So let’s head start to how to create your wedding hashtag.
Using your names
This is the most common hashtag that couples use these days. Usually, a word is formed amalgamating couple’s name and the hashtag is used before it. Such as Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma wedding was trending with #Virushkakishaadi and Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai wedding had a hashtag #SukishkiShaadi . You can also use last names instead of first names and mix and match.
Using a tagline that describes your relationship
Hashtags are not always your names, they can be something that you truly believe in, that describes your relationship. Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja chose #EverydayPhenomenal for their wedding it’s what they believe in. So you too can use a hashtag that you truly believe in and use it across all your posts.
Using your favourite hobbies
Chances are you two have the similar interest, but even if you don’t not a big deal. Just mingle the two hobbies together and use it with a hashtag. For instance, one is a book nerd and another a football enthusiast you can use #BooksandDribbles or if you both love trekking then you can use #trekkersgettinghitched
Pun Intended Hashtags
Hashtags need not be always lovey dovey and cute, but can be witty and humorous too. These are few that you could use #weirdosgettinghooked, #crackinguptogether1912, #lovecostmearing, #freedomnotguranteed, #roadwaytosharma(use the last name), #notjokingbutmarrying #gameoverMehta (use the last name), #lightingupSindhis
Using Your Wedding Theme
If you have a theme for your wedding, then it’s wise enough to use it as your wedding hashtag too. The example is Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover their wedding was #MonkeyWedding the theme of the wedding. Well, if you are thinking that the much in love couple call each other monkey that’s quite right because that’s what their post on their social media suggest. Also, the term Monkey wedding stands for sunshowers too. So whatever your theme you choose use a hashtag ..
