Will you be using a wedding hashtag for your Maine wedding? If you don’t have one yet or if you’re not exactly sure why you need one, then keep reading. This post will help you through the process of understanding the value of a wedding hashtag and then how to create one.
A hashtag is a way to categorize images on whichever platform they are posted, be it Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Some of you already know this, but the way a hashtag works is you use the # symbol before the word(s) you’re using to categorize the image. For example, our hashtags are #fpmaine and #frenchspointweddings. When we search Instagram by one of these hashtags, we’ll be able to see all the images posted that were given the hashtag. It can work the same way for your wedding hashtag. If you choose a custom wedding hashtag then you’ll be able to see all the images that were posted of your wedding! And the best part is, you get to see your wedding from the perspective of your guests.
