Step 3

Structure your content

Creating the personal wedding website is more than just a formality – make it informative and simultaneously entertaining for your guests. Here are the most common pages you’ll need to have:

Home page

It’s your save-the-date page, where you welcome your guests with a warm message and put the most important details: wedding date, time and location. To announce it, use a countdown timer or a slider. Don’t forget about using your special Instagram hashtag in the feed – guests will share their good wishes right on the website.

About Us section

To create “our love story” website, you will obviously need to place here a personal story about you as a couple (how you met, your engagement story) adding your best romantic pictures and presenting them via the stylish gallery. After the big day, you can also use the page to share with photos of the celebration.

Details

For better navigation, organize the structure in an interactive way. Modern event calendar helps you to put all information about the location, date, timeline, shuttle schedules and suggested attire for each wedding event (rehearsal dinner, ceremony, farewell brunch) in a clear way. To show directions to the venue, you’d better add a map with all the necessary places around: reserved hotel blocks, rentals and sights for out-of-town guests.

RSVP

Create a simple and clear form. Don’t forget about the basic fields and some extra questions you need to be answered: food preferences (vegan/kids menu), music and other additional information.

Registry

Your guests’ presence is present enough! However, all your friends and family might wonder of the best gift ideas, so help them to explore online registries and dream honeymoon funds with direct links. Or just add a donation PayPal button to contribute to your first family funds.

FAQ

Feel free to decide whether you need a wedding website FAQ section or not. However, it’s better to answer all your guests’ questions, like bringing kids or a date, attire to wear, taking photos and etc. Make your celebration comfortable for everyone.

Contacts

Leave your e-mail, WhatsApp number or social media buttons to give your guests an opportunity to reach you. Thus, they can get some necessary details of your big day. 

Step 4
