Top Things For Your Wedding Website
Your wedding website can be a powerful tool to share information with your guests and to gather information from them as well!
Here is a simple wedding website that I designed in Wix, I love that a website builder like Wix allows much more customization than other wedding site options, this one even has a custom watercolor of the venue as the theme!
More FAQ Ideas Below:
Should I bring a gift to the wedding?
I didn't want our guests bringing gifts to our wedding because I didn't want to have to take them home that night and so with this question I asked that they only bring cards to the wedding.
Can I use my phone during the ceremony to take video/photos?
This is where I politely asked people to refrain from using their phones during the wedding. Since I had hired professionals to capture the wedding I really didn't want people's hands/phones in all my pretty pictures!
Who should I reach out to with questions on the day of the wedding?
It is useful to let people know who will be able to help them on the wedding day, maybe your wedding planner or the maid of honor. These people would be great help so the bride and groom aren't getting logistics questions on the wedding day from guests.
What are some things to do in the area?
Adding restaurants, outdoor activities, and shopping is a great thing to add especially if you are having a destination wedding!
What time should I arrive?
We recommend that you arrive 45 minutes before the start of the ceremony, to make sure everyone is on time and we can get the party started as scheduled!
When is the RSVP deadline?
Please RSVP by X date to plan to celebrate with us!
What should I wear to the wedding?
This is a great place to be specific with what your guests should wear. If heels would be hard in the area you can specify it. If it tends to get very cold at night maybe suggest wearing a maxi dress or bringing a jacket. "We recommend a dress, smart trousers or a skirt for women and suit paints with a dress shirt for men."
Is the wedding indoors or outdoors?
Letting them know the settings will allow them to dress appropriately.
Will Food and Drink be served at the reception?
Letting your guests know what type of food you will be serving (Ex: Italian) and if it is heavy appetizers of a full meal will help them plan ahead if they (or their kiddos) are picky.
How do I travel to the wedding location?
This is a great place to suggest hotels, airports, and or driving times.
When is the couple going to be in the wedding location?
This was helpful since we had a destination wedding so it let our guests know how long we would be in the town.
What hotels are most convenient?
I used this question to tell people which hotel the shuttle would pick up and drop off from.
What will the weather be like?
Since Colorado in June has varying weather I wanted people to know that they should always have a jacket at night because it will always get cold at night but during the day they would still need sunscreen.
How to combat Altitude Sickness?
This one probably only applies if you are getting married in the mountains. Many of our guests had not been to a high altitude location before so I wanted to make sure they knew what to expect. "When going up to these heights you can experience systems like lethargy and headaches due to less oxygen in the air. To combat altitude sickness the best thing that you can do is drink a lot of water, eat salty foods (they help retain water), drink gatorade, and try to stay active! Remember that drinking at high elevation is different as well, you will most likely feel the effects much sooner than normal!"
