Tips for Creating Your Own Wedding Site

by Anchal Bhatia

Wedding sites are a growing trend among modern couples. It’s a great way to spread not only the news about your big day but also about your undying love for your significant other. And thankfully, nowadays you don’t have to hire a web developer to create a chic website loaded with all the essentials. Just follow these simple tips for creating a wedding site that will both symbolize your union and get your guests excited about the event.

Wedding Website, Wedding site

Getting Started

Once you are ready to begin, a number of internet companies can help you create a customized website with ease. After you sign up, choose from a variety of templates and color schemes, and personalize it with your event details and photos. Some leading providers like ewedding.com will even let you select your own custom domain. For those who are security conscious, you can easily protect your site with a password so that only friends and family can enter.

Website Content

Once you have figured out how to build your wedding site, it’s time to think what content to put on it. At its simplest, it should have at least the basic information- your names, a picture of the two of you, your wedding date, time, and location.

Then, if you may wish, you can post as much information as you may want such as shower dates, accommodation, directions to the rehearsal dinner and more. Make sure to include a RSVP form so that your guests can confirm their arrival easily.

Wedding Registry

It is perfectly alright to include a link to your registry on your wedding site, however, just make sure it’s not the first thing your guests see. A simple “Registry and Gift Ideas” page that requires people to click on a link to get any details should be fine.

Make It Personal

Apart from the basics, it’s a nice idea to include a brief story about your relationship. Let your guests know how you both met, how your fiancée proposed you or vice-versa, who are the bride and the groom, and their families. Moreover, get some quality pictures of the two of you and post as many as possible. You can either spread the pictures across the site or add a separate gallery page.

After The Big Day

You said, “I Do”. Now what? No need to do away with the website. Use it as an online version of your wedding album. Upload your wedding pictures and videos and send the link to your loved ones. You can also add pictures from your honeymoon. It’s also a great idea to add a “Thank you” page and use it to thank everyone for their presence and blessings.

Overall, wedding site is a great and a convenient way to share the news of your upcoming event with the world. Did we say budget and eco-friendly too? But, just make sure to set it up early on the planning process, at least four to six months before the big day.
