Everyone seems to be doing it and initially both my fiancé and I dismissed the phenomenon of the wedding website as a fad. But for other friends wedding I have found myself using their wedding websites to find the location of the wedding, accommodation recommendation and the link to the gift list. It is a handy place to store lots of important information for the wedding so we decided to create a simple site for ourselves.
There are many free wedding website sites with ready made templates which make it easy to set up a site without too much fiddling.
We wanted to make our website a little more personal and so a friend had recommended iWeb to me. Since neither my fiancé and I are technical people I was a bit worried that it would be too tricky and too much effort to get to grips with designing a website. But though I don’t want to sound like an Apple representative, with iWeb it is so easy! It is literally a case of experimenting for a bit and then you just load a template and drag photos onto the page, type your info, choose your font etc. How much you manipulate and personalise the website is up to you.
This is a little preview of part of our website – a work in progress.
There is a fantastic step by step guide on how to create a wedding website using iWeb by Mrs. Cupcake on Wedding Bee.
Also here is how one bride created her own website after reading the how-to on Wedding Bee.
There are some great example of wedding websites out there to give you ideas for your own site
