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!

The Purpose of the Wedding Hashtag
Hashtags are great for connecting all event content on social media. Wedding 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! (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 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. Stick to the pound symbol at the beginning only. Period.
What’s more fun than a clever rhyme!? Since there are so many unique names, it’s best to first see what rhymes with you or your partner’s name. This can help you identify if anything is usable for your hashtag. Rhymezone helps identify all the words and phrases that rhyme with your name. You can also see what rhymes with your wedding location, last names, or any word or phrase!
Using a rhyme resource can quickly help you identify if a word is even applicable for a rhyming hashtag. For example, there are not too many romantic or wedding-themed words that rhyme with Sara or Tara, (unless you’re getting married at the Riviera or you love marinara?!). However, there are more options for Taylor (#JoeplusTaylorisGreater), Britney (#MeetThomasandBritneyinTennesse), and Megan (#NoMoreMaidenMegan).
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”. There are also numerous statements common to weddings, like “Getting Hitched”, “Down the Aisle”, “To Have and to Hold” or “Tying the Knot”. All of these sayings can be manipulated slightly to make your wedding hashtag.
