We’re talking about a TIME-SAVING HACK today!

I did a short video about my take on why a wedding website can help you with your wedding planning.

Creating a wedding website might sound time-consuming, but it will actually save you time (trust me).

Hi, there. Carissa Kruse here. I want to talk today about a wedding hack that seems to work really well for couples, and that is to create a wedding website. I know that sounds daunting, but there’s a lot of different apps out there. The Knot, Wedding Wire, just different ones out there that will allow you to create them for free. There are templates, and pretty much just drag and drop and insert.

The reason I really like wedding websites is that you can put all of your information out there. You don’t need to try to put everything onto an invitation or details card or that kind of stuff. You can save money on the invitation side as well if you can include more on the wedding website. The wedding website usually will have your accommodation information if you have guests that are traveling from out of town. It can have RSVP information. A lot of times there’ll be a story like how you got engaged or how you met. You can have fun with it. I know it sounds like, “Oh, more work to do this,” but it’ll actually save you time in the long run if you set that up.

One thing I would suggest is to have your maid of honor help you with it. That way, it doesn’t feel like all of this is weighing on you. Reach out to your maid of honor, see if she’s willing to help because she knows your story a little bit too. She can fill in some of the blanks and get it started. Then you can go in and finalize it, and firm everything up to how you want it to look and be worded.

I didn’t want to take too long today, but that’s a quick hack for how to keep everybody informed and save a little money on the invitation side. If anything changes, like how we’ve had with COVID, you can always keep everything up to date and everybody will know what’s going on. Anyways, I will talk to you guys later. Until next time, bye.

One of my favorite topics is pets. Why? Because it always brings a smile to my face as well as others around me. When we talk about your pets, we immediately feel better, they bring joy to our lives in so many ways. AND… …they are always there for us, am i right? So they […]

Are you someone that wants to have things be even in life!?! I notice this in my life…often. For instance, when I turn the tv volume on, it is always set to an even number…40 (not 41 or 39). Things around us instill an even number. … 10 fingers and 10 toes … Total digits […]
