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!

  18. Hi!! Maid of Honor here, trying to fulfill my duties of finding the perfect wedding hashtag for my sister and her fiancé (my soon-to-be brother in law!!)

    here’s all the info I can think that you will all need to generate some AWESOME hashtags!!:
    Her name is Amanda Buckley. His Name is Jay Mercado. They’ll be taking his last name. They’re a super cute couple that love to just relax and cuddle mostly. Very affectionate. He’s a gamer, (he works in IT) she’s a 2nd grade teacher. They met in Pathmark (a supermarket that basically no longer exists as far as I know haha) when they both worked there. In December, they will have been together for 6 years. They didn’t set a wedding date yet, but they want it in Fall 2020. Oh! and they’re from New Jersey!

    That’s about all I can think of as an explanation. If you guys need any more info, I’ll gladly provide!! Thank you guys!! Hopefully you come up with something super awesome, because I’m literally hitting a brick wall in my mind haha!!

  19. Halp! So both of our first names start with a T. My last name is Stuart, his last name is Millis. I'm taking his last name.

    We've had a few ideas related to TnT but I didn't think they would be obvious? like #TntSparksFly or #SparksFlyFromTNT but it all sounded so hokey, I think. Or maybe not, I don't know. I would almost rather use something related to Millis?

    Can anyone throw out a few ideas?
