I looked through hundreds of wedding websites to find the most stylish and informative examples.
Here are the keys I discovered to a great wedding website:
Hopefully, this collection inspires you to create your own website.
Mary Jo & Adam are getting married in June 2024. They have created a clean, modern-looking wedding website for guests to find all the needed information.
The website hero features a large, high-quality image of the couple with the Chicago skyline in the background. It immediately sets the scene for the wedding location and gives a personal touch. The wedding date is also mentioned right there.
Next in the visual hierarchy is a split navigation bar, with the right side dedicated to the RSVP button and the left side with items to access important pages (our story, travel, things to do in Chicago, registry, and FAQs). All pages have relevant photographs and minimally-written stories/information — for example, here’s the ‘our story’ page:
The site’s soft light blue background that gently contrasts with the white text gives it a serene and welcoming look. The elegant serif font for titles and names and the sans-serif font for other details provide a modern, legible, and easy-to-navigate website. Additional images of the couple embedded within the content add to the narrative and visual interest of the page.
Other details I liked:
Shail & Yusuf’s wedding website design is minimalistic and elegant.
At the same time, the website has a structured, easy-to-follow layout:
Plus, of course, there are photos of the beautiful couple. I’d have loved to see more pictures or even a gallery of photos (especially the wedding ones since they married in December 2023), but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a well-designed, elegant wedding website.
Chole & Jack’s wedding website is likely professionally designed.
The use of a sepia-toned backdrop with red accents gives the site a vintage and classic look. So does the retro font used for the big text headings — the HWT Aetna, a Roman style of wood type font. The central image, a black-and-white photograph of the couple, reinforces the retro theme.
The design style, of course, doesn’t come in the way of functional effectiveness:
The homepage of Rush & Danit’s wedding website is unique, not in its design but in its content. They use their childhood photos instead of your typical beautifully shot couple photos — it’s an idea you might like to use in your wedding website, especially if you met as kids :)
The inside of the website is like your typical, well-designed wedding website. Good fonts, a nice logo, beautiful pictures, and easy navigation to RSVP, Gifts, and more make up this wedding website.
Most of the sites on this list are elegant and sophisticated, which is the norm (and a safe bet for wedding websites). But this site has personality: It doesn’t look modern (likely because it was made 5 years ago), nor does it have those curvy fonts or professionally shot photos. But it feels personal, which is, in a sense, the highest compliment for a wedding website.
It’s quirky throughout — from the site title being “our dumb wedding site” to the wedding ceremony location described - “France…lol jk, it’s in Baltimore.”
For pretty much any other type of website, an unclear/twisted description of something essential like the location is a big NO, but it’s fine here.
Emily & Manuel are getting married in April 2024, and they have waited 2,994 days for the moment — which they mention above the fold on their website. I like it.
I also like the “party accordingly” phrase that’s right after — it hints at a big, enjoyable wedding party. The “I’ll Be There” CTA, instead of having two buttons that read “RSVP,” is also clever yet clear — I like that too.
Alex and Bailey are getting married in 2024, 199 days from today (4th October, 2024) — congrats to the couple! How do I know that? Well, that’s one of the first things you see on the website: “[Number Of Remaining Days] DAYS TO THE EVENT”.
Other things you see at first glance include a beautifully shot photo of the proposal and a well-designed menu bar that takes to the important sections of this one-page website (Home, Our Story, The Details, Gallery, Wedding Party, Travel Guide, FAQs, Registry).
All sections look excellent, but I particularly like this simple ‘Our Story’ section:
Beautiful photos, beautiful fonts, a beautiful story, and a beautiful couple make this beautiful wedding website.
The website, of course, also has the obvious:
Heather & Jon’s wedding website features pictures that are bright and exciting. The font and color scheme also go nicely with the website theme, making for an overall aesthetically excellent website.
On the functional side, the site uses an obvious layout with topbar navigation to important pages - Our Story, Travel, and Wedding Festivities. There’s also an RSVP CTA (Call-to-action), so the visitors can quickly confirm that they’re coming!
The site has clean, neutral colors and a splash of fun with candid photo reels. It’s super easy to navigate and full of information for their big day that makes accommodations easy for guests.
The Music Requests! page on the website is a nice touch!
This website is minimal but not in the traditional sense, i.e., it doesn’t have plenty of whitespaces or anything. Though it has to-the-point text for each page (in the form of a story ), showcased alongside big, full-sized photos of the couple — which I consider minimal.
Sam and DJ’s love story is as modern as it gets: It started with a right swipe on Tinder. And therefore, this beautiful, modern website not only looks great from a web design perspective but also fits their story well.
