Jonathan and Anna’s site is our featured WeddingWindow.com wedding website of the week. We love the minimalistic approach to color — it really draws the eye to the gorgeous black and white photography. Nice work! Congratulations Jonathan and Anna!
WeddingWindow.com Website Design: “Classic”
1. How has your website been most helpful in planning your wedding?
So far, we have used the page for submitting addresses the most. Not only can we go in and enter as many addresses as we want, our friends and family have been able to enter their address and contact information. We were so impressed with the spreadsheet we exported with all of the addresses and contact information. We will also be using our website for online RSVP which we know is going to help a lot! In general, we’ve also just enjoyed being able to blog and write about what’s going on with our wedding planning. Our friends and family have told us they like to keep up with us by visiting our website.
2. How did you customize your website?
The first thing we did to customize our website was to purchase a domain name for our site. This option was great because our friends and family have been able to remember our site because of it’s easy URL. We also customized it by using some of our wedding colors as the main colors for the site. We were also fortunate to have a friend who took some great pictures of us to use on the website. These pictures turned out great and you can see them on almost every page of our the site. We also were able to upload PDF’s of our ceremony and reception directions on to the “Directions” page. We put these together ourselves, and these PDF’s are pages that our guests can print out before they come to our wedding.
3. Did you customize other elements of your wedding as well? If so, what were they?
Yes! We are hand-making part of our invitations and we also designed them ourselves. We are very detail-oriented people, so designing our own invitations was great for us because we were able to make them exactly the way we wanted.
4. What was your favorite website feature?
Our favorite feature of our website is probably the same thing that we said was most helpful- “Submit Your Address” and online RSVP. It is so nice to have this data together and organized.
Other than that, just having our own website in general is so great. It is helping us to make our wedding day even more special and give it an even more personal touch.
