[ How to ] Get Inspired to Create a Wedding Website

Technology is inspiring culture shifts, and that includes how we talk about our weddings. Today's couples are using many different ways to share their announcement, engagement photos, and now everybody has a wedding website or Facebook page to let everyone know what's going on.  You could even create a private group on Minigroup, so your wedding info isn't on Facebook.  

There are many ways to do a wedding website.  Today's blog is about highlighting some of the real sites that are being used today by real couples.   The Dessy Group has created a way for folks to nominate wedding websites to appear on this site, which happens to show not only one site, but the best of all the sites that provide this capability.

So, head on over to The Perfect Couple to browse through real wedding websites that couples are using to share the information about the big day.  Which website are you using?  Please comment below, so we know what our readers are using!  Thanks for reading and we hope this helps you determine where and how to share your wedding details.

It's time to shed old ways of doing things and embrace technology to make our lives easier.  One example is the ability to share multiple links with only one link.  You can make a list of possible florists, caterers and photographers.  You could make another list of airlines that take you to your destination.  Or create another list of links that are of just shoes that you might be needing for your adventure wedding in the Rocky Mountains!

During your wedding planning, you'll be sending numerous emails, making many phone calls, and exchanging a lot of information.  This is a tool that vendors can use to link to past media and press, such as this link http://www.multiurl.com/g/6vJ does for Creative Flowers Inc | Petal and Bean.  Now, most of these links can be found on this page on our flower shop website, but is much easier to use instead of clicking on each link from the web page.

For couples planning their wedding and exploring different lodging options in Breckenridge, and you want to share a list of possible lodging companies, you can end up typing many links into numerous emails.  Do a bit of legwork up front, and use one link to send to your planning team.

You can then navigate the links by a toolbar found in the top left of the screen, or you can use a dropdown menu of the sites sent.  Please visit www.multiurl.com to learn more.
