Who are we kidding: In today’s digital age, sharing your engagement on social media is almost as exciting as actually getting engaged! Enter Hitched With a Hashtag (HWAH). From creating the perfect custom hashtags and Snapchat filters to publishing on Instagram the day of, the HWAH ladies coordinate social at your wedding events so you — and your guests — won’t have to.
Wondering how exactly a social planner contributes to your wedding? They can help you:
Marry with ease. Nothing ruins a shot quite like phone screens sticking out from every which way and blocking the view of you and your soon-to-be husband or wife. With a social planner, you can feel empowered to tell your guests to leave their phones in their purses and pockets — you’ve got the ceremony, prep, reception, and all activities in between covered.
Keep the magic alive. What better way to kill time waiting for your honeymoon flight to take off than sharing some high-quality photos from yesterday’s festivities on Instagram? With a social photographer, you can expect to have a Google Drive of photos in your inbox within 24 hours, allowing you to share near-real-time snapshots of the day on your social feeds for your family, friends, and those who couldn’t make it on the day itself to see. This is also why HWAH will create a uniquely-you hashtag. Wedding hashtags are trendy for a reason: They offer you and your betrothed an everlasting trip down memory lane.
Catch the moments you might’ve otherwise missed. The hitched with a hashtag gals like to think of themselves as extra bridesmaids who are always in the right place at the right time. While the financial investment in wedding photographers can often limit how long they can spend at your reception, a social media planner can stay long into
the afterparty to make sure no special moment is left behind. If you think a social media wedding planner is out of your budget, or out of the realm of possibility, think again! Social media is a seamless and affordable way to keep up with old friends and make new connections with soon-to-be ones — why should your wedding-related social media be any different? Getting hitched with a hashtag is, after all, just a click away.

She loves the following in equal measure: her cute husband, her sassy cats, coffee, scrolling Instagram, and wedding planning. Let her help you create a day that you and your family and friends won’t soon forget!
