We feel you, planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful, from choosing a photographer, venue, dress, florist and sooo much more it is hard not to get totally overwhelmed. A great way to build anticipation in the lead up and a place to house your memories of the day afterwards, is to create a wedding website. We chatted to GoDaddy.com to bring you some hot tips on how to utilise this fantastic planning tool.
Before you start crafting your website, decide what you want to use it for and plan accordingly.
Here are a few ideas:
- Act as a digital invitation
- Collect RSVPs from guests
- House maps to clearly show your guests where the events are taking place
- Provide information on hotels and accommodation close to the venue, for guests who are travelling from out-of-town for your special day
- Display a timeline of the big day, and events in the lead-up
- Share registry information
- Share the seating chart
- Act as a digital photo album to display your special memories after the event
...any or all of the above!
This can be as easy as combining your names together, thinking about something unique to you two as a couple or something your guests would remember you by - get creative! You could even use this name as the hashtag for guests to use on the big day!
Design and Layout
This is the fun bit! Customise your website with images, graphics, colours, fonts anything you see fit that you think will express yourselves as a couple. Just remember to make your website easy to navigate as not all of your visitors will be as computer savvy as you.

A wedding website can help to minimise the time and stress spent communicating all things ‘wedding’ with your guests, particularly if you have guests residing in different states, or even countries. It can also help to act as a permanent reminder of your special day for you, your partner and your guests for years down the track if you so choose. Given that you can create a website in under an hour, what are you waiting for? Get started on a website for your special day today.
