Having a wedding website is one of the easiest, most cost-efficient and most etiquette-friendly ways of sharing news and information with your future wedding guests. From directions on how to reach the location of the wedding to info about the wedding registry, there’s a myriad of things you can put on your wedding website – so this is surely something you should consider having.
What are some of the do’s and don’ts of creating your wedding website? Read on and find out more.
- Be very clear about the dress code, regardless of whether it’s a black tie event or a very casual one. This way, your guests will be able to wear an adequate attire – and not feel underdressed or overdressed in any way.
- Include information about lodging and food in the area, especially if you have out-of-town guests who may not be very familiar with the area. This will make their trip more enjoyable and less stressful.
- Talk about your social media rules. Share your hashtag with your guests and, if you have any special rules about sharing on social media, make sure they are aware of them all.
- Do not choose to receive RSVPs on your website only. Include a traditional mail option too, for guests who may not be Internet-savvy or who simply prefer sending their RSVPs back to you via mail.
- Do not include information about pre-wedding events with a limited guest list (e.g. the bridal shower or the bachelor party). Guests who are not invited to these events may feel that it is rude to share the pre-wedding parties info with them too.
- Do not use acronyms of any kind. Some of the guests may not be as familiar with them (e.g. not everyone understands who the “MOH” is and, even more, most guests will not understand local acronyms or regional expressions).
