Wedding Wednesday Vol 9. What to include on your Wedding Website



Wedding Wednesday Vol 9. What to include on your Wedding Website

Happy Wednesday, babes! 
Today I’m partnering with WeddingWire to share what to include on your wedding website!


 WEDDING DATE & LOCATION 
One of the first questions newly engaged couples receive is “when’s the date?” Adding your wedding date and the city and state of the wedding is helpful to your guests who want to plan ahead. Even if you are two years out as soon as you have a venue booked you should update your wedding website!
THE PROPOSAL STORY 
You may have told your closest friends and family all of the proposal details, but others may only know bits and pieces… so share your story! Those who are coming to your wedding want to know how the proposal happened! Plus, it’s always nice to brag on your fiancĂ© for how cute or thoughtful the proposal was.
 TRAVEL ACCOMMODATIONS 
This is one of the most important pieces of information to include on your wedding website. Since many of your guests will likely be coming from out of town, work on getting a hotel block early on so your guests can plan for the trip. If you have a block of rooms at a specific hotel be sure to include the link or the promo code so that your guests can get the correct rate. Don’t forget to include the deadline date to book the rooms if there is one. 
THINGS TO DO 
This is a great way to show your guests the city where you’re getting married! Especially if you are having a destination wedding! Guests will love that you took the extra step to list off things to do and why you enjoy them! This is something Nick and I still have to check off of our list. Luckily we have a bit of time :)
REGISTRIES 
Obviously, your guests presence is the best gift they could give! Nick and I still have to do this but we plan on doing something unique for this!
SOCIAL INFO 
If you have a wedding hashtag be sure to mention it so that your guests can partake in the fun. This is also a great time to mention an “unplugged ceremony” (which we are having and highly encourage!) 
Also, if you have a wedding hashtag comment below as I love hearing of others!

OPTIONAL BUT NOT REQUIRED…

PHOTOS 
Photos are not required for your wedding website, but it’s a great way to share your favorite photos, engagement photos, and memories that you have made as a couple!

WEDDING PARTY 
You don’t have to include photos or descriptions of the people in your wedding party, but since guests may be interacting with them at a bridal/couples shower or throughout the weekend it’s a good idea to share who they are and what their role is in your wedding! Also, what an amazing and personal touch for your guests to know how special your Bridal Party is to you two!

WEEKEND TIMELINE 
You can always include a wedding timeline for your guests, but this isn’t necessary. If you opt to not include this on your website, you can add it to your welcome bags for your guests! 
Tip ( Thanks mom!) If you opt to add a timeline on your website, only include items that all wedding guests can attend (i.e. not rehearsal or rehearsal dinner) that way no one gets their feelings hurt as some events leading up to the wedding are strictly for the bride and groom and immediate family

RSVP's 
If you and our guests are very tech savvy then feel free to have your guests RSVP directly on your wedding website (with instructions on your invite). Some people, myself included, prefer a paper invite. So it totally depends on you as a couple and your guests. But how amazing is it to be able to RSVP right on your smart phone!
At the end of the day, your wedding is all about you and your fiancĂ© as a couple and being able to share that with your guests is the best! I hope y’all found this helpful! Thanks for stopping by. xo

  2. Wedding website is soooooo handy - especially for RSVPs! Way easier to track numbers and vegetarians, etc. You can still do gorgeous invites for those who like snail mail, but being able to even put those ones in on your own is so helpful.
