  • A wedding hashtag helps you to share each and every update related to your wedding celebrations on social media, quite easily.
  • It lets your guests share all the pictures taken by them at various functions of your wedding.
  • You get to see all the wishes of your friends and family members at one place.

Having said that, let us begin with the tips to create a perfect wedding hashtag:

#1. Keep it short

Yes, this is the golden rule that you must follow while creating your wedding hashtag. It should not have more than three to five words. The more words it will have, more would be the chances of your guests misspelling or forgetting it. That is why, it is better to keep it short.

Also, do not add any symbol, dashes, or any space in your hashtag. Your hashtag should consist of just alphabets and numbers, such as #SahiWedsPatel, #RajWedsSaloni2015, etc. In addition, keep the initials of every word in uppercase, for ease of understanding of all.

#2. Try to be different, but not weird

If you want to create a simple hashtag, then there is nothing better than using your and your partner’s name, nickname, or surname. But, it can look a little dull. So, try to pick some unique hashtag, which symbolises your union or tells about the ceremony. For example, if the fusion of your names forms a cool word (just like Saifeena for Saif and Kareena), then use it to show your creative side. But, do not use abbreviations like #MOPAK, which stands for 'Marriage Of Pulkit And Kirti'. It makes no sense and will just confuse your guests.

You can add words, like ‘weds’, ‘hitch’, ‘love’, ‘party’, ‘celebration’, ‘happilyeverafter’, etc., to make your hashtag more appealing to your guests. Some examples are- #RoyWeddingParty, #AmitWedsPriya, #SonalAyushCelebration, #TeamSingh, #ShuklasLiveHappilyEverAfter, etc.

#3. Crosscheck your hashtag

Before finalising your wedding hashtag, make sure it is unique and has not been used by anyone else. You definitely would not want your wedding details to be confused with anyone else's celebrations. So, double check your hashtag on all those social media platforms, where you want your guests to upload all the pictures and send their wishes.

And in case, you want to use the one that is already taken, make it distinct by adding your wedding date, month, venue or anything else. For example, #AnshWedsSonalDec15, #RajWedsRuhiAtUdaipur, and so on.
