So you’re getting married! Congratulations! Now spread the word with your custom wedding website made with love by Always Ever After. However, don’t leave it too late Here’s why…
When to Create and Share Your Wedding Website
There’s no such thing as creating and sharing your wedding website too soon. It’s the easiest way to give guests a preview on every wedding detail as you go along, so the earlier you spread the word, the better. You’ll want to give guests access to your gift registry as early as possible, since some of them might want to take their time to decide what they can afford/want to gift you. It’s also the perfect place to show your favorite couple photos (or brand-new engagement photos) along with the story of how you met and got engaged.
More generally, though, you can think of your wedding website as a replacement to your save-the-dates. Technically, the only information you need to put on save-the-dates is your actual date, right? The same goes for your site (at least for now). Along the way, you’ll want to update your wedding website as more details come together, like your venue, wedding party members, wedding weekend events and attire—but the basics are all you need to start.
How to Share Your Wedding Website
Send your wedding website URL to your friends through whatsapp and print it on your formal invitations, And while posting your wedding website publicly on social media seems like the easiest way to debut your website, it could cause more harm than good (non-invited friends could feel left out or even worse, nasty comments). If you’re going to take the social media route, like Facebook, consider sharing all wedding-related details in a private message or group.
Update Your Wedding Website
You should occasionally refresh your website with updated details and re-share it with guests to keep them in the loop. Seriously, don’t be shy! It’s a long time between when they receive the URL the first time and when you say “I do,” so they’ll welcome the (occasional) reminder as you add new information—like if you’ve blocked hotel rooms or provided entertainment options for your out of town guests. Think of it as a one-stop place for wedding FAQ—your guests can head there for answers to all of their burning wedding questions instead of calling and texting you.
