8 Steps to a Great Wedding Website for a Smart Wedding in 2019
It’s finally close enough to your big day to start sending out invites, reminders, and, of course, your wedding wishlist! With all the wedding planning information being dispersed, it’s easy to overlook small details or just forget to send it to someone (even if they’re important to you). Avoid alienating your friends and family by keeping things very simple – consolidate all your information in one place – your wedding website!
A growing trend in India, a wedding website is a perfect way to keep people informed of the numerous events and functions that go into the making of a big fat desi wedding. At Wedding Wishlist, we love the concept and have our own version – and the best part? You can share your website and wishlist together. Convenient, right?

On the ‘Planning’ page, you can share important information that your guests might find useful, such as the hotels you’re planning to reserve rooms at, the transportation that has been arranged for them, etc. You can even brief them on things they can do in the city when they have some free time.
The third option is the ‘Wishlist’ page, which is linked to your wedding wish list. This way you can share your registry along with your wedding website. Finally, you can use the ‘RSVP’ page to gauge the number of guests to expect at each event. Simply list out the functions you’re planning and guests can RSVP to the events individually.
