Congrats on your 21st-century wedding! Living in the modern age requires modern solutions, and your wedding preparation is part of that as well. Getting married in 2020 is not just about scouting and compiling your registry or finding the perfect venue. The planning process is a long one, and it will be so much better with a wedding website.
One Digital Hub for All the Important Details
Think of your wedding website as the hub where you can share wedding logistics, guest accommodations, engagement photos, and your registry. Making your website personal is essential, but making sure it’s fun and informative is also essential.
Here’s how you can do that.
Choosing the Design
Nowadays, you don’t have to be a designer nor a computer genius to build a decent looking website. There are plenty of platforms, such as Wix and Squarespace, that offer numerous pre-designed themes that you can easily customize. The skills needed? Drag and drop elements with your mouse and a bit of creativity. So, choose wisely, explore the Internet, and don’t settle for the first one you see. There are plenty!
Sync a Photo Sharing App
You may be busy soaking up your wedding weekend, but your friends and family will be taking pictures and videos from the start of the rehearsal dinner until they see you off at the end of the reception. Using a photo-sharing app is a great idea as all the photos can be compiled into one digital location, even in real-time.
Be Inventive With Your Love Story
Now, let’s go back to being personal. After all, this is your wedding. It’ll be the digital place where not just your friends but also you can come back to and remember. Make sure you work on your story and find a great location on your website to publish it. In other words, your wedding website should be easy to use, attractive, and personal. Here are some additional tips that you should consider:
- Create your personal hashtags and reshare social media posts on your website
- Share your registry online
- You can link your registry to charity
- Find a place for a virtual guest book
- Have your wedding party create their bios
- Don’t be afraid to post Google Forms, asking for song preferences, and others.
