Organising and planning your wedding is a lot of fun, but can sometimes feel like a bit of a logistical nightmare! Anything that helps take some of the stress away is definitely good news in our opinion, and one thing that is bound to make your planning run more smoothly is your own wedding website. We speak to GettingMarried.co.uk, who specialise in beautiful wedding websites, to get all the info on how getting your own site can help you organise your perfect wedding.
You can make it personal to you
"With plenty of gorgeous templates to choose from, you can match your website to your wedding theme for that all-encompassing style. You can also add photos of yourself along with pictures of the ceremony and reception venues. For inspiration on the website's look and feel, there's a section filled with sample sites to see how others have done it, plus you can check out our blog with weekly hints and tips."
You can use it as your organisation tool
"Your wedding website is the perfect organisational tool, with an RSVP manager so there's no confusion, plus you won't have to worry about trying to find out 100+ postal addresses (does anyone actually know that stuff anymore?) and guests can reply with ease. Not to mention the amount of money saved by going digital rather than paying for printed save the dates, invites, RSVPs, envelopes and the postage costs – phew!"
It's quick, easy and free
"Creating and designing your wedding website can be done in a matter of minutes, and there are lots of tools you can add to the site too. Add a countdown clock to the big day and interactive polls to get opinions from your guests on food, music and who will cry first on the day. Plus, you can integrate your Prezola wedding gift list into your site so guests can do it all in one place. It's all free too so you won't have any added expense!"
Set your table plan and share your menus
"You can also organise your table plan on a GettingMarried.co.uk website and share your reception menu, giving guests the option to choose their food online. For that added personalised touch, there's also the ability to pick your own website URL (e.g. sarahmike.gettingmarried.co.uk – it's a lot easier for guests to remember too!) For a private feeling, why not add a password given only to guests to avoid any awkward moments with those who aren't invited…?"
Share your directions for all your guests
"Worried about your guests getting to the venue? There's the option to add Google Maps to your personalised website with full directions, so they don't get lost on the way! You can even add hotel recommendations and the distances to the venue from each one. It makes it super easy for guests to arrange accommodation and there's even an area where guests can sort out travel and car-sharing too."
