Forget the hashtag, build your own site!
August 27, 2015
If you thought that creating a hashtag for the story of your nuptials was getting creative, then think again! Imagine creating an entire online hub for your wedding? Well you wouldn’t be the first. The number of websites dedicated to individual weddings are on the rise, and what started as a great way to centralise some housekeeping information for guests via a simple landing page are fast becoming stunning and elaborate websites to cover pre, during and post your wedding.
Forget Facebook, Imagine displaying your wedding images via an engaging slide show on your own website? Your guests, family and friends all heading to joshloveskylie.com or the like and digitally RSVP and check out your online store gift registry, or even link Pinterest mood boards for your wedding dress code?
Believe it or not, you don’t need to be a web developer to build your own site, and you can get away buying a domain, hosting and template for under $100.
Check out Wix.com or Square Space for options, although you will find a bunch of different website builders who can offer you everything from a single landing page to a vivid and complex multi paged site that will house your memories so that you can visit them from anywhere with an internet connection via the click of a button.
If you’re going to create a hashtag for your wedding, why not embed the feed into your brand new wedding website?
