I was helping a friend of mine plan her wedding a few years back and she came to me looking for clever wedding hashtag ideas. Now at the time, I thought she was ridiculous. Why on earth would she need a customizable tag for her wedding? And then it hit me: it’s great for social media! Have your guests add your customized wedding hashtag to any photo posted of the event. That way, the bride, and groom can search the hashtag on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and see all of the photos taken at their wedding. It’s always fun to look at pictures from your wedding, especially if you haven’t gotten the professional copies back yet. Plus, if anything, a cool hashtag is a great way to show everyone just how clever you are. 😉
Just A Few Tips…
-Incorporate your hashtag into your decor as best you can. You don’t want to be obnoxious, of course, but you’ll want guests to know what hashtag to use! Put it on signs, drink sticks, photo booth props, napkins, or even on your wedding favors!
-If you pick a commonly used hashtag, you will have to sift through thousands of photographs before you find ones from your own event. Choose a unique hashtag to avoid looking through tons of photos that have nothing to do with you!
-Remember that simple is better. No one wants to type out a long hashtag that doesn’t make much sense.
