Wedding hashtags are becoming more and more important, and we love how personalised it makes the wedding feel! After hastags like Deepika #DeepVeer (Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh), #Virushka (Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma), or #Nickyanka (Nick Jones and Priyanka Chopra), hashtags are in vogue and couples are not far behind in coming up with unique tags for their weddings either.
Gone are the days when one would find a pin-up board stating ‘Rahul weds Shikha’ outside the venue of a wedding. This is the time of “marriages in hastag”. It seems impossible to get married without a wedding hashtag these days. Most hashtags are created by merging letters from the bride and groom’s names, so Rahul weds Shikha, will become “ShiRa or RaShi”. Many a times, the couple asks their guests to upload pictures on social media using their wedding hashtags.
But apart from just bride and groom names, hastags have gone to some next level in terms of creating differentiators, like when Bollywood actress, Bipasha Basu, tied the knot with Karan Singh Grover, they created a wedding hashtag #MonkeyWedding to keep pictures in one place because the theme of their wedding was “monkey”. When a Sikh gentleman married a Bengali bride, the hastag was #BalleBong. #ChiragKiJyoti sounds like just the right sanskaari hashtag and we love going old-school. As Indians, we all have a meaning to our names. Such creative examples are many.
All of us have our social media feed filled with posts by newly wedded couples and their friends and family and they all have one thing in common — a hashtag that attracts attention.
