There are currently a lot of new trends on social media when it comes to weddings and one of them is using a unique hashtag.

A number of people think it’s a little unnecessary but we think it’s perfect because it allows you to have those memories forever on social media. You can tap on your hashtag and see all the people who graced your event and see all the fun they had. It’s the one place where you can see your collection of photos and videos from photographers and videographers. It’s the perfect place to keep all those images and videos.

If you want to create one and you don’t exactly know how to, this article is for you.

1. Ask those around you

Especially your bridesmaids and groomsmen. During the time where your bridesmaids and groomsmen come together to sort of “plan” what they’ll be doing during the wedding, the hashtag can be a topic to talk about so you have inputs from them so you get something unique.

2. The length isn’t that important

People love to be involved especially if the wedding is all over social media. They won’t mind if they have to type a long hashtag. The issue with that one is that a lot more people can make mistakes when typing it out which will end up with their images being “lost”. Short ones are usually more advised because if you make a mistake, it’s easier to see and rectify. It’s easier to say and it sticks in people’s minds. Take for instance #kency2020.

3. Don’t stick to just using parts of your names

That’s the norm currently; take a part of your name and a part of your partners name and add the year you’re getting married in and you have a hashtag. It’s simple and it’s unique but you shouldn’t stick to just that. You can use a phrase or something else like #AbsolutelyLoved21 or #Ordained2021 and #Lovestruckat2045. These are personal and talk about both your experiences. You can check these hashtags out on Instagram.

4. Check if your prospective hashtag has been used before on social media

When you think of a hashtag, check to see if it has been used already. If on Instagram, go to the search button and under the tags column, type the hashtag you hope to use. If nothing comes up, you’re good to go. If there have been a few images, that’s okay too because you can populate the hashtag with your images so it becomes yours. If too many people have used it, you would have to change it so yours will not get drowned.
