Finally: A Creative, Free Wedding Hashtag Generator That Gets Us!

Personalized hashtags have been taking the wedding world by storm, and this is one trend that we can’t get enough of! Choosing a wedding hashtag is one of the most fun wedding tasks, but it also serves an important purpose.

As a longtime wedding and lifestyle photographer, I’ve seen some of the very best hashtags for weddings over the years! Here are a few tips and tricks to help you come up with the perfect hashtag to honor your love story.

Key Takeaways

A memorable and simple wedding hashtag is crucial for organizing and sharing wedding photos on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook.

Personalization is key; incorporate first or last names, and consider alliteration, ease of spelling, or a nod to wedding themes or pop culture for a unique touch.

Beyond creativity, usage is paramount; display your hashtag throughout wedding materials and the venue to ensure guests use it, and don’t shy away from using a free wedding hashtag generator for inspiration!

Keep It Simple

Remember, the most important thing about your wedding hashtag is that people remember it, and remember it correctly. Add numbers sparingly and make sure you use as few words as possible.

Your aunt can remember to post with the hashtag #JoiningTheJohnsons, but #TheJohnsonsJoin4NowAnd4ever is not going to work.

Try incorporating a wedding or love-related word like “aisle”, “knot”, “hooked on”, “captivated”, “dreaming”, “enamored”, “I do”, “vow”, “ring”, “in love” or “nuptials”.

Use Your Names

There’s a reason so many couples put their first or last names in their hashtag. It’s an easy way to personalize your wedding day, your guests will remember it, and you can come up with a lot of great, punning wedding hashtags.

First and last names also work well with alliteration. For example, #ACoupleOfCastros or #BewitchedByBurns.

However, if you plan on hyphenating your names, it might be too confusing to include them in your hashtag.

Play Into Your Theme

While this doesn’t apply to every couple, if you are planning a themed wedding, definitely allude to your theme in your hashtag.

For those of you planning a “regular wedding,” referencing your location or time can be a great start. Are you having a garden wedding? Is your ceremony on the beach? Will your vows be at twilight? Are you celebrating a single wedding day or a wedding weekend?

Use Your Hashtag a Lot

I know this sounds like a no-brainer, but plenty of couples think of a great hashtag but only use it when they post on social media.

You should include your hashtag in your wedding invitations, on your table cards, all over your wedding website, in your guestbook, in the bio of your IG account, and in any emails you send out.

Some couples incorporate their hashtag into their wedding decorations so that guests can easily find it. You can also add a special wedding hashtag sign in a visible location (AKA not at the entrance of your event where people only see it once).

People often post photos during the reception so make sure guests can see your hashtag at the reception venue.

Reference Pop Culture

From reality TV to rom-coms to popular TV series, love is everywhere. Take advantage of the golden age of internet pop culture and add a reference in your hashtag.

Some examples are #LoveIsKlein #MyBigFatBeachWedding and #50FirstTates.

Ask for Advice

Ask your close friends and, let’s be real, your funny friends for help coming up with the perfect wedding hashtag. Whether you brainstorm over coffee, a bottle of prosecco, or in a group chat, this is a great way to utilize the best and brightest minds.

Once you’ve come up with several hashtags, make a poll on your Instagram story and ask your friends to vote on their favorite one. You might be surprised by the results!

Use a Hashtag Generator for Weddings

If you are drawing a blank or need inspiration, a wedding hashtag generator can help you get out of a rut and come up with some really good ideas.

Hashtag generators usually ask for information such as your first name, your last name, your partner’s first name, your partner’s last name, your nicknames, your married name, and your wedding date.

Have Fun With It

While many aspects of planning a wedding are stressful, picking a special hashtag doesn’t have to be one of them. Don’t be afraid to get silly, show your punning side, or lean into the romance of your big day.

This is a time to have fun and make a decision that is low impact. Even if you pick the “wrong” wedding hashtag, your wedding will still be amazing and a day you will never forget.
