Creating Your Wedding Hashtag: 3 Important Steps
Want to be a social butterfly? Want to use Instagram at your wedding? Want to blow up Twitter?
Creating a wedding Hastag is easy and needs no registration. Anyone on Instagram or Twitter can just choose one, so you need to think carefully and plan ahead:
- Don't Use The First Words Or Phrase You Think Of
- Pick Something You Can Easily Remember
- Make Your Guests WANT To Use It
Think of your wedding date in combination with your last name, first names or initial ...or something uniquely fun that your guests will think of only you. Think alphabetic characters (a-z, no special accents) and numbers. All else fails add a word “happilyever” or “newlyweds”.
Search and test your hashtag BEFORE the wedding to make sure another couple are not using the same.
Now spread the word on social media, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, email, text.... whatever works for you. Don't forget to put it on your wedding invitations and any pre-wedding events that your planning. Use your hashtag whenever you post prior to your wedding. The more you engage the more you will encourage your guests to use it.
Finally, use an Instagram wedding sign. Place them on tables, at the registration desk, in the wardrobe, at the bar and in the garden.... anywhere your guests will be taking pictures.
