One of the helpful tools for couples today is a wedding website. A wedding website is a place online where you can put all the details of your wedding: from budgeting to the chosen suppliers. You can also put a variety of media there, probably images of your wedding, or a map to your location, or music that inspires you and your partner. It's a tool where you can share to your family and friends -- and to the rest of the world -- about your wedding plans and even details of the after-party.
If you search Google for wedding websites, you will see tons of wedding website providers. Some of them free and some that come with an annual charge. Most wedding websites have features that are really helpful for brides- and grooms-to-be such as budget tools, RSVPs, and audio and photo/video tools. You can also list down your chosen vendors, post your own inspiration boards, or even write about your love story in your wedding website. Wedding websites also come with cute templates, and there are a lot to choose from that match your wedding style.
Here are a few of the well-known free wedding website providers you can check out:
1) WeddingAnnouncer.com - During my own wedding preps, this was one of the sites used by most of the b2b's I encountered in a local forum. Tools included are wedding event information, gift registry information, maps, and RSVP.
2) MyWedding.com - It's also free and comes with the useful wedding tools. What I like about this site is that they have beautiful templates. The templates also come with matching invitations from companies like Wedding Paper Divas and Papeterie.
3) WeddingWire.com - Reminders, checklists, and even a drag-and-drop seating arrangement tool are just some of its features. They also have designer templates you could choose from, like those from Martha Stewart Weddings or the site's original designs.
4) eWedding.com - They have features like polls, quizzes, and bridal registries. But if you upgrade to a paid subscription, you can use their online media, download feature, email support, and even have a custom domain name.
Wedding websites help make planning easier for you. And it's also a good place to let everyone know about what you're going to do, what they need to know, and what they just missed. It's easy to put up one so go get started now.
