Unique Wedding Website using Blogger. Image: The Budget Savvy Bride
Market yourself, your groom and your wedding with a wedding website. It’s not only a cinch to find a template, publish and share but guests will appreciate the extra effort.
Yes, traditional wedding stationery is still important, such as save the dates, bridal shower invites, wedding invitations and thank you cards. But in the age of iPhones and iPads, having a website can be a time saver for guests.
Why should you have a wedding website? It provides an easy platform for you to share pertinent info with your guests. You can post your engagement pictures, registry, venue/reception directions, vendor links, honeymoon destination, etc.
You choose the design template and what you’d like published on the site, including optional information. For example, share the story of how you and your fiance met (especially helpful for whirlwind courtships) or allow guests to RSVP online. It saves a stamp, a trip to the post office and helps reduce wedding stationery costs.
Many top wedding sites offer websites for free or a nominal fee. It also helps organize guest lists, reception seating and mailing addresses so you can simply print labels for wedding invites or thank you notes.
If you spend a little time up front creating a wedding website, it will save you more time down the road. If a guest leaves for the ceremony without the invite and directions, he/she can simply visit your site on their electronic device and find all the valuable info. It saves you time and your guests.
A simple Google search will direct you to popular free wedding websites, but you can also create your own using sites like Blogger. Make sure you do your research first, so that you don’t find yourself jumping through hoops or paying for something you thought was free.
