In this digital age, it’s not surprising that many people are turning to the Internet as a platform to inform people about their personal events. Case in point: weddings. More and more couples are opting to create a wedding website that contains all the details that guests need to know about the event.
If you’re sticking to a wedding budget, this is a great idea as a wedding website can serve as your invitation… and more!
You don’t have to be a web designer or programmer to have a wedding website. Of course, you can choose to build your own from scratch, but there are a lot of templates and designs that you can choose from, making it much easier and more convenient to have your site up and running quickly.
It’s usually cheaper as well, so you don’t have to worry about going beyond your wedding budget.
So how do you create a wedding website? Here are some pointers to consider:
Choose a platform
Minted, Squarespace, and The Knot are some of the companies that offer sites that you can personalise. All you have to do is sign up and create your site free of charge. However, it may come with a fee should you want to add more functions or features to your site.
Make a custom domain
Forget about complicated URLs. What you need is something that’s short and easy to remember so guests can visit your site right away. More often than not, couples use their first names as their URL. It’s not free, but it’s much better than having the name of the site provider in the URL of your wedding website.
Decide which template to use
There are so many templates to choose from, allowing you to be creative in your site. You can look for something that lets you choose colours and a theme that match your wedding.
Create a list of categories
The beauty of having a wedding website is that you can put everything there but make sure to keep it organised with categories such as RSVP, how to go to the reception venue, gift registry, time of the ceremony, details of your love story and engagement, etc. This also makes it easier for your guests to navigate through your site.
