How to Hashtag your wedding?

How to #HashTag your wedding?

Having a wedding photographer is essential for capturing the timeline of your big day. But what about all of the photos that your guests take throughout the evening? After all, they can capture some fun shots that your photographer may not have gotten. Plus, you often have to wait weeks to see the pictures that your wedding photographer took.

Instagram is an easy way to check out all of the photos that were taken throughout your wedding. But with all of the guests at your nuptials posting pictures on Instagram, how are you supposed to see them all? This is where hashtags come in.


Creating a hashtag


Hashtags - Words or phrases shared on social media sites and demarked by the pound sign - allow you to see all of the pictures that are related to that tag. For example, if you type #weddingdress into Instagram or Twitter, you will see all pictures and posts that users have put up regarding wedding dresses (so long as the user added that hastag to his or her post).

You can do the same for your big day! Create your very own hashtag, like #MJWedding13 or #JenandBenTietheKnot. It can be whatever you would like. However, if your hashtag is too generic, like #wedding, there's a chance other people could have already used that hashtag. To find out if yours is already taken, search the term on Instagram.

When creating your hashtag, make sure there are no spaces or characters. The pound sign needs to be touching the rest of the word. For example, using the hashag #m&rwedding wouldn't work because of the "&" sign.


How to find photos

When you or your guests want to search through photos from the big day, just head to Instagram and type in the appropriate hashtag. This way, all of the photos for your big day will be in one place, making them easily accessible to all.


How to spread the word

There are a few ways you can inform your guests of the hashtag you will be using. You can have it printed on your ceremony programs and offer a slight explanation. It could be something like "If you use Instagram, please take pictures throughout our big day using the hashtag (insert tag)." You could also print the hashtag on each guest's place card. A display at the entrance of your reception is another popular option. Set up a chalkboard framed in gold, like this couple did.

Thanks for sharing this. I'm hoping to have a sign at our RAH requesting people to use our hashtag, it will be a real informal party so I'm hoping for some great candids!

I plan to hashtag the wedding, I also considered having a tech free ceremony, for multiple reasons. I want people to be less focused on taking pictures, and 2 I dont want my wedding to go on social media before we even get to it. But I think the hashtag wedding is a fun idea. I also wish we can print from instagram, but as long as its hashtagged, we can have people send them to us.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
