January 26, 2018

For modern couples, a wedding website is a must-have. It’s the place where your family, friends, and other guests go to get the details and the latest updates about your wedding. If you want to get everyone excited for the big day, you can set the mood and pump up the anticipation with a cleverly designed wedding website. Check out these tips for creating your own!

Use a Creative Agency 

One creative agency that provides gorgeous wedding websites is Bliss AND Bone.  Their fresh and modern style provides a whole range of templates that you can customize. I fell in love when I discovered them on Instagram! Now they’re one of my top recommended sources for wedding websites.

Bliss & Bone offer their services as a free 7-day trial, so you can test it out and see if you like the way everything works. After that, it’s just $12 a month. Once you’re finished with your wedding website, you can cancel the service at anytime.

After selecting a website template on Bliss & Bone, you have multiple color palette, page style, and font options to make it completely customized.

Along with all the other perks, you can enjoy RSVP management, which makes it much easier to handle your guest list. Plus, you’ll be able to create a personalized URL for your wedding website! Fun, right?

Match Your Wedding Theme

Keep it consistent – incorporate your color palette and theme throughout the website, whether it’s through images, fonts, colors, or design. For example, If it’s a formal black-tie wedding, your website should reflect that and be in line with the atmosphere of the event.

Share the Travel Details

Remember to consider the “out of towners”. Whether you’re wedding is local or a destination, provide as much information on travel and accommodations. Did you reserve a block of rooms at any hotels?  Will someone pick them up from the airport, or should they plan on taking an Uber instead? Make sure to include those details along with any discount codes you’ve secured.The more information you can provide your guests for smooth travels, the better.

Post the Timeline

Keep your wedding party and guests in the loop. Breakdown meet up times and important event details over the course of the weekend. Make sure to include the weather and clarify the dress code for each event.

Your timeline can include all the little wedding-day details, like when the bride will get her makeup done or when the groomsmen should arrive at the venue. Or you can stick with big-picture information like the ceremony start time and the estimated time of the reception.

Suggest Local Attractions

When they’re not celebrating your marriage, guests will appreciate personal recommendations on things to do in the area. Include a section that lists: favorite dining spots, parks, museums, group activities, or other nearby attractions.

Once your website is all complete, put the URL on every piece of communication about the wedding! Emails, invitations, save-the-date cards— print & share it on everything. Be sure to keep updating the website during the weeks leading up to the wedding so that all your guests will have of-the-moment info to guide them. This will help minimize  last-minute questions.
