If there's anything we know about wedding guests, it's that they love to take photos of all the prettiest, sweetest, and funniest moments at a wedding. Hey, it's a night of celebration with their closest friends at a gorgeous private party – what's more Instagram-worthy than that?! But while brides and grooms may cherish that their guests are documenting their big day on social media, it can be difficult for them to keep track of all the posts and see everyone's pictures once the wedding is over. The solution: designate a single hashtag all guests can use when sharing their photos, making it a breeze for anyone to scroll through the photos.
But how do you let everyone know what your wedding hashtag is? Word of mouth isn't ideal because hashtags are so specific and easy to get wrong (for example, you don't want half of your guests using #thesmiths and the other half using #smiths). To make it easy for everyone to know exactly what to use, you'll want to display your hashtag in clear view at the wedding. Any surface can be a clever place to post your hashtag, from invitations to straws to sunglasses! We've rounded up a few super-creative ways couples have shared their official hashtags, below.
The one place your hashtag must be present: your invitations. This allows guests to post throughout all of your wedding festivities, from the bridal shower, to the bachelorette party, to the wedding. Photo by Gina & Ryan Photography
