“Should we create a wedding website for our guests?”

We often hear that question from our clients asking if it is necessary to create a site for the big day. Wedding websites are a definite ‘to do’ for couples as it provides a way for your family and friends to keep up to date with all of your wedding plans. Though it is not absolutely necessary, it certainly is the easiest way to keep everyone informed of all the latest happenings – and it can be super fun to create! Here are some tips on creating your perfect ‘I do-dotcom.’

Share Your Story ~ You two are madly in love and crazy about each other…but we want to know how it happened! Tell the whole world your love story. Be sure to include how you met, when you fell in love and of course all of the proposal details!

Talk About Your Peeps ~ These are the people that have been standing next to you your whole life and will be standing next to you as you recite your vows. Create a section where you can talk about each member of your bridal party and how each of them have affected your life. This is a nice way to let them know how special they are to you and also an opportunity to introduce them to your guests.

Map it Out ~ List the accommodations available for your Out of Town guests as well as some fun things to do. Look into special discounts that may be available at local malls, museums or landmarks. You can also share places that are special to you and your fiance. Have your guests dine at your favorite restaurant or where you got engaged!
