5 Reasons You Should Have A Wedding Website

Wedding Websites

Reason #1: A wedding website is a great way to connect with friends and family.

With your wedding website, friends and family from across the country and around the world can feel like they are part of your wedding plans. They can read about you and see pictures of your youth. They can get to know your fiancé and your families before coming to the wedding. And, if you have large extended families, you will both need a head start just to remember everyone’s name.

Reason #2: A wedding website makes planning your wedding easier.

Your website can help you plan your wedding, keep track of details, and get the news out about upcoming events. Include an events calendar listing all your wedding activities. Invite the wedding party to a planning session in your private chatroom or bulletin board to save on long distance bills. Encourage guests to RSVP online, submit music requests for your reception through your site, and more. If you have changes to your plans, or need to alert guests to a change of location, your wedding website provides an easily updateable format to keep everyone informed. If you’re short on time, you could even enlist a friend to be your "Wedding Communications Director" to moderate your wedding forum or return e-mails from guests.

Reason #3: A wedding website gives the groom an opportunity to be involved in your wedding plans.

Even if your groom has not been excited about the details of your wedding, such as picking bridesmaid dresses, flowers, and reception food, you can help him feel part of the planning by working together on your wedding website. Let him help by writing about his life, his friends in the wedding party, his family, etc., scanning photos and maps, or writing about your future plans together. Have a groom’s forum where he can keep up with his friends and family, too. You can have a lot of fun building your site together.

Reason #4: Your wedding website provides guests with information that does not fit in the invitation.

You can make it easy on guests by including online travel information with links to your wedding hotel, tourist information, driving directions, maps, and more. Your gift registry information and links to online shopping will save guests time by allowing them to order and send your gifts from their home computer. You can also include a guest book and contact information to allow guests to e-mail you with questions or comments.

Reason #5: A wedding website is a great way to preserve and share your wedding memories and a wonderful start to your personal family history.

Think of your website as an online wedding scrapbook that you can easily share with friends and family. Here, you can preserve your wedding photos, memories, and more, in an interactive and updateable format. Remember to order a CD or print out the pages of your site when your hosting period ends. If you chose a custom-designed website, you can ask your designer to change your wedding site into a family website after your wedding, allowing you to continue to keep connected to your family and friends as your own family grows.
