In this increasingly exciting digital world run by social media, it was only a matter of time before it entered the wedding realm. Specifically hashtags. Hashtags are the perfect way to narrow down searches of content on social media. How can this apply to your wedding? Well, you can customize your own specific hashtag that your guests get to use the night of your wedding. They can post photos, stories, or tweet about that perfect night. It’s a customizable album at your fingertips created right at the moment. There’s no better way to get multiple perspectives from your guest’s point of view than using a wedding hashtag!
Let’s Do This – Wedding Hashtag Help is Here!
What Not To Include in a Hashtag
Be sure to not include any spaces or punctuation since hashtags don’t read them. In fact, everything after the punctuation marks 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. Hashtags end wherever you place punctuation, so stick to the pound symbol at the beginning only. Period.
Avoid Intricacy with Initials
Using your initials in a hashtag can help keep the hashtag short and easy to remember! It can also be difficult to find something to rhyme with multi-syllable names, but many initials like B, T, and D, all rhyme! You can then keep your hashtag memorable, quick-to-type, and uncomplicated! For example, #RomanticallyPandD or #TplusBequalsMatrimony.
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

Don’t be afraid to ask the wedding party, a Melbourne or Florida wedding Facebook group, or online wedding forums for help. A bestie or stranger may be able to help you decide between a few options or bring an idea to light that hasn’t even crossed your mind yet.
