Bachelorette Party Hashtags for Your Big Night Out
The world has changed a lot since the time when an engaged couple would post the banns (a wedding announcement) in the local church. With the rise of social media and ubiquitous technology, today’s equivalent to the posting of the banns is an excited announcement on someone’s Facebook or Instagram feed about impending nuptials.
Weddings now are not only social events, they are social media events. The new generation of brides has turned to social media and websites to promote their special day, as well as to commemorate many of the milestones along the way. These passionate ladies have created websites, Facebook groups, and hashtags for everything from the bridal shower to the bachelorette party. We’ve taken some time to explore this new trend and share some tips for creating your own uniquely personal bachelorette party hashtag.
You can use these suggestions and tag templates for your wedding-related snaps, videos, posts and stories. It’s all about you and your new partnership!
Technology and Tying the Knot
Back in 2017, popular wedding site The Knot conducted a survey of thousands of newlywed couples to gather information on what’s new and happening in the world of marriage. In their survey, they discovered some surprising statistics regarding new brides and social media.
- 28% of brides-to-be update their social media status within hours of accepting a proposal.
- 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 another 10% wish they had – often after the fact, when they are trying to collect all their digital memories in one place.
Why You Need a Bachelorette Hashtag
Using hashtags on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram performs two functions. One, it lets you identify your wedding experience in your own words as a creative outlet. Two, and perhaps more practically, it’s an organizational tool to let you keep track of things. Hashtags can help you organize photos in an organic and natural way, with the cooperation of all the people taking those photos. Without hashtags, you might find yourself sifting through miles of posts from friends and family, trying to make sense of all the available pictures. With a hashtag, all you need do is click on the tag to see all related photos. In addition, the presence of a hashtag encourages friends to take and upload more photos using those very tags.
Tips For Creating Your Own Hashtag
While we have included some hashtag ideas below, you’ll want to work on creating a unique hashtag for your bachelorette shindig. Otherwise, you risk mixing your photos with someone else’s. Here are some tips for creating unique bachelorette hashtags.
- Use your name (first or last) in the hashtag.
- Use your location (city or state) in the hashtag.
- Try making a pun with your name.
- Try rhyming with your name.
- Make it easy to remember.
- Search for it on Twitter and Instagram to make sure no one else is using it.
You also want to make a hashtag that is memorable and usable for both you and all your friends. Remember, you want them to #type #this #thing #out a hundred times, so it needs to be something that they like and that’s easy to remember.
- A few words in length, not a complete sentence.
- Evoke an emotion like excitement or anticipation.
- Keep it appropriate for your social group.
- Do some research and make sure you aren’t overlapping with someone else’s tag.

Bachelorette Party Etiquette
It’s important to respect the etiquette of a bachelorette party, whether you’re throwing it or in attendance. No matter what hashtags you sling, make sure you’re behaving appropriately with your social media postings! Here are some critical rules to follow.
- Don’t tag without permission! Maybe Janet’s boyfriend thinks she’s working late, or maybe she doesn’t want her name being thrown around on Twitter. If someone doesn’t want to be tagged in a picture, don’t tag them.
- Know what’s appropriate where. There are pictures that can go on your Facebook feed for grandma to see, and maybe some other photos that should be eyes-only. With lots of platforms and lots of ways to implement some kind of group viewership control, make sure grandma isn’t having to watch you grind on the stripper, OK?
- Remember who your friends are – and aren’t. If you are friends with your boss on Facebook, then consider using exclusion controls to make sure that things that really are “real-friends-only” stay that way.
- Put the phone down! It’s fine to capture the moment for later, but there has to BE a moment to capture! If everyone is on their phones for 100% of the party, it isn’t going to be much of a party.
- Don’t spam the world with your snaps. Make a special group or account for all your posts, and post a link now and again so that people who are interested can opt in to viewing. Lots of people are happy that you’re getting hitched and would love to see a picture or two of your party…but not an endless stream of updates.
