Now that you've built your amazing wedding website, you are ready to publish it. But before you do, you should know what to include on the site. No worries. We've got you covered. That's why we came up with What Should Be Included on Your Wedding Website: A Checklist for Chicago Brides.
1. Important Details
It's no secret that the details of your wedding should be included on your wedding website. That's why we've listed this first on our list of What Should Be Included on Your Wedding Website: A Checklist for Chicago Brides. These details should include the names of the bride and groom, the location of the wedding ceremony as well as the reception location (if different), and also the date and time of the wedding. This information should be easy to find on your wedding website and we even recommend putting it on the front page of your site.
2. Schedule of Events
If you plan on hosting a rehearsal dinner or a brunch the morning after the wedding, be sure to include this on your wedding website also. We suggest creating a timeline so that guests are aware of all the events that are taking place during your wedding weekend. This way none of your guests are left out.
3. Contact Person
If your guests have any questions about your wedding, we recommend having a main contact person that can answer any questions. Usually, this is your wedding planner or a close friend or family member. Providing a contact person for your guests relieves you from constantly answering your phone and allows you time to enjoy your wedding day.
4. Adult Only Announcements
One of the things we also recommend on our What Should Be Included on Your Wedding Website: A Guide for Chicago Brides is an adult-only announcement. The best way to get the word out that you are hosting an adult-only wedding is to put it right on your website and not on your invitations. Your intentions are never to offend anyone so you can say something like this a grown-up affair or address the wedding invitation to who you are inviting only. (Ex. Mr. and Mrs. Ivory).
5. Dress-Code Details
There is no harm in briefly mentioning your dress-code details on your invitations. For example, you can simply say black-tie or casual attire. Use your wedding website to be specific in your dress-code details. If you'd like the ladies to know that it would be best to wear flats or other comfortable shoes because of your outdoor venue, then this is the place to do just that.
6. Transportation and Hotel Accommodations
Your guest will appreciate you taking the time to think about them by blocking hotel rooms at a nearby hotel and providing transportation to and from the wedding and reception. To keep your guests entertained while you're busy with getting your other wedding preparations, it wouldn't hurt to include local restaurants, coffee shops, and other fun things to do.
