Save Money On Your Wedding Save-the-Dates!
A popular trend these days is for engaged couples to create a wedding website. It is a really great way to share the story of how you met, or how your fiancé proposed. You can add pictures or videos, or give your guests some background information on your lives such as where you grew up and/or where you currently work.
Another popular trend these days is to send your guests a save-the-date, as soon as you finalize your wedding date. So, why not have your wedding website serve two purposes?
Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on save-the-date postcards or magnets, envelopes and postage, use your wedding website as your save-the-date. Almost everyone today has an email address. All you have to do is email your guests the link to your personalized site, which can include all of the necessary wedding details such as the date, location of your ceremony and/or reception, and hotel accommodations. The further that you get into your wedding planning, the more details that you can add such as directions, transportation options, suggested attire and even registry information.
You can make your site as creative as you would like. Some engaged couples include polls and quizzes to see how well their family and friends know them. Other couples include fun facts about their wedding party.
If you receive a good response from your guests, regarding the site, then you can even use the site as an inexpensive alternative to your wedding invitations, track your RSVP’s, and share your honeymoon experience and your favorite shots from your photographer.
The best part about this is that it is totally free! To get started, check out this cool site that I found: www.ewedding.com. You will find everything that you need to create a free fully-featured wedding website. This particular site allows you to choose from numerous different pages, and customize the functionality with themes, colors, music and more.
Not only is this fun for both the engaged couple to create and for your guests to read, but it also serves as a great tool for those planning a wedding on a budget and/or those just looking to save some money.
