6 STEPS TO AN AWESOME WEDDING HASHTAG
Your wedding timeline is getting shorter to the actual big date. If you have been lucky enough, the engagement party, the bridal shower and the bachelorette/bachelor parties are all behind you. It’s time to plan the wedding event!
To make the day even more special, you’ve chosen to create your own wedding hashtags. We’re bringing you 6 easy steps to make unique hashtags your guests will surely remember.
Make sure to also use first names, nicknames, even hobbies, words related to your hobbies, and where/how you met.
Find all the words that sound like and rhyme with the names and words you came up with in step 1. Here is a rhyming dictionary and a sounds like dictionary (yes those exist).
Time to break up that difficult name! Names with more than 2 syllables get to be difficult to punify.
Kryszton -> Krysz -> Crazy -> KryszyStupidLove.
DiBrosio -> DiB -> CallingDiBsOnHer.
Don’t want to break up the name?
Step 5 it is!
Puns maybe aren’t for you, but don’t worry there is style rhyming and alliteration to work with. However, puns usually get the most laughs so try and expand your word list in step 1 with ALL the words relevant to you as a couple. Did you meet playing softball? #SwingAndAMrs, #ForBatterOrWorse, #HitchItOutOfThePark. Getting married on a cruise? #ItsABoatTime, #LetsGetKnotical, #CruiseAndIDos. Is she/he a nurse? #ForBetterOrNurse. Is she/he a police officer? #ForTheArrestOfOurLives. If nothing is coming to you, then time to get back to the rhyme dictionary for rhymes can be the easiest to remember. #SoloToCorello, #CallUsSukalus, #DownWithBrown.
Nothing Rhymes with any of your names? Don’t have any hobbies?â€¦. Very well it is alliteration time! See step 6.
Alliterations are the last stop on the hashtagging journey. They have the benefit of ease of memorability, ease of spelling, and most importantly ease of generation. Here is a table of wedding/marriage related words paired by letter.

B: Begin, Become, Betting On, Bring, Bride, Better
C: Call Us, Club, Catching, Choosing, Chasing
