Matrimony In The Digital Age: Wedding Web Sites
There’s a new method of keeping your wedding memories alive that is gaining popularity among the young couples of today: the wedding web site. Wedding web sites are an online collection of images and stories detailing every facet of a wedding. Everything from choosing bridesmaids’ dresses to ordering the cake and hiring the band is recorded and included on the wedding web site. Many couples keep their wedding web sites up and running after the wedding to serve as a sort of interactive online wedding album, hosting pictures from the ceremony, reception, and honeymoon. One of the nice things about creating a wedding web site for yourself is the flexibility that the process offers. You can include as much or as little information about your wedding as you like.
The site can be used as an electronic go-between, keeping family and friends updated and informed about the tasks you’re completing in preparation for your wedding day, informing your guests of any last minute changes in planning, and letting everyone know details such as where you’re registered for wedding gifts. The site can include a “blog” that you can update as often as you like, allowing you to share every detail of your wedding experience if you so choose. You can also offer your guests the ability to R. online, put up guest lists so everyone knows who’s coming to your special event, and post an interesting history that describes how the two of you met, how long you dated, how he “popped the question,” and any other amusing or romantic anecdotes you desire. If you choose to create a wedding web site there are a number of ways you can go about it. There are web hosting sites online that specialize in setting up and hosting wedding web sites. Most of these offer easy to use do-it-yourself web site building tools. If you’re proficient in web design or own web design software like Front Page or Dreamweaver, you can get even more flexibility by designing the site yourself. You can also hire a professional web designer to create your wedding web site for you. The wedding web site concept is just one more way that weddings are stepping out of the realm of ancient traditionalism and into the information age. Modern technology has created a wonderful way for you to be able to share your wedding memories anytime, anywhere with anyone that has a computer and access to the Internet. Now you don’t have to worry about whether Aunt Edna in Sioux City will ever be able to see your wedding photographs.
You can just send her an email message and give her the URL of your beautiful wedding web site. Your wedding web site is timeless too. As long as you keep paying the hosting (prices for web hosting vary greatly, but can be very low for this type of site), your wedding web site will remain online forever, allowing you to look back many years from now and remember your wedding like it all just happened yesterday.
