#weddinghashtags - Yes or No? Do you need one?
It seems no wedding these days is complete without a unique hashtag. This allows people to add your custom hashtag to pictures & posts related to your wedding day on Instagram. This hashtag can then be searched, and it shares your guest's, friend's and family's experience with yours, putting the pictures all in one place for fun and sharing.
Some questions brides ask as they start wedding planning: So, is it important to include this for my wedding day? How do I come up with one...I'm not creative?! What if someone else has used the hashtag I want to use before?
Don't fret girl, we gathered a few tips for you!
First, let's start with the fun part, finding your perfect #hashtag! Friend, you have to check out this link: Wedding Hashtag Generator
Simply put in your name, your fiancé's name, and it will generate some ideas! Try it out! Perhaps you choose one of these, or in the very least it will act as a springboard to get your brain churning to come up with the perfect hashtag for you!
Now, make a list and narrow down your favorites. Here are some things to consider while you choose your unique hashtag!
- Like with so many things - remember - K I S S, Keep It Simple Sister! Don't pick too many, 1 or maybe 2 is really all you need! And don't overthink it, you don't have to try too hard being uber creative. Many times a simple hashtag fits just right. You want it to be easy to remember too. ;)
- To make your hashtag easy to read, be sure to CAPITALIZE the First Letter Of Every New Word. For example, "TheMooreTheMarried" is easier to read than "themoorethemarried".
- You can always have a separate hashtag for related events, like your bachelorette party!
So, what if someone else has used your hashtag already. Good news, it really doesn't matter. Here's why:
Most likely your guests will have never attended a wedding that has this same hashtag, so it will be new and unique to you in their eyes. And more importantly, your photo's will still be sequential and grouped together on social media, making them easy to find. The only exception to this is if someone is using the same hashtag on the same day or weekend as you. So, it will be very unlikely that your photo's will be confused with someone else's. This means that really the only confusion will be from Aunt Ruth who doesn't know what Instagram is, let alone what a hashtag is.
