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.

But 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 #KEEK was actually already a very popular hashtag. All wedding photos got slurped up into 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 #FinleyTharpewedding and #FindlayTharpwedding or that one guy who kept using #TharpeFinlaywedding (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.

Of course there are hashtag generators online, and that's cool and all, but they only pick options from the same few tired algorithms. We know for a fact that our readers are WAY more clever than any robot can be… let's chat in the comments and 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. 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!

  1. Any ideas for the last name Campolettano? I know, longest name ever. They call my him Campi or Campo if that helps….#oncloudcampi #itsthelovecamp…..need help!!

  2. You are all so good at this! Our current hashtag is so boring. Any ideas for:

    Him: Rubolotta
    Us: Des & Ant

  3. Hey guys!
    Can you help me solve my hashtag riddle? (hard mode) 🙂
    My name is Irina, his name is Anton.
    My last name will be Maryasov. The date is May, 10
    The only one I could think of was MrAndMrsMaryasov – but it somehow feels off…
    Any suggestions?:)

  4. Hi Guys,
    There are some super creative hashtag here. I was looking for help with mine. His last name is Gullo and mine is Campbell. Our first names are Matt and Megan. I'm having a hard time thinking of anything cute.

  5. So, I'm going to be taking my fiance's name, and he's a "Humphress" any suggestions?? Appropriate, please! Haha I'm all for the hilarious and riske, but my family is rather conservative. Any help?

  6. The responses here have me cracking up! My fiance's last name is McCann, mine is Pawlewicz. The best I've come up with so far is #MeettheMcCanns. Any other suggestions? First name for me – Michaela, Jake for him. Thanks!

  7. My sister is getting married and I am trying to think of a good hashtag. Her name is Rachel Tutwiler (like Rottweiler but with Tut) (people call us "tut" too). Her fiance's last name is Breitbach (Pronounced "Bright- Bok"). Any ideas?!

    #TutturnsBreitbach
    #TuttoBreitbach

  8. My name is Natasha, my fiance's name is Emanuele and I'm taking on his last name Pani… can't think of anything clever!! HELP!

  9. I love how creative everyone on here is!!! Please help me find the perfect hashtag for my wedding. Thanks a bunch! His last name is McKinney and mine is Prince. Oh yea his first name is Reginald aka Reggie. Friends often call us TeReggie but I would like to go with something new.

  10. Okay so, I lovvvved HeadOverHills (his last name is HILL) however its already being used.. bummer.
    Any clever ideas from the group? You all are killin it so far 🙂

    Thanks so much!

  11. You guys are cracking me up! I know you can help with my new last name HART…. 🙂 Our first names are Lorraine and Ethan

  12. After a couple months of trying to think of a perfect hashtag I've gotten nowhere. I seriously don't even care if it is already being used. His last name is Cox (cue the funny hashtags) and mine is Roehl (sounds like rail), and I just can't think of anything that is appropriate to share with our families. Any ideas??

  13. I am in a struggle!!

    My last name is Edwardson….his is Tinkle. Completely lost on hashtag ideas. Especially since most come up like #CanYouFeelTheTinkleTonight and #TinkleForTwo. Needless to say his last name is putting us in a bind (albeit a funny one)!

    Also, our combined name is Dash. Any help would be appreciated. I am stuck!

  14. Me next! You guys are so creative. I'm Mallory, he's Ethan. Last name – Shumaker. Still not sure if I'm taking his name, but we're getting married in November in Palm Springs if that helps. 🙂

  15. HELP ME! You all have such clever ideas! My last name is Maile (pronounced My-Lee) and his is Belden (Bell-den). My first name is Tanya and his is Chris. Ideas???

  16. My first name is Brittany and last name is Hebert (pronounced A-bear) and my fiancé's name is David Lyons (lions). He calls me Britt and I call him Dave. Our wedding is October 16th in south Louisiana. Any suggestions for a clever hashtag? I have had no luck!

  17. This thread is AMAZING. You are just the group of quick-witted ladies I've been looking for! My fiance's last name is Rallens (rah-lens). My last name is Moos (like… "mows" the lawn). Our first names are Erin and Matt. Any help would be greatly appreciated! 😀

  18. Would love to get some ideas for a wedding hashtag. My fiance's last name is Moore and I feel like everything is taken. Anyone have some unique ideas.

    • Have you seen anything taken that you could tweak to make your own, Brittany? What about #MooreLove,
      #MooreMarriage,
      #LoveYouMoore, or
      #MooresTruly?

      You could maybe add a date or year on the end to make it uniquely yours. I like these a lot.

    • I, too, am marrying a Moore! But I'm keeping my last name, so that stunts my hashtag possibilities significantly.

      I suggest you add your wedding date or first initials to one of the oldie but goodie puns:
      #ForeverMoore2016
      #BritAndDudeHappilyEverMoore
      #XandBTheMooreTheMerrier
      #ThatsMooreLikeIt2017

    • I think that's a good one! Also something simple like #LebbertsInLove or #LebbertLove, but those may be too simple when you have #ceLEBBration working for you.

