Best Wedding Hashtags for 2018
Wedding posts make up some of the top trending content on social media platforms like Instagram. While the thought of a wedding hashtag may call to mind punny phrases using the happy couples’ names, more universal hashtags are useful to help your posts get noticed. If you’re trying to attract more attention to a post or grow your audience, hashtags are a helpful tool when used correctly.
There are basic hashtags like #wedding or #WeddingGoals, but these have a huge amount of posts (131 million and 549 million, respectively) and such overused hashtags will not give your post much exposure.
The best practice is to use multiple hashtags or variations of the same idea to get your post trending and increase engagement on Instagram. Include variations like #InstaWedding, #WeddingInspiration, #DreamWedding, or #WeddingDay. The most hashtags you include, the more exposure your post can receive.
Depending on the content of your post, you can get even more specific with your hashtags, moving away from just #wedding phrases. #Bride is a fairly common hashtag, but depending on the picture you are showcasing you can use #BridalLook, #BrideandGroom, #InstaBride, or #Bridezilla (although hopefully that one is used jokingly).
Whether you’re posting a picture of the bride, the groom, both, the wedding party, the decor, or any other aspect, there are plenty of hashtags and variations to include to gain more traction on your post, bringing more visibility to your Instagram and growing your followers.
Instagram hashtags are a common source for brides-to-be or wedding planners to look for inspiration, so consider that demographic when creating a post. It is useful to think of what you would search if you wanted to find inspiration for dresses, bridesmaids, or any aspect of #WeddingPlanning.
