Wedding Websites – just an idea

February 26, 2013

I was writing recently about the top wedding blogs / wedding website (s) and how it could be of use to any bride or groom.  There are an incredible range and variety of blogs in this list from Style Me Pretty through to RockNRoll Bride.  My personal favourite at the moment Alice in Weddingland.  What all wedding websites have in common is ideas and suggestions to help you, the bride, to get the wedding you want, on the budget you have.

Not an easy thing to do, especially now with the current economic situation.  Do I have an intimate breakfast party, followed by a more general disco themed party for all my friends?  Or how about the venue - what should it be?  A historic house with a marquee in the grounds such as Smedmore House or perhaps somewhere quiet and intimate such as Priston Mill where we were recently or ……. And how much to spend where?  And don’t forget the entertainment!

Creating your OWN wedding website

However I came across this idea whilst searching around the web – creating a wedding website specifically for your wedding.  Though to be fair it could work for pretty much any event, I guess.

The idea is simple enough; you create a simple, easy to share web site which holds all the information you need to share with your guests. Invites (especially useful when you have guests overseas), suggestions about local hotels, wedding gift lists.  The list is pretty much endless.  Want to tell everyone a bit about yourselves and how you met - this is an easy way.  Got some photos you want to share after the event?  The site will probably be able to do that.  There are a load of sites (a search for “create your own wedding website” will throw up masses - and the knot (although obviously American) are personal favourites at the moment.

That’s all for now - I hope you’ve found this useful.
