag
Hashtags are great for connecting all event content on social media. At your wedding, your guests can share photos and videos and all using the same hashtag. This makes it super easy to see all the posts from your big day! You can also use a hashtag in content leading up to your event. This can help 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, 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, and everything included after won’t be included. 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.
Sounds About Right
A play-on-words like #FairyTaylorWedding makes for a witty phrase that will impress! Using wordplay with phrases that sound similar to your first or last names is best for those wanting a creative hashtag. There are many popular pair phrases like “Two Peas in a Pod” “It Takes Two to Tango”, romantic sayings like “Lucky in Love”, “Love At First Sight”, and “Happily Ever After”, or numerous statements common to weddings, like “Getting Hitched”, “Down the Aisle”, “To Have and to Hold” or “Tying the Knot” that can be manipulated slightly to make your wedding hashtag.
Alliteration & Assonance
Find phrases or words that can create alliteration in your hashtag! Alliteration is when there are multiple words that start with the same consonant letter or that have the same sound, used in one statement. (When using repeating vowels, it’s called assonance!) You’ll see this often in titles or headlines, for example, “Man on the Moon”, “Magical Murray”, or “Horton Hears A Who!” If your names start with the same letter, like Jessica and Jacob – awesome, you have a great start! Or perhaps your hometown or wedding location can make your alliteration like “Love in Lancaster” or “Match Made In Michigan”. Combining both alliteration and wordplay is a hashtag double play! #ItTakesTwotoThompson
