Here's Why You Need a Wedding Website (and what to include)

Along with all of the other questions that come with wedding planning, you might be asking yourself if you need a wedding website. 


Like an invitation, a wedding website acts as a point of reference for your guests, and can be especially helpful for out-of-town friends and family. And actually, it works out well for you and your fiance too because it's another way for guests to get the information they need, which means you're less likely to get tons of phone calls and questions. 

Need more reasons to create a wedding website? 

It's Green! Instead of sending out a book's worth of paper to your nearest and dearest, take all that info, including the RSVP, and include it on your website. Not only will you save a few trees, you'll make it easy for guests to look up the info they need and RSVP all in one spot. 

It's Creative! When you include things like your love story, engagement photos, and details about you and your fiance, it adds a personal touch and expresses who you are as a couple. With a wedding website, you also get to choose your layout and colors, which makes it a unique and fun resource for guests. 

It's Easy! Places like Minted make creating a wedding website easy peasy lemon squeezy, which is great considering you have a million other things to do. Minted offers free layouts (which you can customize), matching invitations, maps and directions, a photo gallery, multiple event RSVPs, and much more. 

Now let's talk logistics. First and foremost, make it easy for guests to navigate. Let's face it, people are lazy and if a task takes even a little bit of effort, they're probably not going to do it. Or they'll at least put it off until the last bullet-sweating minute. Put all of the info in an easy-to-identify place and write it in a clear manner. Make sure your RSVP is easy to see and free of confusion. The easier it is for your guests, the less phone calls you'll have to make. 

Here are the essential details to include on your wedding website.

  • RSVP
  • Ceremony info: name, address, date, time, directions
  • Venue info: name, address, date, time directions
  • Maps to accommodations and venues
  • Hotel recommendations: name, address, contact info, distance from venue
