EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT WEDDING HASHTAGS
It seemed like an eternity to get here, but here we are at your big day! Everybody is snapping pictures and posting and tweeting about your wedding. It's all good, right? But wait - how are you ever going to keep track of all those posts? Your wedding hashtag, of course! In this article, we'll explain all the details.
Let's start with the basics: your wedding hashtag will be a short and unique tagline created for your event. Your wedding planner may have already handled this for you so make sure you check with him or her first.
All hashtags start with the "#" symbol. For example, you might have a hashtag like "#larsonwedding2017". It's important to create something catchy, unique, and easy to remember.
So how do you use it? The trick is to get everyone at your ceremony and reception to include your hashtag at the end of their posts.
At Extraordinary Weddings, we like to include cute signs at the ceremony that prominently displays your wedding's hashtag. We've also had success with getting the DJ to announce it at the reception.
Ok, but how do you come up with a fabulous hashtag? The most important consideration is to come up with something short and unique. Why not try a play on your new last name? Something like "AwesomeGomezWedding2017" is trendy and easy to remember.
Do you really need a hashtag? This is a decision you will have to make. A hashtag lets you keep all of your guest pictures and posts organized and available with a single click. In the end, it's a fun way to look back on your big day.
