Squarespace helps anyone build a beautiful wedding website online. We know what you’re thinking…in the midst of wedding planning how on earth am I going to make time to build a website? Don’t stress, Squarespace has seriously made it SO easy! By blending elegant design and sophisticated engineering, they empower couples to share their stories with the world. A beautiful wedding site shares your occasion with family and friends, acting as an announcement, invitation, RSVP, and more. In this guide, we’ll cover selecting the right template to celebrate your special day and specific Squarespace features to show off photos, create an easy RSVP form, and share your story with your guests.

STEP 1: Select a Template

Squarespace has this dialed in, gals! They have developed templates built with weddings in mind, complete with samples! From large scrolling banners to demo content designed to inspire, these templates will get your wedding site online quickly AND with ease! You can check out wedding templates here!

STEP 2: Own Your Name

All Squarespace sites on an annual billing plan receive a free domain for the first year! That’s right…free! Using a memorable name, such as the two of your names or a fun inside joke, helps guests remember your URL, making it easy to pull up your wedding site at anytime on a mobile device to check directions, show off a photo, or find links to your registry.

STEP 3: Create an RSVP Form

Streamline the RSVP process with a customizable Form Block. By connecting your RSVP form to storage options—an email address, Google Sheet, or MailChimp list—you can keep your guest list organized and stay in touch about any adjustments to the big day’s schedule.

STEP 4: Show Off Your Gorgeous Photos

Depending on your template, you can use engagement photos and snapshots of cherished memories as banner or background images. This puts the happy couple front and center, making a strong visual impression. You can also include gallery pages to help share your story!
STEP 5: Display event details

A wedding site serves as an accessible reminder for locations, schedules, and other essential details. A Map Block helps guests locate your venue, while Text Blocks with formatted headings make it easy to spot crucial information, even when glancing at a mobile display. Finally, the Menu Block displays menus and lists ingredients, helping accommodate guests with food preferences, allergies, or dietary restrictions.

STEP 6: Add registries

Use the Zola Block to display a selection of items from your Zola wedding registry in a design that blends in with the page. This is a great way for visitors to browse your wish list without leaving your wedding site. In addition, by using Image Blocks and clickthrough URLs, you can create thumbnail images that link out to multiple registries.

What do you do now! Visit Squarespace and get started! You can even use the website after the event to share photos and videos of the wedding, and as a place to store memories of this special season! Once you get started, make sure to use code GLW to get 10% off your first purchase!

Let me tell you a real story that seriously just happened to a dear friend of mine the other day. We were at the beach with a few good friends hoping to enjoy a perfect summer day! After a few hours of basking in the sun we headed to the boardwalk to cool off with some treats, when my girlfriend looked down and saw that her wedding ring was gone! While lathering on sunscreen she had taken off her ring and forgotten to put it back on! The search party commenced. The tide had risen, her future looking bleak. Her ring was not insured. We were freaking out. Miraculously that night, the ring was found (cue the Hallelujah chorus), but we learned a valuable lesson, get those diamonds insured!

We think that one of the most crucial aspects in planning your wedding, is planning how you will capture the memories you’ll cherish for years to come. Once you’ve booked the perfect photographer, the next step is figuring out what to do with those gorgeous photos! Shutterfly’s Premium Wedding Photo Books are seriously such an amazing choice for creating your own personalized wedding album. Not only are they incredibly easy-to-make, they have tons of different wedding styles available.

Here are some of our favorite aspects about them: they come in size 12×12, which is totally ideal for your coffee table, they have premium cover options available, like crushed silk or leather, they have double-thick, layflat pages, keeps your pretty pages from getting bent or torn, and they have true spread available, which basically means those wide photos get the showcase they deserve as the photographs are able to span across the binding of the book, covering both pages! There is nothing better than actually seeing your photos in real life! By the way, we think these make amazing gifts for your parents after the wedding. Such a fun way for them to see and show off your wedding day!!!

Did we mention how easy they are to make? Shutterfly offers a new Make My Book service where Shutterfly designers will look at your wedding photos and make a beautiful wedding book customized for you! Seriously, ditch the feeling of being completely overwhelmed by choosing your photos (or the daunting task of creating a book!), and pass it off to the pros! The best part, is that you only pay a small fee ($9.99) if you choose to order the book! Risk free, right?

And by the way, have you had the chance to check-out the typical price for an album through your photographer? Let’s be real, most of us just look through our photos on our computers because albums can cost anywhere between hundreds to thousands of dollars. Shutterfly’s wedding books are seriously such a great option. They really do cut out the high price tag, without compromising on the quality, allowing you to cherish and share one of the most important days of your life!

Oh, and side note…these also happen to make the perfect guestbook! Share the story of your love, show off those stunning engagement photos, and create a keepsake signed by your guests! Done and done!

Planning  a wedding is amazing, but when you begin your registry, you start planning your life together, long after the wedding. It’s the dishes you’ll serve your first Christmas meal on, the KitchenAid  you’ll use to teach your daughter to make cookies, the cup of coffee you’ll brew in the morning, in less than a minute thanks to Keurig. We think this process is a seriously important part in preparing to say “I do.”

Kohl’s has all of the staple items you need, at prices you’ll be thrilled about. They carry the brands you trust like KitchenAid, Keurig, Corningware, Pyrex, Cuisinart, OXO, and Food Network.

The even more amazing thing is that they give YOU 10% back on gifts purchased from your Kohl’s Wedding Registry. Which means every time you’re showered with gifts, you get 10% back to grab the things you didn’t get! They also give your guests an extra 20% off in store purchase of $100 or more from your wedding registry, leaving them with even more room in the budget to throw in a few extras for you! **In order for guests to save the 20% on a $100 or more purchase, all they need is an announcement card – which can be printed off the registry page on Kohls.com.

We are over the moon intoxicated by the most fabulous collaboration between Green Wedding Shoes and their friends at Show Me Your Mumu. Show Me Your Mumu designs clothing for carefree adventurers and all their dresses are made here in the US! GWS worked with their design team on an exclusive print inspired by their love of florals that is perfect for your bridesmaids, as a wedding guest, honeymoon or the perfect summer day!

The Kendall Maxi has a soft V neck and low back which is ultra feminine and flatters every body, the wrap around skirt that creates a slit lets you pull an Angelina stance whenever you need (you never know when you’re gonna need it). Chill enough for a little pointy toed bootie and classy enough for an elegant heel. Kendall may be a young Mu but she is definitely on track to be your new go-to maxi.

The Hacienda Maxi with her pretty ruffle is flattering on everyone, and her elastic scrunch neck line will allow you to dance all night long. I think this might just be one of the most versatile dresses we have ever seen. Wear her as a tube dress, off your shoulders, or even on your shoulders if you prefer! Wear her to your bestie’s wedding or in your bestie’s wedding. Dress her down for a moonlight stroll down to the ocean or to that summertime school reunion and you now no longer have to dread finding a dress!

And our personal fave? The King Crop Top and Ballgown Skirt. Your love for the King Crop will make you weak in the knees the second you slip into this little number. Cropped to flatter with your favorite mini skirt, ballgown or swing shorts this top is sure to be a staple in your closet and your LIFE! The skirt is high waisted and zips you up so you look teeny tiny, and then sweeps out so long and full, just like a princess in a ballgown.

For getting ready the day of the wedding, we love our Romper – would make the perfect bridesmaids gift as well, right?

Oh, did we mention that their dresses are very affordable?! (prices range from $96 – $176) And you will definitely wear these dresses again!
