Some of y’all know that John and I went the custom route with our wedding website, creating it from the ground-up in Blogger. It worked well for us, but it took MANY hours — hours that I would have been happy to have spent doing other things while in the thick of wedding planning. Had I known about Virb, I likely would have gone with one of their customizable templates — heavens, they’re just that beautiful!!

They’re clean, they’re modern, and they use the most gorgeous fonts. Such a beautiful backdrop to display engagement and wedding photos! Brides on the go (which is all of y’all, I’m guessing), will be happy to know that Virb’s sites are also mobile-friendly, and look great on any screen size. And, unlike my Blogger hack, there’s absolutely no code or HTML required, so you’ll be set up and ready to go faster than butter melting on a biscuit.

Virb also allows you to add your own custom domain name — I’d recommend something cheesy involving a mash-up of your and your beloved’s name — and offers optional password protection for your entire site or just specific pages. Best of all, they offer a 10-day risk-free trial to test things out before you commit!

Curious? This sweet couple gave us permission to share their site so that y’all could get a feel for the usability and design.

I love to think of a wedding website as one of the first ways you can show Southern hospitality to your guests — easing their travel plans, answering their questions, and making them feel welcome at your celebration. Getting it right is so important, and Virb accomplishes that with ease! Ready to try? Virb is offering 50% off your first three months with code SWMAG3. Hooray!

What did y’all include on your wedding website? Aside from the usual, we included a tab for “attire” and “things to do.” We also included photos from our engagement party!

    Thanks for this great feature on Virb!

    My favorite page to see on a wedding site is a “how we met” page, especially when it has the perspective of the couple separately. It’s always so fun to read, even if you already know the story!

    Mercy me! I definitely wish I had used something like this when we got married. Our short engagement made a ‘from scratch’ website darn near impossible.