This site has awesome photography of everything — from the couple and their beloved dog, Layla, to hotel rooms and locations. And all pages are filled with photos! Overall, it’s sophisticated and functional.
Kelly & Alexei’s wedding website doesn’t have the classic “wedding website” feel to it, yet it manages to do what the website is supposed to: take RSVPs and give important information.
I am not a big fan of the styling choice, but I do like the functional effectiveness:
Razia & Aazib’s wedding website is also unique but in a different way. They have converted the traditional wedding card design into a website form + have web elements like an online form for RSVP.
Jess and Chris have a bold-colored, somewhat illustrated wedding website. Details from their past, present, and future can be found in high-quality photography.
As an outsider, you might find the details and stories of each bridesmaid and groomsman a bit overwhelming, especially because everything’s on a single page, but there’s sentimental value + quick navigation right at the top for those who want to quickly RSVP or see wedding party details.
Another wedding website with great pictures, a good color scheme, and essential pages. (They probably didn’t need people to RSVP so it doesn’t have any CTA).
The special thing about this website is it’s a free website, unlike most others.
A unique, likely professionally-designed website with great fonts and flow. I especially love this “The history of the love world” story section:
James and Laura show off their eclectic and vintage taste with fun photos of themselves, and of the venue as well. Guests can envision the ambiance for what the wedding itself will be like in beautiful London.
I like this website — it uses a curvy font up top to make it look elegant and uses the classic Garamond font for other details to maintain legibility. And, of course, it has beautiful photos and clear navigation that achieves the website’s goal.
Tori and José are getting married in September and have started wedding preparations early. Among other things they’re already done, they’ve built a nice wedding website and registered a solid domain name: toriscupofjo.com.
This wedding website is organized page by page, providing all the necessary information for their guests. Beautiful engagement photos and the website itself, both have a moody ambiance.
The website design is modern…if you can’t tell just by a look at it or the wedding date, the “Join us online via Zoom” might help ;)
This wedding day website features a single scrolling page broken up into the necessities, and then some. Their bubbly engagement pictures are emphasized with pink tones and a pop quiz for guests to test who knows the couple best.
On tiny criticism: The top menu is not clearly visible, but hey, the loved ones will find it!
Andrew and Delphine created a website that is clean-cut and well-designed. The layout, high-quality pictures, and quirky writing make it a fun reflection of who they are as a couple.
The website is as functional as it is beautiful. The top bar menu has links to all the important pages for wedding guests - Livestream, Wedding day info (dress code, location, etc.), Gift registry, and seating chart (which also serves as a guest list). And, on the opposite side of the menu is an easily visible RSVP button.
This website looks like an information website — there’s no story or anything personal; just information the guests might need. The font also doesn’t look very wedding-y. But it’s a good, unique website layout you can replicate for your site.
Let’s finish with a website that showcases how important the couple’s photos are (by eliminating them).
Rachel and Dan are getting married on August 17, 2024. They have a gorgeous website with nice artwork, a well-designed logo, lovely typography, and all important details - events, stay, things to do, registry, etc.
However, they don’t have their photos, which makes the website incomplete, in our opinion.
As we mentioned in the introduction, one of the things that makes a great wedding website is: “Celebrate the Moment — Photography of the couple should be front and center. That’s who guests are here to celebrate!”
Madi & Renoir’s short, one-page wedding website succinctly gives all the details to the guests at a glance, including date, location, and attire. RSVP is streamlined with an embedded form right on the homepage. Extra information, such as parking and accommodations, is also provided.
This website uses a monochrome color scheme with a muted background image to create a sophisticated feel (I am not sure how much of it is achieved though). Bold modern fonts provide high readability, and the clean layout strikes a good balance between text and whitespace for an uncluttered presentation.
End Note:. We update this collection with new, well-designed wedding websites from time to time, but…
People tend to let their wedding websites expire, so some of the websites we have featured above might not be available at the time you are reading the article. You can let us know of such instances and we’ll remove/replace them ASAP.
Yes, you should put the wedding website link in the save-the-dates. It helps guests in finding more information about the wedding.
You can start creating your wedding website as soon as you have set the wedding date and booked your wedding venue.
From a functional point of view, a good wedding website includes the schedule of events, locations for those events, travel info, dress code details, accommodations, registry, and RSVP. Apart from that, it should have images of the couple and their love story. Everything else is optional.
From the ones we've tested, Squarespace is the best because of its beautiful templates and ease of use. However, we haven't tested more niche builders like The Knot, WeddingWire, Minted, Zola, etc., so we can't comment on any of those.
