Will You Say “Yes” to Your Own Wedding Website?
You’ve spent days devouring Pinterest for wedding inspiration, pursued wedding forums for advice with more finesse than the most seasoned F.B.I. agent and may have checked Google more than a few times for what seems to be basic, common sense in wedding etiquette. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there! There’s a growing trend in wedding convenience that can help: a personalized wedding website.
Maybe you have too much on your list of things to do before you say, “I do,” or your wedding is becoming more disorganized than your closet. Why not take advantage of a lazy bride hack? A complete godsend for all brides with large wedding parties and frequently inquiring guests is creating your very own wedding website. Some of you might think ‘I honestly have a better chance of putting together a TV stand from Ikea than making a wedding website from scratch,’ but hear me out. Creating a website is something you could spend a little money on by hiring someone else to do it for you, ask someone in your bridal party, such as the Maid of Honor, to take care of, or let your creativity run wild as a DIY-type bride that isn’t afraid of a little cyber challenge. (Just Google “Wedding Website Builder” if you’re interested in making your own.)
Your website would essentially cover a variety of issues encountered during the wedding planning, on the day of and even after the ceremony is long over. It can include anything from online RSVPs to preferred contact information, important PSAs for all your guests, travel information for out of town guests or where your venue is located, destination information (hotels, local activities, meet-up locations) for those throwing a destination wedding, all of the professional wedding photography your friends and family will start asking for, your wedding timeline, and even the wedding registry—all in one easy to access location. A website for your wedding, if done well, can prevent common little hassles many brides deal with from guests before, during and after the wedding. This means saying goodbye to minute details so that you can focus on the most important things: your dress, hair and makeup.
With your website keeping everyone in the loop on all the important aspects of your wedding, you can even treat yourself to fun tasks like taking a dance class with your future hubby or indulging in a few extra well-deserved minutes of beauty sleep.
