Weddings! Don't we all just love a wedding? Whether you're the one planning your big day, or you are the family and friends looking forward to a good knees up, wedding's are a huge industry. Stereotypically renowned to come with stress, a good family argument and constant rearranging of the seating plan, it's been known to be the type of event that can put pressure on the bride and groom to be.

But planning a wedding doesn't have to be stressful! In the world of websites, there is a perfect solution when it comes to making sure your guests know what the state of play is, the location, details about transport,hotels and more.

Client Care Manager, David Swan, is getting married today. Yes, he is probably with his best men right now gearing up for one of the biggest days of his life! We are guessing a shot of vodka or whiskey might be on the agenda to calm those nerves.

When it came to organising the wedding, for David (and his soon to be wife Liddy) a website was a perfect solution to a more streamlined and easy to organise wedding.

The website features an image of the location of the wedding, as well as the all important date and wedding gift list as a call to action in the top right hand corner.

The website is only one page, meaning that you can click on each of the menu items and be directed down the page to the relevant section. 

The website takes you through a number of panelled sections including a back story about the couple and how they met, venue information with a handy map and directions for different transport types, and an RSVP form for once people have received their invitation. The additional panels include song requests, accommodation information, the itinerary for the day, information for people invited to the evening reception and finally a who's who panel outlining the important people of the day and their roles.

So how has the website helped? For one, all RSVP's can be managed through The Toolkit, our content management system. Forget having to get in touch or send a letter back saying whether you are going to make it or not, you can simply reply on the website itself.

Nearly any question that the guests may have can be answered by looking at the website. What time does the ceremony start? How did Dave and Liddy meet? Who is the best man and when does he make his speech?

And then, when all is said and done, and the wedding day is over, the website can be used to show case the photos from the day and a thank you message to family, friends and guests. No need for thank you letters!

Are you getting married? Do you think a website like this would help you? Why not get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.

We look forward to hearing from you.

And congratulations to the newly-weds, Mr and Mrs Swan!
