How we used #Hashtags at our wedding

For our wedding we really wanted to take advantage of technology and use #hashtags.  For those of you who don’t know what a hashtag is I looked to Wikipedia to find you the answer:

hashtag is a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #.[1][2] It is a form of metadata tag.

Hashtags provide a means of grouping such messages, since one can search for the hashtag and get the set of messages that contain it.

So basically when you use a # infront of a word on certain social media sites you have now created a link between your post and other people who use the same hashtag.  The great thing about this as you can use it for marketing or for sharing information all in one place.  I created this sign and placed it by our guestbook:

The great part about using hashtags is that  we were able to the view our wedding from the eyes of our guests.  Professional photos are beautiful, but sometimes you need the real feeling of the event.

Have you used #hashtags at any event or wedding?  What do you think of them?
