Hashtags have basically become a way of life — just ask Jimmy Fallon or Justin Timberlake. These days you can scroll through your Instagram and you'll probably catch quite a few of your friends celebrating their own weddings with cute and quirky hashtags, so why not consider incorporating hashtags into your own wedding?
Brainstorm one with your beau and show off your love for your lifelong #wcw or #mcm! It's an easy way to let your friends and family get in on documenting your big day and a great way to reminisce. After all, your Big Day is going to be one for the books, so get posting!
01. With Your Engagement Announcement
You've been thinking of your wedding hashtag since way before the ring, so you’ll want to start using it as soon as you can. Use your exciting new hashtag on social media when you’re letting everyone know about your upcoming nuptials. Whether it’s on Facebook or Instagram, this is the perfect way to share how you two lovebirds got engaged and share that shiny new ring of yours. We promise lots of hearts and double-taps everywhere.

02. On Your Save The Dates
If you're a social media savvy couple and you already have the perfect name combo, why not place your hashtag on your Save the Dates as well? Save the dates are less formal than the actual invitations, so can be a great place to feature your creative hashtag. Plus, providing your guests with the hashtag early will allow them to follow your journey to the alter! (Photo via Style Me Pretty)
03. On Your Placecards
If you're having a sit-down reception, you’ll most likely create a place card for each guest. Use this opportunity to display your witty hashtag and add it to the front the place or table card. With everything that will be occurring between friends and family around the room, you can't possible take in all of it so leave it to your guests to share some of the special moments. If you want to be a bit more subtle, you can simply add it to the back of the cards and let your guests find it for themselves. (Photo via Style Me Pretty)
04. Framed and Displayed
Make it easy for guests to share their photos and document your wedding in real time on Instagram with a framed sign at the entrance of your wedding reception. Go for a touch of glam with a gold-framed sign or choose a most rustic one that will go perfectly with your outdoorsy wedding venue. BONUS: You can use this frame as a prop in your photobooth, as well! (Photo via Wedding Chicks)
05. For Your Signature Cocktails
Add your hashtag onto drink stirrers or cocktail napkins at the bar. You can order a stamp of your hashtag and easily use it to stamp the cocktail napkins, flags for drink stirrers or anything else that suits your fancy. Everyone knows that when the booze starts flowing, pictures happen so take advantage of this! You're bound to get some entertaining pictures by the end of the night. (Photo via Ruffled)
06. As The Perfect Wedding Decor
It ain’t a wedding unless you have at least one bit of garland. Pin up a garland with your hashtag spelled out to display your wedding hashtag while it serves as a decoration at the same time. Plus, this is something that you can also use at all your pre-wedding occasions, like the bridal shower and bachelorette party. Use cutout letters, pendants, a banner, or whatever strikes you and your #truelove for the perfect decor. (Photo via When It Rains Paper)
