How to Build a Personalized Wedding Website

By Lea Ann Fessenden-Joseph

  • Overview

    Your big date has been set, the ball is rolling in warp speed toward your wedding, and you are inundated with trivial phone calls. What better way to lessen the stress on a bride than by setting up a personal wedding website? It is almost like having a personal wedding assistant 24/7. All important dates, times, locations and maps can be stored in one easy reference place.
    Keep the stress at bay with a wedding website
    • Step 1

      There are a number of ways to obtain a personalized wedding website. Some are free, while others have a small charge attached. In either case, you want to be able to personalize and make changes at will. You will want to keep the site up for a few months, both before and after the wedding, so you can post those honeymoon photos for your friends and family to see. Some even provide your own personal names in the URL, such as johnandjudy.com. Myevents.com (see the second link in the Resources section) offers a free trial membership, and then charges $9.95 a month to continue. You will only need if for perhaps 6 months, so there is little cost associated with this big time-saver.
    • Step 2

      Choose a design template. They will offer a number of different beautiful templates to personalize your wedding website. Choose your colors and design, and off you go!

    • Step 3

      Add the pertinent details such as wedding date, time, location and map. Rehearsal dinner, wedding showers, bachelor party, and bachelorette party details can all be included on your site, if you wish. Insert hyperlinks to restaurants, menus, your wish lists, or anything you want!

    • Step 4

      Upload great photos of you and your significant other as well as family members. Add your own childhood photos, and even make a special memory book of family members who have passed on.
    • Step 5

      Download your favorite songs, blog about your daily experiences together, change your fonts, or add a countdown clock to the big day -- there is just so much you can do. Adding a wedding website will be fun, and will be really appreciated by family and friends further away. Now that you have your website, be sure to add the URL to your invitations so that everyone can check it out.
