When it comes to planning a wedding I think we can all agree that it can be quite stressful at times. Even the most organised of brides and grooms can become lost in a sea of spreadsheets and scribbled wedding planners.
A wedding planning website is a great solution, bringing all elements of planning a wedding together into one manageable place.
We have scoured the internet to bring together our 5 top free wedding planning websites.
This particular wedding planning website is extremely modern with focus on easy usability, stunning layouts and a seamless mobile friendly design which is essential in this day and age!
Getting Married makes communicating with your guests super easy. You can share the website log in with your guests to give them access to the plan of the day, the food menu, the gift list, transport and travel options and of course the notoriously challenging RSVP!
One feature we love about this wedding planning website is that you can add a ‘lift sharing’ page where guests can offer shared driving to reduce the strain on guests, parking and the environment.
Hitched is an all encompassing website for the bride and groom to plan their perfect wedding. Those who love to make lists will be glad to hear that you can compile and manage your to do list, guest list and gift list directly on this platform as well as your budget.
At hitched you can also create mood boards which is a great idea before going ahead and booking the elements which make up your big day.
Once you feel you are ready to start booking, Hitched gives you access to a huge variety of suppliers including venues, photographers, caterers, bridal-wear shops, florists, entertainers and just about everything in-between!
Luv Birds is ideal for those who are not very tech savvy. It is claimed that it is so easy to use that you can make your wedding website in just 60 seconds!
Much like gettingmarried.com, this wedding planning website can be used by guests too, providing them access to wedding day details, transport, travel, RSVPs and gift list. One excellent feature which luvbirds.com offers is the option to add a ‘honeymoon fund’ which allows guests to contribute to your post-wedding travels via PayPal.
This wedding planning site is ideal for those in the early stages of wedding planning as it offers a huge amount of advice and content providing that essential knowledge and inspiration. It also provides a place to hold your budget details, checklists and guest list as well as being home to a wide variety of wedding suppliers. One feature which we love about this wedding website is the ‘favourites’ feature which allows you to earmark your preferred suppliers as you go along.
Combine some of the best features from the above websites and you get Wedding Wire. Here you can create your own wedding website with guest access for all of the essentials such as the day plan, RSVPs and gift lists but you can also use Wedding Wire to do you private planning too.
There are sections for check lists, guest lists and budgets, but one thing we really love about this website is the seating plan feature which allows you to easy arrange your guests and shuffle them around accordingly. No need for all of that scrap paper!
And remember if you ever have any queries or unanswered questions, ask your Venue!
