Planning Tip Tuesday: Naming Your Wedding Hashtag

Have you ever wondered what your guests are up to while you're busy getting married? They're snapping pictures left and right! A wedding hashtag is the perfect way to keep all the fun, candid photos that your guests take in one safe place: Instagram. If you do not already have an Instagram, start an account asap to ensure you don't miss out on these great shots. This allows your photographer to post same-day edited shots as well, so you can get an early sneak peak when they hashtag your wedding! Here are a couple of tips to help you create the perfect wedding hashtag for your special day. First, you want to make sure that the hashtag you choose is unique to you. You do not want pictures of weddings from all over to come up on your hashtag! Second, make the tag something easy for your guests to remember. Use words like "newleywed","happilyever", or "hitch". A few examples of previous Pure Luxe Bride hashtags are #121314Forever, #AJuryWedding, #NickandSufiaWedding, #STADwedding, #GibbHerYourLove, and #TheFredding. Once you have decided on your personal hashtag, makes sure it is visible to all your guests by displaying a framed note on your bar asking them to please tag their photos. Have fun with this and get creative. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

These elements are a great way to incorporate local flare into your wedding, and they make beautiful accent pieces on your handsome groom. Plus, they will look great in photos, perfectly complimenting your Charleston venue. Each boutonniere is uniquely different and eye-catching. What's not to love?!