  19. Hello! Help please… my last name is Pressley, and I'm going to become a Seay (pronounced SEE). Would love to come up with a catchy or punny hashtag and I've had no luck. What do you all think?

  20. Wow, y'all are clever!! Anyone have any ideas for this? His last name is McCombs. I'm Kelli, he's Eric. Getting married in May 2016 if that helps any?

  21. So my last name is Willoughby and my fiancee's is Johnson. I thought since my last name sounds like Will Be I would do a play on words and have something like WillaBeJohnson, but I didn't know if you guys came up with something a little more witty. Thanks!

    4 agree
  22. Help!! My name is Bekah Daugherty and my fiance's name is Micah Campbell and I can't think of anything!! The only words I can think of that rhyme with Campbell are gamble and ramble ????

  23. My new last name will be Bailey.
    We've came up with a few, but not crazy about them.
    #NoBaileyingOutNow
    #TwoShotsOfBailey
    #BaileyTillGreyly

    Any new ideas?!

  24. This thread is hilarious and now Im in need of help. My name is Ashlee and I will be getting married 8/8/15 to Kris Slocum. Our nicknames are Novia and Novio from a trip we took a few years back in Mexico. The best we've come up with so far is #AandKAllTheWay. Any suggestions?

  25. So my name is Michelle Han, and my fiancés name is Matthew Wheless (pronounce "we-less") any suggestions?

    • Perhaps you can think of something along the lines of #nothingcanmakeWHEloveyouLESS
      as in nothing can make me love you less. It might be too long though.

    • My first thought is something like #HanNoLongerSolo, but I don't know if you're Star Wars people.

      1 agrees
  26. I need help! My last name is Gilmore and his is Tedeschi. #tedeschistietheknot is a decent one I've come up with but I know there's got to be more creative ideas out there!

  27. Help help! My name is Brittany Smail and his is Mike Carlson, I cannot think of a single creative hashtag! Any ideas?

  28. I'm keeping my name, but both of our surnames are super common and most of the hashtags are occupado.
    I'm Ayesha Khan, he's Fraser Moore, and the wedding will have major geeky and story book / fairy tale / 1001 nights vibes. ….Halp?

    • What are the ones you liked that were taken. You could just add your wedding date or first initials at the front or the end.

  29. My current last name is HOLLIDAY, new last name will be RENNER (german for runner)–generator bust…
    If my brain wasn't so wedding fried I am sure I could come up with something AMAZING…

    • so far the best idea is #RennerEverAfter but I would appreciate one of you witty ladies coming up with a good pun 🙂

        • This is what I'd come up with too, but then I was like 'well maybe she doesn't want to give the wrong idea to the guests about what she has planned!'

        • I had considered #RENNERwayBride too. Went through all of the 'Robbed' puns (since his name is Rob).

          anighttoreRENNER–since we're having an evening ceremony but that might be hard to spell and say

          also considering: forRENNERandalways–like 'foreverandalways

  30. His last name is Hill but since its such a popular last name im having a hard time coming up with something that hasnt been done. (His name is Taylor, mine is Cara)
    Ive already checked #happyHills #HILLdeathdouspart #HeadoverHills

    Any suggestions?

  31. First, you guys are totally awesome. Any ideas for last name Michael?
    Thought of MrandMrsMichael and MeetTheMichaels. Any other creative/funny ones?!

    • If you're taking his last name and the name sounds right with this…

      #AintNoHobaughBackGirl ??? Like Gwen Stephani's Hollaback Girl?

      1 agrees
  32. His name is Nick and mine is Sara. We are both high school teachers. Him business and I am an English teacher. We are getting married this summer in June. Our new last name will be Pahl. It sounds like Paul.

  33. My name is Sara and his name is Nick. We are both teachers in high school. I am an English teacher and he is a business teacher. We are getting married June 27th. Our new last name will be Pahl. It is pronounced like Paul. Please help!

      • Hi!

        I need help as well! It's a NOLA themed wedding (Princess & the Frog) my last name is Gary, his name is Branigan. Our first names are Charrell and Frederick. I'll be taking his last name.

  34. My fiancé and I are getting married next month but can't seem to find a creative hashtag! His last name is Thomson (yes, without the P).
    Can anyone help us out?? We want something other than #ThomsonPartyOf2

  35. You all are so clever and well … I am not. Haha.

    So any help would be appreciated. My name is Kelley, Last name, Matney. His name is Jose, Last name, Romero. But I am not taking his name. And we are getting married on January 2, 2016. Also, he is from Paraguay and that is where we met, when I was there for the Peace Corps, so I thought it would be cool to somehow include that. But, it is not an absolute must.

  36. My last name is Lane; his last name is Dorsey, first name Zach. We are getting married on 7-11. I have been at a loss for anything clever.
