If you’re like most soon-to-be married couples, you’re likely on the search for the perfect wedding hashtag for your big day.
Unless you’re super creative or are a professional writer, however, coming up with your own unique hashtag can be a lot of work. If you don’t have the time or the patience to make up your own hashtag, you may want to consider using a wedding hashtag generator.
There are a number of free online wedding hashtag generating services. But how do you know if you’re choosing the right one?
To help you find the right hashtag generator for your needs, we’ve compiled a list of the top seven free services on the Internet (plus three paid options). One of them is sure to provide you with the perfect hashtag for your wedding day.
7 Free Wedding Hashtag Generators
If you’re looking for a quick, easy and cost-effective way to find the right wedding hashtag for you, you really can’t go wrong with any of these seven free hashtag generators.
Shutterfly’s free service is one of your best bets if you’re on the hunt for a unique wedding hashtag. Not only will it generate hashtags for you, but it offers a tool to check availability for your chosen wedding hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
To use the generator, simply input both of your first and last names, your married name of choice, any nicknames either of you might have and your wedding date.
The generator will pump out a list of first name, surname, nickname and married name hashtag ideas.
The hashtag generator provided by eWedding offers two options: simple hashtags using your names only or more unique options. If you want something more creative, you will be asked to enter your nicknames, wedding date, wedding city and state and wedding venue.
Once your information is entered, you’ll receive more than 100 wedding hashtags to choose from. You will then have the option of downloading a free poster with your chosen hashtag.
WeddingWire’s hashtag generator will ask for your names, nicknames, married name, wedding date and location and the type of venue you’ve chosen.
Unless you sign up for a WeddingWire account, however, the algorithm will only provide you with four wedding hashtags. Once you’ve created a free account, you can access many more hashtag ideas.
4. Wedding Hashtag Wall
Wedding Hashtag Wall’s Instagram Wedding Hashtag Generator offers a free tool that will generate a number of hashtags for you after you enter your name, the name of your spouse-to-be and your wedding date.
Once the algorithm does its work, you’ll have a few simple hashtags to choose from and an array of more advanced options. It will even give you a few ideas in case you and your spouse have decided to join your last names.
The PastBook wedding hashtag generator is handy for couples who want to create flyers with their chosen hashtag. To use the free service, simply enter both of your first and last names.
You can click the heart to save the hashtags you like or click the arrow for new options. Once you choose one, simply click to download a flyer with your hashtag to use on your wedding website or social media.
6. The Word Finder
The Word Finder’s hashtag generator offers options for both simple and unique hashtags with its free service. If you go the simple route, you enter your first and last names and nicknames for more than 40 choices.
If you’re not happy with any of those options, you can enter your wedding date and wedding city and state for additional choices.
7. Wedding Mix
Wedding Mix’s wedding hashtag generator and checker is unique because aside from entering your names and wedding date, you can also choose if you want your hashtag options to be classic, fun or offbeat.
While this service doesn’t offer quite as many options, it does allow you to check to see if any of the hashtags you are considering have been used on Instagram or Twitter.
3 Paid Wedding Hashtag Generators
If you’re looking for a more personal touch, a paid service may be the way to go. A wedding hashtag service uses professional writers to fashion unique wedding hashtag options based on the information you provide.
Most of these services will ask for your names and wedding info before putting their writers to work on your wedding hashtags.
Here are three of the best options for professional hashtaggers:
1. Wedding Hashers
Wedding Hashers takes wedding hashtag customization to the next level with its staff of professional writers.
To ensure you get the customized hashtag of your dreams, don’t be afraid to make special requests on words you want included or excluded. You can also ask for a specific style or a mix of particular styles such as classic and romantic or funny and cute.
Aside from your names and wedding details, Wedding Hashers asks for optional info such as where you met and what you like to do. Once your hashtags are ready — usually within 24 hours — they will be sent right to your inbox.
The price is $25 for three hashtags, $35 for five or $80 for a dozen.
2. Happily Ever #Hashtagged
Happily Ever #Hashtagged comes with glowing reviews, but be prepared to dig a little deeper into your budget for this expert service. With one wedding hashtag costing $50, three coming in at $95 and five at $125, it is the most costly option on our list and also takes the longest to receive — roughly eight weeks.
Once you purchase a package, you’ll be asked to provide your name, your future spouse’s name, the date of your event, and some information about you as a couple.
While Fiverr is not a hashtag service, you can find and hire writers on its platform. Prices vary based on a writer’s experience level and ratings, but most writers will create anywhere from five to 10 or more custom hashtags for you for a set price.
One of the advantages of working directly with a writer is that you can make specific requests on themes or words you’d like included.
