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:
WeddingChannel.com :: Free
Couples who want a quick and easy site
WedPageDesigns.com :: $29.95 for 18mos.
Those on a budget who want a few more perks
WeddingWindow.com :: $79 for 12mos.
Modern couples who appreciate the extras
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!
