@BabyBrain:  I love wedding websites! I like being able to have the registry information instead of relying on word of mouth, and it’s nice to have all of the information consolidated into one place. I also find that you’re able to put way more information on a site than you would on an insert.

@BabyBrain:  About him, about her (for larger weddings where relatives may not know the bride or groom well), how you met, how he proposed, wedding party (MOB, FOB, bridesmaids, MOG, FOG, groomsmen, flower girl, ringbearer), venue (address, map, and directions), travel options (local airport, train station), hotel accommodations and room blocks/discounts, nearby attractions and eateries, schedule of events, guest book, contact information.

 

ETA: Dress code, detailed menu (so those with food allergies can give you a heads up). These are all just suggestions. You certainly don’t need all of this if you feel it’s unnecessary.

@BabyBrain:  I made a wedding website right before we sent out save the dates and I’ve gotten nothing but positive feedback from my guests. We didn’t want a ton of inserts in the invitations so this was a place for us to put all of our info. Any time a relative has a question about accomodations or directions, we refer them to the website. 

The website includes:

-Information on the venue, ceremony times, weather plans (ie. bring a sweater)
-Accommodation information (with links)
-Photo Galleries (pictures from our relationship and engagement pictures)
-Things to do in the area (since most of my side is from out of town)

It took me a few evenings to put everything together but it was so worth it.  We plan to include information about a welcome reception for out of town guests and use it after the wedding to share our wedding photos.
