Why You Need a Website for your Wedding

Image blog WebSelfAre you one of the lucky ones who got engaged last Valentine’s day? First of all, congratulations! WebSelf wishes you much joy and happiness! We know that you must now have a lot to do: find a reception room, an officiant, a dress, food… You might be overwhelmed by everything that needs to be prepared right now.  Let us give you an advice: make your own wedding website because it will allow you to save money and time. Are you skeptical? Then read the following lines.

Gather all information at the same place

When you tell people you are getting married, it comes with a lot of things to say. Where will it be? Will it be celebrated in a church or at the city hall? Will there be a DJ or musicians? How can we get there? Where can we sleep? Imagine that you have to repeat all answers again and again. Isn’t it a little annoying? This is why we suggest you make your own wedding website in order to have all the information related to the event at the same place. Moreover, we saw a few examples of wedding websites where the lovers added their love story, pictures, and a summary of their engagement. Since it is not all guests that know everything about your relationship, especially colleagues, this helps them to be up to date at the wedding.  

But what can you put on your website? Our answer: everything you want! Of course, you can put the schedule of the day, maps of the places, links to hotels and lodges, as well as the required dress code. After your big day, you can also use your website to share pictures or words of thanks with your guests. Thus, your wedding website is a direct reflexion of you. You can add anything you want, whether it is information, texts, pictures, links, and even videos.

Use the contact form as a wedding invitation

Do you have any ideas about how long it will take to do all your wedding invitations? You first need to gather all your guest addresses, then print the invitations, and send them all to receive the answers. These printings and postal shippings can cost you a small fortune if you have a lot of guests. Why not use your website contact form to have your friends and family answers? Our provided contact form can easily be modified to an RSVP page. You can also send a wedding invitation newsletter to your guests and ask them to answer directly on your website, where they will have access to all needed information. The contact form can also be used if your guests want to contact you.
