Wedding Website: What's the Difference & Where to Start?

Wedding Website: Where to Start, What’s the Difference, & What’s Needed?

5.11.21

Having a wedding website is by no means a requirement, but many Colorado couples are finding a great way to build excitement for the big day by having a web page dedicated to it! A website is a perfect resource to share more than can fit on a save the date or invitation. Websites can include bonus information to further personalize it like the engagement story, and useful information like links to the gift registry or hotel blocks.

 

If you’re ready to start your own wedding website, we have all the details on where to start, what’s the difference (WeddingWire vs Zola vs The Knot), and what’s included in common wedding websites to make them complete!

Wedding Registries

Popular wedding website providers include registry integration to make it easy for your guests to shop for wedding gifts right from your site! Instead of sharing your long registry link on your physical invite, you can add your website url, saying that your registry and more wedding details are on your wedding website. This encourages guests to use the website as a resource for your big day!

Keep in mind, some wedding-specific websites, like Zola and Wedding Wire, make it much easier if you are using their own registry platforms. These registries let you include gifts from a variety of stores like Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Amazon, but instead of your guests shopping individually at each store, you would have one universal registry, bringing all your picks from various stores on one page for the buyer. If you do register for gifts at a few places separately, you can still simply add links to each of your registries on your wedding website.

Where to List Wedding Websites

Once you have the wedding website live, how do you get guests to visit it? Be sure to include your wedding website on both you save the date and your wedding invitation, potentially stating the main information they can find on your site, like a gift registry or to RSVP.

If you’re sharing your website on social media, those not invited to your wedding can of course learn about your wedding date and location, so only share if you feel safe sharing this information, or have a private profile.

So, when you’ve run out of space on your wedding invitation, want a platform to share your favorite engagement photos, or want to share your favorite spots in the town of your wedding for your guests, a wedding website is a great solution!
