Hashtags are everywhere these days – on twitter accounts, on news feeds, weddings, events, car commercials, TV soap opera’s and music shows. When designed well, hashtags can increase your online following and help pin down what makes your event unique. However, I’ve seen brides and even event managers choose the wrong hashtag for a wedding. It doesn’t take a lot of time to pick the perfect hashtag for your wedding but keep in mind that there’s no registration procedure for creating a wedding hashtag.
When choosing an hashtag for your wedding, you can start with your first, last or nicknames as your starting point. You can also use numbers for a simple way to set your hashtags apart. Avoid easy misspellings, capitalise the first letter of each word, keep it simple and once you have your hashtag spread the word.
Let people know about it:
You can share the hashtag through your pre-wedding photos on Instagram, on your wedding website, save the date card, at the back of your wedding invitation card or you can put reminders of the hashtag in strategic places at the venue to remind your guest and to help with spelling errors.
There are hashtag generator apps available online. You may want to try using those apps to generate unique hashtag for your wedding.
Remember that hashtags don’t have to just be about last names. They can be about your theme, wedding date, first names squished together or anything else.
