Things to Put On a Wedding Website

Things to Put On a Wedding Website

One of the ways we saved money for our wedding was to make most of our wedding invitations digital. It’s 2021 😉 We printed only 25 physical invitations and gave those only to older-generation guests who’d expect it and people who actually save that paper. For all other guests, we sent them the below message through email or facebook messenger:

Hi specific names,

We decided to avoid mailing out physical wedding invitations & instead keep things as digital as possible. Please consider the below URL your formal invitation haha. All information & RSVP can be found at that link. It’s phone-friendly but easier to read on a computer 🙂 

insert URL here


Please let me know if you have any questions. We hope we can see you there!! 


Thanks, Caili & Igor

I have experience designing websites from designing this website. Igor contributed not at all to the wedding website process, but he’s a software engineer so I still got some comments back “tell Igor he did a great job on the website!” lmao

If you’re creating your own wedding website, here are screenshots from mine to see everything we included. Hopefully you find this useful!

A few things to note about our wedding website:

  1. I thought that saying “Respectfully, only the people explicitly named when we sent you this website are invited” in the “THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT OUR WEDDING” section would be sufficient. However, we got a few RSVPs back saying uninvited names were attending… So over time, I added this message again right in the RSVP form where it couldn’t be missed. 
  2. We asked guests to keep phones & camera down during the ceremony on our website. But we also announced it again right before the ceremony began, otherwise this request likely would have been forgotten. 
  3. The RSVP form originally asked people to RSVP two months before our date. Many people did, but many people did not. So be prepared to message individual people directly and remind them to please RSVP. And also be prepared for a bunch of last-minute changes to your guest list the few days before the wedding, too D: 
  4. Highly recommend asking for mailing addresses in the RSVP form! Since we did not send out many paper invitations, doing this was a great way to collect addresses I needed later for thank you cards.

–> Planning a wedding can be overwhelming! But I gotchu 😉 After going to so many events as a photographer, I’ve got plenty of recommendations and experience with everything wedding-related. Click here to learn more about the Caili Chung Photography Wedding Experience <3
