What is a wedding website and do you need one?

Weddings are an integral part of today’s digital age, so why not come with me and find out what it is, what you need, and the best uses for it.

What is that?

A wedding website is a central information point where wedding guests can access all relevant information about the wedding and related celebrations.

Savvy brides today are turning to online tools like a wedding website to help them through the wedding planning process.

Although most wedding websites are usually based on a template that you can customize, this digital tool is usually a unique website because it is personalized to reflect the wedding couple.

What to include on your website and some features you should consider having on your wedding website include:

• The ability to send your save-the-dates and invitations digitally.

• Features that allow you to track your RSVPs online to monitor your confirmed guest numbers.

• Wedding details.

• Access important information from your guests that they may want to share with you.

• A countdown to the big day.

Benefits of having a website:

• A great way to share additional information that may not be ideal on the wedding invitation or cannot be crammed onto a single sheet of paper.

• It is very useful if you are planning a destination wedding. This is where your guests can be referred for flight and accommodation advice, and destination suggestions, and can also include a Frequently Asked Questions section to cover all those necessary details and put guests at ease.

• Give your guests insight into your relationship, I mean who doesn’t love a good romance? Believe me, everyone wants to know the details of how the couple met and the joys of their engagement. How did you get engaged? Where? When?

• It helps to easily communicate last minute adjustments to original wedding plans and is the best way to get the message out to guests, as opposed to dozens of different phone calls and text messages.

• Consistency of graphics gives your guests an idea of ​​what to expect (or not!) as the wedding day approaches.

Here are some tips to add a dose of wow to your website.

• Most wedding websites offer a selection of different templates from a range of designs and colors, so pick the one that best suits your wedding vision.

• There should be a consistent style that reflects the couple and their celebration, from website to invitations, from day of essentials to post-wedding thank you. When your wedding website is aligned with your stationery suite, your guests get a consistent first impression of who you are and what they can expect at the celebration.

• Add lots of photos. There’s no better place to use more of these engagement photos – people love to see photos, maybe of you and your future spouse, funny photos from your wedding party, and maybe even a snapshot of the wedding ceremony or reception held.

In a nutshell, a wedding website is a perfect way to streamline important information for your guests in an easy and efficient way.
