It seems like a new idea, but the wedding website has really been circling around for a few years now. What’s more surprising, is how few couples actually take advantage of this service. It’s understandable to shy away from it if you’ve never gotten along well with computers, but let me give you an idea of what your missing out on, and why having a wedding website will make your entire wedding run much, much more smoothly.
1.) A website doesn’t get lost. As much effort as you’re putting into your invitations (and yes, they look absolutely stunning), many of your guests are going to lose them, along with all the additional information you stuffed them with. Nearby hotels, directions to the wedding venue, where you and your fiancé are registered, the dress code, all of it: gone. A wedding website allows you to put all this information in one place, so even your most disorganized guests will have a place to find all the information they need.
2.) Websites are more intimate. This may seem counter intuitive, of course, and you’ve probably got your mother in your ear explaining how hand-written invitations are much more meaningful, but I stand by my statement. Websites allow you to upload much,much more than what you could put in a mail-out invitation. You can add countless photos of you and your fiancé, not to mention photos of important people in the wedding party. People are going to need to get ahold of the Maid of Honor and the Best Man for various things and a website lets people know how to get ahold of them and just who exactly they are. Plus, how awkward is it go to a wedding and not know the bride’s parents or the groom’s brother? A website takes care of these issues.
3.) Websites are active 24 hours a day. You know those idiots (oh yes, I’m calling them idiots) that end up calling the bride on the day of her wedding asking for directions to the venue? Yeah, a wedding website will cut those idiots in half, if not eliminate them completely. And no one has to worry about when they can or can’t get ahold of you. Think of it as your own personal wedding secretary; the website will have all the required information and it will be available to all of your guests every second of the day. That’s got to be enough to give you a little sigh of relief.
4.) Websites are convenient. Attending a wedding is more of a process than many people think it is. You have to find a place to stay, figure out something to wear, buy the couple a gift, get time off work, book your tickets, budget for the trip, etc. So make things easier on your guests. Having all the information in one area will make it infinitely easier for them to book their trip, find out where you’re registered and RSVP.
