How Do I Create a Hashtag for My Wedding?

Struggling to know where to start with your own wedding hashtag? Follow these top tips and you’ll have created something you love in no time…

1. Start With the Basics

This might be a bit obvious, but you’ve got to start with the basics. We’d recommend you make a list of everything that might be relevant to include in your hashtag, including the following:

  • Your first names
  • Your surnames
  • Your new, marital name (are you merging or double-barreling your names?)
  • The date of your wedding
  • The name of your venue
  • The location of your venue
  • The theme of your wedding
  • The date your first met

First and last names are the best starting point, because they’re what will make your hashtag personal, but you should also think outside the box. Have you got any nicknames? Have your friends given you a couples’ name? (RIP Brangelina, long live Posh and Becks). Now is the time to embrace any little quirks.

2. Get Punny

Your wedding hashtag is the part of your wedding you can really have fun with, so if you and your other half are known as jokers, you should definitely look towards a play on words. Puns are the lifeblood of hashtag writing, after all.

Think about potential alliterations and rhymes which might work. It’s a good idea to pick up a thesaurus and jot down words which sound like either person’s first or last names (or even parts of them). Someone with the surname Hurst might use something like “#LoveAtHurstSight”, for example.

You could even try putting your names into an online pun generator or consider the help of a professional hashtag writer (yep, they actually exist).

If you’re still feeling stumped, enlist the help of a witty friend or family member. The best man, perhaps? Isn’t part of the best man's job to be funny?

3. Brainstorm Some More

Without really caring how good or witty your ideas are, jot down all the hashtags which have sprung to mind during steps one and two.

Getting your thoughts down on paper might encourage more ideas, as might asking your friends on Facebook and Instagram for suggestions. You can never have too long of a 'possibilities' list, and it’s useful to get as many people involved in the brainstorming process as possible.

4. Check Existing Hashtags

By now, you’ve probably got quite an extensive list of potential hashtags, but you may want to check if they've been used before.

Take to Instagram and search all of your potentials. If they’ve already been used, add your wedding date or something personal to differentiate yours.

5. Review Your List

Now that you’ve got a shortlist of hashtags, you should go through them all and ask yourself a few questions:

  • Is the hashtag memorable? Your guests are more likely to use unique hashtags than generic ones.
  • Is it easy to say? Make sure it rolls off the tongue!
  • Does it read clearly or do all the words merge into one? Capitalisation will help with this – more on that later.
  • Is the hashtag short enough? Remember, it needs to easily fit on wedding signs, and the longer your hashtag is, the more likely people are to make a typo.
  • Does it have any rude or unwanted connotations?
  • Is it unique enough that it won’t get used again? Maybe not ever, but at least within the next few months.
  • Is every word easy to spell?

6. Choose Your Favourite

Is one of your hashtags calling out to you more than the others? Yep, we thought so. It looks like you’ve got your final wedding hashtag.

Now you’ve made your decision, don’t overthink things. Will you remember the wedding hashtag forever? Maybe. Will you love the photos everyone tagged forever? Most definitely. If it starts to give you the chills a couple of months after your wedding, it doesn’t really matter. All you’ll actually care about are the photos attached to it.

7. Capitalise the First Letter of Each Word

It might seem like a minute detail, but you should capitalise the first letter of every word in your wedding hashtag for clarity.

It will allow your guests to read the hashtag clearly and see where each word starts and ends. It’ll also ensure your joke or pun is easier to notice!

8. Get Sharing

Hoorah! All that’s left to do is to share the hell out of it. Seriously – you’ll only be able to use it once, so you need to tell the world!

There’s no point in creating a wedding hashtag if no one is going to use it. It's a great idea to start using your wedding hashtag before the wedding as the earlier you do, the more people will notice it.

Any images you take on the run-up to the big day such as engagement pictures, date night selfies, hen party celebrations, attach your hashtag to the post. Ensure all your wedding party is aware of the hashtag by including it on your wedding invitations and on your wedding website too. 

Talk to your stationery designer about including it on your wedding invitations, encourage the members of your hen or stag parties to include it on all of their social media posts throughout the hen and stag dos and get yourself a wedding hashtag sign to display on the big day.
