The wedding industry hasn’t changed much over the years. We still mail invitations and thank you notes, and spend weeks waiting by the mailbox for RSVPs. But one high-tech update to the planning process has snuck in and made a huge improvement. Wedding websites are all the rage – and for good reason. They offer a convenient and personalized way to communicate all the important wedding info to your guests, without the hassle of a thousand phone calls. Here are a few reasons to start your wedding website.
Tell Your Story
Whether you’re inviting 50 guests or 500, sharing the story of how you fell in love will help make every wedding feel more personal and intimate. Guests will be able to truly appreciate all you’ve been through to reach the big day.
Get to Know the Party
Your wedding party will be helping you every step of the way. You can help smooth the awkward introductions by sharing a few details about each member of your party so that guests will feel more acquainted and comfortable. This is especially helpful for bridal showers.
Access the Info
This is possibly the most important reason to start a wedding website. We live in a modern age where we keep our calendars, planners, and schedules online. So shouldn’t that important Save the Date be as easy to integrate as possible? And guests will love the ability to access your registries, directions, and accommodation information all in one place.
Let’s face it. You’re going to be paying a good sum of money for those wedding photos. What better way to get more bang for your buck than by sharing photos from the reception online? Most of the images will be of your guests dancing, and they’ll love to look back and remember all the fun they had.
You don’t need to be a web wizard to start your wedding website. There are plenty of easy, customizable options with built in web hosting. A few of our favorites include Wedding Paper Divas, Wedding Window, WeddingWoo and The Knot.
