A wedding website is a fantastic tool to streamline your wedding planning process, keep your guests informed, and add a personal touch to your big day. In this blog, we'll explore the essential elements to include on your wedding website to ensure it's not only informative but also a reflection of your love story.

Love Story and Photos

Start your wedding website by sharing your love story. How did you meet? What's your journey together been like? Add a selection of your favourite photos together to give your guests a glimpse into your relationship. This personal touch sets the tone for your wedding website.


Wedding Details

Include the fundamental wedding details:

  • Date, time, and location of the ceremony and reception.

  • Venue addresses with maps or links to map apps for easy navigation.

  • Dress code or theme if applicable.


RSVP Functionality

Make it easy for your guests to RSVP online. Create a form where they can input their names and the number of attendees. This feature helps you keep track of your guest list and dietary requirements too.


Accommodation and Travel Information

If you have guests traveling from out of town, provide information about nearby hotels, transportation options, and any special rates you've negotiated. Plus include details on airport transfers if necessary.


Gift List

If you've created a gift list, ensure to include a link to it on your wedding website. Include information about where the registry is, and if you're requesting specific gifts etc. Alternatively if you are hoping for monetary gifts, why not set up a PayPal account and link to it.

Wedding Party

Introduce your Bridal party and Groomsmen on the website. Share their names, photos, and a brief bio about each person. This helps guests get to know your closest friends and family members and can be a fun addition!


Order of the Day

Outline how the day is going to run so people know when and where they need to be throughout the day – this is key if guests are travelling from afar and/or if they have children attending so they can plan on keeping them entertained throughout the day (and don’t miss any key parts!)


FAQ Section

Consider creating a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to address common queries. Include information about parking, attire, and anything else your guests might ask.


Photo and Video Galleries

Share engagement photos and any videos you've created, like save-the-date videos. After the wedding, you can also upload professional photos and videos for guests to relive the special moments.


Guestbook and Comments

On your wedding day you could have QR code signs dotted around to give your guests a platform to leave well-wishes, advice, or comments. This interactive feature is gaining popularity as it eliminates the need for a traditional guest book (and if anyone forgets, they can simply take a QR ‘coaster’ home with them to remind them!)


Contact Information

Include your contact information so guests can reach out with any last-minute concerns or questions.


Creating a wedding website is not only a practical way to streamline your wedding planning but also a wonderful opportunity to share your love story with friends and family. By including these essential elements, your wedding website will serve as an informative hub that adds a personal touch to your wedding preparations. Make it a reflection of your unique journey together and let it set the tone for your special day.
