I made up a hashtag for our wedding, which I figured only a few guests would use, but would be fun anyway.
When I decided on the tag, I looked it up online and nobody had used it, so I thought it was safe to order our photo sharing cards—and then, the weekend before we got married, someone snagged the same tag! Luckily their guests also didn’t really use it, so there weren’t a lot of photos and Tweets already tagged.
Having a hashtag for your wedding might seem kind of silly, but we had fun with it. I posted a lot in the days before the wedding, using the tag, and BM Fatina really went nuts with it on Instagram. My sister used it a bit on Twitter, and even our photographer Rozy got into it!
Here are a few of my favourite posts using the tag (which was not actually #dragonwedding):
“Road trip, Day 2.”
“We’re ready for the wedding tomorrow with our awesome new shades!”
“It’s almost wedding time. Can you find the bride? LOL”
“We’re keeping it Klassy at the #dragonwedding.”
“Me and Shayla, the beautiful bride!”
“The Biggest Smile…or just a big mouth ”
Even if you only have a few people who will use it, I suggest making a wedding hashtag. It’s fun to have all of everyone’s posts in one place! Just make sure you choose your tag wisely.
Did you have a lot of people Tweeting or Instagramming your wedding? Did you like it?
