Tag: wedding website

One wedding task that has been looming on my to-do list is to create a wedding website. In this day and age, with family members and friends spread out across the country (and the globe!), a wedding website is such an essential tool for brides and grooms. Not only does it give Grandma the chance to read all about your proposal story and check out your engagement pictures, it’s also the perfect place to house important information about accommodations, your registries, and much more. With so many people traveling to weddings (90% of Dave and I’s guests are from out-of-state, for example!), having all of this info in one easily accessible place is invaluable. Considering that an informative website will field lots of phone calls and emails from well-meaning guests with questions, freeing up your time to concentrate on what matter most (preparing for marriage, of course!), we consider it a must!

In our opinion, the best wedding websites are clean, easy to use, informative, and customizable. That’s why we absolutely love WeddingWoo—from the full photo backgrounds, to the content you can edit to fit your needs, to the handy RSVP manager, they’re a wonderful option for a website that is both functional and visually impressive! We also love the fun additional features WeddingWoo offers, like an animated wedding countdown and an integrated Instagram page that displays all of the pictures from your wedding hashtag.

Let’s be honest, y’all, some wedding websites are kind of boring! Much like your save the date and invitation, your website should fit seamlessly with the style of your big day and get guests excited for what’s to come. And what better to represent your wedding than you? An engagement picture that matches the style of your wedding makes a beautiful background, and all of the fonts and colors on WeddingWoo are up to you (no coding knowledge needed!). A few of our favorites are below, but you can also see lots more customer examples in the WeddingWoo gallery.

WeddingWoo is very reasonably priced, which we know is a huge factor when you’re already shelling out hundreds for your wedding. Simply choose between a one-year or a two-year plan—for each, you pay a one-time flat fee that includes all of the features WeddingWoo offers.

We couldn’t be more excited that WeddingWoo has generously offered three Southern Weddings readers free one-year memberships! Here’s how to enter:

    Beautifully designed websites dont show information or pictures, they share stories! And I would love the chance to share my love story.

    Fell in love with the “story” behind this pin. I can just see Diane Lane walking through Tuscany on her way to a wedding in this! You can practically taste the celebratory gelato. :) So gorgeous.

We’ve long been fans of Appy Couple and the many ways they make organizing your wedding easy and stylish. And today, we’re excited to introduce you to their brand new Southern Design Collection!

Not familiar with Appy Couple? You’re in for a treat! Appy Couple is the private, social, and very, very easy way to create and publish your own mobile wedding app and website. A one-time fee gives you the entire suite, with unlimited everything (photo uploads, guests, stories, events) – and app downloads are always free for your guests!

I like that Appy Couple works to make your life easier during wedding planning, a period when “free time” is at a premium. Since your wedding website, RSVPs, registries, and photos can all be in one place with the same beautiful design, you don’t need to spend previous time setting up and managing different products.

When you set up your app, a coordinating wedding website is automatically created at the same time, meaning Appy Couple is beautiful on every device: iPhone, iPad, Android, and web. And, there’s no need to learn coding to work this magic – setting up Appy is easy with a drag and drop interface, no technical skills required. It’s as easy as falling in love :)

Privacy is a snap with Appy Couple – you can update privacy settings and share content and surprises on your schedule. If some events are for more select groups (bachelorette party, bridal shower, welcome dinner), you can easily ensure only invited guests have access to the details.

As a final really fun feature, you can choose from over 300 designs for your wedding app and website — and the designs are really, truly good looking! Don’t see something you love? Appy’s design team can work with you to create a totally custom design.

Oh, a custom suite sounds good? You’re in luck! The kind folks at Appy are offering up the chance to win a free custom Appy Couple design! The winner will work with Appy’s design team to create a completely custom design for her wedding app and website. To enter, visit their design page then pin your favorite design using the hashtag #appycustom.

Ready to get started? Appy Couple is offering a discount to all SW readers! Just enter the promo code APPY10SW at checkout to save 10% off your account.

Thanks, Appy Couple!!

It stinks that at the time you most want to be connecting meaningfully with family + friends (your engagement!), it can sometime seem like all you’re doing instead is chasing people down, repeating information, and sending nagging reminders about tiny details. At Southern Weddings we are ALL about increasing meaningful time and decreasing annoying time, and fans of anything that can help shift that balance. Enter Appy Couple.

Appy Couple is an all-in-one solution. They believe that technology should make life easier, not create more accounts/services for you to manage (hallelujah!), which is why they’ve rolled everything into one platform: your wedding app, website, emails, photo sharing/taking, and even paper invites, if you’d like.

Appy Couple describes what they do as “stylish and magical,” and I really have to agree. When you’re ready to begin, start at and pick from hundreds of couture designs (which you can change as many times as you want!). If you don’t see the perfect design for your wedding, their designers can work with you to make something completely custom!

Next, curate all the details you’d like guests to have at their fingertips, and when you’re ready, allow guests to view all the details through your app and website. Everything will be available in one place: your photos, guest photos, RSVPs, meal preferences, registries, maps and directions, and photo filters and frames.

One of the best things about Appy Couple is that when you build your app, a gorgeous wedding website is created automatically! You’ll look like a creative genius, no technical skills required :)

Good news! The kind folks at Appy Couple have a few sweet treats for y’all. First, they’re giving you lovely ladies a promo code to get the full Appy Couple service for $20 (regular $28), including unlimited guests, RSVPs, and photos for an unlimited time. The code is APPYLOVESW. It will be valid for 48 hours, so hop on it quick!

In addition, they’re giving away two entire custom-designed suites (app + website!). The winners will be featured on their site, and the apps named after them in the Appy store. How fun is that?? To enter, pin one of the images in this post, and then leave a link in the comments to your pin. The winners will be the top two pinners who get the most re-pins on their pins! (I know that’s a lot of “pins” in a row, so let me know if you have any questions!)

Be sure to check out the Appy video, above, and explore all that they do at their website! Happy planning, belles!
