“Your website is beautiful, lively, full of energy and upbeat. I can only imagine that your marriage will be the same.” – Sulean Carruthers

Free services offered by TheKnot.com and Weddingwire.com are great if your main goal is to simply communicate logistical information. However, for the cost of dinner for two, you can wow your guests with a dynamic WedMeDo site loaded with flash effects and cool templates and no experience with HTML or graphic design is required.
Once you choose a design, incorporate these tips and experience your own wedding website “WOW” moments!
Tell your love story, but do so in 500 words or less. We live in a world where the most impactful news is consumed in sound bites and 140 character increments, so your “story of us”, while unique and special, must be succinct.
Showcase compelling imagery. Great photographs are essential to creating wed site magic. We featured our engagement session photos taken by Melissa Prosser Photography since it’s ideal to utilize professional pictures. But if that’s not in your budget, highlight the best photos you have of yourselves that are clear, have great lighting and show the depth of your emotions. Better still, if you have it, include the video footage from your engagement.
Add great music. Songs move us in ways that even words and images cannot. Select songs with lyrics that reflect certain elements of your love or allude to what guests will experience on your wedding day.
Have you seen a wedding website that made you say WOW? If so, tell us about it and share your top tips.
