Having a wedding website was such a great (and easy) tool that can be used for a number of reasons – here
potentially being used to knock some items off of your wedding checklist (
If you just want to get a feel for what ours looked like: www.mattisonskywedding.com
(apparently weddingwire changed their templates a bit so it doesn’t look exactly the same as it did – some things were removed, changed, etc.)
Ultimately, for us, it helped share information with our guests! We had a local wedding but many of our guests were coming from out of town, cross or out of the country. Given that, we found that keeping guests updated or having an outlet for them to look up pertinent information to plan travel and about the wedding in general was helpful to them and to us.
I don’t know about you, but you probably have enough on your plate juggling work, family, fun, wedding planning…it ALL, without having family and friends (some you know, some you don’t lol) calling or emailing to ask questions. Save yourself and create a wedding website.
We created one with WeddingWire
but The Knot
has nice templates as well. I wanted to go with WeddingWire
because I have a lot of friends that work for the company but I still did my due diligence and found that it also had the most user friendly sites in my opinion.
There were so many tools available on the site as a whole that I didn’t even use but you might find helpful:
1. Budget Management
2. Keep track of Guest List
3. Seating Chart
5. Vendor List
I didn’t use the site to its’ potential, but for those that want to or need to – take a little time to create your site, grab a glass of champagne, darling and exhale!
