So my fiance’s last name is MINTER and all the #minttobe tags fit for us perfectly! I checked at the beginning of the year and no one was using #minttobe2015 so I started using it BUT i guess I looked too soon because randoms have started using it even though their colors aren’t mint and no last name of Minter.
Then I thought of #MeetTheMinters and even got a custom site to match thinking we had a winner. A little over a month ago a couple (who doesn’t even have Instagram) got engaged and their friends started posting with MY hashtag. Ugh :-/
My quetsion is… keep both, let them share the tags with me and over populate with my photos to drown them out OR new hashtag for the wedding?
Any ideas for wedding hashtag with MINTER

No idea, but I sympathize. Mine was stolen, too 😭

#MeetTheMinters: Mint to be is a common slogan for wedding mints.

Okay, so I had to be a creep and check insta. They only have one post and you kinda laid your claim on the hashtag (very politely!) so I would just stick with your hashtag. No biggie.

What about #marrymint kind of a play on merriment?

#MeetTheMinters: maybe add the exact date to the hash tag? That’ll help narrow it down more than just the year! Mine’s #gordillopartyof2 hehe no one has that one yet!

What about #minterstobe or #mintforeachother?
i agree with PPs that “mint to be” is super common for mints given out as favors so I’d hardly call others using it as “stealing” your hashtag.

#MeetTheMinters: I checked instagram too. I’m assuming those are all your pictures – no one stole your hashtag- your pictures are everywhere.
Also – I am super paranoid. I personally would not be posting such personal information. Just to give you an idea – I searched your hashtag adn found your and your husband’s instagram account. From there, I saw a picture of your STD. It has your wedding website on it and I went to that. Now I know your full name as well as your husbands full name (again, all because you posted a hashtag on this site). I’m sure I could search you on facebook too or google you, etc.
I’m not trying to be super creepy here but…doesnt that creep you out? Just a thought…there are some crazy people out there.

#MeetTheMinters: people can claim hashtags? Or steal them? Is is that serious?

you could add your first initials, for example #jdminttobe, or add something to the end like #minttobetogether

That kind of sucks, but they haven’t put many posts so KEEP IT!

I don’t think you get to claim hashtags. It will be nice if those other people abide by your claim but there will be others, given MINTS.
#mintforeachother per TheGridMonster: is cute.

#MeetTheMinters: I did a very quick scroll of Insta and only saw like 2-3 posts other than yours. I think you’re good.
