Weddings are no longer just social events, they are social media events. This generation of brides has taken to social media and websites to promote their special day and commemorate the many milestones along the way. These passionate ladies have created websites, Facebook groups, and hashtags for everything from a bridal shower to a bachelorette party. We took some time to explore this new trend and share some tips for creating your own unique personal bachelorette party hashtag.
You can use these suggestions and tag templates for your wedding snaps, videos, posts and stories. It’s all about you and your new partnership!
Technology and Tie the Knot
In 2017, popular wedding website The Knot surveyed thousands of newlyweds to gather information on what’s new and what’s going on in the world of marriage. In their survey, they discovered some surprising statistics about new brides and social media.
- 28% of prospective brides update their social media status within hours of accepting an offer.
- 89% of brides-to-be use wedding planning apps to help them manage their special day.
- 55% of brides use hashtags to promote wedding-related events, and the other 10% wish – often after the event, when trying to collect all their digital memories in one place.
Why Do You Need The Bachelorette Hashtag?
The use of hashtags on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram performs two functions. First, it allows you to describe your wedding experience in your own words as a creative outlet. Second, and perhaps more practically, it’s an organizational tool that lets you keep track of things. Hashtags can help you organize photos in an organic and natural way, with the collaboration of all the people who took the photos. Without hashtags, you might find yourself skimming through miles of posts from friends and family trying to make sense of all the images available. To see all the photos related to a hashtag, all you have to do is click on the tag. Additionally, the presence of a hashtag encourages friends to take and upload more photos using these tags.
Tips for Creating Your Own Hashtag
While we’ve included some hashtag ideas below, you’ll want to try to create a unique hashtag for your bachelorette party. Otherwise, you risk confusing your photos with someone else’s. Here are some tips for creating unique bachelorette hashtags.
- Use your name (first or last name) in the hashtag.
- Use your location (city or state) in the hashtag.
- Try making a word game with your name.
- Try to rhyme with your name.
- Make it easy to remember.
- Search Twitter and Instagram to make sure no one else is using it.
You also want to make a catchy and usable hashtag for both you and all your friends. Remember, you want them to #type this #thing hundreds of times, so it has to be something they like and it’s easy to remember.
- It’s a few words long, not a full sentence.
- Arouse an emotion such as excitement or anticipation.
- Keep it appropriate for your social group.
- Do some research and make sure you don’t conflict with someone else’s tag.

bachelorette party etiquette
It’s important to follow bachelorette party etiquette, whether you’re throwing or attending. Whatever hashtags you use, make sure you treat your social media posts appropriately! Here are some critical rules to follow.
- Do not tag without permission! Maybe Janet’s boyfriend thinks she’s working late or doesn’t want her name floating around on Twitter. If someone doesn’t want to be tagged in a picture, don’t tag them.
- Know what fits where. There are pictures that can make their way onto the Facebook feed for grandma to see, and maybe other photos that just have to be seen by the eye. With so many platforms and so many ways to implement some kind of group view control, make sure your grandma doesn’t have to watch you do the stripper, okay?
- Remember who your friends are and aren’t. If you’re Facebook friends with your boss, consider using exclusion controls to ensure that things that are truly “real friends only” stay that way.
- Drop the phone! It’s good to capture the moment later, but there must be a moment to capture! It’s not really a party if 100% of the party is on the phone.
- Don’t spam the world with your snaps. Create a private group or account for all your posts and post a link in between so interested people can choose to view it. A lot of people are happy that you’re married and want to see a photo or two from your party…but not an endless stream of updates.
