time to propose – a wedding site!

By in facebook, featured, social, web design, WordPress on 28 December 2011

A couple of friends will be getting married this May in Cyprus. Planning a wedding is a big deal for anyone, but if its to take place abroad its quite a scary undertaking – particularly with friends and family scattered as far away as Italy and the United States.

A dedicated website is a great way to reach everyone and for friends to comment and ask questions. So I decided to see what I could come up with. I chose WordPress so I could be sure the couple could update it regularly as things came together.

The site covers the travel arrangements, the hotel booking and details about the venue itself, as well as the usual wedding essentials such as guest and gift lists. The site also features a lot of social linking, so it can be shared via Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to make sure everyone knows about it.

But it needn’t stop at the wedding. That first year together covers the honeymoon, a first house and lots of exciting stuff, so its very much a living thing.

Who knows what happens next. Kids may follow before very long and what better way to chart that great adventure too?
