Charleston, South Carolina is known for its abundance of stunning wedding venues, making it a hot spot for destination weddings. Whether you are a local planning a wedding in your own home town or planning a destination wedding, you’ll want to organize the details of your wedding day as best as possible for your guests. Charleston wedding planners recommend creating a wedding website as one of the simplest ways to keep all of your wedding details in one place. Free, easy to use sites we recommend are Zola and The Knot.
Here are a few tips on what you should absolutely include on your Charleston wedding website!
Schedule of events
Rehearsal Dinner, Welcome Party, Wedding, Farewell Brunch..
Whether you’re planning for just the wedding day or a whole wedding weekend, it’s important to make sure your guests know where they should be and when they should be there. Laying out the schedule of events (date, time and address) for the weekend is the best way to keep everyone in the know and more importantly – on time! Be sure to include links to all of your venues so the excitement can build for your big day.
Casual, Cocktail, Semi-Formal, Formal, Black Tie..
Informing your guests of the dress code on your wedding website will ensure they look cohesive with the style of your event and should eliminate having to answer the same question over and over!
Travel and Accommodations
This is where you should list information about the airport as well as any hotels you may have room blocks with for your wedding. Be sure to remind your guests of the hotels that are closest to your venues so they know if they need to rent a car.
Transportation and Parking
If you are providing transportation for your guests, great! Let them know the pickup location and time. If not, that’s okay too! Just make sure you provide your guests with easy-to-follow directions and any information about parking they may need to prepare for.
Once you’ve added all the important details for your wedding day, don’t forget to add some fun too! Your guests will love to read about your story as a couple, sneak a peek at your wedding party and have easy access to your registry.

As Charleston Wedding Planners, we know how easy it is for guests to overlook most basic details. Be sure to have your Wedding Planner in Charleston review it so that all of the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. Your Luxury Wedding Planner will also want you to make sure your wedding website is live before your Save the Dates go out.
Don’t forget to create your wedding website for a seamless, stress-free weekend!
