You may have heard of building a personalized wedding website to organize and communicate about your wedding. Do you need a wedding website? Simply put, no. Should you have one? That depends. Take a look at the list below to see the list of benefits and if any of them seem like a good reason to have one for yourself.
1. Simplifies Communication
Having a wedding website simplifies the communication process. You can let your guests know exactly what you’re thinking by writing it on your website. Most websites have a “registry” tab where you can list all the stores you are registered at. Because it is listed on the website, and NOT in the invitation, you are still following the rules of etiquette! Some websites or apps like Weduary encourage the social aspect of the wedding, before it starts! Guests who are attending the wedding alone can mingle with other guests online before the wedding day!
2. Easy to RSVP
This is especially good for “green weddings”. In the invitation you can let people know they can RSVP on your wedding website. It is nice to have this option because many people find it easier to fill out a couple spots online and hit “ok”. To follow the rules of etiquette (unless this is a “green wedding) you should still include pre-stamped envelopes in your invitations for people to send in their RSVP’s. Not everyone has a computer, and not everyone will want to send it in that way.
3. You can tell your story
Write about yourself as a couple, how you met, what you like to do, and how excited to are for your upcoming wedding. Add pictures of the two of you as well. This is great for out-of-town guests to look at as they don’t see you on a regular basis and they may or may not know your soon to be spouse.
