Rach and Ryan’s website is our featured WeddingWindow.com website of the week. The couple has done a great job of customizing their wedding website with beautiful photography and colors to compliment their upcoming elegant yet lighthearted summer wedding. Their website is a great source of recognition to their supportive friends and family as well as a way to communicate with their many out-of-town guests. Congratulations Rach and Ryan!
WeddingWindow.com Website Design: “Charmed”
1. How has your website been most helpful?
We included our website address in the save-the-date magnets we sent our guests 5 months prior to our wedding. Because most of our guests are from out of town, our wedding website has been really helpful in letting our guests know of our plans ahead of time. Our website turned out to be so organized and detailed that our formal invitations were almost futile! The website also sets the tone and feeling to our upcoming wedding – that it will be a formal but fun Summer wedding! :)
2. How did you customize your website?
We made sure that the important people in our lives who are going to be part of the bridal party are highlighted. We paid homage to our families and friends who have been very supportive throughout the years. For our bridesmaids and groomsmen, we even gave them a short testimonial each.
We also included a honeyfund registry instead of the traditional department store gift registry. It’s a subtle way of saying we have enough pots and pans in our kitchen. :)
3. Did you customize other elements of your wedding as well? If so, what were they?
Our upcoming wedding will be a combination of a modern and traditional Filipino-American wedding. The wedding rites will include a coin, veil, cord, and candle ceremony. Our 7 pairs of primary sponsors were carefully chosen to serve as our second parents to whom we can depend upon encouragement and counsel in our married years to come.
In addition, with only a day-of wedding coordinator, we are very hands-on when it comes to planning every single detail of the wedding (which we enjoy!). We are blessed to have a graphic designer friend that helped us design our own monogram and formal invitation. We are currently working on our programs, menus, and place cards.
4. What was your favorite feature?
I really like how everything is customizable. I was able to add a few extra pages to the website to personalize it and make it unique – from the bridal party to the gift registry. I would recommend Wedding Window to all brides-to-be!
