You've got your venue selected, your vendors booked and (after countless Pinterest searches and bridal shop appointments) your dream dress on lock. Thanks to modern technology, planning your wedding can seem as easy as the click of a button. And once you've found the right tools set your budget and organize your to-do's, all that's left to do is say "I do," right?
Even after all the big decisions have been made, there's still one wedding planning tool you can't forget about: your free wedding website. From preventing common dilemmas to providing important info that's accessible just about anywhere, we think it's one of the most practical tools to help you coordinate the best day ever. Here are three things you can add to your wedding website to make sure your wedding goes smooth as silk.
One of the most awkward parts about weddings? Communicating your registry info. While it has always a major no-no to include it in your save-the-dates or wedding invites (that also goes for social media), relying on word of mouth is a tradition that will never die, and your wedding website is a great way take it a step further. Your website is helpful for conveying day-of details, but make sure to include a page to your wedding registry early on. Sure, you can still count on friends and family to spread the word, but including your website in your save-the-dates makes it that much easier for your guests to shop for that new bedroom set at the top of your wishlist.
Let's face it - refrigerators can only hang up so many papers, and your wedding invitation doesn't need to get lost in the mix. Although the location, hotel, directions and other important deets should be included in the invites, it never hurts to include it elsewhere for your guests to access. Because if someone loses their invitation (and it's bound to happen), you won't have time to answer phone calls from guests asking how to get to your venue the day of.
If there's one thing to keep in mind throughout wedding planning, it's this: not everything will go as planned. And that's okay. If you need to change your venue or wedding date for whatever reason, all you have to do is update it on your wedding website. Need to suggest additional accomodations? Provide them on your wedding website. Excited to upload your engagement photos? Share them with your guests via your wedding website. You get the point - it makes it easy to update anything, stat.
