You have set the date. Now, where to combine all of this luscious info? On your own wedding site, of course. From pre-event timelines, to planning with bridemaids, to a complete RSVP system and instant sharing of photos both before and after-
Here are four good reasons to create a wedding website:
1. Meet and greet
If you haven’t met a lot of the hubster’s family or he hasn’t met a lot of yours, setting up a website to introduce family members into both of your lives is a good reason to create a website. Including bios of yourselves and your engagement story, quizzes about your experiences, or even photo albums will make your guests feel more involved in your relationship and that they know you better than they did before.
2. Your guests are coming from a land far, far away
I would call this category destination weddings, but there is too much stigma associated with that phrase. Instead, if you’re having a large amount of guests coming from far away from you for your wedding, you may want to consider setting up your wedding website to make guests feel comfortable with the location. You can feature accommodations, things to do, and local airports/taxis to help guests move around your wedding festivities.
3. You want a simple invitation
A hot trend in invitations are pocket fold invitations, which is an invite with “pockets” to put in enclosures containing information about the wedding. In some invites, you can find more pockets that you will find in women’s wallet (and that says a lot). If you’re one of those brides to be who wants a simpler invitation, save the date, or other stationary, you can always direct guests to “www.insertyournamehere.com.” On your website, guests can find all the information they’d need about your wedding without a lot of paperwork.
4. You’re green
Green, or environmentally-friendly, weddings are very popular as of late. If you’re looking to go paper free, a wedding website would become the hub to your planning spokes. You can send invites out electronically and request that guests RSVP to your website, learn about accommodations, and even create a community among guests on your website.
