When Erin and James set out to create a fantastic wedding website, they turned to Squarespace to help them create a site that matched their vision for their big day. Using their engagement photos, Erin designed her Save-the-Date cards and was able to use that inspiration to complete the look and feel of their site. One quick look and you’ll easily see that the Burakins were inspired by letterpress and maintained a vintage, rustic, handcrafted vibe throughout their website and paper goods!
I love the way Erin and James’s background of historic Milwaukee blends with the rustic typography and orange color scheme. The look is consistent and cohesive through out! Be sure to check out the Burazin‘s real wedding website for more inspiration!
What I love most about Squarespace is the ability to focus on the most important elements of your wedding day. You’ve just begun the wedding planning stages and starting with a wedding website that matches your vision will bring it all to life! When creating your wedding website start by asking yourself, “What are my goals? What is the purpose of this website?” You have a unique opportunity to use this space for far more details than a place to repeat the information on your invitation! While you’ll want to include the basics you have the chance to do something unique that will add value to your wedding day memories. Share a hashtag, in advance, for continuity! It is so easy to highlight things like your How We Met Story or quickly add a list of favorite area restaurants for out of town guests. Add something special as you blend your two families and include a section that honors your parents and loved ones.
Color schemes and web fonts offered will help create a consistent vision for your wedding day. Finding ways to incorporate your patterns and textures will add dimension to your site! Designing your site with your wedding vision in mind is elegantly simple! The clean, aesthetically pleasing templates are the perfect space to fill with your engagement photos. Squarespace makes it so easy to drag and drop images and text to change the layout of the page. You’ll be able to create a gallery with just a handful of photos and you will love how fantastic the homepage looks with your gorgeous photo as the background. Wouldn’t it be fun to include a relationship timeline?
Seriously, ANYBODY can create a gorgeous, personalized website using Squarespace but just in case you are still fretting over your tech skills Squarespace offers a 20 minute Wedding Website Workshop and 24/7 support! You’ll be sharing your website with friends and family in no time.
