How to Pick a Wedding Hashtag
Customs and traditions have always been a big part of a wedding ceremony. Many of these have been passed down from generation to generation over hundreds of years and are present in both untraditional and traditional ceremonies. Over the years, we have added even more modern traditions and customs. A new fun practice that has gained popularity recently with Millennials especially is creating your wedding hashtag for social media posting.
For many couples deciding on a hashtag has become a big part of wedding planning. As wedding planners, one of the things we will ask when we start planning your wedding is “do you have a hashtag?” Most of your guests will have smart phones and will be taking selfies, and photos throughout your wedding festivities.
Posting the photos and using your hashtag will allow you to search and find all the photos your guests share to various social media platforms. Remember to request only the professional photographer take photos during the ceremony and that you will want to see these images.
You want the hashtag to be as original as possible, easy to remember, short and relevant. Big Day Weddings reminds you to search for the hashtag online to ensure no one else has had the same idea. Be clever with your choices, for example, if your married name will be Lee consider using #HappiLEEmarried or #HappiLEEforever.
Share your hashtag with everyone to encourage your guests to post their photos instead of just keeping them on their phone.
It is always fun to include your hashtag on invitations to pre-wedding parties. Posting a cute sign at the home where the party is being held is a good idea for encouraging guests to share the party pictures.
At Big Day Weddings one of our suggestions for sharing at the wedding venue is to create a cute chalkboard with your hashtag. You can display the chalkboard on an easel or table top. For more clever ideas check out our Pinterest board.
