The wonderful world of Instagram is filled with crazy acronyms that you may have resisted before your fiancé(e) put an engagement ring on it. But now’s the time to embrace the wedding hashtag and get your wedding trending. No, you don’t have to go wild and stack your caption with forty wedding-related words, but one or two couldn’t hurt. From #justsaidyes to #foodporn, this is where and when you should put Insta’s best tool (other than filters, obvi) to use.

Here are a few wedding hashtags you should use while planning your wedding.
