There are countless trends to explore when planning for your wedding day. From creative menus to elaborate photo booths, the modern-day wedding is full of fun additions to tradition. One trend in particular that ARRAS loves being a part of and promoting is creating a wedding hashtag on Instagram. With guests eager to share behind-the-scene shots from your big day, we recommend creating a custom wedding hashtag to use when posting on social media leading up to, during, and after your celebration!
Whether you opt for a classic wedding hashtag using your names and date or create a more personalized pun, —the most creative and catchy hashtags will get your guests posting! By picking a trendy wedding hashtag and getting your guests to include it in any photos they post, you'll know exactly how to track down all the great candids your photographer may have missed.
Tips From our Team:
Ensure you check your hashtag on Instagram to see how many posts are using the hashtag and if they’re recent
If you are set on a hashtag recently taken, try adding numbers, dashes or other symbols to it to make it work.
Capitalize each separate word so it can be read clearly.
Avoid words that are easily misspelled, and if the last name you want to use is overly long then try a nickname
Get punny and creative—everyone loves a good play on words. Look for alliterations, rhymes, synonyms and puns for a tag that's both clever and memorable.
Make guests aware of your hashtag before the wedding day—the more they see it, the more likely they are to remember to use it when the time comes.
To effectively promote your hashtag prior to the big day, tell your wedding party, and put it on your invitations. Day of, there are many stylish ways to display your wedding hashtag around the venue, such as printing it on place cards, at the bottom of your ceremony programs, or on drink menus at the bar.
