Build buzz and animate the experience with wedding hashtags. Planning a wedding can be stressful, so make time for fun. Get ideas for hashtags that celebrate your wedding experience. We share 5 tips to help create memorable hashtags for your big day.
Step 1. Begin with the basics.
Use your first, last and nicknames as your starting point. Remember the catchy name that your friends gave you in college? Well, this may be the time you actually own it; use it in a fun way to get guests to remember the hashtag and share salutations about the big day.
Step 2. Numbers set your hashtag apart.
If you have a common name then your hashtag may get swamped in cyberspace. If you can't come up with any quirky tags, using the year or date of your wedding is an easy way to make it your own. There may be many of #MikeandMary in the world, but you'll probably be the only #MikeandMary33015!
Step 3. Wordplay.
Have fun with this part of your wedding. Express your creativity using alliterations, rhymes, synonyms and puns for a hashtag that's both clever and festive.
Step 4. Do your hashtag homework.
A hashtag check before you post or tweet, can save time, energy and embarrassment. If there's already something connected to a hashtag you want to use, first see how many photos are associated with the tag. If there are only a few photos that are not wedding related then it should be okay to use that hashtag. However, if there are wedding photos linked to that hashtag, then consider adding numbers such as the date to make your tag unique.
Step 5. Share the word.
Once you’ve picked a hashtag, it’s time to tweet it out. Give your bridal party the greenlight and put the tag on your save the date announcements. Have a reminder sign at the wedding to encourage guest to share shout outs of love on your big day.
