It’s official, we’ve reached new levels of ridiculousness when it comes to wedding planning.

Sure, you might exclaim – ‘but what about the people who pay for doves?!’.

We can promise this is even crazier.

Because people are now paying to have someone create them a wedding… hashtag.

That’s right, some evil genius has convinced brides and grooms that they are not qualified to put together a few letters to hashtag their own wedding!

Who is this mastermind you ask?


Meet Marielle Wakim of Happily Every #Hashtagged, a magazine editor who says her special superpower is writing puns.

After creating personalised hashtags for her friends’ weddings, she realised there was a gap for a “punny hashtag generator”.

So far some of her creations have included:


(Dana Sturtz + Ryan Hill)



(Katie Gaston + Connor Dougherty)


(Paige Thomas + Chad Van Norman)

While there’s no doubting she has a talent, would you be willing to pay?

A single hashtag for your wedding starts off at $40, while for $85 Wakim will create three hashtags for you to choose from.


She also has a package for weddings, hens and buck’s night hashtags costing $115.

Perhaps if you’re about to become #MrAndMrsSmith it could be worthwhile…
