If you’re planning your wedding, it’s likely you’ve been using the internet as a tool to find pictures of wedding gowns, hairstyles, bridesmaid dresses and to research the wedding professionals you need to help you to achieve the look and vision you want for your wedding day. You can take your use of the internet as a wedding planning tool even further by creating a personalized wedding website.
It’s not as intimidating as it sounds, and you don’t need to be a web designer. Many reputable and established online wedding planners such as Weddingbells.ca, WeddingWire, The Knot, mywedding.com, and eWedding, all provide free website design tools and templates for you to use to create your own customizable, user- friendly, and attractive wedding website. You can do just about anything: keep track of your vendors, email your family & friends, enable your guests to RSVP online, upload photos, music & videos, and add your wedding registries. You can also link your social media networks to your website to increase the interaction and communication with your guests throughout your wedding journey.
The sky is the limit when it comes to wedding website content and features. In many cases, couples like to post stories of their relationship, such as how they met, along with the details of the proposal. Couples can also post save the date details, gift registry information, wedding party details, and even polls and quizzes.
