What did we do without websites to give our guests all the data for the wedding? Today we share Our Top Tips for a superb Destination Wedding Website.

1.PRIMARILY FUNCTIONAL

Your wedding website is first and foremost, functional. It is there to convey information to your guests, and thus it should be easy to read, easy to navigate, and easy to find.

2.TELL A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELVES

Include some information on how you both met & of course all about the proposal. As while some people will know lots about you many may only know snippets of the “Love Story”.The little personal history will also help your guests prepare themselves for the wedding particularly when they are mingling with other guests during your wedding weekend.

3.WEBSITE SHOULD BE INFORMATIVE

Provide your guests with all the information they need to attend your wedding including itinerary,attire,weather,travel and transportation details. Giving them lots of time to get their wardrobe ready and plan a vacation around your wedding .

4.LET GUESTS KNOW THE UNEXPECTED

For elements of your destination wedding that need more explanation particularly items which could be unique to Ireland such as weather/need for wrap,heel blocks for shoes if ceremony outdoors on grass and most hire cars are not automatic .

If you are having a cash bar which is not the norm for many American weddings this could be the location to advise just so guests do not find themselves turning up with no money.

5.RSVP

While tradition & etiquette stipulates that guests will RSVP by mail many wedding couples now host the RSVPs on their wedding website. In addition you may choose to include the  “RSVP” card with the invitation which can be mailed back to you ideal for those guests who like to keep with tradition.

6.LOGISTICS

It is a great tool to provide all of the logistics for your destination wedding celebration including :

  • Itinerary
  • How to get to the Ceremony
  • Dresscode
  • Fun & interesting things to do in the region
  • Best not to include events which are exclusive to family /wedding party on the site

7.THE WEDDING PARTY

It is probably not that necessary to dedicate a page on the site to the wedding party,it will help avoid excluding the other guests some of whom may have thought they were side stepped ! Honour the wedding party on the wedding day .

8.THE REGISTRY

While formal etiquette says that you do not highlight your registry on a website or with the invitations it really is a big help to your guests to know what gift to buy you. Quite often the Registry is the busiest page on the wedding website.
