We were recently asked to design a simple wedding website for a couple based in North Devon, using WordPress and Oxygen builder. With kind permission from the newlyweds, below is a short account of the design and branding process.
A wedding website is a great opportunity to provide all the essential information about your special day to your guests. This project was exciting and a nice break from the regular web design endeavors we are normally used to at FVM.
So, if you’re thinking about creating a wedding website for your big day, what pages or features should you include?
Here are some ideas for you to consider –
- Share your love story.
- Add details about the ceremony such as venue, date, and time.
- Ceremony attendance form (RSVP).
- Add dress code details.
- Outline transportation and accomodation details.
- Add a gift registery page.
- Include photos (After the big day).
- Include rules of posting on social media.
- Add a simple contact form.
The process of designing The Lennan Wedding website
After a short consultation, we got a clear idea of what the couple wanted for their wedding invite design and website. Nothing over the top, something simple and elegant and easy for their guests to use. And something that provided enough information about their special day.
The couple had already purchased their domain and hosting with Bluehost (Affiliate link).
We started with the wedding invite design, which had to be special! The client requested the use of Pampas grass and Eucalyptus leaves in the design. After doing some research and creating several drafts that we presented to the couple, they were happy to go forward with the following final render:
Once the wedding invite design was signed off, it was off to the printers! The couple was very excited to receive their freshly printed wedding invites in the post within a week.
The Wedding Website
The site is built on WordPress using Oxygen Builder and the WPForms Pro plugin. The brand colors selected for this project is shown below:
WPForms was used to create the custom RSVP and menu order form. See the image below.
Final tweaks were made to ensure the website was mobile-friendly for the guests. This meant tweaking all the interactive elements, such as the navigation and CTA buttons on the RSVP form.
And the final result?
A clean wedding website was ready for the guests to visit and confirm their invites and select their food and drinks!
