I'm all about this trend of creating a custom hashtag for any big event, especially a wedding day! Due to the lack of understanding behind hash tagging, many see it as a cliche trend that is more likely to spell out overdone than well done. Rather than turn up your nose to this fun (and incredibly organized) way of bringing together memories of your big day, take a moment to consider these reasons for giving in to this hip trend.
Point of View
Every person sees their memories behind a different lens. I even find that the way someone holds a camera creates an image that reflects certain details of every moment. Having an array of point-of-views allows you to see the inside jokes and outside wonders of your big celebration.
Goodbye Excess Messaging
"So & so, please make sure you text me your pics!"... Before you know it you have an inbox of 200 by the end of your honeymoon and no patience to open and save each one. Why not have an album of pictures that allows you to sift through the evening's glimpses at your leisure. You know that sounds swell. :)
It's unique to the both of you!
I think there's this interesting aspect of feeling like the event is your own knowing you have a small bit of space in this big ole' tech world. This is outside of the materialistic view and more so in the view that people cared enough about yall's big moment that they paraded it for all to see. It's a day worth celebrating, why not use hash tagging to bring forth that kind of goodness?
Now that you're onboard... tips for creating your own!
With tons of options, what hashtag will reflect the two of you best and how in the world do you figure it out? After all, this hashtag will be the one tag that you will have to use for the entirety of planning and celebrating!
- Make sure it's one you don't mind staring at and frequently typing.
- Be sure to make sure no one else has use the same hashtag.
- Does it have any innuendoes? Trust me - it's an issue for some
- Is it fun and does it truly fit the both of you?
- Consider making it something to do with your new last name. The day is about the union of the both of you not just #bridalboasting!
With that said... I introduce you with the one. the only. tag for our wedding:
