Hello ladies & gents!
I thought it would be fun to talk about wedding websites. They are definitely not a wedding must-have and they are definitely not for everyone but I personally love them! I think they are great to keep out of town guests and/or guests you don't see or talk to often in the loop about your wedding! With us, it is perfect because we live in BC and all our family and friends are in Ontario, so it is so much easier to have all the details in one place for them to have full access to whenever they want. This also saves everyone from unnecessary phone calls etc. We just don't have the time to call or message each confused guest with details of the wedding. Plus we have our RSVP on the website too! Which I love because it saves paper, postage and it so much easier to do.
Let me tell you a bit about our website. We used Wix: https://www.wix.com/. Its a completely free website creator, you can purchase premium domains and what not but no obligation. We just stuck with the 100% free option. You can choose from hundreds of templates or you can do it all from scratch. It has a super easy edit mode so even if you aren't super creative or good with computers (like me) it will be a piece of cake! On our website, we were able to create an event, which then allows you to add an RSVP section. You can keep this page hidden until you are ready to receive your RSVPs. We were also able to link our registry, which is our honeyfund PayPal account. There are so many cool features you can have and play around with or you can just have it simple. We have it pretty basic, homepage, wedding page, guest page and questions page. On the wedding page, it has info on the venue, timeline etc most of which are hidden until after the invitations are sent. On the guest page, it has info on possible hotel block and transportation. On the questions page, are just some questions guests may have and our answers!
Here is a little look at our website!
This part is super cool, you can lock the website so only those with the password are able to login. This is awesome to keep your privacy.
The menu bar is along the top, it also has drop-down options when each main page has subpages.
As you can see in the Edit Menu picture there is a little symbol on a few options that is an eye crossed out, this means it is not visible to guests yet.
Well, that is my website! Now let's see or hear about yours!! Did you also use Wix? Did you just stick to the Wedding Wire one? Maybe you used a different site. Let us know! Maybe post a few screenshots of your site or if you're willing even drop us the link so we can fully check it out!
Looking forward to seeing some awesome sites!!
