I think they’re cute and funny 🙂 I have fun coming up with witty wordplay, so I think it’s just a fun thing to have in general, even if it’s not really useful for the photos (which it will be in my case).
So far I’ve only gotten good reviews from my family and his about our hashtag… #letsgetlecked.

I don’t get why people find them annoying, but I guess we just live in an age where everyone gets annoyed about everything. Once again, this is something that is a suggestion for guests to use so that all of the guest photos can be easily tracked–don’t see how this puts people off so much. The way I saw it was that instead of having to hunt down photos that someone took, if they used the hashtag I could find them on Instagram or Facebook. Some of my favorite photos were the candid shots that my family/friends took either the morning of or during the reception.

I am old and think they are dumb. But when I go to a wedding I will post the bride and groom’s hashtag so they can see extra pictures of their big day. I play along, if you will.

I’m not 100% sure how they work or why this is better than having people email or text them directly to you. I want to be able to select the photos that I share with other people and likewise, I won’t publicly post photos of someone else’s reception.

I won’t be using one, because Fiance and I are eloping and the only pics posted will be posted by us. No need for a hashtag to find them if they’re only coming from two people.
I’ve seen ones that I think are cute or mildly amusing and others that I just think ‘ugh’.

From a fairly recent bride, the hashtag is great for viewing all the pics that people have posted of your wedding in one place, like on IG. I don’t think they are dumb if they serve that kind of purpose…

I’m 35 and I think wedding hashtags can be very helpful for viewing photos that people have posted. It’s been fun to see all the photos of weddings I’ve attended!
Still not sure if we’re going to do one or not, as we can’t come up with something that doesn’t sound too try-hard.
If it works for you, do it! If not, don’t stress about it.

I am 24 and think they’re a great idea. I don’t use hashtags often, but i think they are very appropriate for an event. I use instragram semi-regularly and it is much easier to type in a hashtag and see all the pics come up, than go search for each individual guest.

I am pro-hashtags. In addition to using hashtags for weddings, I have found them useful when searching for certain vendors in my city. I actually found my photographer and makeup artist on IG via hashtags. I’m not sure why people think they’re dumb (which is totally fine if you do)…they’re basically filters that put related pics in one place. I will definitely appreciate people using ours in October.

YES. Our venue and caterer sometimes uses the wedding hashtags, and it’s been a good way to find other vendors we still need. Also, I really like seeing photos of our venue set up for other weddings!

The only reason we had one is because one of my friends thought of the absolute best one, and it just had to come to life. If she hadn’t come to me with it, I was likely either going to skip it or be super creative with lastname2016.

After going through the responses I’m thinking we may skip it. Since it is a smaller wedding, most of the people attending are on my social media and if I want to see the pictures I know where to find them! 🙂 Thanks for all teh great responses! I don’t like bombarding the bridal party with these questions and my boyfriend doesn’t care either way. Great sounding board you all are!

I don’t mind them. I don’t use IG but see the practicallity of crowdsourcing photos like this.
But I really only like it with events directly related to the wedding. I won’t lie, I eyeroll when #Amandrew2017 (for example) shows up on my social media with a gym selfie

Can’t stand them. Can’t stand hashtags in general though. Just enjoy my wedding and let the photographer we’ve hired worry about the photos.
