Creating a wedding website is something most people do these days. It’s a great way to keep all your wedding details in order for your guests and you can even do cool things like send reminders about RSVPs. But what are some of the most important things you need to include on your website? Read below for our suggestions!
1. What time should I arrive to the ceremony?
This one is obviously super important! You typically want your guests to start arriving 30 minutes before your ceremony begins. So if your ceremony starts at 5pm, put a 4:30pm arrival.
2. What is the dress code?
If you have a specific vision in mind for your guest’s attire, make sure you let them know! It could be semi-formal, casual or even something more specific like having your guests wear a certain color.
3. Where is the venue located?
Always make sure you include directions to your venue. Even though most likely your guests could Google the venue and get the address/directions on their own, this eliminates that step for them and also allows you to include parking information and any special instructions if your venue can be a little tricky to get to.
4. Are kids welcome?
This is something you will need to discuss with your partner and decide together. Whatever the case, be sure to include it in your FAQs. Check out our blog on how to have a kid free wedding for more advice on this!
5. Where do you recommend out of town guests stay?
This is an important one to add, especially if you have a lot of out of town guests. Figure out a couple hotels closest to your venue and reserve some room blocks for your quests. Be sure to let them know if there is a deadline on when to book their room! It would also be nice to include a few fun things they can do while in town as well. Here are some ideas for the Austin Area!
6. When does the reception end?
People like to know the end time of events they are attending. It can help them plan for transportation and plans afterwards! Some couples might want to include the basic timeline of their wedding day on their website, but at the very least be sure to include the end time along with the arrival time mentioned above.
7. Will you have food options for people with allergies or dietary restrictions?
This is something you and your fiancé will decide with your caterer. Ask people to let you know if they have any special food accommodations that need to be made so you can be sure they have a meal they can enjoy at your wedding.
*You can include information about your wedding registry in your FAQs as well but there is usually a separate tab specifically for this on most wedding websites!
