If you’re going with the DIY method, there are still some things you can do to make your life easier. The best hashtags are usually concise and memorable.
Use A Rhyme Generator
Plug your name or a portion of your name into a rhyme generator to get a sense of what words you might be able to make puns with.
If you’re the punny type, you can browse through a list of wedding phrases online to see if you can make your name or a portion of your name into a pun. Puns are cute and often have a nice ring to them, so they’re perfect for a hashtag.
Get Creative With Your Name
Don’t be afraid to split up your name or add in an extra letter here or there. As long as you capture the essence of your name, you can alter it to make it more hashtag friendly.
Think Outside The Name
If you’re struggling to come up with a good way to use your names, don’t forget to think about other parts of your relationship that could lend themselves to a hashtag.
Are you super into bowling? #BowlMatesToSoulMates. Did you meet at church? #PewsToIDos. Are you getting married in a barn? #NeverBarnBetter.
Your couple hobbies, venue, wedding details, interests are all great starting points for your hashtag.

How To Display Your Wedding Hashtag
Once you’ve landed on the perfect hashtag, you’ll want to think about how to display it at your wedding so all your guests can witness your creative prowess. Your hashtag is rendered useless if your guests don’t know what it is and can’t tag their photos with it. Luckily, there are tons of creative ways that you can add your catchphrase to your decor. Here are some of our favorites.
What better place to display your hashtag than one of the major places your guests will be taking photographs throughout the night. Many photo booths offer the option to include your hashtag on the printout photographs. But you can also put your hashtag on the photo booth props. That way, when people share the pictures they take with their friends, they’ll also be sharing your cute couple catchphrase.
Decorations are what give wedding venues flair and personality. They’re also perfect ways to display your wedding hashtag. Your welcome sign, menu, place cards, or even your cake topper, are all great locations to showcase your hashtag.
Wedding favors are another great way to show off your wedding hashtag. Instead of branding all your little gifts with your names, put your hashtag instead. You can print it on coasters, koozies, boxes of matches, candles, mugs — whatever your heart desires. Then, when your guests go home and decide they want to post some more pictures, they’ll have an easy time remembering your hashtag.
From save the dates and invitations to guest books and thank you cards, stationery plays an important role when it comes to communicating with your guests. That also means stationery is a layup for displaying your hashtag. Your guests may even start posting with that hashtag before the actual wedding day. Don’t hold back from branding that stationery with your
Directional signs are must haves for larger venues where guests may be inclined to wander. The last thing you want at your wedding venue is people getting lost! In addition to using signs to point your guests towards the bar, the bathroom, and the photo booth, you can also throw your hashtag on it too.
Your Wedding Website
Paper invitations get lost, and people forget directions. That’s where wedding websites come in. Wedding websites are great for keeping track of who has RSVP’d to your wedding, providing your guests with timely updates, creating a gift registry, and, of course, displaying your hashtag. With your hashtag front and center, your guests will have no excuses for not tagging all their photos and posts.
Your Wedding Hashtag
At the end of the day, your wedding hashtag is meant to be an emblem of your union. That means the perfect hashtag matches your personalities. It can be punny and witty, or simple and straightforward—it’s perfect as long as it’s yours.
Moreover, the process of creating your hashtag is meant to be fun. And don’t forget, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the wedding planning that you have to do, you can always enlist help from a professional hashtag service or online generator.
When it comes to displaying your hashtag, the sky’s the limit. The important part is that your guests have an easy way to access the hashtag so they can remember it. Plus, you worked hard to come up with that phrase, so you may as well flaunt it!
