Explore the best ways to come up with wedding Instagram captions:

Step 1: Start with picking a photo. You may have thousands to choose from, and you may love all of them, but try to narrow it down to a few (remember, you don’t have to share just one!). Once you make your choice, consider what you love most about it. 

Step 2: Brainstorm a few different captions based on your previous answer. If you’re leaning towards something lighthearted, stick to a sentence or two and include a joke. You know your sense of humor better than anyone, so don’t overthink it! If you’re more interested in getting deep, feel free write a couple of paragraphs about how meaningful this shot — and your big day as a whole — is to you. Want to write 1,000 words about how you met and why your wedding was the most special day of your life? Go for it! There’s no perfect answer here. It’s completely up to you.

Step 3: Write the caption as if you’re talking directly to your partner or sharing the story of your wedding with a good friend. In other words, as we said above: Don’t overthink it! You can always repost or edit it later if you’re not happy with the final product. If you’re really having trouble putting the moment into words, ask your partner or your family or friends for some help, or come back to this guide for some additional inspiration.

Use these examples and steps as inspiration for your wedding Instagram captions!
