Nowadays you shop online, you make friends online and some of us even find love online! According to research* Britons spend 1 of every 12 waking minutes or 43 hours a month online. So if most people you know have an email account and are checking their computers, smartphones or tablets as often as it seems, it kind of makes sense to create your own wedding website. Need more persuading? We’ll let Zankyou take it from here…
It makes life easier
A wedding website is probably the best platform for bringing your guests together in one virtual place. Set it up and then post as much information as you want. It’ll make planning your event much easier, especially if you can set up alerts to notify people of any changes or news on the site.
At Zankyou, you can get a wedding website of your very own for free. You set it up with your email address and a password and then just fill it with all the essential information about your big day. Include as much or as little information as you like – ideal for busy brides on the go.
You can make it personal
Many suppliers let you personalise the page with your wedding colour scheme, add photos and even add a forum for your guests to chat on, making the page a nice taster for your big day. You can start building excitement early on.
Check out the supplier’s approach to privacy and make sure you choose a service that provides password-protected access to the site. That way, only those with the password will be able to view your information.
Manage your guest list
While the website provides information, at Zankyou, you can also set up your virtual wedding gift list, send out invitations and get RSVPs sent directly to the site and then set up your table plan online. This keeps all your essential wedding information in one handy place without lots of pieces of paper floating around in a file.
It saves on phonecalls
If you add the site’s address to your invitations, your guests should hopefully spend a little of their monthly time online actually checking it, therefore saving on phone calls to you or your mum asking for details about the big day.
Easily add more info
You can add things to your wedding website that will help your guests, like directions to your venue and nearby hotels and B&Bs. And if you want to be extra helpful, add a wedding countdown clock and weather forecast for the big day so guests can plan their outfits!
Shout about your love
Having your own wedding website is just another chance for you to celebrate your love. Even before the big day, you’re busy getting excited about your wedding. By setting up a wedding website, you’re bringing your guests in on the fun even before they get to the ceremony!
