Create Your Unique Wedding Hashtag in 5 Steps


Create your wedding hashtag with 5 easy steps.

Unless you haven’t been to a wedding in the last 5 years, you know that wedding hashtags are a thing for modern brides and grooms! You likely started thinking of your unique hashtag not long after you received some new bling for your left hand. We don’t blame you – it’s a fun way to get motivated and jump into planning.

But you don’t want a hashtag that’s overly complicated to remember or too simple to get people excited — like Goldilocks once said — you want one that’s juuuuust right! Here are some tips! 

Step 1: Start with Your Names

Don’t over think it and start with the basics. Write down your first, last and nicknames as your wedding hashtag starting point. Did you have a celebrity nickname like ‘Brangelina’ when you were dating? Well, this may be the time you actually want to embrace it. You want something easy for guests to remember so they’ll use it (especially when the drinks start flowing).

Step 2: Stand Out With Numbers

If you don’t have any unique factors to your names, using the year or date of your wedding is an easy way to make your wedding hashtag your own or any numbers you and your fiance have in common!

Step 3: Play on words

Look for alliterations, rhymes, synonyms and puns for a wedding hashtag that’s both clever and memorable. For instance, with the last name Martz, why not try something like, #MartzingDowntheAisle – get it??? Cute, clever, unique! 

Step 4: Proper Punctuation

Your cleverness & creativity will be noticed more if you capitalize the first letter of each word. Simply helps with memory and readability if guests can see where each word starts and ends. But keep in mind whether your guests use the capitalization or not, your wedding hashtag will still generate on Instagram.

Step 5: Spread the Word

After you’ve decided on a wedding hashtag, don’t forget to tell everyone! Start with your wedding party and if you can come up with it early enough, putting it on your save-the-date cards and / or wedding website would be HUGE! Even throw it on your wedding invitation. Also, have little friendly reminders throughout the reception. Cute signs that match your decor at the bar or cocktail tables or have it printed on your menu!
