Couples are catching on to the modern digital time, leaving paper behind and turning to online wedding websites. From what we’ve gathered, this transformation has generated a mix of feelings. Many couples are finding it quite useful during their busy stages of planning, while others are calling it narcissistic. Despite others doubts, we think wedding websites are becoming valuable tools during these crucial stages of planning, and we’ll give you 5 reasons why.
1. Easy Registry Access
Instead of trying to direct your guests to an online registry, why not direct them to your personal website! Not only does a personal website give you the flexibility of creating a registry after you send out the invitations, it also lets guests easily access your registry along with all your other important information!
2. Those Last Minute Changes
There are a lot of things you have to plan ahead of time before you send out those first save the date cards. Once those cards are mailed, everything is set in stone! So what happens if you later decide to change the location or time? Are you going to spend two days making 100 different phone calls to update each guest? Instead of trying to nail everything down on your invitations or making 100 phone calls when plans have changed, creating an online website gives you the flexibility you need when making those last minute changes, by informing your guests all in one place!
3. It’s Eco-Friendly
Doing everything on paper is nice, but it can also be costly. Not only does the cost of printing and shipping put a mark on your budget, it’s also affecting the environment! So whether you’re working within a tight budget or trying to lower your environmental footprint, we suggest using a free online website. Remember, every little bit helps!
4. Good For Directions
We know it’s not easy giving your guests explicit directions on a small invitation. But we can also assure you that you don’t want to be spending the last week before your wedding on the phone giving your guests directions. Instead, using a website allows you to easily upload your directions and map, so all of your guests can receive the same information all in one place! Your last week is crunch time, so don’t spend it on the phone!
5. Easy To Stay In-Touch With Guests
Lots of couples try to stay connected with their guests leading up to the wedding via email, phone, or text messaging. Instead of trying to manage a number of conversations scattered across a range of technologies and networks, why not create your own online network so guests can easily connect in one place. This way, you have a designated wedding space where you can connect with guests, and guests can connect with each other!
There are so many other reasons why you should be using a wedding website, but we hope we’ve already convinced you! If you decide to use a website, here are just a few great websites we’ve heard of that can help get you started! We hope this has been useful and we wish you the best of luck during your wedding planning ventures!
