A wedding is a big event. It is of course one of the most beautiful days of your life... But it is also difficult to organize ! In this context, creating a wedding website will help you on two levels:

  • You will be able to use it for the organization of the event, the management of the information to be given, and the wedding list on the internet. So your website will act as a wedding announcement.

  • But you can also create a nice place to share your memories (photos, movies, guestbook, anecdotes...) after the party.

How to create an effective wedding website (that will facilitate the preparation), and a pretty one, that you will want to share with your loved ones and keep as a souvenir?

Come on, start publishing the banns, we'll see everything in detail!

How to create a wedding website easily and for free?

To make a wedding website, in a few moments, for free, or at a very affordable price, the best solution seems to be the use of a website builder.

This type of tool (the one we offer on SiteW!) allows you to build your website yourself, in no time, even if you are not a computer expert.

It's simple, everything is done in front of your eyes, on the screen, using the mouse, thanks to the drag and drop system:

  1. You register  

  2. You choose a template (there is a wedding template)

  3. You name your website

  4. You start your creation!

You can then add images, text, a map, custom forms, polls, widgets... Or any other element you deem useful, with the mouse.

And of course, the design of your wedding website is entirely customizable (colors, shapes, icons, strips, fonts, site background, buttons, animations, etc.), in just a few clicks!

Go ahead, create your website

Create your wedding website: an asset for the preparation

As we said in the introduction of this article, creating a wedding website will literally make your life easier during this stressful period that is preparing for a wedding.

Anticipate the creation of your wedding website: it should be ready when you send out the invitations, about 8 months before the big day. You will then be able to add your website address to your wedding invitations.

The major advantage of creating a wedding website is that it can be modified at any time and can evolve. So, if there is any change, you can easily update your wedding website.

Another benefit is the interactive aspect that allows an easy and direct connection with your guests. This is not only more pleasant for your guests, but it also saves you time by reducing the number of phone calls from people who want to ask questions or get information.

Indeed, all the information about your event is listed in detail on your wedding website.

Making a wedding website: useful features for the preparation

When you start making your wedding website, you will be able to find many features that will help you to organize yourself better and save you time and energy.

  • For example, you can add a contact form, allowing your friends and family to ask you questions and send their comments in a few clicks.

  • You can even integrate a FAQ section, if you have received the same question from several people.

  • By inserting a Google Map, you will be able to indicate with precision the location of the reception venue and help your guests find the best deals on accommodation near your venue. It is advisable to also create a printable version of the map, by including a downloadable file, so that everybody can study it, and have it in their pocket on the big day.

  • When you start creating your website, you can easily take advantage of it to add your wedding gift list, in the form of links, for example. Or to display the wedding menu.

  • As far as the gifts are concerned, you can add a PayPal donation button, if it is useful for you.

Wedding website design: interaction with your guests

What's cool is that with a website builder like ours, you can have multiple levels of privacy:

  • You can, for example, create password-protected pages that are only accessible to the bride and groom or guests.

  • And Member pages (or by using a different password) accessible to the witnesses of the wedding, for example.

  • It is also possible to deindex your site from Google: in this way, your website will only be accessible by typing the URL directly into the address bar.

As far as communication with your guests is concerned, the possibilities are numerous:

  • You will be able to conduct surveys or use custom forms to ask questions to your guests, and thus know who is coming or not.

  • You will also be able to create music playlists, in order to keep your guests informed on any details.

  • Setting up a wedding blog allows you to animate your site, and to keep your friends and family informed about the wedding plans.

Make a wedding website that is both practical and beautiful

You can take advantage of your wedding website, to slip in a few photos of the bride and groom, and add a description of them. Your relatives will be delighted to know a little more about you.

You can easily create a nice website for your wedding. For example, on our platform, you can add shapes, strips, icons to your site in no time. It will also be possible to customize the background of your site, the colours, the animations, and the fonts… According to your tastes and in agreement with the design of your invitations or of the reception hall.

With a “Counter” widget, you can, with a simple click, display a countdown to the big day.

With a “Weather” widget, you can inform your guests in advance of the weather situation.

Making your wedding website: an advantage after the party

But your wedding website can become a digital photo album in no time:

  • With an image gallery, you can create nice photo albums on your wedding website that you can sort by topic (vin d'honneur, ceremony, meal, dance, day after the wedding, etc.).

  • You will also have the possibility to provide a guestbook in which guests can write messages of congratulations and goodwill.

  • It will be easy for you to post the videos of the event. Or sound extracts (recordings of speeches, for example).

  • It can also be the ideal place to share your thanks and post photos and videos of your honeymoon.

Create a website

With these few indications, you will be able to create a beautiful wedding website that will prove to be a follow-up and a help for your preparations, a wonderful place to share with your loved ones, and which, to top it all off, will allow you to remember the most beautiful memories.
