creating your own wedding website
We are living in the age of the internet so take advantage and create a website for your wedding to keep guests in the know. You can share details about your wedding day, travel tips, photos, stories of how you met and became engaged, introductions of your wedding party, post registries and write a blog throughout your engagement. A website can also highlight Seattle and all there is to explore in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle is more and more becoming a destination for out of town couples so help your guests make the most of their visit. Include your website URL on your save-the-date invitation to help spread the word.
I love Nearlyweds, a savvy site that allows couples to create their own personalized websites that is simple to manage. They have a fun selection of templates to choose including designs from Seattle based invitation company Izzy Girl. Izzy Girl, owned by design extraordinaire Janet Maples, also offers custom wedding invitations and stationary to match your Nearlyweds site (see below example).
Whichever resource you use to create a website it is a great way to stay connected with your guests and I encourage you to give it a try.
