Lovein.site gives couples the wedding website that they actually want to share with their friends, without sacrificing any functionality! It is now simpler than ever to share your wedding details with your guests! In today's post, I wanted to share five simple tips to help you make your own wedsite the very best it can be.
Hello Kiss My Tulle Readers! My name is Sherri, and I’m the creator of Lovein.site, when I got married, creating a wedding website (or, “wedsite”) where I could share all my important wedding info with invited guests was practically unheard of. However, these days, having a wedsite is nearly as common as wearing a white dress and saying “I do”! As a result, there have been many services provided to get a site but after a quick review its obvious these aren’t that nice to look at, and certainly not something that I would want my guest to see as their first impression of my wedding.
That’s why I created a Lovein.site to give couples the wedding website that they actually want to share with their friends, without sacrificing any functionality! It is now simpler than ever to share your wedding details with your guests! In today's post, I wanted to share five simple tips to help you make your own wedsite the very best it can be.
SET UP A CUSTOM DOMAIN NAME
What is a custom domain? a custom domain looks like www.ericandhannah2016.com versus a non-custom domain (or a sub-domain) that would look like www.ericandhannah2016.3rdpartydomain.com, which is much harder to read and takes up more valuable space on invitations. Every Lovein.site annual subscription (which costs just $16 a month) includes your own custom domain name (time to get creative). Don't worry about a complicated registration process either, my team will handle it all for you. Just tell them what you want! Once you have your domain name, just include it on your paper invites, which will direct your guests to your site in order to find out all the details about the wedding.
EASY TO NAVIGATE
Remember, great-aunt Ida isn't technically savvy, so it’s important that your site is easy to navigate. Lovein.site ensures each category is clearly labeled so that even Ida could find the info she needs!
Your wedding website sets the tone of your day just as traditional paper invites would. Lovein.site is perfect for creative types who love beautiful design but are unskilled at building websites. (I would assume that could account for quite a few of us) all you need to do is take you time, fill out the form they provide and personalize it with your own photos that fit your wedding theme.
Things you’ll need:
1) A folder on your desktop with all the pictures you want on your wedding website, then when you’re filling out the form to build your site, you will have them ready to go! Up load images to use in your header (see Image 1) to create a slideshow of you and your fiancé acting like you! Have fun with it!
2) Prepare at least 3 time line events that should include, The day you first met, The very first date, The proposal. These help your guest to understand what this wedding means to you on a more personal level, making the day that much more special for everyone.
Also, every site is responsive, which means your site will look just as good whether your guests are scrolling through on their phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.
KEEP EVERYTHING IN ONE PLACE
No longer do you need to fork out for pricey paper invites with 50 pages of inserts with all your wedding information on them. Your wedding website has all the info your guests need to know – and more!
Lovein.site pages have personalized and useful features you will actually use because they were created with brides and grooms in mind. Add your date, the venue, transport options and accommodations, connect your gift registry from anywhere else on the web and you can even include an on-page honeymoon fund to pay for your dream vacation! Nowhere else can you combine your wedsite and honeymoon fund in a single site!
MAKE THE RSVPS PAINLESS
While keeping track of RSVPs can be a total pain Lovein.site make the process as stress-free as possible. Using a simple form, your friends and family rsvp directly through your site. Their info will then automatically drop into a google spreadsheet for you! Amazing.
Bonus tip: include an address field when people RSVP, and when it comes to sending thank-you cards, all the addresses you need will be conventionally saved in your inbox already! YOU’RE WELCOME. PLEASE, HOLD YOUR APPLAUSE UNTIL THE END…
Lovein.site is the perfect tool for brides and grooms wanting a simple to use, easy to implement, and utterly beautiful wedding website.
Congratulations on your engagement and good luck on your wedding!
