engaged wedding websites

So, you recently got engaged? Congrats!!

And welcome to Shift Events – a boutique online wedding websites and invitation studio, serving couples around the globe, bridging the gap between traditional and modern. In an age where information is available at our fingertips through the World Wide Web and Social Media, it makes sense that today’s modern couple would look for a traditional wedding with a fresh spin.  This has resulted in many couples opting to supplement, or in some cases completely replace, the traditional wedding invitations with a wedding website and electronic invitations. If it sounds like we’re describing the two of you, we’re pretty sure you’ve come to the right place!

You want your wedding day to be memorable and unique, and we would love to be part of the team that helps to make that happen.

Why All Engaged Couples Need Personal Wedding Websites

Ringgg…ringggg, “What are the directions to the church?” Ringgg… ringgg, “When is the bridal shower?” Ring Ring “Did you get our RSVP?” Dealing with the stress and time consumption of planning a wedding is hard enough, having 1000 phone calls per week can just take the fun out of it altogether. You need a personal wedding site. Think of it as your own personal assistant. Wedding websites allow you, as a couple, to share all the details of your wedding with friends and family no matter where they live and Shift Events can do it all for you!

One important feature of wedding websites is of course photos. Remember, the friends and family of your fiancé may hardly know who you are, they will love seeing photos of you both. You can post photos from when you were little right up to your engagement photos. Other great features you can make use of are:

Top Wedding Websites Features

Your Story

The story of your journey that has led up to you walking down the aisle is one that you hold close to your heart, but not everyone will have been there for each of the steps that you have taken. Why not take the opportunity offered by your wedding website to bring your guests up to speed. Where you grew up, how you met, the proposal, as well as a few quirky things that no one else knows are a few of the suggestions that they make to the couples going the website route.

Out Of Town Guests

Make your out of town guest’s lives easier by providing them with possible accommodation options in the area. If guests are planning on an extended stay, why not provide them with a few local options for meals or other outings, ensuring that their trip is even more enjoyable.

Photo Album

Easily collect and share photos from Facebook, Instagram or your computer. Add your wedding hashtag to start collecting memories from social media right away. Post photos from your childhood, your engagement shoot and, after the wedding let your guests view your professional wedding photos.

Wedding Countdown

Shift Events knows you have your own personal wedding countdown running in your head, but it will build excitement if you have it on your website for everyone to see.

Bridal Party Info

Another great idea is to introduce your bridal party. A photograph along with their names and a short bio will have your guests chatting to them on the day like old friends.

Background Music

Impress your friends and family with a professional looking website complete with background music.

Blog & RSVP

Do you fancy yourself as a modern day Shakespeare? Have you considered writing a blog, but you have not found a topic that truly inspires you. Well now, you can share your wedding planning and other exciting news during the run up to your special day with your guests through your personal wedding website blog.

Managing the RSVP process can be a headache, however, an RSVP management tool allows you to see at a glance who has replied, whether they are bringing a partner and what their dietary requirements are.

The Big Day

This is the where, when and how. It lists the details of the wedding; any events that have been planned for the lead up to the big day, and provides directions for the events, wedding ceremony and reception.

Registry Details

Provide links directly to your registry. This allows your guests to see all of the places where you have registered on one page. It is the modern, tactful (and hassle-free!) way to share your registry with your guests.

Guestbook

Your guests will love the opportunity to post their best wishes for the two of you on your website. This also gives you the opportunity to share in your guests’ excitement about your big day.

Custom Web Address

This would mean you could use www.yournames.co.za as your website address. With countless possibilities, you can easily come up with a memorable domain name.

Online Invitation

A personalised interactive wedding invitation website designed to share your wedding journey with photos, videos, links to your social media, your own blog, pick a song and much more for you and your guests to enjoy. Affordable, convenient and easy to use.
