How to Create a Wedding Hashtag

How to Create a Wedding Hashtag

9.13.21

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. 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. At your 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! 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!

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 the Lou” or “Match Made In Missouri”. Combining both alliteration and wordplay is a hashtag double play! #ItTakesTwotoThompson

Poll The Audience

When it comes to creating a clever wedding hashtag, the more brainpower, resources, and assistance, the better! Don’t be afraid to ask the wedding party, a St. Louis 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.
