One of the most complicated aspects of planning a wedding is often mastering the art of clear communication. There are typically many people involved in planning a wedding, and it’s critical that everyone knows the details of their specific role and how it relates to all of the other moving parts. One thing’s for sure—without clear communication throughout every aspect of the planning process, a wedding day can quickly become disorganized.
From sending save the dates and official invites to researching and sharing accommodation options, publishing your gift registry, managing RSVPs, coordinating transportation, and more, there are a lot of things you need to let your guests know before they arrive. You don’t want anyone missing any of the important parts of your day, or not getting the memo about the dress code!
Of course, we recommend using a wedding planner to help you iron out all the details. But if you want a convenient and fun place to display all that key information, there are plenty of options out there to help keep all that information in one place, on your wedding website.
