If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding then you may have heard of a wedding website. Simply put, a wedding website is a resource created to display your key wedding details.
We understand that planning a wedding is not easy and you may find yourself with a long list of things that require your attention. It may seem as if creating a wedding website is another task on the list but taking the time upfront will actually help you and your guests in the long run.
Wedding websites are relatively easy to create these days and provide you with a platform to inform guests of all important wedding details and spare you the hassle of being asked the same questions countless times by everyone. It’s so simple and convenient to have a place that has all key details ready to go. Still not ready to jump on the bandwagon? Read on for our list of reasons why you should create a wedding website!
Wedding Websites are a Great Way to Get Personal
A wedding website gives you a chance to share more info about you both as a couple. How did you first meet? How did you know you found “ the one”? Share details and some special moments for your guests to learn more about you as a couple. You can also include your gorgeous engagement photos. Use your website to tell your love story.
Wedding Details All Displayed in One Place
A wedding website can act as your main source of communication to your guests.
Maybe you want more of a formal black tie affair or perhaps you envision a more laid back casual dress code. Your website is a great place to give your guests a heads up on the dress code so that they can plan accordingly. It’s also a great place to let guests know the schedule of events. If you’re having multiple day events you can list the times, dates and locations here for guests to have to reference. It can help keep everyone on the same page and make the planning process so much easier.

Help Out of Town Guests
Your wedding website can also act as a guide for any out of town guests who are new to the area your wedding takes place in. We’ve seen couples include fun things for guests to do in the area along with travel accommodations such as hotels and restaurants. You and your partner can also recommend to your guests your favorite things you like to do in the area. Laying this info out on the website will spare you the countless phone calls from your guests asking you for these details.

Bridal Party Members
A wedding website also gives you a chance to include info about all your bridal party members. We’ve seen couples pick a favorite photo of the bridal party member and post up a brief note on their role and some short sweet details on your relationship with them. This is such a fun way to introduce your bridal party to your guests so they know who they are beforehand and it also gives your party a little recognition.
Creating a wedding website is a great idea to incorporate into your wedding planning. Taking the time early on in your planning process will save you so much time in the long run. You and your guests will be sure to find it to be a very beneficial resource.
