Are you getting lots of questions from family and friends about the details of your wedding?
It can be tough keeping everyone updated.
Auntie Janice is regularly calling to find out your progress with the flowers, your Uncle Harry wants to be kept in the loop in case it clashes with his teams match and your bestie Clare wants to know what she can buy you as a gift.
All of this whilst you're still working out the finer details yourself!
Questions about the accommodation, the parking and even a few random ones like “does the church allow confetti?” or “is there a cattery close by?”
Lots to convey to so many at different times – but there's no need to panic – there are a variety of wedding website providers out there who can give you the resources to provide all of your guests a single place to go for all the details of the ceremony, the reception, the gift list, the accommodation and the do's and the don'ts - the perfect solution to all those FAWQ's (frequently asked wedding questions).
A Wedding Website is the best way to set the tone for your big day, from streamlining your planning process to tracking your RSVP’s.
