Using a wedding website may not have been the first thing you thought of when you began planning your wedding. With everything that is involved in planning a destination wedding, you can help keep it all under control with a personal wedding website.
Many couples are hesitant to put their information out there. There isn't any reason to be. It gives all of your friends and family a chance to stay up to date with everything going on and lets them feel like they are a part of the process. It's a great way to get all the information out there and is a real time saver.
With a destination wedding you may have people coming from all over and going to a place that is far away. You can not only let everyone know what is going on in your life, but also let them know about the great place they are going to.
You can place maps, itineraries and local information about your travel destination right on the wedding web site. They can contact you, the travel agent or even R.S.V.P. right there.
You can include your personal web site in your save the date cards. Let everyone know that any updates about travel arrangements, cars, hotels and maps will be there. It will save you lots of phone time whenever there is a change or new information to get out.
You can also include online registry information. You'll be surprised with how many of your guests will use the R.S.V.P. and online registry options. It's really convenient. You won't need to worry about your guests bringing gifts to Hawaii. They can have them delivered to your house or a family member's.
There are many ways to involve your guests. You can have polls or quizzes. Tell stories about you as a couple and what is happening as you plan your wedding. You can also keep your website after the wedding for updates and pictures of the wedding. You can even convert it to a different personal website if you would like. Maybe a baby website? (No pressure...)
The websites are really easy to create. There's no need to know how to build a website. You will only need to scroll through the options and choose the ones that are best for you. You have lots of designs to choose from and will end up with a very personal website.
Have fun and keep everyone informed. A personal wedding website is the perfect answer!
