Coming up with cute or funny wedding hashtags has to be one of the most fun parts of wedding planning. And unless you're having an unplugged ceremony and reception, your guests will likely post some pics on the 'gram either during or after the wedding. That's why a personalized hashtag is a quick and easy way to collect all those wonderful memories because it encourages loved ones to share snaps of behind-the-scenes pictures. Listen, your wedding photographer is amazing, but they can't be everywhere at once.

Not sure where to start? I'm sharing some of the top wedding hashtag tips and ideas right here. But if you don't want to add creating a social media tag to your wedding checklist, I totally get it. Keep reading to learn about wedding hashtag generators, as well as who our favorite professional hashtag-writing service is.

How to Create a Wedding Hashtag

Don't worry—it's actually pretty simple making a hashtag for a wedding. To help you out, I've broken it down into six easy steps, so grab a pen and paper so you can start brainstorming.

Step 1: Start with your names.

This may be a bit obvious, but start with the basics. Use your first, last names or nicknames as a jumping-off point. Remember that cutesy mash-up name your friends gave you guys in college? Well, this is the perfect time to embrace it.

Step 2: Get punny.

Have fun with wordplay by looking for alliterations, rhymes, synonyms and puns for a wedding hashtag that's clever and memorable. If you and your partner are completely stumped, enlist a funny loved one to help you brainstorm or turn to a wedding hashtag generator online.

Step 3: Use numbers.

If you don't have any standout monikers or can't come up with anything quirky (let's face it, some names don't rhyme with anything), using your wedding date or year is an easy way to make it your own. Plus, if you don't add a number, you risk duplicating another couple's wedding hashtag.

Step 4: Avoid easy misspellings.

Read over your final wedding hashtag draft for ways it could be misspelled by your wedding guests (especially when the drinks start flowing). For example, you may want to shorten longer last names or move words around if two of the same letter in different words next to each other. It could be as simple as flipping #SaraAndDave to #DaveAndSara to avoid a hazardous double "a."

Step 5: Capitalize the first letter of each word.

Capitalizing the first letter of each word can help with readability, allowing guests to clearly see where each word begins and ends. This'll make it more likely everyone will get your wedding hashtag puns. Plus, it'll work the same way on social media posts with or without capitalization.

Step 6: Check that it hasn't been used before.

Before you print those save-the-dates, check if the wedding hashtag you created is already tagged on social media and, if so, how many photos are connected to it. If there's only a handful of pictures that don't seem wedding related, go ahead and use it, but if there's a whole other wedding with the same hashtag, you may want to switch a letter to a number or pick a different rhyme to avoid getting the photos mixed up.

Use a Wedding Hashtag Generator

The simplest way to create a wedding hashtag with little effort is by using a free and witty wedding hashtag generator. You and your partner can try different options until you find the best wedding hashtags for your event. One thing to keep in mind: These hashtags won't be professionally made for you, which means they probably won't be as unique. That said, generators are a helpful template for making your own special phrase.

Find A Professional Hashtag Writer

If writer's block has got you down, consider hiring a professional wedding hashtag writer to do the job—yes, that exists. The Knot's favorite wedding hashtag writers are Wedding Hashers.

Rafaella Aguiar, a wedding hashtag expert and marketing manager at Wedding Hashers, explains how the site works. "Wedding Hashers is super easy to use. Go to our website and fill out the questionnaire, which can be a fun activity to do with your partner. You can decide how much information you want to provide, but we'll ask questions about your relationship and wedding details, where you met, your hobbies and much more. Once you've completed the questionnaire, our team of professional writers take over. Within 24-48 hours, you'll receive your personalized wedding hashtags crafted specifically for you and your partner," Aguiar says.

Getting your wedding hashtag tailored to you and your future spouse is the best way to ensure a unique phrase. There are a lot of generators out there, but Wedding Hashers uses trending wedding hashtags while being special to your event, which means you won't miss out on the latest and greatest formats. Starting at $25, you can get three great wedding hashtags, but guess what? Each hashtag doesn't have to be specifically for the big day. They also make engagement dinner, bridal shower and bach party hashtags for you and your crew.

Wedding Hashtag Ideas

Aguiar wants couples to know why wedding hashtags are a great addition to any wedding. "Getting a wedding hashtag is an exciting part of your wedding day preparations. It's a personalized way to brand your and your partner's relationship. It can reflect your shared interests, relationship, wedding day and personality. But it isn't just a fun slogan to solidify your and your partner's relationship; it also serves a practical purpose when it comes to social media and sharing the memories of your big day," Aguiar explains.

To help you make this small but mighty personal detail, I made a list of Aguiar's favorite Wedding Hashers creations, included hashtags from real weddings and put on my thinking cap and came up with some catchy slogans. Keep reading for all the wedding hashtag examples you'll ever need.

                      How to Share Your Wedding Hashtag

                      "As soon as you have your wedding hashtag, share it with everyone. Incorporate it throughout the wedding planning process, from save-the-dates, your wedding website, to pre-wedding celebrations. Letting guests know early on will encourage them to join in and use the hashtag, making the entire wedding journey more memorable and inclusive," Aguiar says.

                      If you post photos with the hashtag throughout your engagement (for example, at your cake tasting or during another fun planning task), your guests will love getting a sneak peek of your special day. Just remember, "once a wedding hashtag is public, anyone can use it and there's no way to formally claim or reserve them. However, the beauty of having a unique hashtag is that it ensures that no one else will have the same one," Aguiar explains.

                      On the wedding day, it's also a good idea to have a few reminders on site. There are lots of cool ways to display your hashtag around your venue, from including it in your wedding decor (think: welcome signage) to printing it on cocktail napkins.
