Regardless of your stance on social media and its role in documenting wedding celebrations, there’s no denying the creativity and comedy packed into these 15 wedding hashtags used by real couples… Perhaps they could inspire your own wedding hashtag?

1. #ForeverYounge

Reddit contributor AdrianLou told the social media site of his friends who wed to share the surname ‘Younge’, which naturally became a play on the phrase, ‘forever young’. While we’re not privy to their wedding playlist, we can only imagine it involved Bob Dylan’s classic ’80s hit, Forever Young!

6. #SheldonSquared

One debatably lucky couple already shared the same surname before tying the knot. Reddit reveals that instead of changing her name (to the same name), the running joke was that she would add a squared2 symbol to her surname. Instead, the couple created a fitting wedding hashtag to symbolise their double-dealt surname.

9. #WeStillComing

An accidental wedding hashtag came into being when a bride-to-be thought she was sending a wedding photo shoot invite to friends. It turns out she had a wrong number, but that didn’t stop the recipients from RSVP’ing – and actually showing up.

“You have the wrong number but me and my boys will be there,” the recipient responded to the bride’s accidental invitation. 

“Oh sorry! Not an invite to strangers,” the bride replied, to which the wannabe-partygoers wrote, “We still coming.”

Needless to say, the hashtag trended on Twitter, later sparking rumours of the incident’s authenticity. Either way, it turned out to be one awesome wedding hashtag, with all-inclusive photo shoot proof.

But… how do I create my own hashtag?! 

The key is to use puns, alliteration and “in-jokes” to create something really personal. Write down both of your names and any wedding related words and things that are unique to you as a couple have a brainstorm and see what you can come up with. See more wedding hashtag inspiration here.
