9 Unique Labor Day Instagram Captions That Will Perfectly Accompany Any End-Of-Summer Photo
Labor Day, which falls on Sept. 2 in 2019, has been considered the unofficial end to summer for decades. Though the true end to summer doesn't roll around for another month, the official ~season~, if you will, ends after this holiday. No matter what the calendar says, you'll be pressed to find a better time to celebrate the changing seasons than this upcoming weekend. Chances are you're going to see a lot of the same reflective, summery photos on Instagram this weekend — but make your stand out with one of these unique Labor Day Instagram captions.
When it comes to social media, it can often take a lot of stress out of the game if you plan your captions ahead. The hardest part of posting a photo, after all, is getting to the caption box and realizing you have no idea what you want to write. Frantically searching "unique Instagram caption ideas" or "Drake lyrics" on Google is just going to add stress to something that's supposed to be fun — so, having a few pre-planned captions can totally eliminate that.
Additionally, it'll allow you to really plan a caption that's going to set your photo apart. See some of my suggestions below:
