Wedding hashtags: they're not just for hipsters. Having your own hashtag is one of the easiest ways to not only collect extra photos from your guests, but also to share your event with people who have to be MIA on your wedding day.

There are some really great wedding hashtag services out there — we especially love THE WEDDING HASHERS, who've written thousands and thousands of wedding hashtags for folks. They make it super easy:

You take 2 minutes to give them some basic info about you and your fiancé, and then their network of creative minds will write you personalized hashtags. You get their best hashtag options in your inbox within ONE business day. I mean, that's pretty great. You can check out some of the super-clever hashtags they've created over here.

Be warned: Choosing the right hashtag is mega important. I have friends who blended their initials to create a special hashtag… only to find out that the hashtag they'd chosen was actually already very popular! All their wedding photos got lost in a sea of photos and videos of strangers. Oops.

Or maybe you wanted to use your last names, but people have a hard time remembering how to spell it? Now you have photos spread out over #SmithFindleywedding and #SmithFindlaywedding or that one guy who kept using #FindlaySmithwedding (what was his deal!?).

Yes, you can put reminders of the hashtag in strategic places to help with spelling errors. But you also need to first find that perfect, unused, easy-to-remember wedding hashtag.

Again, we're a huuuuuuge fan of THE WEDDING HASHERS, but for those of you who want to take your chances in the comments section, we can see what we can do!

Here are a few of our favorites that our readers have come up with:

  • My new last name is Handley, which sounds (a little bit) like Happily – so we went classic, romantic with our hashtag and chose #HandleyEverAfter
  • I'm going to be a Howe, so ours is #HoweSweetItIs
  • Last name Pham: #wearePhamily
  • For last name Gidrey: #GidreyUp
  • New last name Grey: #isupportgreymarriage
  • Last name Wiener: #WienerTakesAll
  • My name is Annelise and my last name is my fiance's name is Alex: #bringyourAgame
  • Last name Wilk: #WilkYouMarryMe
  • Last name Pitts: #newPittsontheblock
  • Last name Whiteley: #NiceDayForAWhiteleyWedding
  • Brittany & Aaron: #Brittron
  • I'm the Holsinger and he's the Webster: #theWebbingSinger
  • Last name Blake: #takestheblake

…but that's just the tip of the iceberg!

VERY IMPORTANT: Remember that hashtags don't HAVE to be about last names!

Try playing with the name of your venue, your wedding theme, your wedding date, your first names squished together, the time of year of your wedding, shared interests, or just good puns. You can also take a quiz, or look at other couples hashtags to get more ideas. One of our favorite wedding hashtags we saw recently was #weddingthebed. HA!

So, guys, what awesome wedding hashtags did you think up? Let's generate our own hashtags!

Comments on Let’s talk about free wedding hashtag generators… #Go!

  1. #LandStine
    his last name (Landholt) combined with mine (Anstine)
    We have been using this moniker for a while now, so it’s pretty well known anyway.

    • I would like some help with the name Kowarsch (pronounced “co-wash”) please!

      • His last name is Dearing and mines is Phillips. He’s a firefighter, and I’m a postal worker. He’s a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and I’m a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.! Help me please

    • I was going to do this with my last name and his (Henson + Peacock = Hencock) but now I’m not as crazy about it.
      Any other ideas? I’m becoming a Peacock (like the bird) and we’re getting married in Washington, D.C. in May.

    • I’m really struggling to find a hashtag I like. His last name is Mcfarland and mine is newton and we’re getting married in April 2017. I want something fun and unique but everything I think of doesn’t sound great out loud!

      • I don’t know if you guys are in to anime, but my first thought was kil-la-snell after kill-la-kill.
        Other thought the Bourne matrimony. After the Bourne movies.

        I don’t know if you want to go fandom with it though.

      • How about thekilbournelegacy after the last installment of the bourne identity movie series?

    • I would like some help his last name is Brown and mine is Rodriguez..getting married in central mexico.

