Technology is always evolving. The Bride of 2012 has a lot more tools at her fingertips than the Bride of ten years ago. One of the most important tools for you and your guests is the Wedding Website. Now I know there are some of you who just went into a panic. Website? How much is that going to cost me? Do I need to know computer code? Do I need to hire a professional?
Lets not get all worked up about it yet. Building a Wedding Website is easier now than ever. There are plenty of options on the internet offering free (yes FREE) Wedding Websites. There is a template out there for every bride. I promise you. Most templates organize all your wedding information beautifully and simply in one place. Your guests will be able to see Engagement Pictures, read about your proposal and learn a little about the Bride and Groom. They will also be able to RSVP, find travel information and check out your registry. One really neat feature of the wedding website is being able to blog as information is added or changed. Your family and friends can subscribe to updates so they have up to the minute information on your big day. I assure you it is all very simple.
Companies such as Wedding Jojo create beautiful modern website templates with easy to follow instructions. If you can point and click a mouse you can create a beautiful site that your family and friends will love to look at. Most sites offer free templates and for a small fee (we’re talking less than $20) you can upgrade to a premium package. Never has sharing your wedding with your loved ones been so easy.
So what happens with your Wedding Website after your wedding? Well it’s a great way to share your memories. You can update your site with photographs from your wedding events. You and your guests will love looking through and remembering what a special day your wedding was. Add pictures of your Honeymoon. I’m sure your loved ones will love to see what adventures you went on. You can easily transition from wedding website to family blog using a site like blogger.com. Just because your wedding day is over doesn’t mean that creativity ends.
I hope as you are planning your big day you take the time to look into building yourself a beautiful Wedding Website. They are a great organizational tool for you and a great source of information for your wedding party and guests. Don’t forget to include the web address in your save-the-dates!
