10 years ago, hashtags were unheard of in the context of wedding planning. But now that practically everyone is a social media user, it’s pretty much become a wedding essential.
Hashtags let you neatly organize and immortalize your wedding moments on the internet. Of course you can still go old school and have them printed and stored in physical photo albums, but having a digital collection is pretty convenient too!
Look at how convenient it is to look for photos uploaded by your guests:
We’re pretty sure you’ve noticed some of the best and wittiest (and punny) celebrity wedding hashtags: #PITTurePerfect, #TheWanForAnne, and #aKhoandmyBELOved. Makes you want to come up with your own, right?
Well if you’re in the middle of wedding planning, it’s definitely time to decide on this! Don’t worry if you’re feeling stuck — your wedding coordinators will be more than glad to help you with this.
Or you can also keep reading to know how to come up with the perfect wedding hashtag! We’ll discuss the process that we use to get the best wedding hashtag that best suits the couple.
Ready? Let’s dive in!
1. Start with your names
For the first step, we’ll start with the basics: your names. If you’re planning to have a more formal wedding, it’d be fitting to stick with a hashtag that also reflects the overall vibe of the occasion.
Got a cute ‘loveteam’ name? This is the perfect opportunity to use that, too! For example: #Kimerald2019 or #KimeraldForever.
2. Get punny
This might be the most popular kind of wedding hashtags. And why not? It’s fun and gives you a one-of-a-kind hashtag to use!
To create a pun with your names, just think of rhymes, sound-alikes, and common phrases. Here are some examples to get you inspired:
This creative hashtag will definitely get your guests laughing!
3. Add numbers
If you both have pretty common names, you can also incorporate a number that’s special to you or the date of your wedding. This will set your hashtag apart so you can easily look up tagged posts and photos online!
Furthermore, there are quite a few things that need to be considered in choosing your wedding hashtag. Remember: you’ll be using it years even years after so you really got to nail it right on the head.
Here are the most important things to keep in mind:
Is your hashtag unique enough to stay exclusive for your wedding? Or is another couple likely to use it for their own, too?
Can guests easily remember your hashtag? This is important, especially since they’re most likely to upload photos of your wedding on-the-spot.
You’re gonna have to plaster your hashtag on your wedding stationery and even on event decor. Make sure it’s not too long!
Since you’re not allowed to use spaces, you can ensure readability by capitalizing the first letter of each word.
With all these considered, you’ll be sure to have the perfect wedding hashtag! Don’t forget to put in on your save-the-date cards, invitations, reception decor, and remind your emcee to announce it, too!
The most important is that your guests won’t miss it, so you can see later on the photos they took of your special day!