      So far we have #JoyEberAfter but not feeling it. Need more suggestions

    • I would love some help with a creative and fun wedding hashtag using the name Wilson! Everything I think of is so generic. I want something a little more fun and unusual.

      • I also need help! My name is Kayla and his name is Ryan. Last name will be Kailey.

    • My fiancés name is Gabriel my name is Gabriella. We both go by our nicknames Gaby and Gabe. I will be taking his last name, Diaz. I would like some kinda play on words incorporating the idea of our similar names. It seems like it would be easy but it’s not. Help! And thanks in advance! 🙂

    • Hi ya’ll! I would like some help with our wedding hashtag please!! My last name is Talbott and his is Belanger (pronounced Bel-an-jur). He likes #BelangerBride, but I think it’s kinda plain. If ya’ll have an ideas, please please help us!!
      Thanks in advance

    • Ok so my name is Briana and his is Taylor and his last name is Page, I need something clever and funny , ? can anyone think of anything?

    • Help me , my fiance surname BONADOR . Help me to have a hashtag . Our wedding will be on April this year

  2. I have to admit, I was messing around with the weddingwire hashtag generator and one popped up that was so funny that, even though its longer than I’d ideally want, I think we are going to have to use it!

    #reavenandzerosittinginatree (names changed to protect the not-so-innocent)

    lololol Our friends and family we’ve mentioned it to love it!

    • Wedding Wire’s generator gave me:


      This is hysterical even though I’m not planning to change my name.

  3. We wanted to use #crowntattoo . Everything online as a couple we use crowntattoo. BUT how do you know if it is already a popular #hastag?

    • Most of my friends use Instagram more than they use Twitter, so I just searched for the hashtag I wanted to use on Instagram to make sure it wasn’t already in use.

      To search on Instagram, click the magnifying glass on the bottom of the screen (left of the camera button). Start typing your potential hashtag in the search bar, then select “Hashtags” instead of “Users.” Once you’ve typed in the hashtag, it’ll show you how many posts are currently using that hashtag. Hope that helps!! 🙂

    • You can go to sites like twitter and instagram and search explicitly for hashtags (and I believe you can do the same on FB). (A cursory search of instagram seems to indicate that #crowntattoo is filled with pictures of literal tattoos of crowns)

    • Get thee to Twitter and Instagram and search the hashtag! If more than a smattering of tweets or pics show up, then snag it! I’d also suggest using it as much as possible, as early as possible to stake your claim.

  4. New last name is going to be McNamara soooo…#mcnamarried, har har.

    I am more excited about this than I should be ^_^

  5. We had a country music themed wedding and my new last name is Yochim (pronounced like Dwight Yoakam), so we went with #yochimhoedown. Everybody loved it (or at least I did, which is what really matters, amirite?) :]

  6. I’m not a paid rep or anything, so this is just from personal experience BUT a friend used The Wedding Hashers to get their hashtag and got so many great hashtag options that they had trouble choosing which one to use! They decided to go for #LoveAtHurstSight — SO CUTE!!

    • I have some friends who used them too! All her options were so great. They decided to go for the hashtag #ForButlerOrWorse

  7. So my last name is Ashley and his is Lee, so AshLee seems a natural pairing. So far I’ve come up with (a few thanks to the Wedding Wire generator):


  8. Ours was simple. His last name is Womble and I took his name. “The Wombles” is a popular British children’s show, so we couldn’t do that.

    Enter in something that an old high school teacher used to say: #letsgetreadytowomble

  9. We wound up not using it because we scaled everything way back but I’ve worked under the name Savage for 20+ years and my hubs has been known online as IBDoomed even longer than that so we refer to our little family as SavageDoom so we were planning to use both #SavageDoomWedding and #savanddoomswedding

  10. My new last name will be Nguyen, so I want to play on how it sounds like “win”. #nguyening is pretty popular. Wedding Wite generated #FinallyaNguyen, which I thought was pretty funny. I’m also thinking about #Natnis or #NatnisForeverdeen since my first name is Natalie and his first name is Dennis.
