I believe in the Internet era to “Hashtag or not to hashtag” is a struggle for all of us.
Us too tried to go for an unplugged wedding yet flew to Mexico with a hashtag for our guests to use so I guess that was sending the wrong message because well, our unplugged destination wedding was not so “unplugged” after all.
Whether you want to give an iPhone-free wedding a try or not, a hashtag is a fun way to view your wedding day through the eyes of your guests even after the festivities are over. Coming up with the perfect or unique Hashtag is not always easy but don’t you worry about a thing. After playing with several complicated hashtags generators I ended up finding an easy to use one that spits out personalized #hashtags in a matter of seconds… check it out here!
Choosing a wedding hashtag…
1. YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
Hashtags can be used by multiple people at once. Be sure you’re picking something unique that won’t get lost in the middle of an active discussion.
2. CHECK HASHTAG
You should check your preferred hashtag on Instagram to see how many posts are using the hashtag and if they’re recent.
3. SHARING AT YOUR EVENT
You need to share your hashtag in a fun and visible fashion. Chalkboard, posters, and table cards are all good options. We offer you free custom posters once you select which hashtag you want to use in the next step. (They’re unbelievably awesome)
4. SHARING ALL YOUR INSTAGRAM PICS
Getting guests to snap pics all night is awesome, but you need to collect them in one central location so that you can share them with everyone. We provide you with an awesome Instagram album on your free eWedding website.
5. MODERATE YOUR WEDDING INSTAGRAM PICS
A live Instagram feed can get “interesting”, to put it nicely. There’s no way to control who tags what images with your hashtag. Our Instagram albums on eWedding allow you to delete any images or videos you don’t want and even re-order the images. Guests can love and comment on your pics as well.
Once you have found the perfect #Hashtag for your wedding go ahead and Tag us on Instagram so we can follow along.
