Have you thought about creating your very own wedding hashtag? One sure way to double your wedding images and as well as involve your guests in the celebrations, a hashtag is one way to keep reliving the big day. Whether you think long and hard for a perfectly catchy title, combine your names, or let one someone else create a name for the event – all you need to do is steer away generic titles like #justmarried #husbandandwife to avoid being lost amongst hashtags on Instagram.
After brainstorming and noting down a collection of perfect names, be sure to search this hashtag on social media to see if it has been used before and how many images are attached to it (none = excellent, a lot = cross that tag off your list!). You don’t want to be adding to someone else’s wedding photos and confusing the situation. Choose something original, something specific to you as a couple and capitalise each letter of your hashtag and you are good to go! Get the hashtag out in the world by adding it to your invitations, programs and menu. You could even get a sign or prop custom made to encourage usage #greatidea!
