Look, some of us just don't want wedding hashtag ideas based on last names. Maybe your surnames are too complicated, or maybe you just want to do something more unique and a little different. Either way, there are tons of options to consider when brainstorming your wedding hashtag. To spark some inspiration, we’ve collected ideas to help you create that one-of-a-kind unique wedding hashtag.

How to find a unique wedding hashtag

When it comes to finding an original wedding hashtag, you’ve got options! Here are three ways couples choose their hashtag:

Let the pros work their magic

Look, not all of us are punny. Sometimes, it's just worth getting a pro. Services like Wedding Hashers make it easy to find the perfect, unique wedding hashtag without the use of last names. They have a whole team of witty writers who ask you a few basic questions about you and your partner… stuff like how you met, activities you like to do together, and mutual interests. 

Then, they get to work finding punny hashtags. Think of your wedding hashtag as your lifelong couples slogan. Their writing pros will gather their ideas and send them right to your inbox within one business day. This is the easiest way to get professional and fun wedding hashtag ideas.

Wedding hashtags are great and useful because they make your guests laugh. Also, catchy hashtags or catchphrases are memorable. You, friends, and family may go on using them for years to come, so it’s important to make it count!

Try a wedding hashtag generator

Can’t wait one business day to gather ideas? Try a wedding hashtag generator. While this is the fastest way to start getting ideas, it’s not ideal if you’re looking to avoid using your last names. For generators, you’re asked to put both your last names (or any nicknames) into the form, then you get a few generic options. For some couples, these suggestions are enough. However, for those looking to create a unique slogan that goes beyond their last name, working with professionals is the better option. 

Of course, what you get from a wedding hashtag generator can be used as a jumping off point for more ideas. So, if you’re keen on creating your own, a generator might be a good place to start.

Create your own

Are you and your partner creative types? Does the idea of creating your own wedding hashtag excite you? For some couples, writing their own hashtag isn’t an issue… for others, it’s frustrating. Here are some pros and cons to creating your own hashtag:

Pros

  • It’s an activity that will bring you both closer together. Together, you can go through your favorite common hobbies and interests and discuss the types of hashtags you want (such as funny, romantic, or classic). If you need some help with the process, you can take a wedding hashtag quiz. The quiz will help you answer some essential questions like “What Kind of Wedding Hashtag is Right for You?” and “What is Your Perfect Honeymoon?”
  • Creative exercises like this are wonderful for bonding with your partner. Collaborating together is something you plan to do forever, so why not start now?

Cons

  • You’re busy planning other parts of your wedding! In the months before your wedding, time is a precious commodity.
  • If time is not on your side, then consider getting professional help writing wedding hashtags.
