Instead of juggling 100 extra texts and emails, share all those logistics and let guests shop your gift registry and RSVP on one beautiful, free website. Guests can refer to it anytime leading up to (and even on) your wedding day. Plus, make updates to your custom wedding website anytime there’s a change in plans.

What should be on our wedding website?
Consider all the wedding details guests may text or call you to ask about, like directions, accomodations, dress code, and more. Chances are you won’t be able to fit everything on your save the date or wedding invitation. A custom wedding website lets you include everything your guest list may need to prepare for your wedding day. With Zola’s free wedding website builder, you can customize your website with all this info in minutes, plus add fun photos, share your registry, and let guests RSVP online. Ultimately, what you include on your wedding website is up to you and how personalized you want it to be. It’s best practice, however, to include the weekend’s schedule of events (with the location, date, and time of each one), the suggested attire, and a list of things to do and places to eat around town for visiting guests. You can also include personal “love stories” about you as a couple (like how you met or got engaged), RSVP information (whether you’re looking for an online RSVP form or mailed card), and fun photos of you two. Don’t forget travel and transportation info (like shuttle schedules, directions to the wedding venue, reserved hotel blocks, and parking), FAQs, a wedding hashtag, and anything else your guests need to do before or on the wedding date.
