Wedding Hashtags

While cell phone etiquette is a big YES as a wedding guest, there is no denying that we are smack dab in the middle of a social media revolution. It is no surprise that weddings have found their place on social media in almost every form. From engagement announcements to personalized Snapchat filters, social media can be a great platform to share the journey of one of the biggest moments in your life with friends and family. Wedding hashtags are a rising trend among couples that want to encourage guests to share their celebration in a way that allows all posts to be located with a single click on social media.

The best place to start when creating your own wedding hashtag is with your names. You can mash together you and your fiancé’s names and pull a #Bradgelina. Or, you can get clever and do a play on words. Simplicity is key when it comes to wedding hashtags because you want your guests to 1) easily remember it when they go to post and 2) easily find it when they go to search for it. Complicated spelling or wordy hashtags will make your guests less inclined to throw it on the end of their posts. There are also websites available to generate a wedding hashtag for you. At weddinghashtagwall.com you can enter in your names and voila! A list of possible hashtags will appear!

Christina + Nick

“Nick and I met our freshmen year at UCSB. When Halloween rolled around, a bunch of us were going to go out, duh. I decided on dressing up as Tinker Bell. Nick, without me asking or anything, decided to dress up as my Peter Pan. He even wore tights!!! He and I were pretty much inseparable, constantly texting and hanging out. We were on the beach dreading our Chemistry test with my roommate and a friend. It was dark but the stars were so clear. We saw a shooting star and both made a wish. I wished for an A on my chem test (typical). Before we left the beach he gave me a real kiss. He said his wish just came true. On November 26th, right after Thanksgiving break, he officially asked me to be his girlfriend. And that was that. Seven years later on November 26th, he asked me to be his wife.”
