Today we’re talking about the role social media can play in your wedding. Creating a clever hashtag for guests to tag photos they take at your wedding is a great way to see what your guests were up to while you were front and center for the big day. Whether your are using Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or any other form of social media, having guests use a hashtag allows you to instaneously enjoy photos from your wedding while you wait for the photographer to send you the professional ones. It’s also a great way to share your wedding with guests who couldn’t make it in person.

A JLE bride from last summer made these adorable cards to share with guests the hashtag she and her spouse preferred – a play on words using the couples last name. There are many Etsy vendors out there who make great custom cards and signs so you can take advantage of the perks of social media.

How adorable is this one from grace graffiti?! We recommend keeping your hashtag short and sweet so guests can remember it and actually use it, but also have some fun with it! Get creative – you can mash-up your names, initials, use the date of your wedding, a signature catchprase, anything that makes it specific to you and your spouse.

Check out these other signs available on Etsy (and all under $10):
