What’s the one source your guests can go to for all the information they’ll need about your big day? (No, not you. Or your mom.)
That source is your own wedding website. Think about it. You can share the information guests will need to know (directions, hotel suggestions, attire advice, wedding itinerary). You can share the story of your relationship (how you met, when he popped the question, how you chose the date). You can manage all the details, all in one spot (RSVPs, FAQs, meal choices).
Bride-to-be lifesaver? Absolutely.
It’s fun and easy to create your wedding website. We’ve even created some templates that match our most popular wedding invitation designs! Take a look here at which website is perfect for you. When you’re setting up your site, be sure to include these hot items.
The vital information
Who? (the happy couple and the hosts the wedding)
What? (“I do!”)
When? (day, date, time)
Where? (location name and address)
Why? (well, that one’s obvious…)
The wedding itinerary
List the start and ending times of all events leading up to your wedding and afterwards. Also list a variety of local activities and entertainment guests can enjoy during the down times of your wedding weekend. Here’s a good spot to list accommodation options and to let guests know where you’ve reserved rooms. Tip: Only list activities on your wedding website that all guests are invited to.
How to get there
- Suggest airlines and flight times
- Outline train, subway or shuttle options
- Include maps and links to locations for driving directions
- Suggest car rental companies
- Provide parking information
RSVP right online
Possibly the easiest and most hassle-free way to get guests to respond to your wedding invitation. They just click, and the site will tally a guest count for you!
Let guests know how to reach you by listing your cell number. Also list the numbers of the groom, your mom, your personal attendant and the best man and maid of honor so they can field questions for you on your wedding day.
Draw guests in with fun elements like photos, the story of how and where you met, your wedding planning process and messages to guests.
Spread the word
Let guests know all about your wedding website by including its web address on your save the date cards. You can also list the web address on the reception and response cards you enclose with your wedding invitations, or on a separate card so guests can keep it handy.
