Over the last few years wedding websites have become increasingly popular. More and more couples are investing in a URL and putting all of their info online. Practical and affordable; wedding websites help to bring together important information about the day. Guests can refer to them for information on accommodation, timings and presents while the couple themselves can use the site to keep track of proceedings.
Why have a wedding website?
As @brides says, “The primary purpose of the wedding website is to give guests a central hub where they may find information about your big day.” If you feel you need a place where you can quickly and easily update guests about your plans, a website might work well for you. If you’re holding your wedding abroad, inviting friends and family from all corners of the globe or have a long list of requests and special instructions, a website will help you to keep your guests informed and ensure they have all the information they need to plan the day.
Why skip a wedding website?
If a wedding website sounds like a good idea to you, you may wonder why some couples shun the digital world and stick to analogue instead. In some cases, this is simply because the couples don’t have the time or the knowhow to create the site. In other cases, it may be because the couples dislike technology or simply don’t want to post details of the most important day of their lives online for all to see. Some couples may also want to avoid the cost of creating a website, but as sites can be built and hosted for very little these days, this shouldn’t necessarily be a deciding factor.
What else can wedding websites be used for?
As well as providing friends and family with detailed information about your day, you can use your wedding website as a platform for people to post comments and photos after the day is done. Though you may need to invest in a slightly more complex site in order to do this, it’s a great way to bring together precious memories.
How to create a wedding website
If you’ve decided a wedding website is for you, creating one is very straightforward. The most affordable way to build a site is to use a template. There are lots of companies online that offer beautifully designed template sites, many of which are specially tailored towards weddings. Alternatively, if you want something a bit different, you could hire a designer to create a bespoke site just for you.
