St. Audries Park is a magnificent wedding venue, steeped in history and heritage. Yet we love technology as much as the next person. It makes modern life easier, and that includes the wedding planning process. You can have contacts and inspiration at your fingertips; planning a dream wedding becomes enjoyable. Wedding websites have become particularly popular in recent years as a result.
Here we explore just some of the benefits of forgoing tradition and embracing technology via the design and development of your very own wedding website.
Keep it personal
Adding a personal touch to your wedding doesn’t have to wait until the day itself. Starting as you mean to go on with a personalised wedding website is an excellent way of showcasing what’s to come for your guests.
A wedding website sets the tone in terms of your wedding style, colour palette and theme. It also makes life easier for you and your partner. By bringing together all your wedding guests in one place, you can post relevant information to keep everyone informed. That’s right, you don’t have to ring each and every entry on your wedding guest list!
It serves so many purposes
Wedding websites aren’t just great for notifying your guests of information and changes ahead of your big day. Your website can act as your invitation and a forum to create a buzz about your big day long before your wedding date arrives. You can also use your digital guest list to request RSVPs, dietary requirements and other details that will help fine-tune your wedding day.
After your wedding has been and gone you don’t have to shut down your website. Whilst your photographer will have been charged with photographing your big day professionally, there are some shots only your guests will think to capture. Your wedding website is the perfect platform for guests to share any photographs they took of your special day, away from prying eyes on social media. Prior to your wedding, your website can also double as a wedding registry.
It’s completely free
There’s certain to be fees if you draft in a designer or developer to create a wedding website on your behalf. But if you have the time, there are many companies that you can use to create your own wedding website for free. Zankyou is a wedding website builder that comes highly recommended. It’s not only free but easy to use, even if you’re not the best with technology. You can also choose to enter as much or as little information as you like.
It’s great for the planet too
A wedding website is good for your budget. It’s also a green way of coordinating your wedding as PopSugar explains:
“No matter how you use it, your site will probably save you cash on paper and stamps, not to mention the trees you’ve saved by using less paper and carbon emissions you’ve spared by not loading the mailman down with a whole lot of envelopes. Whether you prefer to go completely paperless and use your site for everything or just plan to ask for eRSVPs for a portion of your wedding-related festivities, every little bit helps.”
