Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram basically run on Hashtags. Creating a unique wedding hashtag is all the rage within the land of social media. By creating a wedding hashtag, loved ones who couldn’t make it to the event can get updates in real-time and guests who do attend can post photos, which is always fun for the couple to see! The wedded couple can use the hashtag to document the planning process to look back and remember the incredible wedding journey.
