Wedding websites are a relatively new phenomenon, but one that can be incredibly helpful throughout your wedding planning- and even after the event itself!
What is a wedding website?
Wedding websites can be a huge help in communications in the lead up to your big day. There are a number of free and paid services that you can use (such as MyWedding) that offer everything from easy gift registry lists, invitation designs that match the site, and photo galleries.
Here is where you can send your guests essential information such as venue directions and dress code, where they can contact you to RSVP, and it’s also where guests can contact each other to share travel tips and organise transport with each other.
Why do you need one?
A wedding website – particularly a free one – can cut some basic costs from your wedding budget. For example, it will either eliminate or drastically cut down the need to send out paper invites with return envelopes.
It can also save you a lot of precious time in the lead-up to the wedding. Instead of responding to the same questions dozens of times, you can simply put the answers on the site and instruct guests to check here for basic information.
Such websites are also useful in the aftermath of a wedding. No doubt many guests will have photos to share, so this is a great place for them to upload pictures for you and everyone else to enjoy. Plus, it’s where you can share some sweet snaps from your honeymoon, and share official photos once you get them back from your photographer.
There’s almost no limit to the usefulness of a wedding website, and it’s a great way to create a lasting memento of your big day that you can peruse for years to come!
