In­for­ma­tion to in­clude on your wed­ding web­site

The Drumheller Mail - - WEDDING -

Per­sonal web­sites are an in­valu­able re­source for cou­ples plan­ning their wed­dings. Wed­ding web­sites pro­vide a great plat­form for cou­ples to share all sorts of in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing their big day, mak­ing them an es­sen­tial el­e­ment of mod­ern-day wed­ding plan­ning.

Wed­ding web­sites need not fea­ture all the bells and whis­tles of more per­ma­nent sites. But while there are spe­cific guide­lines gov­ern­ing what to in­clude on wed­ding web­sites, cou­ples should be mind­ful to share cer­tain in­for­ma­tion to en­sure their guests stay in the know about the pend­ing nup­tials. The par­tic­i­pants

Wed­ding web­sites can be used to in­form guests about the cou­ple get­ting mar­ried as well as the var­i­ous par­tic­i­pants, such as the brides­maids and grooms­men. Ex­tended fam­i­lies of the bride- and groom-to-be may not know much about their loved one’s be­trothed, and the wed­ding web­site can help guests get to know both peo­ple get­ting mar­ried. In­clude in­for­ma­tion about the bridal party as well. A brief story about each bridal party mem­ber’s re­la­tion­ship to the bride and/or groom can be a great way to il­lus­trate just how much each per­son in the party means to the cou­ple ty­ing the knot. The big day

In­vi­ta­tions were once the go-to source for in­for­ma­tion about cou­ples’ wed­ding cer­e­monies and re­cep­tions. But un­like in­vi­ta­tions, web­sites won’t get lost around the house or in the mail, mak­ing them more re­li­able re­sources for guests. In­clude all the per­ti­nent de­tails about the big day on your web­site, in­clud­ing the time and lo­ca­tion of both the cer­e­mony and the re­cep­tion. In­clude di­rec­tions to and from the venue (both the cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion venues if they will be held at sep­a­rate lo­ca­tions), and in­clude a Google maps fea­ture if pos­si­ble. RSVP info

Save guests the trou­ble of re­turn­ing RSVP cards by in­clud­ing an RSVP sec­tion on your web­site. Es­tab­lish an email ad­dress solely for RSVPs, and check it reg­u­larly so you can up­date who is and who is not at­tend­ing your wed­ding. Cou­ples can save the ex­pense of postage by re­quest­ing that guests RSVP ex­clu­sively through their web­sites. Just be sure to in­clude that re­quest with the in­vi­ta­tions if you still plan to mail more tra­di­tional in­vites. Ac­com­mo­da­tions

Many cou­ples ar­range for dis­counted ho­tel rooms for their out-of-town wed­ding guests. In­clude this in­for­ma­tion on your wed­ding web­site, and aim to in­clude at least two ho­tels where guests can reg­is­ter un­der your party and re­ceive dis­counted lodg­ing. In ad­di­tion to the ho­tels you ar­range a deal with, in­clude some ex­tra in­for­ma­tion about other lodg­ing op­tions in the area. Out-of-town guests will ap­pre­ci­ate hav­ing as many op­tions as pos­si­ble, and cou­ples pro­vid­ing that in­for­ma­tion saves guests the trou­ble of re­search­ing cer­tain neigh­bor­hoods to de­ter­mine if they are safe or close to the cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion sites. Reg­istry

Wed­ding web­sites also pro­vide a great way for cou­ples to share reg­istry in­for­ma­tion. In­clude links that take guests di­rectly to your on­line reg­istries.

Wed­ding web­sites are a great re­source for cou­ples who want to share in­for­ma­tion about their wed­dings. As the big day draws closer, cou­ples can up­date their sites to re­flect any new de­vel­op­ments.
