Your Wedding: Put a #Hashtag On It

DIY Event Details Planning Tips

The hashtag -- it's the modern day way of putting a stamp on your wedding and collecting all those photos that will make their way onto social media throughout your Wedding experience.

Last weekend I photographed a destination wedding for a couple who hosted a lavish Las Vegas wedding and their hashtag was #epicloveparty -- it was a brilliant way to brand their wedding and all their guests totally bought into the hashtag process. The morning after their wedding, I sat in bed and sifted through so many fun images on Facebook and Instagram based on their hashtag. And now the couple says they're working on their #epiclovestory -- seriously though, how cute is that? :wub:


Do you love this idea and want to create your own epic hashtag? ;)


Wedding Wire has an awesome hashtag generator to help you craft the perfect hashtag.

  • Step 2. Use numbers for a simple way to set your hashtag apart.
  • Step 3. Get punny.
  • Step 4. Avoid easy misspellings.
  • Step 5. Capitalize the first letter of each word.
  • Step 6. Check the hashtag.
  • Step 7. Spread the word.
  • Step 8. Don't overthink it.

Love this!! I know its super cheesy, but I will be spending a week in Mexico, and then have a reception 5 weeks later. I love that  me, and my friends and families who cannot attend one or the other (or attend both but obviously cant see everything!) have a place to share some fun pics! I have already started to think about ours!
