Wedding hashtags, HUH. What are they good for? Absolutely everything. When used strategically, a wedding hashtag offers you a unique perspective of your entire engagement season from your loved ones’ point of view – visual heirlooms worth their weight in gold! You can collect hundreds of images you wouldn’t have otherwise, and not just from the wedding day itself.
Bridal showers, bachelorette weekends many other pre-wedding festivities are all opportunities to engage your guests with a creative, memorable and all-around fun wedding hashtag. So today we thought we’d partner with the masters behind such punny hashtags as #ToInfinityAndDupond and #Never Bean Better, The Wedding Hashers, to share our favorite places to display your wedding hashtag, before, during and after the day… because coming up with an epic wedding hashtag is just the half of it.
You don’t have to go overboard to make a wedding hashtag stick with your guests. Below are a few ideas to get started, but remember, it’s all about balance!
1. Save the Dates & Wedding Website
Starting as early as the Save the Dates builds hype for your wedding, sets the mood and gives your guests a chance to register the hashtag so they can start using it during wedding-related events before the day. Because your actual invitations are meant to be a bit more formal, avoid using your hashtag on these mementos in particular.
2. Welcome Gift
If you’re gifting some treats to guests staying at your room blocks, include your wedding hashtag on the welcome letter, along with the itinerary, local area recs, etc. It serves as a timely reminder, especially for destination weddings where they may want to use the hashtag with images they share during the weekend of travel as a whole.
3. Wedding Day Signage
This one’s a bit loaded, as signage means everything from welcome signage at the ceremony to directional signage at the reception. You might even include it on your bar signage should you have custom menus made. They key to displaying your wedding hashtag is balance. You don’t need to include it on every single sign that you showcase throughout the day. Determine the main spots you want your guests to have a couple reminders, and leave the rest to them!
4. Photo Booth
Whether used in the actual backdrop as laser cut or neon signage, or referenced in a frame or chalkboard next to the props table, make sure you give your hashtag a shoutout somewhere near this vignette as it’s likely where most guests will be utilizing the hashtag!
5. Cocktail Napkins
Personalized napkins placed at the bar or used during Cocktail Hour is a fun and easy way to include your wedding hashtag. Not only is it a good ice breaker for guests who don’t know one another, it’s a great opportunity for guests to snap pictures in gorgeous light playing lawn games, socializing, etc. Not to mention, this is early enough in the night to where everyone still looks their best!
6. Custom Treats
Wedding day favors, or even bridal shower goodies, can feature your wedding hashtag. Hey, they make for great photo props of their own, so three cheers for multi-purpose wedding details!
So now that you’ve got some places to put your hashtag, aren’t you ready to get creating?
How To Generate Your Custom Wedding Hashtag
Truth be told, not all wedding hashtags are made equal. That’s why we say leave it to the pros! The amount of time you’ll spend wracking your brain for the perfect pun that a) hasn’t been used before, b) won’t be too complicated for your guests to remember or spell and c) fits with the style + mood of your wedding is something you won’t regret until it’s too late.
Those are a lot of pre-requisites, my friend. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather fill my schedule with fun or relaxing activities than stress over something that I could purchase for less than the cost of a date night at Chipotle. Of course, generic wedding hashtag generators that don’t cost a dime exist, but you’ll quickly find they have yet to match the witty personalization only a human brain can deliver.
