Ideas for Your Wedding Website

When planning a wedding, there can be an overwhelming number of things on your to-do list. You need to know whether your guests are able to attend, any dietary restrictions, allergies, and if you are having meal selections, which meal they prefer. A great way to manage all of this for you and your wedding planner is to create a wedding website! Wedding websites were originally used to share your love story and announce your wedding party. Now, thanks to some integrated features, you can share pertinent information AND obtain the appropriate details needed to make sure your special day goes off without a hitch! There are plenty of things to incorporate into your site that will make your life so much easier.

Save the Date

Having your wedding date on your home page will help remind guests the date of your big day. This way, on top of the physical cards you may send, they see it front and center while accessing other details of your big day.

Protect Your Privacy

Choosing to password protect your website ensures that only your guests have access to the details. This way your privacy is protected, and you do not have any unexpected visitors or spectators for your big day.

Where To Stay and What To Do

An accommodations tab is a necessity if you have a block of hotel rooms booked for the wedding. Include the name and location of the hotel along with a contact number. This helps guests know how far away they will be staying from the ceremony and reception venues and helps them evaluate their commute. If you are providing shuttle service, make sure to provide this information as well! Additionally, if guests are coming from far away, share some places for them to visit while they’re in town.

RSVP Forms for the Win

Including an RSVP form on your website will make keeping track of attendees a breeze! This way you won’t be constantly watching your mail and marking off a sheet every time one comes through. You’ll have everything in one place and can export a report within seconds.

Dinner Time!

If you have opted to serve a plated meal at your reception, it’s best to have options for your guests to choose from. It’s also important to know if any guests have specific food allergies and dietary restrictions so you can coordinate with your reception venue to provide them with a meal they will love. Make sure this information is added to your RSVP form!

Your Wedding Registry

Your big day is a celebration of you and your partner! Guests will want to shower you with gifts to show they care! Linking your wedding gift registry to your website will confirm guests to know where to order from and where to send your gifts. If you prefer cash or gift cards only, make sure to include this information under the wedding registry tab.

Photos for Days

From sharing memories from years past to highlighting your favorite engagement photos, this is the place to do so! Upload a variety of images that helps to tell your love story! If you want to make it extra special, create a hashtag for your wedding and ask all guests to use the hashtag when sharing their photos from your big day. Include a widget on your photos page to collect and display these images.

Wedding Party Fun

A wedding website wouldn’t be complete without announcing who you have chosen to stand beside you and your hunny on your special day! Make sure to add their pictures so guests know who’s who. Include how you met them and for a fun spin, consider sharing their answer to a silly question like, “If you were a cartoon character, who would you be?”
