Instagram wedding hashtag #windyhillevents 1How hashtags have become a ‘must’ for social media savvy couples

But wait, there’s more. One of the first things brides need to think about when planning a wedding is the all-important wedding hashtag. In this age of Instagram, hashtags are used not only to document the engagement, but also the wedding planning and the wedding itself. No social media savvy couple can get married without one!

“Brides take these hashtags very seriously. They sometimes spend months coming up with one,” said Lauren Burns, manager of Windy Hill Wedding & Event Barn. Wedding hashtags come in all shapes and sizes. Some are funny. Some are punny. Nearly all are insanely romantic! For example, if Jennifer Smith and Michael Jones decide to get married, you could end up with hashtags like:


Burns says hashtags are showing up on wedding invitations, programs and even koozies that are given
out as party favors. But aside from their novelty, she says hashtags serve a far more important purpose.
“When you have a hashtag, you can locate not only your pictures, but all the pictures your friends took,
too. It allows you to see everything that happened that night,” Burns said.

These days, creating a wedding hashtag is easier than ever before, thanks to a number of hashtag
generators that are free and easy-to-use.

Burns encourages brides to also use the hashtag #WindyHillEvents when posting wedding photos to
make it easier for family and friends to locate pictures from that special day.
