What happens if you have friends and family members living on the other side of the globe and not able to attend your upcoming wedding? What if you have disabled relatives that would love to share in your special day but because of limitations, they cannot. If you find that you have these obstacles or others that are similar, the perfect solution is to create a wedding website where videos, photographs, messages, and more can be downloaded and shared.
The great thing is that creating a wedding website is not difficult or expensive. If you want something over the top, you could hire a professional website designer to create something for you but if you want something that is simple, easy to navigate, and inexpensive, then you can choose to create a website based on templates. These websites serve a number of benefits in that you can share the wedding after the fact as well as provide guests with valuable information before the start of the wedding.
For instance, if you need to provide special instructions and maps, rather then spending the extra money on postage to include the information with the invitations, you can simply post them on the internet. In fact, you can also provide a link to other websites where the guests can enter their starting address along with the address of the church or reception and in a matter of seconds, perfect driving instructions will be provided. You can even post the actual invitation on the website along with a fill in form for RSVPs.
The nice thing about setting up a wedding website is that there are hundreds of hosting companies with many different templates from which to choose. Once you have decided on the background and colors, the service will walk you through the process of setting up each page within the site. Typically, you can choose the size and style of font, the location of text, and the exact information you want to get and send. Best of all, the hosting company will also provide you with customer service numbers just in case you get stuck or have questions.
Considering that the average cost of a wedding website is just $10 per month, everyone can afford to invest. Once the wedding and reception are over, you can continue the website sharing photographs and information about the honeymoon. Then, the website can become a chronicle of married life, leading right into the future of buying your first home, and having children, taking vacations, and so on. In other words, the website that began strictly for your wedding can become a hub for the family to start sharing life. You can even share favorite family recipes, funny stories, and the entire family and friends can upload pictures of their own adventures.
Additionally, as your wedding website takes on new form, you can typically choose a different background or template to keep up with the ever-changing site. This way, the actual look and feel of the website evolves right along with life.
