Wedding Ceremony - 1/21/2024

If you are in the wedding planning process, then you may notice all of the different wedding hashtags trending on social media. The days of plastic-covered wedding album pages are now over. Currently, we are living in a digital world filled with emojis, symbols, and digital photos. If you are not digitally savvy, then you may not know what a hashtag is. A hashtag is the pound # symbol. It is used as part of the caption of a post and when it is used, one will be able to click on it and it will lead you to a page filled with all public photos that have used it.
The way a wedding hashtag works is when a couple comes up with a creative phrase that represents their love to one another, they may ask guests to use it when posting pictures at the wedding when they upload pictures onto social media. In this blog written by the wedding show professionals at Oklahoma Bridal, we will discuss how to create a wedding hashtag.

Creating a wedding hashtag (what is it?):

● Recruit friends and family: Ask your friends and family members what they think would be a perfect phrase that may represent you and your partner. You can make this into a game for your bachelor or bridal party, or you can make this something for family only. It is great to include family and friends in the making of the hashtag, that way they feel as if their input is valued.
● Keep it simple and silly: The wedding hashtag does not need to be elaborate. However, it needs to be original and simple. Hashtag such as #thenewwilsons or #LaurenandRyanswedding will work perfectly. Make sure when making the hashtag name that there is not another hashtag out there like it. That way random people's wedding pictures will not pop up with your own.
● Spread the word: In order to make the wedding hashtag complete, it is essential to spread the word. This can be done by including it in the wedding invite, having it placed on tables at the wedding reception party, or by announcing it to guests at the bridal shower.
