The Dos And Don'ts Of Having A Wedding Hashtag

August 6, 2015 by Linda DiProperzio
shefinds | Weddings

Thanks to smart phones, couples can rely on more than just their photographer to document every detail of their wedding day. In fact, guests can sometimes capture behind-the-scenes moments and perspectives that the bride and groom might miss during their whirlwind day. To make sure they see all of it, many couples are creating wedding hashtags so every pic is easy to find. Before you make your own, check out these dos and don’ts to make sure you create the right hashtag for your big day.

DO be creative. While using your married last name is the simplest way to create a hashtag, you don’t want to be too general—especially if you have a common name. You can do something to set it apart (#TheSmithWeddingNYC), or get more creative by adding a wedding-themed word (#JenandJeffGetHitched) or a funny rhyme (#BenandSueSayIDo).

DON’T use all lower case letters. Capitalizing each word is the best way for guests to learn the hashtag and make sure it is used properly.

DO make it easy to remember. The whole point of the hashtag is for people will actually use it. If you make it overly complicated, you risk people forgetting it or using the wrong one.

DON’T use symbols. Most successful hashtags consist solely of letters–no symbols, numbers or dashes.

DO research your hashtag. Before you decide on a hashtag, be sure to check to see if anyone else is using it. If you see several mentions of it on Twitter and Instagram, then you want to come up with an alternative.

DON’T overthink it. The hashtag is supposed to be a fun part of the wedding day–and also make your life easier when it comes to tracking wedding day photos—so don’t drive yourself crazy trying to come up with the most creative and unique one. If you’re really stuck, check out Wedding Wire’s Hashtag Creator, which can do all the work for you.

DO spread the word. Once you finalize your hashtag, it’s time to let your guests know about it. Be sure to announce it on your wedding website, in the wedding programs, on your Facebook pages–you might even want to have a sign printed to display at the ceremony and reception.
