Wedding Website Etiquette

In this digital age where everything is done online, most couples choose to have a wedding website and online registries.  What is the best way to let your guests know about these websites?

Online Registries
It is never appropriate to include your online registry information on your Save the Dates or on your actual information.  Remember, you are requesting your guests presence at your wedding, not their presents.  You can however include your registry information on your personal wedding website, that is what it is there for!  Leave it up to your guests to ask where you are registered. 

Wedding Websites
A personalized wedding website is a great tool for a couple to use to let guests know pertinent information about their wedding- directions, location, registry information, etc.  You can even give them the option to RSVP online.

So where can you advertise your wedding website?  The appropriate place would be on your save the date cards, not on your wedding invitation. 

Did you know that we can get you set up with your very own wedding website?  As part of The Luxe Wedding Package we can get you set up with a wedding website that can include an online RSVP feature.

Wedding Insurance

You can never be too careful when it comes to your wedding day.  If it is in your budget, you may want to consider Wedding Insurance.  Policies can range from as little as a couple hundred dollars but can save you thousands and provide some peace of mind when the unexpected happens at your wedding.

You have a few options when it comes to wedding insurance: Event Insurance covers any damage to your wedding gown, etc, vendor no-shows, weather cancellations, illness cancellations.

Also available is Wedding Liability Insurance that protects you from any injuries or property damage that that takes place at your wedding.  For these two types of wedding insurance check out WedSafe and Travelers.

Not covered by WedSafe and Travelers is Change of Heart Insurance.  Heaven forbid you or your spouse gets cold feet and the wedding is cancelled.  If you forsee this being a possibility you may want to consider this type of insurance which you can buy through Fireman's Fund.

We sincerely hope that your wedding days goes off without a hitch and you will never have to submit a wedding insurance claim!
