As you may know by now, we're big advocates of wedding websites.
While you might not think you need one for your big day, they're an effortless and affordable way to keep on top of the organisation, help your guests plan their trip, and to inform everyone about details like your dress code, registry and bridal party.
Wedding websites are also a veritable lifesaver in the final weeks of wedding planning when there's zero time to field questions on logistics (over, and over again!)
Oh and the best thing about wedding websites? They're gorgeous. Really gorgeous. Especially if they're created by the wonderful, Riley & Grey.
We've been loving Riley & Grey's stylish wedding websites for a while now, but it seems every time we go back to play around with their templates, there's beautiful new designs, nifty new features, and even easier usability.
Luxe Look & Feel
Many people expect a site you customise yourself to look and feel pretty amateurish. But these sites are pure luxury in website form!
We love how Riley & Grey have limited edition designs that are influenced by the most current trends in not just weddings, but fashion and interiors too. This means your chosen template can really reflect your every day style as a couple.
Not only do their websites look luxurious, but they work beautifully too, with slick details and a mobile experience that works just like an app (without the messiness of asking your guests to download).
An Effortless Experience
Wedding websites often put technophobes off, but after trying them ourselves, we can confirm that Riley & Grey's websites are so easy to create. Even the most novice brides or grooms will be able to upload their engagement photos, add details on their bridal party, and set up information on events, accommodation and travel.
Riley & Grey have excellent customer service with someone always on hand to help if you get stuck. Plus, you can build your whole site and see how it looks before you make your purchase. You'll also get your own custom domain included with every site, so whether you want JennyandJustin, JustinLovesJenny or JJGetHitchedinCabo, you can create something that works for you.
And our favourite new feature, Riley & Grey have just launched a collaboration with incredible stationers Lucky Luxe, so you can now coordinate your wedding website with your paper invitations – handy, right?
Wedding websites are so much more than just another wedding add-on. They can be a really useful planning tool.
You can make an amazing first impression for your guests with a luxury site that's modern, stylish and sleek.
You can gather addresses, manage RSVPs, co-ordinate pre and post-wedding events, and share important information with your guests in an easy, and beautiful way. (So much easier/cost-effective than including a whole booklet of information with your pretty paper invites!)
Editable any time, it means you can let your guests know about travel and accommodation early on, but still add more information on timings or menus as you get it, which comes in so handy for guests travelling from afar when the usual six to 12 week invitation etiquette is cutting it tight for flights or hotels.
Plus, they can access your site (and it will look just as pretty!) on tablets, phones and laptops.
It's also a gorgeous way to showcase your engagement photos, and get your guests excited about your love story, your next chapter, and your big day!
We're pretty sure you must be convinced by now to create a wedding website of your own with Riley & Grey, but if not, these gorgeous template designs should to the trick!
