Creating a wedding website or social media page is one of the most important things for most couples when planning a wedding.

This is because guests use these platforms to get useful information such as directions to the wedding venue and reception, gift information, and preferred attire, among others.

Advancements in technology and easy access to website-building tools have seen a growing number of couples building websites in the last couple of years. Others create social media pages, while a few go for both.

However, you need to make sure that your wedding website or social media page stands out.

Here are a few tips for you to follow for a gorgeous wedding website or social media page;

Keep Everything Simple

If you do not feel like sharing certain information, then there is no need for you to share it. Even though things such as how you met your partner, the story of your life, and what makes your relationship fun might be interesting, you do not have to share them.

If you are planning a destination wedding, for example, there is a lot of information that you might need to share instead of your details. Your guests will need to know about directions, travel, lodging, and many other things to streamline their travel.

Your wedding website or social media page should be simple and streamlined for your guests to get all the information that they need. However, anything that could not fit on your wedding invitation card can go to the website or social media page.

Use a Stunning Pink Background

Even though your wedding day is going to be one of the most memorable days of your life, someone once said that weddings belong to ladies. They have a bigger say throughout the planning process and if given a chance, everything would go their way.

This does not exclude wedding websites or social media pages. When creating yours, you need to ensure that you have used amazing and beautiful backgrounds to make them stand out. You can find different backgrounds online, but be careful with the ones you choose.

You can, for instance, use these astonishing pink backgrounds on your wedding website. These backgrounds can be used on the entire website, not just photos. This way, you will make your website stand out from the rest.

Make Good Use of Photography

Even though this might seem obvious for your wedding website and social media pages, most people do not know how to make good use of photography. To get started, ensure that you are using clear, striking, and professionally taken photographs.

In addition, avoid using stock photos. A bigger percentage of photos on your wedding website and social media page should be your photos. If you have engagement photos, you can share them on these platforms.

You can also take photos of your wedding venue or city and share them. These should be beautiful photographs showing your wedding guests that apart from enjoying the wedding, they will also enjoy your wedding venue. You can use online photo editing tools to make your photos more stunning.

Use Templates For Your Wedding Website

You do not have to spend a lot of time and resources building your wedding website from scratch. Thanks to technological advancements and the many content management systems we have today, you can get stunning website templates online.

Some of these templates are free while others are not. You can find many of them online. However, you need to be careful when choosing a wedding website template. Ensure that you have addressed privacy concerns and chosen a template that matches your requirements.

Check Your Information Hierarchy

Most people do not know that the information hierarchy on their wedding websites and social media pages is very important. But what does this mean? Well, the most important information should come first.

For instance, ensure that important information is at the top of the first page of your wedding website. It should also be clear and bold. If you have created a social media page, you can pin the most important information at the top of the page.

Information such as your wedding date, venue, preferred dressing style, and gift ideas are important in every wedding. This information needs to be clear, at the top, and in bold. You can then add the rest of the wedding information depending on its importance.

A wedding website or a social media page can attract or chase people away from your wedding. However, you will create a gorgeous wedding website and social media page by following the tips discussed above.
