Having a wedding website is a great way to simplify your wedding planning, centralize information for your guests, and show off your love story. Setting up your wedding website is easy and usually as simple as dragging and dropping your text and photos! The Knot (Free) and Wedding Wire (Free) provide hundreds of templates and planning management tools, or if you're looking for a little more customization, SquareSpace ($8/month) has a great site builder. Here are a few reasons having a wedding website is worth it:
1. Manage your guest list and save on return stamps
Among the items on your long list of wedding planning to-do's is sending out save the dates, invites, and figuring out how many people are coming to your wedding. Instead of including a RSVP card, return envelope, and stamps, direct your invitees to your wedding website where they can submit their Yes (with bells on) or their regrets.
2. Links to your registries
Once you've created your dream wedding registry, post those links for your guests to easily find!
3. Wedding Information
This is one of the best parts - being able to send information to your guests. By the time you reach the week of your wedding, there are sure to be a few people who have lost their invitations or are requesting the address for the venue, start time, parking information, etc. Having a centralized place for all the information makes it simple to quickly text, email, or Facebook them the link.
4. Show off your love story & wedding party
People love hearing more about the first time you met, the proposal story, and seeing your engagement photos. Feature them on a page of your wedding website with a brief story and images to go along. Also, have the people in your wedding party write little bios to include!
