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. A hashtag serves as a customizable album at your fingertips. There’s no better way to get multiple perspectives from your guest’s point of view than using a wedding hashtag!
Wedding Hashtag Help is Here!
The Purpose of the Wedding Hashtag
Hashtags are great for connecting all event content on social media. Wedding guests are able to share photos and videos all using the same hashtag. This makes it super easy to see all the posts from your big day! (A hashtag is your chosen phrase preceded by the pound symbol.) 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. Maybe you have a hashtag for wedding prep, the bachelor or bachelorette party, AND the actual wedding day if you love content creation! 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!
What Not To Include in a Hashtag
Do not include any spaces or punctuation since hashtags don’t read them. In fact, everything after the punctuation marks won’t appear. 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.
Online Wedding Hashtag Generators
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, the sole purpose of some companies is to assist in the creation of 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.
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.
