Tired of answering millions of wedding-related questions every day? Well worry no more, wedding websites are hotter than ever these days. With the help of one of numerous personalized wedding website creators, like Engagepage.com, you and your intended could have a killer site up and running in no time. In the age of going green, these websites offer a convenient and paper free way to disseminate news, tips, and specifics to your guests.

As well as sharing wedding details and information, many couples use this as a portal to share their love story and journey to the alter by writing in diaries and blogging.

These websites can be as simple or complex as you so choose. Having a small wedding? Customize a few tabs like “our story” and a wedding registry to get the job done. Perhaps a larger wedding suits you two more? Well, add all the bells and whistles such as online RSVP forms or a guest book where guests can post a message. Not so tech-savy? Many of these websites offer templates and step-by-step guides to personalize your wedding website.

Although this is a great idea, it can cost you a few pretty pennies to create a truly fabulous wedding website. Many paid services offer free trials - take advantage of this to see if the site will provide everything you need. Below are some sites that we enjoy:

After choosing the perfect site, personal touches such as including a brief story about you and your fiancé and casual snapshots are a must. And don’t forget, this is a fun activity to include your sweetheart on!

Best,
Hilary

Years ago, it was customary for brides sit for a solo portrait session. Well, not anymore.

Today couples are embarking on a quest in search for the perfect shot, together. With studio pictures becoming more drab, couples are looking for more high-concept ideas to capture their love. Many unexpected locales are being sought out to showcase the couple's love.

How about shooting in a field of flowers, inside a bowling ally, or at a baseball stadium? These are just some of the endless possibilities couples are starting to explore for their engagement photos. Not only are couples choosing adventurous places to shoot their photos, they are also coming up with personal touches to enhance their experience.

Perhaps choosing a specific theme, or a particular time period that reflects your connection, or maybe shooting action shots that reflect your playful side. As well as capturing beautiful shots of you and your significant other during your engaged bliss, many photographers offer engagement photos as a part of their wedding photography packages. Not only does this let you test drive your photographer and initially get comfortable, but lets you know what to expect on your big day. 

Today, adding personal touches to your wedding is key, so why not start from the very beginning with your engagement photos?

Best,
Hilary
