Are you looking for a wedding website for your upcoming New England wedding but overwhelmed by all the choices? We’re here to help. We broke it down to a few important questions you need to ask yourself, along with different websites you can use.

wedding-websiteStart by asking yourself, “Do I want to pay to for my wedding website?” This question also goes hand-in-hand with having a custom domain name (Example: ourlastnamewedding.com). Chances are, if you want a custom domain name, you gotta pay, but there are plenty of good free sites to choose from as well. Here’s the break down:

Squarespace.com : Easy to use – drag and drop style, minimal & clean, two weeks free trial & a custom domain name. Browse Squarespace wedding templates here. ($14/month, no coding needed)

Wix.com : Completely customizable & user-friendly, hundreds of templates to choose from and a custom domain available in paid option. Browse Wix wedding templates here.  (free – with a paid option, no coding needed)

WeddingWire.com : More than just a website; it also comes with free wedding planning tools (checklist, budget, seating chat, guest lists & more). 400+ website designs, browse here.  (free, no coding needed)

Now of course, these are just a few of the many options available (like all things wedding related!). But, with our years of experience in the wedding industry, we have found these to be the most popular and easy-to-use.

So once you’ve chosen which platform is going to help you build your website, you have to begin thinking of what you want to include. This is where the Dos & Don’ts come in.

Do’s & Don’ts

  • Add your engagement photos and your love story. Unlike Facebook, your website is a place where you don’t have to worry about “over-sharing.” The people visiting your page want to know more about you and your fiancee.
  • You can even add an “about the wedding party” section. This is a fun way to introduce who will be taking part in your big day and gives your guests a chance to get to know them.
  • While it is still seen as unacceptable to add your registry on your invitations or save the dates, your website is a great spot to share your registry information!
  • Add travel information for guests from afar. Where can they stay? What is there to do in the area? This will help these guests make travel arrangements in advance. And they are more likely to come if they can make a mini vacation out of it!
  • If you choose to blog about the wedding planning process, remember to stay positive! Adding rants or complaining is only going to create drama and steer away guests from your site.
  • Create your site as early as possible (before the save the dates if you can). By sharing the word about your big day early, you’ll be able to iron out all the details in the upcoming planning faster.

Hope this post answers a few questions you have been debating. Happy website building!
