What’s a wedding without a hashtag #amiright? It’s hard not to appreciate a carefully crafted hashtag, especially one that is just oh-so clever, unique and puny! It’s truly impressive how creative some couples get! Why hashtags? Hashtags make weddings fun but they also serve a functional purpose (most commonly as a way to gather guest photos posted on social) and best of all, they give couples a cute and creative wedding accent to include in several elements of the wedding (signs, invitations, bar etc..)
But what happens when the wedding is over? The reality is, you invest so much time and effort into your wedding hashtag, there’s NO reason for the hasgtag fun to end once the party over!
Wedding Trends 2017!
This year, you’ll see the hashtag extend its lifespan LONG after the wedding day and live on in the newlywed home and into married life! You’ll also see married couples who said their “I Dos” before hashtags were a “thing” creating their very own hashtags and incorporating them into their personal love story!
Get excited and be prepared for newly hashtagged homes! Here are some of our favorite ways to flaunt your wedding hashtag throughout your home, your marriage, your future adventures together and surrounding the time you spend building your future together!
1. Hashtag Wall Art
Hashtag wall art looks GREAT on big empty walls and is a great alternative to finding an extra large (and often pricey) piece of art to fit! You can custom order a vinyl based die-cut sticker or go to your local craft store and look for individually printed stickers to put together yourself. Design tip: Highlight one or more words within your hashtag (for example, your married name, first names, etc.) using a different color.
2. Hashtag Dinner Parties
Make your dinner parties extra special with hashtag embroidered cloth napkins! Out with the old and in with the new! Replace the overdone monogram with your wedding hashtag and give your guests something to talk about! This works GREAT for couples who love to reminisce and in settings with friends and family who attended your wedding! Let the chatter begin…
3. Hashtag In the Kitchen
We all know the way to a man (or woman’s) heart is through their stomach – which is why the kitchen is such a natural place to infuse some extra love! Custom carved cutting boards, personalized cheese boards, knife sets, etc.. add subtle but special reminders when you’re cooking together or for each other.
4. Hashtag Neck Candy
Hashtag neck candy is super sweet and oh-so chic! Hand stamped into aluminum, individually wire-bent lettering or beautifully crafted from sterling silver or gold … if you’ve got it, flaunt it!
5. Sweet Hashtag Dreams
Hashtag dreams come true! We love these custom printed pillow cases because there’s no better way to cuddle up at night with your special someone. This concept also works great outside of the bedroom and incorporated with accent throw pillows throughout the house – in the family room, bay windows or in the foyer!
5. Hashtag Hands
Wrap your hashtag around your finger! Custom crafted as a compliment to your wedding bling or as an inscription inside your wedding band!
6. Hashtag DIY Lettering
These DIY hashtag lettering projects not only look great but are super easy and inexpensive to create. Old Scrabble games are a great way to create small but meaningful touches throughout the house. For larger projects, head over to your local craft store and choose from a variety or wood, plastic or metal letters – in different sizes and fonts. Design tip: Spray paint is a great way to quickly and easily add streak-free color or glitter!
7. Hashtag Breakfast In Bed
Simple yet classic, hashtag mugs are a must have and add an extra bit of love in the morning, to breakfast in bed or while enjoying a cup or hot chocolate together by the fire! Design tip: Pair your hashtag with a “his” and “hers” design to add an extra special touch to your set!
8. Hashtag Happy Hour
Grab your FAVORITE bottle of wine and enjoy your very own hashtag happy hour with customized wine glasses showing off your wedding hashtag! These are essential for date nights at home or when you need some time to relax together after a long day at work! Design tip: Pair your hashtag with a “his” and “hers” design to add an extra special touch to your set!
9. Hashtag Adventures
Incorporate your hashtag in ALL the adventures your new life as newlyweds with bring! Custom printed permanent luggage tags are not only functional but add a subtle accent of love as you travel to your favorite cities, to visit friends and family and remind you how much fun you have together.
10. Hashtag Holidays
We all know how special the holidays are, especially when you spend them with the people you love. Incorporate your hashtag into special holiday traditions such as decorating the Christmas tree. You’ll love unpacking this special memory together each year and you think about how many years you’ve spent together as Mr & Mrs! Design Tip: Create a love tally! Use the back of any flat ornament to write out each year that you unpack it together (ex: 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019..)
11. Hashtag Greetings
If you’re already in the routine of sending annual holiday cards, you’ll love this extra special touch! This year, add your wedding hashtag into your design and re-tell your love story.
12. Hashtag Memories
We’re so excited that Polaroids are back! They’re SO much fun at gatherings with friends and family and are a super easy way to add a unique, vintage design to your home. We love clipping individual polaroids to simple wire or lattice installations on the wall using classic wooden safety pins. Use clear printed labels to add your wedding hashtag to the bottom of photos and tag our memories in real life!
13. Hashtag Ink
For the more adventurous newlyweds! Hashtag ink turns taboo into friends saying “OOOOOO!” We love the long thin design that hashtags create, especially when placed across the forearm or subtly peeking out while barefoot at the beach!
