Social media is ingrained into our society now and plays a normal role into how we live our lives and socialize with each other. Since it’s part of your everyday life whether or not you use social media you should embrace it, because your guests will be using it regardless if you have your wedding unplugged. These are the reasons why you need a wedding hashtag:

Accessibility

You will be able to view all your social media images on various platforms just by entering in your hashtag. Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook are the popular platforms that will let you search by hashtags.

Organized

Hashtag’s a great way to organize your photos on social media, just think as hashtags as file folders giving you a way to index the content you share on social media. Think about it, just by combining a search with #YourWeddingHashtag and #cake you may be able to see photos taken of your wedding cake.

Archive

Social media has been here now for 10+ years with a momentum that seems to keep growing and getting stronger. Using your wedding hashtags is a great way for your family, friends and you help capture and save those special moments from your wedding day as well as the moments that led to that momentous event—the bridal showers, rehearsal dinner, family gathering, engagement, etc.

Personalization

Not only will it look great on your save the dates and invitations, but preparing signage for your guests and inserting it within programs and menus will let your guests know what to use when they post on social media— instead of making up various non-existent hashtags that you would never use—that you have designated a special hashtag for your special occasion.

Recognition

Outside of the infamous selfie, your guests will be taking photos of your centerpieces, the venue, your dress and the tiny details that you have spent long nights trying to decide on. Having a wedding hashtag gives them the mouthpiece to share how much they appreciate the thinking that went behind your special day and give recognition to the vendors that have helped make it unforgettable.
