Tips to create your wedding hashtag

Posted on September 29, 2017 at 3:35 PM


1. Make it personal. Incorporate your names, nicknames, wedding date, or a play on words. The goal is for it to reflect you as a couple. Be creative! Feel free to add in humor, alliteration or a rhyme.


2. Keep it short and sweet. Shorten or combine words to create something unique. Try to swap out commonly misspelled words for easier one, if possible.


3. Capitalize the first letter of each word. Capitalize the first letter of each word can help with readability if guests can see where each word starts and ends. (With or without the capitalization, your hashtag will work the same way.)


4. Check the hashtag. Do a check of the hashtag to see if there's already been something tagged to it, and if so, how many photos. If it doesn't yield any or just a handful of results, you are probably in the clear. If it does have a lot of results though, you might want to reconsider.


5. Use it early and often. Do not wait until your wedding day to use your hashtag, if you start from the very beginning it will leave you with a collection of images documenting the entire wedding process.


6. Spread the word. Start by telling your wedding party your hashtag and put it on your save the dates, wedding website, cocktail napkins and anywhere you can. A formal wedding invitation is not an appropriate location for a hashtag but just about everywhere else is acceptable.
