Using a creative wedding hashtag is a great way to get your wedding guests pumped for your wedding. More so than just loading social media platforms with pictures of your engagement ring.
Your unique, personalized wedding hashtag can inspire your guests to share your photos and create some buzz about your wedding on social media.
What’s more, your wedding hashtag serves as your virtual wedding photo album.
Having this virtual photo album provides an easy way for your guests and others who couldn’t make it to your wedding to get a sneak peek into the celebrations.
Plus, wedding hashtags also have a practical use. Wedding hashtags are a quick way to compile all your wedding photos on social media without putting in too much effort.

How To Use Wedding Hashtags: 7 Different Ways
So, you’ve come up with a wedding hashtag that you love. But that isn’t enough. For your wedding hashtag to really work, you’re going to have to use it strategically in multiple places.
That brings us to the question:
Where exactly should you use your wedding hashtag?
To get the word out, you can use a wedding hashtag on your wedding stationery, decor, and of course on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, TikTok and other social media platforms.
Just one platform won’t really do the trick.
You can’t expect your guests to remember your wedding hashtag if they don’t see it enough. To help you nail the wedding hashtag game, we’ve put together a complete guide for marketing your wedding hashtag.
Here are a few creative ways you can use wedding hashtags on and before your big day:
1. Wedding Announcement
It is a good idea to start using your wedding hashtag when you first announce your engagement. That way, you have enough time to market it.
One of the best ways to do it is to add your wedding hashtag to your save-the-date cards and invitations.
Save-the-Date Cards and Posts
Your save-the-date cards and social media posts should set the tone for your wedding day experience. Do something fun with your photo or card design, but make sure to add your wedding hashtag to the details.
Here is an example of a great card that includes the wedding date as well as the customized wedding hashtag:

Separate Card With Invitations
You can also choose to include a different card with your wedding invitation, like in the example below.
This card can have further information on the wedding party, the venue, or simply request the attendees to use your wedding hashtag.
In the screenshot below, you can see how a couple turned this separate card into a fun game of “I-spy.”

2. Wedding Website
In our modern world, everyone seems to live online, so we recommend that you create a website for your wedding. It can also be a great place to share your love story, keep all of your event details, and collect RSVPs.
Furthermore, it can be a wonderful way to hype up your wedding hashtag.

3. Party Merchandise
Every step of your wedding provides opportunities for you to share and promote your wedding hashtag. For your bridal shower and bachelor party, you can create personalized merchandise to promote your wedding hashtag.
Wine or Beer Glasses
Wine or beer glasses are a great keepsake item for your invitees in the bridal shower and bachelor party.
Typically, brides and grooms get each of these glasses customized to include first and last names of their friends and family members.
In addition to this, you can also add your wedding hashtag to your glasses.

4. Wedding Decorations
So, you’ve incorporated wedding hashtags into your save-the-dates, invites, and custom wedding swag. But you can’t stop there.
On your big day, your guests may be caught up in the festivities and forget your wedding hashtag.
To make sure they remember it, incorporate it into some signage around your venue, on your menu card, or even as part of your centerpieces. You could even go all out and get a neon sign with your wedding hashtag on it.
The best part is you have the full freedom to show your creativity with hashtag sign boards at weddings. Large or small tabletop signages can easily display your message and wedding hashtag.

If you’re creating DIY centerpiece boxes with some greenery and flowers, you can also add a customized hashtag sign board.
Having it front and center as part of your wedding centerpieces will definitely keep it at the forefront of your guest’s minds.
Alternatively, you can also incorporate it creatively into your flower arrangements. Here is an example for your inspiration:

5. Wedding Favors
If you plan to give your guests wedding favors, include your hashtag on them. You can get customized chapsticks, bubbles, bottle openers, and more as wedding favors.
Everyone loves free stuff, and with your hashtag on it, they can continue to remember your wedding party even after the event has ended.

6. Photo Booths
Photo walls and booths have been popular with couples tying the knot around the globe for years. Quirky props and a funky backdrop also make it possible for your guests to let loose and have fun.
It can create Instagram-worthy moments that create buzz around your wedding on social media.
What’s more, they also offer a fantastic platform to share your wedding hashtag.
You can add it to the bottom of your pictures or incorporate it into the wall backdrop and let your guests create unforgettable memories on your wedding date.

7. Thank You Cards
Just like save-the-dates and wedding invitations, thank you cards are also a great way to amplify your wedding hashtag. They are a personal and sentimental part of the wedding.
Writing a private and intimate message to each guest expressing your love and gratitude for their attendance is important. So, don’t make your wedding hashtag the focal point.
However, let them know that they can continue sharing and enjoying your wedding experience by viewing your virtual photo album.
