When I got married, creating a wedsite where you could share all your important wedding info with your guests was practically unheard of. However these days, having one is almost as common as wearing a white dress and saying “I do”! And with amazing programs like Squarespace now available, its hardly surprising. It is now easier than ever to share your wedding details with your guests.
The great thing about Squarespace is that it’s super easy to set up and use, even for the most technically challenged amongst us. Today I wanted to share five simple tips which will help you make your own wedsite the very best it can be.
Set up a custom domain name
Every Squarespace annual subscription (which costs just $8 a month) includes a FREE custom domain name. You don’t even have to worry about going through a complicated registration process either, they’ll handle it all for you. Once you have your URL, all you have to do is include it somewhere on your (much simpler!) paper invites, which will direct your guests to your site in order to find out all the details about the wedding.
Make it easy to navigate
Remember, not everyone is going to be super technically savvy, so it’s important that your site is easy to navigate. Make sure each category is clearly labelled so that even your grandma could find what she needs to know!
Squarespace make this possible with their clean, crisp and modern templates. Simply choose the one you want and go! All the most important aspects will be easy to find as soon as you land on your homepage.
Squarespace is perfect for creative types who love beautiful design but are a bit dense when it comes to anything technical. And, just like how traditional paper invites and supposed to ‘set the tone of your day’ your wedsite should too!
All you need to do is choose the template you like (they even have an entire series that are just for weddings), then you can personalise it with your own photos, colours and fonts that fit your wedding theme.
You can even use one of their gallery functions to create an album of your relationship so far, your bridal party, your engagement photos and your wedding pictures after the event!
ALSO, every template is responsive, which means your site will look just as good whether your guests are scrolling through on their phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer!
