Now that most of your wedding details are set, it’s time to inform your family and friends!
Your first means of communication are save-the-dates. These are crucial for your guests as it will inform them of the date and venue(s) for your wedding. Your guests can then make arrangements ahead of time so they are able to be in attendance on your special day.
Of course, there are more details of the wedding that the guests will need to know. Some of this information will be on the invitations that you will later send out, but many engaged couples have been creating a wedding website as another form of communication.
A couple’s wedding website is a place guests can go to locate any and all information about the wedding or wedding weekend events.
As wedding websites are being used more frequently by couples, it is important to remember the website’s purpose while creating it.
Here are a few DOs and DONTs that will help keep you on track while creating your wedding website:
DO: Add your website’s url to the save-the-dates
DON’T: Populate your website until the save-the-dates are officially sent out
DO: Include the following information – wedding date, venues, directions to venues, hotel information (hotel blocks or suggested nearby hotels), and a link to your wedding registry
DON’T: Include too much extraneous information – i.e. birthdays, fun facts, information on all bridal party members
With that in mind, here are our favorite sites that assist couples in creating their unique and informative wedding website:
