The perfect wedding invitation is a thing of beauty, of course, but in today’s tech-savvy world, guests rely just as much on your wedding website as your stationery for all the important details. Though it requires a little work upfront to put together, having all your information in one place will save you time down the road. Instead of fielding questions and phone calls from guests while you’re wedding planning, they’ll be able to find everything they need to know on your invitation website.
What to include on a wedding website
Pairing a website with your wedding invite allows you keep your invitations as minimal and clean as possible, saving all the fine details for your site. You can put any details that don’t fit on your invitation on your wedding invitation website. But these details are a great place to start:
Though it’s considered a faux pas to include your gift registry on your invitation, you can add a link to your wedding registry on your website.
Add any hotel block information for your guests, including the hotel’s number, your group rate, and the booking deadline.
If your location is off the beaten path, add simple directions so no guest gets lost on their way.
Let guest know if there will be a valet, parking garage, or street parking nearby so they can come prepared. Or plan to take an Uber or Lyft.
Is there a welcome party or day-after brunch? Remind guests of the weekend’s schedule with an easy itinerary.
Consider adding a section to field any questions you can anticipate from your guests. For example: Is your wedding adults-only? Is there a dress code?
Your love story
Whether it’s how you met or how you got engaged, a short and sweet paragraph about your relationship adds a personal touch.
A photo of you and your partner
When it comes to friends from college, coworkers, or your parents friends, there might be some guests that don’t know both you and your partner. Adding a photo on your website is a great way to introduce yourself.
Free wedding invitation websites you can make yourself
If you’re looking to customize your own wedding website for free, Flyer from Paperless Post is a fantastic option. With RSVP functionality, Flyers can serve as your invite and website all in one. But if you already have invites from another paper goods vendor, just remove the RSVP option and Flyers function like a typical website.
When it comes to cheap wedding invitations, Flyer might just be your most stylish option. There are several Flyer wedding website templates to choose from to match the vibe of your wedding. But if you can’t find what you’re looking for, there’s always the option to upload your own design or background. From destination weddings to specific themes, Flyer offers the most flexibility to create something that’s one of a kind.
Once you select a template, you can customize every element from the font and colors to the background and text details. You can upload your own photo, or keep it minimal with a curated background. Then use the details blocks to add additional information like the examples mentioned above (directions, registry, accommodations and more). And viola—you’ve built a custom wedding invitation website, completely free of charge.
