It certainly is 2013 when we’re advising you to hashtag your own wedding, but you wouldn’t believe how awesome it can be when you’re looking back on the memories. Social media is really taking off and there are always new ways of making use of it. Not sure what a hashtag is? Let our friends at urbandictionary.com sum it up for you:
If you have been on Twitter, you may have seen a “hashtag.” To put it simply, a hash tag is simply a way for people to search for tweets (or instagrams!) that have a common topic and to begin a conversation. For example, if you search on #LOST (or #Lost or #lost, because it’s not case-sensitive), you’ll get a list of tweets related to the TV show. What you won’t get are tweets that say “I lost my wallet yesterday” because “lost” isn’t preceded by the hash tag.
By asking your guests to #hashtag their instagram photos and twitter posts, you can easily search the given hashtag and view all the tweets and instagram photos shared from your wedding -all taken by your guests! How cool would it be to have a ton of candid shots to look back on while you wait to leave on your honeymoon? Here are some great ways to show your guests how to capture the fun at your chill day.
