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!
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 included after the punctuation mark 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.
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. Wedding Hashers employs actual writers to help you come up with something original after collecting as much information as possible.
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, you have a great start! Or perhaps your hometown or wedding location can make your alliteration like “Love in Lancaster” or “Match Made In Missouri”. Combining both alliteration and wordplay is a hashtag double play! #ItTakesTwotoThompson

Don’t be afraid to ask the wedding party, a Wichita 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.
