Let me share my tips on how you and Tyler can create your own creative wedding hashtag, an incredibly unique way to celebrate with a one-of-a-kind slogan which summarizes your beautiful relationship.
While you two are the hashtag team, you ask for help from family and friends who are your friendly, local wordsmiths to help you develop your own wedding hashtag!
Option 1: Create Your Wedding Hashtag
Write your own wedding hashtag. This is the least expensive option. If you and Tyler are creative writers, this option might be the most fun for you two!
- Do you want a hashtag that is classic, romantic, or funny or a pun?
2. You use alliteration (repetition of the consonant sound—BewitchedByBradley), puns (#MaryedToDave or use on online pun generator https://pungenerator.org/), rhymes, or synonyms.
3. Use your first names or your last name.
Start with your first names. Trending hashtags often include the first name of the wedding couple: #Jessica&Jeremy, #TaylorMarriesKaitlin, or #AlexaLuvsAlex.
Use a mashup of your names: #Shamy (Sheldon + Amy) or #Beniffer (Ben & Jennifer).
Hashtags focused on the last name such as #luvtheBrowns, #ShyneBrightly, or #CaptivatedbyKircher (in which you use an alliteration with your last name) are trending too.
4. Add a number such as your wedding day or the year of your wedding to your hashtag. This lowers the risk of you duplicating another couple’s wedding hashtag (#Katie&ColinJuly23).
5. You can add
your wedding venue (Ainsworth) or
the location (Heritage Tree) or
your wedding theme.
5. Which interests or hobbies do you two share? Are you both into Renaissance Fairs or hiking the Sierra Nevada? Are you both movie fans or in love with flying? You can use an interest or hobby to create a hashtag which has nothing to do with your first or last names.
6. Capitalize the first letter in each word. This makes your hashtag more readable by your guests. On social media, it doesn’t matter if the words are capitalized or not.
7. Avoid having the same letter repeated: avoid #LeiselLovesSam and use #SamLovesLiesel instead.
8. Read it again. Did you misspell a word? Correct it now!
9. Check to see if anyone used this hashtag previously. If the hashtag was used for something other than a wedding, you might be OK. I would recommend adding a date (9-15-2023) or location to differentiate just in case. You don’t want your photos getting mixed up with someone else’s. No bueno.
Option 2: Use a wedding hashtag generator.
There are several out there including this free one: https://www.ewedding.com/free-wedding-hashtag-generator/
Option 3: Hire the professional writers at Wedding Hashers (https://weddinghashers.com/).
After you fill out their brief questionnaire, they customize a tag which encapsulates your love story.
With Hope for Your Happiness,
