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!

    • People are always trying so hard to come up with puns and focus on last names, but we too often forget the purpose of the hashtag is to uniquely ID the couple. In your case, I’d start with a celeb-type name mashup which looks SO cool and obvious: #Jamanda. Most couples don’t have names that mesh so perfectly! What do you think? Maybe add a year or date, or something that further makes you two unique. IMO, #Jamanda Is an awesome start!

  20. My last name is Weinstock and his is Speaks. The best I have right now is something like #SpeaksNoworForeverHoldYourPeace which isn't romantic, simple, punny, memorable or clever :/ Would love some help.

    My first name is Arielle and his is Logan if that helps. Thanks!

    • The best the wedding hashtag generator could come up with was DrandDrBakal… I'm not a huge fan, and it's a bit pretentious if you ask me. (He's a veterinarian and I have a doctorate in Education).

  21. Okay I’ve got I think a tricky one!
    Arielle Stankiewicz marrying Narciso Morales
    Fairytale Steampunk wedding
    February 2020
    We love game of thrones, working on projects together, fixing stuff up, our three girls, and hmm yeah I can’t think of a good hashtag! And the generator ones are so dull -.-
    Thank you!!

  22. So my name is Bailea Tidwell and my fiancé is Joshua Kelley and I can’t think of one single witty hashtag, please send help! lol
