ive just started planing for my wedding next year and I’ve come across the idea of having a website for the wedding? Is this the done thing now? What would I put on it? FI’s brother is a whizz on computers so could sort something out for me. I’ll be sending STD cards out aince my wedding is on a Monday near the christmas period so some people might need to book time off work. Would i add the website details to this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

@linnylou_88: If you have a lot of guest from out of town, a website is a great idea so that they can keep up with your plans and the details of your wedding. There are plenty of wedding planning websites that will allow you to create your own wedding website. An example would be The Knot. Not sure if the Knot is still applicable if you are in the UK however. 🙂 Websites are lots of fun to design and most of them have prompts to help you create one. 🙂 You can still send out Save-the-Dates and have a wedding website. You can put things on the site like accommodations, things-to-do, pre-wedding activities, etc. Happy Planning!

I made one and I’m having a small, local wedding! They are super easy to make. If you go on the knot you can make a free one with option to upgrade to your own URL for 20 bucks. They spell it right out for you as far as what to include. I’m not exactly computer savvy and it was super easy to make!

You don’t NEED one, but I think it’s an easier way to give extra information about your wedding which isn’t included with your invitation.. gift registries, attendant information, flight/hotel info, as well as a general idea of all of the wedding events.

@jenilynevette: This. I get a little frustrated when I’m invited to a wedding and the couple doesn’t have a wedding website. We went to a wedding in October where they didn’t and we had zero information about the wedding until we got the invitations (~6 weeks out), and at that point, all we had was a location.

I don’t think you NEED one, but if you want to make one and you’d have help, go for it.
Personally, I’ve never known anyone to have a wedding website. Like. Ever. I don’t know, maybe it’s a regional thing?
Where I live, we include all pertinent info. in the invitations and it’s totally normal. A lot of my guests invited to my wedding are super elderly and wouldn’t even know how to turn a computer on so in my case a wedding website would be kind of pointless, lol.
I also wonder ….. what if someone who isn’t invited to your wedding stumbles across your website? All the info. is there so basically anyone can show up, right? That would worry me. Has anyone even run into this problem? I feel like it could be a big issue.

@Stace126: Idk about all of them, but the wedding websites I’ve seen have passwords. You have to have the password to be able to access it.

We have a wedding website because we are having quite a few out of town guests. It also has our registry info on it, engagement pics, and just some other general info. I did mine through ewedding.com which has a bunch of free options or you can upgrade for like $5. It doesn’t require a password so its easy to jot down for people.
