How to Create the Best Hashtag for your Wedding
Hashtags are not only a great way to interact with your guests on your wedding day, they’re also a fun and engaging way to share your journey leading up to the celebration.
Whether you’re cake tasting, looking at venues or saying yes to the dress, your wedding hashtag is a creative way to share and keep track of your wedding adventure!
The earlier you decide on a hashtag, the more wedding details you can share with friends and family online.
Need help choosing the perfect hashtag for your wedding? Let the wedding professionals at The Historic Post Office help. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Start with the Basics
When brainstorming a hashtag, start with the easy details.
A wedding hashtag can be a mix of you and your spouses’ first and last names, wedding date, venue, city you are getting married in, and any other relevant details of your wedding theme.
Or if you and your partner have nicknames, inside jokes, or share the same favorite movies and songs, include those on the list, too. These small details really allow you to be creative with your branded hashtag and make the process a lot of fun.
There are a few basic rules to hashtags you’ll want to follow:
- Don’t use overcomplicated or hard to spell words.
- Capitalize each word of the hashtag for ease of understanding.
- Hashtags can only contain letters, numbers and underscores. Stay away from symbols (like &) and other special characters to avoid a break in your hashtag.
Keep it Simple
If you want guests to use your hashtag, it’s best to keep it simple.
Remember, you want your friends and loved ones to also capture the memories by being present in the moment rather than glued to their phones.
Here are a few examples of quick and easy hashtags:
Make it Fun with a Destination

Don’t be Afraid to Ask for Help
If you have trouble coming up with a hashtag, don’t fret!
Seek inspiration from the wedding party or family and friends. Hold a contest on social media, or post to wedding forums for creative help.
If you still don’t land on THE hashtag, freelancers would love to help create one, or there are free wedding hashtag generators available.
Share Your Hashtag Everywhere
Once you and your partner have decided on a hashtag, it’s now time to share.
Add your hashtag to your bridal shower invite, save the date invites, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner and of course, the wedding.
This will give your guests the opportunity to join in on the celebration all the way to the Honeymoon.
