Intimate Wedding Info

When the dates of your wedding have been postponed and you are now planning to host an intimate wedding with a handful of your people instead of teh big fat wedding guest list, you must keep your guests informed as to how you are taking your wedding forward with only your closes family members owing to the restrictions of a 100-people wedding and also the travel regulations. A personal call might work wonders and take a lot of time too, this is why we suggest you put the details of your intimate wedding on your website. 

Tip: Try and avoid posting the guest list publicly for everyone who has access to your wedding website to see. here might be issues like "why is a particular aunt invited but not them" and so on. Avoid any such glitches.

Virtual Wedding Details

While intimate weddings are ruling the day, many couples are hosting a virtual wedding too. Some other couples are planning their intimate wedding along with some virtual traditions and elements included. In such cases, you must include the ways to join the virtual wedding, when to join, what to wear, virtual wedding guest etiquette and so on, on your wedding website. While sending personal messages and calling them up might not be a bad idea, your guests can always log in to re-confirm everything on your website without much to and fro.

Personal Stories

Adding that personal note for all to read and go aww is a must every time you create your wedding website. There is a time that suits perfectly for you to share your wedding website with your loved one and right before sharing it make sure to have included a little "How we met" story or a "How it all happened" one on the website along with all the other technical details. There will be guests from both sides of the family who will not be well-acquainted with you or your partner and a personal story for intro will make a whole lot of difference.

Video Updates

Since many of your relatives who planned to be there early for your wedding for all the BTS fun are now stuck at home because of the travel restrictions, you might want to provide some behind the scenes videos for them to enjoy. You need not be all professional while shooting it, keep it strictly candid and let your guests enjoy it on your website. For instance, if you have any DIY plans for your wedding and are all hands-on board in the house while creating it - make a video of how you are doing it and how your sibling has managed to mess it up. It sure will bring a smile and make your guests feel more involved.

The itinerary is one of the core requirements of a wedding website. While you put a bullet point for each celebration along with the time for your guests to be well aware and to make it smooth, make sure to keep the itinerary well updated to. There could be random changes, for instance, the time to host the Haldi ceremony might be preponed by an hour due to some entry restrictions in your society. in such cases update the itinerary immediately. For the guests driving down in their own vehicles, you can also provide a detailed route map to make their travel safe and smooth.

The Hashtag

It is mandatory to have a wedding hashtag well beforehand. In fact, get your hands on a perfect hashtag for your wedding before you start planning the wedding in full swing. The hashtag will help people post pictures all in one place. For the guests who will not be able to attend the wedding in person, they can use your hashtags and post pictures of how excited they are or give a special countdown of images and little stories on social media platforms for your wedding with the hashtag.

Whether your guests will be present in person or bless your new beginnings over a video call, the guest book is a place where you can assemble and keep all the wishes. All of your guests must have something or the other to say to you - be it their blessings or be it a funny story, and making the guest book accessible to them at all times is a good way of making them feel a part of the wedding despite what the circumstances stand for.
